Isn't a free-market capitalist democracy what we all really want? If we all become wealthier doesn't that mean we can get more of what we want? Capitalism naturally leads to democracy and vice versa here too. In time it will become a truism. For the rich to enrich themselves, the engines of the economy must be fed and that's the people. People buying and selling, making and using, working and consuming, are the economic engine of an economy generating wealth. A rising boat floats all tides.
