"And STILL the public will vote for them - just like Turkeys voting for Christmas!
Surely it is time for a new system based not on profit and money and competition (which fails even those who work hard and try to be entrepreneurial)!
Our planet cannot sustain the growth necessary for Capitalism, and that capitalism has failed cannot be argued by anyone but the least intellectually capable because one look at the unfaltering misery of the World despite all the technological advances, medical advances, etc., would tell anyone of any intellect and humanity that it has failed.
It has failed the vast majority of the UK public, the European public, and those in American: but it has ripped the minerals and resources from many a 3rd World Country during that time whilst leaving the peoples of those countries to die of hunger and easily curable disease, and to lack education and improvement in their standards of living SIMPLY because it is not profitable to help them!
Truly: money (or the pursuit of vast, un-spendable stocks of it to bolster ones ego and power) is the root of all evil!"
Comment I heard this on the news today. I can't even believe my ears when these things are announced in the news without any hesitation or outrage? As if they give you the weather update! Where is the debate, discussions, etc...that is supposedly at the heart of any democracy and every voter's basic right? I recently heard about all those abandoned fracking sites in the States. It was said that all those companies got the funding and grants, and financial support to set up their destructive crap and once they received their pay (with not much to show for it. ie. shale gas) they all buggered off, leaving the locals with all that industrial shit on their doorstep. It is now the tax payer (in the US) who'll have to pick up the cost for cleaning up this mess..
