    ★★★★★

    Capitalism declares winners and losers yet demands everyone to hold a religious-like fanaticism to its wonders, oftentimes by pointing out the trumped-up horrors of non-capitalistic countries. The loyal defense of capitalism from its winners - basically equating their feelings of the system to how they feel about god and patriotism - is of course not surprising.
