Many posters on this forum--possibly fifty-cent propagandists--have argued that one flaw of American capitalism is lobbying. They say that lobbying causes the government to cater to businesses, not people, and cite problems of lobbying like absestos. They ignore, however, that their "perfect" "socialist" state also contains many big businesses, and is in many ways capitalist. Their state's alternative to lobbying is bribery, which causes the same, if not more problems. One of the problems of bribery but not lobbying is that bribery takes behind closed doors while lobbying can be discovered if you do some digging. Thus, with bribery, people are less informed about conflicts of interests than with lobbying.
