Free flight or free fall?

The other day I came across a powerful metaphor. Capitalism is like an experimental aircraft launched from a very tall cliff. We assumed our model was aerodynamic and our flight controlled only because the ground was so far distant. We couldn’t see we were actually in free fall. Now the ground is rising rapidly and the truth is self-evident. It never was sustainable. It never did fly.
