Should Capitalism be Separated from Politics?

If God and State are forced to be seperate, should not Capitalism and Politics be seperated as well. Why should wealth alone, media speticles with pritty faces and charm be the determinning factor in Politics or the person most willing to pull the trigger.

Why should wealth alone, media speticles with pritty faces and charm be the determinning factor in Politics or the person most willing to pull the trigger. When will people be politically educated, fully conscious of the issues affecting their world. Civilians need to be educated in Law and Government if they are to be the deciding factor of who is to be condemd to prison or set upon the thrown to lead countries. Ignorence is bliss but not when making important decisions that will have lasting impacts on the future of our world. The Masses are usually ignorent or apathetic and so are the people they place into power. Without Good Virtues and civic duty placed at the forefront of our schooling perhaps nobody would go into politics if not for the temptation of wealth and power. Then again those best suited for leading are not always the ones who want the job.

Capitalism is free market alowing merchants to sell whatever they want. I believe Capitalism like anything should be limited and removed from politics.

Politicians should have real jobs, go to work for the gov for 4-8 years and return to their regular lives as should each of us take our turn in the driver seat and be educated to do so. We all need to do our part.
