: : How come this:
: : "We are concerned about inequality precisely because it upsets us Emotionally to witness suffering. (and this trait is a biological given - though it may be, and has been, subverted)"
SDF: I think I'm concerned with inequality not out of any Pavlovian reflex but rather out of the knowledge that everyone could have a BETTER SOCIETY if the "production lines of inequality" were halted once and for all. This knowledge is a cultural product. And what's more, I'm right.
: : : Then there is the matter of 'creeping privilege'. These are concerns about those objective expressions of values (Me First) that are integral to the Capitalist System.
SDF: Possessive individualism is culturally-determined too. What's more, I would argue that there are cultural variants upon capitalist systems... US capitalism, British capitalism, Japanese capitalism, etc. This "capitalism creates its own gravediggers" notion, though, appears to me to be completely unproven.
