25And one day an authority on the law stood up to put Jesus to the test. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to receive eternal life?”26What is written in the Law?” Jesus replied. “How do you understand it?” 27He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love him with all your strength and with all your mind.’(Deuteronomy 6:5) And, ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ ”
28“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do that, and you will live." - Luke 10:25-28
Treat others like you want to be treated. Boil down desired treatment, let the bullshit steam off. You want to be loved. Love is the heart of the Golden rule. Be the change you want to see in the world. Be Love to Be Loved. Period. The End.
Capitalism violates the golden rule because it is a system that doesn't reward golden rule behavior. For example, guy A and guy B a seed for an apple tree. They clone it and have identical orchards, identical products.
Guy A - ascribing to the Golden rule sells his apples in such a manner as profits are sufficient to live. Let's say that turns out to be $1 per apple.
Guy B does the same, at first. Both believe $1 per apple is a fair compensation of their labor - the true value of the apple.
Then it simultaneously occurs to both that with 'good salesmanship' (deception) could allow them to sell their apples for $40 each.
Guy A cannot sell his apples for $40 each - Love won't allow it. He is capable of imagining himself being his own customer and also carries the knowledge that $1 per apple is fair. He refuses to cause the feeling resulting from deceit in others because he feels unpleasant when he is deceived.
Guy B on the other hand is incapable of imagining himself in the shoes of his customer - or he refuses to, focusing on the fact that he is NOT the customer and imaging such would be an irrelevant waste of time.
With Capitalism, Guy B gets rich. Rich enough to hire people to burn down Guy A's orchard.
Some would say that no one would buy Guy B's apples at $40 per apple. I would say you don't know people very well. Some would say that overtime, Guy B's business would fail as with $1 apples on the market Guy B will have severe too much supply and not enough demand for his apples (that's why he burns Guy A's orchard, incidentally).
That's not how it plays out in reality though. By the time the general populace realizes $40 is a ridiculous price for apples. Guy B has made his fortune. (One day Guy B goes on to buy the government in order to control education, because stupid people are more likely to buy $40 apples).
