I do understand Feudalism. In the "civilized" world people wouldn't allow humans to be executed or incarcerated for not working. However, they have no problems generally if people are left to starve aside from talking about how terrible it is. Most don't have the fortitude to actually do things about it, or are selfish, or don't have the resources. Either way. Modern social pressures and morality don't allow the dire consequences you mentioned. But there are still consequences. I'm not arguing that our entire system is feudal. I'm making the argument that our brand of capitalism in the US has lead to defacto corporate feudalism and imperialism. We are not in disagreement about people being inherently selfish. Because they are inherently selfish, it is my personal opinion, that people and businesses should be made to contribute back into the system. It is better for the future of people. Especially because of the myth of continuous economic growth in the face of finite resources. This also brings up the issue that masses of wealth being stagnant in capitalism creates. If money isn't moving around, it isn't serving its purpose. It can't create growth with its purchasing power reinvigorating the economy, and it can't be taxed forcing local governments to find other ways of funding themselves, and starving necessary programs like education.
