Capitalism

This is written to provoke you. Not to violence, violence doesn’t work; but to anger. Anger fuels bursts of new thought. New thought fuels change, change gets rid of the garbage in our worlds that builds until we remove it.

As well, things like this, things that are true are more and more often buried or ignored. Hate it, hate me for printing it, but be provoked to change…

I’m not sure they teach it anymore, best to keep the masses ignorant, or give them the pretense of ignorance, because the truth is you can not outgrow it, or escape it, until you acknowledge it and challenge it, Dell…
