Some mornings I wake up and it’s just staring at me in the face. Capitalism is at the core of nearly every problem we’re confronting today—from environmental disaster to our shitty healthcare to the NRA’s grip on Congress to the fact that teachers get paid so much less than those Wall Street assholes who robbed the American public and then got bonuses. The very foundation of our economy was built upon the “free labor” of people of color/women of all races. Yes, you can chalk these problems up to greed, ignorance, xenophobia. But all that gets folded into end-stage capitalism in one way or another.
