Prince Charles ended his tour of the United States in Louisville, Kentucky yesterday where, the Independant reports, that during a speech at the Cathedral of the Assumption Prince Charles took a shot at capitalism by stating that it had “enormous shortcomings”:
“Prince Charles spoke of an “economic system that seems to have enormous shortcomings” at one of the final events of his four day royal tour of the United States.
“The future King gave a speech yesterday tackling the environmental and economic issues faces the world at the Cathedral of the Assumption in Louisville, Kentucky.
“…The Prince of Wales told the invited audience: “We are standing at a moment of substantial transition where we face the dual challenges of a world view and an economic system that seem to have enormous shortcomings, together with an environmental crisis – including that of climate change – which threatens to engulf us all.”
This isn’t the first time Prince Charles has voiced his distaste for the Free Market.
In 2014 he called for a fundamental transformation of global capitalism in order to fight Climate Change. (Video below)
As is the case with Al Gore, Prince Charles is just another example of a wealthy elitist preaching to the common man that their pursuit of happiness, and efforts to improve their quality of life, are shameful and not as important as the fictional fight against Global Warming.
Because in the end, Prince Charles and Al Gore have their wealth and comfort.
Why should you have yours?
