Architects of Decadence

He had no other option
But to do what was necessary
In order that he did not end up one of the many at the mercy of the capitalists’ propensity for manipulation

When they fix the rate of labour low
While circling the bounds of ethical law
To reap almost all the benefit from production
Laying claim to the energies of everyone involved
And in exchange providing minimum compensation
To the desperate masses who are often in denial

When they hoard the bulk of the bounty offshore like the Ricardo Master Fund
Low balling…

When the architects of decadence are in action

    Even when I criticize the actions of others, I never forget what we have in common. Desire for advantage being one of those elements.
