karl marx got it right

in every one of those little stucco boxes there's some poor bastard who's NEVER free except when he's fast asleep and dreaming that he's got the boss down the bottom of a well and is bunging lumps of coal at him. -- George Orwell

The Business Insider, hardly a mouthpiece for the Communist Party has "15 Mind-Blowing Facts About Wealth And Inequality In America" and they really are mind blowing. I honestly don't see how someone can look at these statistics and justify or defend the existence of capitalist class society. I dont want to go into a rant about it because other, far more intelligent people have written plenty about class and the injustices of the capitalist system. I just want to point out that basically, these 15 facts that the Business Insider put together are the reason i am an anti-capitalist.

  1. What funny is the class system and injustice is worse under communist and socialist governments.
    Read some history. Particularly of 20th Century Russia, and East Germany, and contemporary Venezuela, and DPRK.

    Also, the result of MOST of that inequality comes down to poor life choices by most people. As long as you get a good education and work (and not in something useless like gender studies or sociology), you will be fine in this country.

    I have heard of an American who immigrated to the DPRK, I suggest you do the same if capitalism is such a problem for you and need the state to take care of you.
