Sacrosanct capitalism searches causes behind the Great Financial Crisis among individuals instead of in the system it owns and operates, and fails to nab the culprits, the individuals involved with the crisis. The act and the failure reiterate the fact mentioned many years ago: the entire capitalist system safeguards capital, and governing machines – finance regulatory, law enforcement or whatever it is – are not class-neutral. The failure to nab culprits, the system’s in-built friend-foe-within, signifies class solidarity of capital’s ruling machine.
Reports by the US governing system, and from media, an ideal sample for study, tell reality of class solidarity. Based on (and liberally quoted from) these reports the old pattern of failure and collaboration is reiterated: as class-tool, state’s first job is to defend dominating interests.
