Oh, I know you’re not exaggerating. Multi-national corporations truly own the world. They are the masters and everyone else is the slaves. We serve corporations in every way. We work for whatever they deem appropriate, we vote for leaders that will continue their agendas, we sign slave-wage contracts because the only alternative is to starve, and we fight wars to serve their needs and do their dirty work. They control and exploit the world and the working man and woman has to suffer for it. It’s shameful. People need to wake up and realize that the system is built against them; that the propaganda of “freedom” is built upon a foundation of falsehoods. It’s a global capitalist dictatorship.
I’m a socialist because capitalism concentrates power and wealth within a small segment of society that controls the means of production and derives all that wealth through a system of exploitation. Capitalism creates a stratified society based on unequal social relations that fail to provide equal opportunities for every individual and doesn’t utilize available technology and resources in the interests of the general public. I believe that material wealth and capital generated by the economic labor of the world should be communally owned; the fruits of our common labor should be shared by all. It’s rational, logical, and moral. I believe that Marx was right in his philosophy that history has a goal, and I believe that goal is classlessness.
