Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Capitalism, and particularly the ownership aspect, is very conductive to the tradition of hierarchal, aristocratic distribution of status and power. Formally, democracy politics offers egalitarian, participatory balances of power. But fully "wild" financial capitalism seems to introduce its hierarchy in very short time. In particular, it takes over the political aparatus to serve stingy needs. Plus, the evolutionary history supplies ready psychological roles both for alphas and the misserable.
