Simply put :

if capitalism were for 'the general good'
care-workers, cleaners and nurses
would not be near the bottom
of the economic heap.

Good old Ginsberg's theorem:
1. You can’t win.
2. You can’t break even.
3. You can’t even get out of the game.

And more important Freeman’s Commentary on Ginsberg’s theorem
1. Capitalism is based on the assumption that you can win.
2. Socialism is based on the assumption that you can break even.
3. Mysticism is based on the assumption that you can quit the game.

These assumptions are predicated on the bizarre and pernicious and ridiculously binary idea of Winning/Losing. But Mysticism "wins" - provided you have the moral courage to quit "the game". Mysticism is simply the vehicle; moral courage is the horse-power. The horse is, of course, divine.

Divine hu?
In that case, may I ask what do you think about heretism of first-heretic-to-receive-capital-punishment: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Priscillianism?wprov=sfla1

That page is as clear as mud.

Did you know that (idolatrous) representations of the crucifixion didn't appear until the 4th century ?
