Revolution in British: Billy Bragg

1 post / 0 new

Happy MLK Day! There is good in every person. Our ideas about strength and security must be changed to reflect reality and not jingoistic imperialist distortions. Normalizing war and militarizing foreign policy are perversions bringing only cynicism and mistrust.

"People are beginning to understand we must find a way to call the markets to responsibility, to bridle their worst excesses and ensure thatr those banks who attacked life are in the soup and not us. Self-regulation is a contradiction in itself. Turbo-capitalism drowns. The people begin to understand that unregulated markets are frauds, profit-driven frauds...

A society governed by the markets is simply not a democracy. The market is like a fire. Tame it, make it useful to you and it will give you warmth, light and heat for cooking. Give it free rein and it will destroy everything dear to you."

And for good reason, too.
