I am unsure why people call the current economic system "capitalism". There are almost no capitalistic tropes to the current system. It is more like a socialist society. Almost every aspect of our lives is controlled by government, even through corporations by proxy, but not directly by corporations exactly. It is just weird to me to hear so much blamed on a system of economics that doesn't even exist today.

Is Google controlled by a government?

Is google a government?

Or maybe it's a state-like entity within another state? I think those were called mafias?


@Wolf480pl Not a government, but many of their actions are controlled by the government.
