Underlying Honesty

"Freedom" to Americans apparently means "freedom to cheat." But there had to be some kind of underlying honesty --- otherwise, capitalism could not have succeeded.

So the idea here is that capitalism creates something that I call "social connection."

In practice, it does just the opposite of what hypocrites and liars think they are doing. What they believe it is and what it is are not the same thing. What they actually create is not selfishness but sociality. And I suppose that if this element of sociality is not preserved, everything would just naturally just crash. How to preserve the precious sociality? Which, by the way, we were not admitting (existed).
There is a way. This appears to be the basic trade idea I had. Now go you have to go to the August 10th post. OK?
