BANG, BANG, BUST, BUST !
While the media and the public are focusing on gun and knife killings and whether they should buy the new Amy Winehouse album; because she’s a junkie, there is a lot of other shit going down that ’aint getting talked about. The economy for one is looking less healthy, stock markets are fluctuating with unease. Credit and house prices will be effected, as a society we are up to our eyes in ’hock’, how much more can the economy take ? Still there’s a way out for people; Gambling. I now hear that it’s gonna be alright for gambling establishments to advertise on telly, thanks to the new government gambling laws. For fucks sake, like we really need to have more problems created for society. Surely part of this mess is down to lack of self control by the individual. The must have, pay latter culture and take no responsibility for actions in spending and raising families. As a society we are becoming not only morally bankrupt but we are heading towards financially bankruptcy. How do we solve the problem? Well the only way is to look at what has caused the problem. It’s time to accept that capitalism sucks. It may bring wealth to some, but it brings misery to many more. Without wanting to go all Karl Marx on yer, every social problem can be put down and traced back to capitalism. From the murder of Rhys Jones to Amy Winehouse via gang culture and the collapse of the family unit, you name it……. It’s cause and effect., think about it. So then, the solution must lie in the rejection of capitalism. I can’t see any political party doing that, so it’s down to the individual to wake up or be woken up and smell the roses, rather than all the shit, we read about in the papers.
