The longer I live, the more convinced I am that capitalism is a kind of madness. What other disease could convince a nation that after stealing a continent of raw materials from its original inhabitants, and then using slave labor to build a nation, would then claim that their wealth was a result of their own pioneer spirit? What other insanity would underpay workers and then lecture them on the virtues of hard work? What other madness would pilfer the goods of other nations, reducing some of them to sweat shop labor, and then see the poverty of those nations as proof of the superiority of their own?
