Letter: Capitalism has run amok to America’s detriment

Karl Marx wrote that “capitalism sows the seeds of it’s own destruction.” Capitalism has commodified everything for the sake of profit. Has anyone noticed what is happening to the planet earth? Capitalism is consuming the planet along with itself!

In the quest for ever more profit, companies move to Mexico and China for cheaper labor. The political system is bought off to spit out propaganda that preaches American exceptionalism while the country disintegrates. China is the new market with a billion people. After cheap labor and new markets are used up capitalism will have nowhere else to go. There is another major problem. When there are no jobs left because they have been expunged for more profit, there is no one left to buy the goods capitalism produces. Karl Marx understood this. So did Henry Ford!
