The past 30 years actually have seen a dramatic decrease in global poverty along with a stagnation in median incomes in developing countries, neither of which is the fault of the Jews or any other cabal of sinister capitalists.  Globalization placed poor Asians in competition for the same jobs as working class people in the US and Europe with the result that Asian incomes increased while Western incomes stagnated

True, but US wealth inequality has seen a dramatic increase in the same time.

I'll wind up here with a quote from Fassbinder: 'Terrorism is an idea generated by capitalism to justify better defense measures to safeguard capitalism.'

Yes if the utterings of a Lamborghini- buying cocaine commie canít be taken as the authoritative final word on the topic, then what can?

Not to mention that it is only in a "capitalistic" society that he could lead his eccentric and provocative lifestyle. In any other it would have landed him in jail.  ;D

It's a verified fact, time and again, that those who complain most vociferously about "capitalism" are sometimes those who benefit the most from it.

That is so funny. You have provided some confirmation for Fassbinder's assertion.

By pointing out there's no reason to think he knows better than the average person in the street?

The better position is that capitalism in conjunction with our current political system has made it reasonable for some people to think that random mass murder is the best way to alleviate their problems.
