This author needs your "help" with some reviews

Today on Amazon they are giving a away the follow book:
Unregulated Capitalism: Unregulated Capitalism is Destroying Democracy and the Economy

I think this author needs some "good insight" from some DP's, check out his summary:

A democracy is portrayed as government by the majority that offers fairness and equal economic opportunity. However, Americans are now left with a democracy and economic system of, by, and for the country’s wealthy, elite, and large corporations. With an extreme income and wealth disparity between the “haves” and “have-nots,” what the country needs now more than ever is a true democracy with a fair and equitable economic system. With this fascinating new book, readers will finally understand why the solution to rampant capitalism is a revamped social capitalism approach that will lead every democratic nation toward a purer form of democracy. Unregulated Capitalism: Unregulated Capitalism is Destroying Democracy and the Economy is an eye-opening look at the need for democratic countries to replace unfettered capitalism with social capitalism. ..

I Suggest Focusing on the Falsehood of Democracy

The first sentence, "A democracy is portrayed as government by the majority that offers fairness and equal economic opportunity."

How can "fairness and equal" be in the same sentence as the ideology of democracy? The two concepts are incompatible. Democracy is majority rule.

As an example:

Let's say in the state of Montana with a population of about one million people a proposal is put forth on a ballot to forbid the growing and selling of hemp. 500,001 vote for the proposal, 499,999 vote against. Since in a democracy the majority rules approximately half the population would be denied economic opportunity.

How is that fair and equal? It is not.

The problem isn't "unregulated capitalism" but in fact government interference in the competitive nature of capitalism. When federal/state government devises statutes and regulations that favor one company/industry over its competition it distorts the free market. The politicians receive a reward for the legislation in the form of a financial "contribution" (bribe) to their reelection campaigns.

As I read the biography of the author, his principal career is that of a government bureaucrat. That in itself should be a clue that his publication is a cover for an agenda of promoting centralized socialism.
