1 nil to the Capitalists!

Here’s an idea; I am a rich Tory. I make whatsits; my whatsits cost £10 to make; I can sell my whatsits for £11 and make a tidy profit. But no, I don’t do that. I’m a greedy bastard and suss what the market will stand- and it comes out at £15. So I sell my whatsits at £15 and make huge profits, none of which goes back to my workforce, many of whom cannot afford a whatsit because I have artificially increased the price- and, incidentally fuelled inflation. (My God! Are you telling me its employers that fuel inflation, not poor workers?)

So, capitalism = greedy bastards 1, workers =0.

Now I am a poor self employed worker; I make whatsits at a cost of £10; I sell them at £8 to those who cannot afford £10, and at £13 to those who can. I make a tidy profit, the poor can afford to buy, thus they can buy more whatsits and I have to make more, and employ more to make them; the rich do not miss the extra they pay- everybody’s happy. What’s wrong with this view of economics- unless you’re a rich bastard?

So, workers = 1, greedy bastards STILL = 1!

  1. Yeh ! Greedy bastards are all amongst us every where , at all times and sadly may always be so. What I believe however is that we need to consider some form of ranching ,selective branding & breeding within humanity ! This is in order to reduce the future reproduction of such a deformed animal species to purify and incarnate this insidious disease of greed among our species. After all they are only 1% of our species which some suspect are not really human but alien. However the reality on such a matter is not really clear until I see a reptilian creature appear amongst my own progeny.
    I realise that I may have not offered the complete alternative or maybe perfect solution todate. So if I may continue, I believe we should look at our method of Government i.e Parliament & the House of Lords. Need I go further in my Cromwellian beliefs, in that this Government does not & cannot serve the people whilst it has an Royal Establishment paedophile ring through it’s brain & nose.
    I humbly await your opinion and those of your peers, but more importantly those if the common people of the 99% to whom I serve & belong .

    • I have often tried to explain to people how the restriction socialism places on the individual are for the freedom of the people- generally those whose freedoms have been reduced or removed by the inability to pay in a capitalist society.

      It’s hard going, but occasionally some bright person will say ’I never thought of it like that’ and every name I have been called, every slur on my character is worth it to hear one person say they have seen the light.
