Capitalism; our friend or foe? Its glory shines brightly, but not everyone basks in its radiance.
The reality behind the veil; in other words the myth Capitalism perpetuates to ensure us ordinary folk are kept in place, and toe the line.
The more we want the less we get, but the harder we’ll try regardless; determined to be what Capitalism says we can be – successful and rich.
After all, the free market is where competition is encouraged; anyone can be anything so long as they work hard for it. ‘The opiate for the people’, yes it is, that and popular culture.
With everyone striving to have 3D televisions and the next new BMW, no one is going to challenge the system or rock the boat.
If we all buy in to the ‘dream’ we are less of a threat, subdued and controlled.
Greed, and self deception = capitalisms best friend.
