    The 68-year-old Walesa said the global economic crisis has made people aware that "we need to change, reform the capitalist system" because we need "more justice, more people's interests, and less money for money's sake."

    "We cannot accept a situation when capitalism is making huge money and then does not know what to do with it," Walesa told the AP. "It should invest in new jobs."

    "People are most important," he said.

    The legendary freedom leader said employees, employers and representatives of state and local governments should get together to work out solutions that would best serve the people and the societies.

    "For now, capitalism is working to produce more money but does not see the people," Walesa said. "This problem is getting worse across the world."

    He actually never claimed to be anything else, although I think democratic socialist would be more accurate. I'll just be curious to see how the right wing noise machine handles such a visit.
