…Whiteness that was being defended this week? It is married to fundamentalist capitalism. This week, billionaires are making hysterically out-of-touch defenses of it in Davos, Switzerland, where the ultra-rich gathered to explain to the rest of us why allowing them to continue to hoard their wealth like dragons inures to our benefit. These stories are connected, because that sneering White entitlement we saw from the Covington Cath…
Ah yes. Bill Gates’ answer for people hating capitalism was try communism to see how we like that.
America’s best, brightest, richest said that. He doesn’t give a shit that we’re hurting, his answer is to lash out with threats. I never liked him (I follow his money trails). He made his money off of us, then gave us the middle finger. We all need to wake up and stop drinking the caustic capitalism koolaid. They make stuff for us to buy, no most of us are addicts. We don’t even know how to get off the ferris wheel.
If we stop consuming (i.e. buy used everything except basic essentials), they’d start losing money. We don’t need to continue to buy bags, every new Apple product that comes out. Fuck fashion, we don’t need Red Bottoms, Balenciagas Boots, or Michael Kors purses. We buy bullshit! We don’t need a loan for a house, we just need a place to live to keep the elements from killing us. Rent to keep banks from over charging us. We have credit cards. We have access to money we don’t have, just pay as you go. If you don’t have the money, don’t buy it. Buy an older car and pay cash for it, repair it when it needs to be repaired. If it’’s man made, it’s going to break. It doesn’t matter if the car is a month old or 20 years old. It will run if you take care of it.
We need to use common sense and stop allowing capitalism to make them rich and make us slaves. It’s time to deprogram our minds and see the evil of capitalism and democracy.
