Neo-Feudalism/"Class-Colonialism";Capitalism - an instrument for social change

I would like to hear your thoughts on the idea, that Capitalism is merly an instrument to solidify a kind of world wide Neo-Feudalism with a new ruling class or, as it is called more often, "Elite", hiding behind institutions like countries and governments. Along these lines i have been thinking whether what we see all around the world is a form of ,as i would call it, "Class Colonialism". Moving the idea of colonialism into a new context. There are still territories, or as they would be called countries, but for the top class, these "bounderies" are merey suggestions that can be overcome easily. Not so for the rest of the population, the majority, which has to adhere to rules and controlls at said borders. The idea of exploitation still works in a world wide class context. As we have seen in the aftermath of the 2008 world wide crash banks have been basically exhonerated from any "wrong-doing" on a world wide scale by bailing them out through the tax dollars of the exploited lower classes and their future generations (the crazy thing here, i would like to point out, is the fact, that for instance US tax dollars went to bakns all over the globe, helping the "elites" across borders, suggesting that there is an actual world wide class at the top). Your thoughts? kind regards, Swen Gerards
