I'm all over the place. I recognise the damage uncontrolled capitalism can and does cause, but I also recognise big all powerful (they wish) governments are also disastrous for the public. Somehow we've managed to get both going, uber states helping the private sector plunder the population...
"Marketing of Plant Reproductive Material (PRM)" by the EU is a perfect example of that. A super government using its stolen authority to help a private entity like Monsanto gain a monopoly, which would help Monsanto dominate most of Europe regardless of what the public have to say about it! Thankfully mass public protest
has hurt their plans, but its still bad and can go worse in revisions.
We do seem to be living in the worst of all worlds, with a out of control private sector and a bloated state serving its own ends. How then can I comfortably sit in any one ideology?
If I'm pro business I'm ignoring the damage and suffering they are causing, that tax rates are irrelevant if they don't pay any tax to begin with and that they seem to continuously get away with breaking the law. So the idea of further deregulating and de-taxing them seems absurd, even while I recognise taxes are choking this country (the none globalist companies who have no choice but to pay them).
But if I'm pro government I'm ignoring that the state is already so large that it's bankrupt, it's bigger than the private sector in this country which is unsustainable, the political class are crooked as we keep discovering and they really couldn't care less about the public they're supposed to be representing. In the UK the government is by and for the city, the rest of the country could rot for all they care. We're the only country in the EU standing up for the banks, we're the only country in the EU lobbying to legalise GMOs. The city owns our government and tells it what to do basically...
There is strong evidence for both sides criticisms of the other side... What's one to do >.=.>
