But no, its better to be a good slave for the PTB! Who are the ptb? The kings and queens of all nations going back to antiquety along with the
bankers and the church. Marxism was always against these tyrants from day 1 but McCarthism in america killed the movement before it had a chance to
develop, thus spreading the disease called capitalism throughout the world.
Capitalism, is not a desease ... it is the only freedom we have.
Carl Marx, never meant the Soviet Union .... that was never his idea. Although I am not exactly familiar with McCarthism, but I do agree with you
that the current "problem" does come from the Kings and Queens of antiquity. But they DO NOT represent capitalism ... they represent oppression and
Capitalism, is the freedom of individuals to optain capital to make joint ventures. It does not mean, that Goldman Sachs owns the brooklyn bridge.
There are things, that must be under "common" ownership ... that is, owned by the people. While other things, can be owned by individuals ... but
things such as public transportation, public railways, postal deliveries, pipelines ... must be, and must always be ... owned by the people, because
they do not serve, an individual, but the people. The same applies to a house ... a mans house, does not serve the public ... it serves the
individual, therefore it must be in the ownership of that individual. While the right, to self determination, to education, etc., are human rights
and should be global.
Going about and stating Capitalism is bad, and Communism is good ... is just being the follower of ideals, and being blind to reality. These
"ideas" cannot be universal ... and should apply to all and everything. It is never a good thing, to be a part of "a whole". I am the individual
... the human right, is my individual right ... and my individual right, comes before the group. Because, eventually, every group is made of
individuals ... and you cannot put the need of the group, before the need of the individual ... because it means, that all the individuals in the
group are slave to a motive.
Capitalism, is the free flow of money and the freedom of individuals to provide for themselves ... stating that capitalism is bad, is the same as
stating the constitution is bad ... which eventually, is the same ideology, that those that are inside Wall Street, share.
