      I saw this in video form with tonight’s Movement for a People’s Party… It was nicely executed in person on the livestream, as are many of the live updates for MPP…

      Once upon a time Mr. Capital took his son out for a walk…

      • Look son, poor people, there.

      • They look just like you and me, dad.

      • Well, son, no, they are not like us, they don’t own stock, but they are still very useful for the economy.

      • In what way are they useful, dad?

      • Well, son, because they are poor, we can hire them for miserly wages, and they will produce for companies in which we own stock!

      • Dad, but if they are not paid enough, won’t they go hungry?

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      Hi mmm,

      Yep, that is the lie humanity has swallowed for centuries.  We are nothing more than chattel to be exploited until exhaustion and death.  Our only purpose is to be milked for the profits demanded by capitalism and the wealth that flows in only one direction – straight to the Oligarchs, Corporations and Banks.  It only end when the America people decide to constitute  a new government free from economic tyranny and immiseration.
