Occupy The World! To the Barricades Comrades?

from StrategicCulture

We will first have to dispel the ‘bad apple’ theory as the cause of the current crisis. That it’s just a question of regulating capitalism, smoothing out the rough edges, eliminating the extremes and above all, restoring ‘competition’, so-called real capitalism.

But this could only be done by breaking up the giant corporations and abolishing the financial sector in its entirety as it currently exists. Is it likely that advocates of ‘real’ capitalism aka Max Keisser could undertake such a mission? The way I understand it, a ‘real’ capitalist economy would consist only of small competing private businesses, cooperatives, public utilities and the self-employed, and one assumes massive state intervention in order to make it all happen.
