The insanity that is capitalism

The Senate has just voted down attempts to allow "re-importation" of drugs from other countries like Canada. Is that insane? Yes, but not nearly as insane as the fact that "re-importation" is even an issue in the first place. Drugs made in the United States, shipped to another country, and then shipped back to the United States.

Is there any wonder the planet is being destroyed when such things can occur, all as a result of capitalism - the production of goods for profit rather than for use?

Update: And while I'm on the subject, is there anything more insane than being offered "medical advice" from television commercials paid for by drug manufacturers?
