In capitalist America, protesters serve more jail time than the murderers they are protesting
“The really strange thing about today is that most of the people who leap to capitalism’s defense fastest and most furiously…aren’t capitalists. And they never will be. They can’t be. Just 10% of America owns stocks, and even less owns bonds. Even less — maybe 1%, if that — make enough money from capital to call it their main income. And their incomes are shrinking, at a record pace. So the Rick’s dads of the world have never made enough money from capital income to live off it, and that’s why they’ll never really retire. They don’t send their kids to school with capital gains. They don’t pay for skyrocketing healthcare bills by liquidating trust funds. They’re just average wage-earning schmoes, like the rest of us. And yet despite the fact that they’re not capitalists and never will be, they’re also exactly the ones who defend capitalism most.”
Why Are the Fiercest Defenders of Capitalism Those Who’ll Never Be Capitalists?
The right ought to be confused. Tracking cohesion in a web of propagandist lies can be difficult. The battle of ideas is already won. All that’s left is to implement these ideas at home.
As social democracy gains popularity, the right can’t seem to find an honest, consistent argument for why Americans can’t have nice (Danish) things.
Venezuela is under attack by the international capitalist order. They have been for over a decade, yet they still stand strong. Just like Cuba before it, the West has been trying to take them down unsuccessfully by starving the population.
