You have it the wrong way. It is this predatory attitude, capitalistic, socialistic or whatever that produces the geopolitical and economic situation in which we are living. Eating your neighbor is the law of any economic system. You can do it by enslavingh thelm, like African Blacks in the USA of old and still today in prisons. Or you can just make them dependent on your own “help” which will bleed them to death like colonialism of old, and neocolonialism of today. The predatory spirit, attitude, behavior or even faith-belief-creed if not “religion” is inscvribed in all economic system. How can we make sure this does not take over the world and one individual country starts sending troops all over, or pounding sanctions everywhere, or imposing tariffs everywhere? It has nothing to do with capitalism and it is teh negation of what enabled Homo Sapiens to become what we are: they had to live on sharing solidarity within each group or tribe and within as many tribes as possible to avoid inbreeding some 300,000 years ago. Why did that spirit disappear in some people, in some social groups, in some countries?
