I should say that when people talk about capitalism it’s a bit of a joke. There’s no such thing. No country, no business class, has ever been willing to subject itself to the free market, free market discipline. Free markets are for others. Like, the Third World is the Third World because they had free markets rammed down their throat.

Meanwhile, the enlightened states, England, the United States, others, resorted to massive state intervention to protect private power, and still do. That’s right up to the present. I mean, the Reagan administration for example was the most protectionist in post-war American history. Virtually the entire dynamic economy in the United States is based crucially on state initiative and intervention: computers, the internet, telecommunication, automation, pharmaceutical, you just name it. Run through it, and you find massive ripoffs of the public, meaning, a system in which under one guise or another the public pays the costs and takes the risks, and profit is privatized.

That’s very remote from a free market. Free market is like what India had to suffer for a couple hundred years, and most of the rest of the Third World.

International Roma Day // April 8, 2013

International Roma Day is an opportunity to celebrate Romani culture but also to highlight the persecution and discrimination that Roma people face in all areas of life.

I am late on this but this is so important and doesn’t get enough coverage by media. I still see and hear many sentiments against Roma around me, ”they’re dirty”, ”they’re spongers” etc. and it drives me nuts. Whenever we see humans in need, we should help and not ask whether they’re driven by good or bad intentions.

Opaaaaaaaaaaaa! Still alive, people! *echoes*

Now to manage my following list because apparently a certain history blog changed itself to a ‘loveydoveyglitterxoxokissingcoupleshere’ blog in my exile, obviously photos of Ancient Greek ruins weren’t enough…. μαλάκας/wankers! <_<
