IN DEFENCE OF CAPITALISM

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on April 20, 2009

If we could control the weather, would we allow cyclones,  droughts?? Would we allow earthquakes or tsunamis if we could control them??

Would we??

We have these kind of extremes in our economy.  And we could control them. Why do we not do so??

Millions of people across the planet have lost their jobs and incomes, through no fault of their own.

But who is responsible?? And who pays the price??

Some people have died, more will die,  some will take their own lives, because of something they

did not cause. But we can control it.

And choose not to. Why??

WHY??

WHY??

Australia was established as a penal settlement by the British. In high school I remember reading

about transportation. A man with no money and no job who say steals  a loaf of bread just to feed

his family.

He is arrested, found guilty, and sentenced to transportation. But he had to feed his family. He

was  poor, and no work was to be had.

What would you do??

The rule of law–

Are the poor expected to die . . . obediently?

Greed and endless consumption is what now defines us–

Are the poor expected to die . . . happily?

What do you think the privileged would say to defend their privilege?

If I was such a man today, I would do more than steal a loaf of bread.
