SOCIALISM FROM PAST TO FUTURE

If you are still unclear about socialism, what it is, the ideas behind it, why it’s good or bad; then here is another video from Professor Richard Wolff to help you out. Few people of our times, in my mind, break things down easier than the good professor.

This is by no means a video to make any of us an expert, but rather an excellent overview that clearly describes the ideas, history and mistakes of socialism in the 20th century. It should peak your curiosity to explore more if you feel capitalism is a failed system or if you just feel things are unfair in the modern world.

If you love capitalism, I suggest you listen as well. There may be things you weren’t aware of or maybe you’ve misunderstood what socialism actually is.

DOG EAT DOG WORLD

It really is a dog eat dog world out there!

Fucking end of November means we’re full onto the Xmas season and all the materialistic crap that gets thrown in our faces with it. Holiday seasons just suck overall. They suck the joy out of me, they try to suck the money from our wallets, the phony ass people acting nice for a few days suck.

No matter what they throw at ya, remember this picture speaks volumes about our modern world, which of course, sucks!

RICHARD D. WOLFF

One of my favorite guys to listen to when it comes breaking down what's broken. If you think capitalism is a winning game, take a couple hours and consider his words.

I have a deep seated hatred of Wall Street and capitalism in general. I grew up watching the wealthy slowly peel away the fabric of America, in fact, the world. Reagan and his crew were the bastards who made me understand how terrible the system was. Each president since has driven it home further and further to me. 

I'm no economy expert by any stretch of the imagination. But I have common sense and everything is heading in a really bad direction. I hope you take a listen. I don't care if you agree with me or not. I've listened to the Greenspan's and Geithner's and don't dig what's been pushed down my throat. I find extreme wealth morally reprehensible.

What says you?
