"They cheated American families, crashed the economy, got bailed out, and now the biggest banks are even bigger than they were when they got too big to fail in 2008! … A kid gets caught with a few ounces of pot and goes to jail, but a big bank launders drug money and no one gets arrested. The game is rigged!"

If you do not wish to be lumped in with the men who stalk us, harass us, belittle us, abuse us, objectify us, dehumanise us, then take your complaints to the men who ARE like that. Take it to them. To those men we live in fear of, the men who have left us scarred, the men who sully the word ‘men’ so much you feel it necessary to distance yourself from them so strongly.
Take your complaints to them, not to those who are speaking of having been menaced by them."

Large corporations would not succeed without subsidies. The dependence upon public money is institutional.
Think about the massive government support for banks and corporations before you’re led to scapegoat poor people by the media they own.

a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.
