The Necessary (R)evolution Will Not Be Televised

  Capitalism is oppression. It’s oppression delivered through racism, patriarchy, intolerance of “others”, religious zealotry and other tools of dividing us – basically the spreading of hate, greed and fear. It’s neatly wrapped and sprinkled with the sugar (and spice and everything nice) of patriotism, socially acceptable responsibility (working “hard”) and more ignorance & greed, […]
