Capitalistic Fundamentalism

A response to Deepak Chopra's "pearls"
.
.
There is no difference between extreme capitalists and other fundamentalists. They are capitalistic fundamentalists: an opportunistic person who will do anything to make money.
.
While facts can be appreciated sentiments should also be respected. To expect everyone in the society to be able to think like the most aware, enlightened or mature is also fundamentalism. To expect everyone to think rationally is also fundamentalism.
.
.
Reality is much different from ideal situation. Being intolerant to reality is again a type of fundamentalism. So anyone who wants everything ideal is not any different.
