Capitalism DID NOT break. Capitalism DOES NOT break.

Capitalism has not broken, the market has not failed. Capitalism does not break, because it cannot.

Capitalism cannot fail, because it is not a philosophy or a construction, it is simply a systematization of reality.

Capitalism cannot break, because it is the fundamental mechanism by which things work. The universe would have to fundamentally change, for this fact to change.

Capitalism is a reflection of nature, and of human nature.

Capitalism can no more fail than gravity can fail. It can be temporarily resisted, it can be (and has been to a great degree) warped, but it cannot fail.
