Educational campaigns about how terrible these are may be the only way to defeat them, as Texas and others show how impotent government is to help. Then again, maybe something on the Federal level could get done... haha just kidding.

There aren't really very effective educational programs for any of those things though, at least not uniformly.

Modern capitalism? Unlike nice old timey capitalism that caused the great depression, child labor, sweat shops, etc?
What's 'not modern' capitalism?
is the video description meant as "capitalism was good back in the day", or are old and new capitalisms terrible but in different ways?
I don't know what that means.
and I still want to know what the hell 'old' capitalism is.

How do people do this?
Seriously, how do the assholes who do this sort of thing live every moment of every day knowing what they do to people?
How can they take money from people with real jobs doing real things like scrubbing floors or flipping burgers and feel they are superior to those people?
Is it just total lack of conscience or empathy? Is this really a serious mental disorder we should be trying to cure?
Layers of separation.
They only see, and care about, the money they make.
"Nobody is forcing them to take out a loan, and hey, it is an essential service for some. And if it is so essential, doesn't that make me a hero?"

that's still one of the layer dregs. they interact with the unwashed filth at some level, requiring self-delusion like the above.
Every time we explore this topic, it seems to come down to a couple things.
1) Some of these people have an unhealthy obsession with obtaining wealth. Sometimes its a good old fashioned hoarding problem. Sometimes its their lunatic competitive drive to own/make more than the person above them, even if we're talking salaries in the millions of dollars.
2) The people who own and run these things, and most large companies, are genuinely psychotic. They got where they are because they lack empathy. Supposedly, studies exist that prove this. POETV has at least one documentary on the subject in its archives. I mean, I can't imagine someone charging over 50% for a loan having the ability to feel guilt for the screwing they are giving, let alone 100%...200%...500%.
3) We allow these organizations to get away with a lot of bullshit. Allowing a corporation to be seen and have the same rights as an individual is just the tip of the shitburg. Having an industry's paid goons occupy a government committee that regulates said industry seems so common place now days, that I...I'm just too angry to finish this sentence. It's just fucking common, okay?
sosage you're missing a large segment of them.
They didn't get to where they are by backstabbing, cheating, being terrible, or whatever. They were just born into money.
And there's nothing in the world that produces sheltered retards better than extreme wealth (lead paint isn't even close).
