capitalism!!!!

I love this city!

Neoliberalism sees competition as the defining characteristic of human relations. It redefines citizens as consumers, whose democratic choices are best exercised by buying and selling, a process that rewards merit and punishes inefficiency. It maintains that “the market” delivers benefits that could never be achieved by planning.
Economically speaking, capitalism becomes oppressive through the phenomenon of accumulation. It is oppressive through being what it is, it accumulates in order to increase what it is, to exploit it all the more, and accordingly to accumulate still more. At that moment accumulation would be necessary only to a very small extent in order to guarantee social benefits. But the revolution, in its turn, becomes industrialized and realizes that, when accumulation is an attribute of technology itself, and not of capitalism, the machine finally conjures up the machine. Every form of collectivity, fighting for survival, is forced to accumulate instead of distributing its revenues. It accumulates in order to increase in size and increase in power. Whether bourgeois or socialist, it postpones justice for a later date, in the interests of power alone…It arms and rearms because others are arming and rearming. It does not stop accumulating and will never cease to do so until the day when perhaps it will reign alone on earth…Such is the economic law governing a world that lives by the cult of production.
—  Albert Camus, The Rebel

anonymous asked:

Who's cuter: Willy or Latts?

B R U H. I thank you for asking this but also feel bad for you for asking this because I am about to do The Most™.

Latts is cuter. Willy (in all honesty) is more physically attractive, but there’s something about Latts. He’s so Good and Lovely while also being a Thirst Trap, and Tom just seems more like the Hot Douche™

M. Thiers, at a private session of the commission on primary education of 1849, said: “I wish to make the influence of the clergy all powerful because I count upon it to propagate that good philosophy which teaches man that he is here below to suffer, and not that other philosophy which on the contrary bids man to enjoy.” M. Thiers was stating the ethics of the capitalist class, whose fierce egoism and narrow intelligence he incarnated.

The Bourgeoisie, when it was struggling against the nobility sustained by the clergy, hoisted the flag of free thought and atheism; but once triumphant, it changed its tone and manner and today it uses religion to support its economic and political supremacy. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, it had joyfully taken up the pagan tradition and glorified the flesh and its passions, reproved by Christianity; in our days, gorged with goods and with pleasures, it denies the teachings of its thinkers like Rabelais and Diderot, and preaches abstinence to the wageworkers. Capitalist ethics, a pitiful parody on Christian ethics, strikes with its anathema the flesh of the laborer; its ideal is to reduce the producer to the smallest number of needs, to suppress his joys and his passions and to condemn him to play the part of a machine turning out work without respite and without thanks.

Caps practice 1/18/17 - Autographs and hellos with Ovi (no, he didn’t sign), Beags, Willy and Andre. Apparently after I left Carly and Holtby came out.

Everyone was dressed foooine today. A bunch of their dads were there for the caps dads trip, too.

Highlights:

1) Beags chirping @notmissmarple after she complimented his play. “What, I didn’t play well last year?”

2) Me telling Andre to give me his best shampoo-model smile. Got a little laugh out of him.

ETA: Oh yeah, Chorney came out too. :D
