Capitalism kills creativity?

I liked this comment on Sir ken robinson’s Ted talk “Bring on the learning revolution!”

I think capitalism kills creativity, and it does it in three ways.

Firstly, the main aim of the ‘linear education system’ is to produce workers with measurable knowledge and skills, because that’s what employers want.

Secondly, most people need to give up their interests and passions in order to pay a ridiculously inflated property price and an outrageous mortgage by whatever means necessary.

Thirdly, when engaged day-in day-out for someone else’s profit, any existing passion is destroyed.

Don’t you think this makes sense ? 🙂

    I think if you replace ‘Capitalism’ with ‘Industrialism’ it makes much more sense, no?
