Fragile

Global, impersonal, uncaring, ruthless and divisive but...

Fragile

Global.

A machine that will not sway in its quest, our daily lives to control.

Capitalist society has become a monolithic empire, in

control of all of our thoughts.

A construct of enormous proportions, computed, controlled by

ones and by noughts.

Impersonal.

A machine that will not sway in its quest, our daily lives to control.

Capitalism, an alienated system of profit, of greed and of war, has but one single desire.

For profiteering and accumulation, the only things able to stoke the insatiable fire.

Uncaring.

A machine that will not sway in its quest, our daily lives to control.

“I am not a worker” he indignantly claimed, “I’m part of the management team.

I’m valued, respected and highly regarded, I am the cream of the cream.”

Ruthless

A machine that will not sway in its quest, our daily lives to control.

Capital is happy all the while it maintains that, “We are

all in this together”.

But it jettisons anyone who gets in the way when hitting economic stormy weather.

Divisive.

A machine that will not sway in its quest, our daily lives to control.

But…

Fragile.

Because it will only exist for as long as we allow it, our daily lives to control.

There exists a real alternative to this unfair economic

paradigm.

Overthrow existing order and rid ourselves of divisive ugly crime.
