The Third Point of the Triangle

Reading of the annual anti-capitalist jamboree at the World Social Forum, the question struck me: Why, when we have the guys in Davos trying to reform capitalism and the Porto Alegre compassion-fascists chainsaw it, is there not a World Capitalist Forum, dedicated to celebrating and proselytising the free-market economic system as it exists?

One of the think-tanks should try this. Perhaps, unlike dirty hippies and the superannuated German electric company chairmen taking their mistresses to Switzerland for a dirty weekend, maybe the creating Atlases are too busy holding up the world to take time out.
