Actually, no it is not.
When I say "system", I am not talking simply about capitalism. I am talking about the American context in which that capitalism operates. That encompasses a number of issues, which have changed over the past 50 years, and not always for the better.
For one example, the role of the millitary industrial complex has changed. It's not always static.
Even 666 agrees that it's a problem. There are other variables that have, and are, changing as well.
