Hats off to the person in the following cartoon who had to sing their way through this list of the nations of the world (with the exception of Israel which is a colonial state and NOT a nation).
It does give us a blatant truth in that Capitalism has, and will, always fail. It operates in a boom and bust cycle, with the ordinary citizens picking up the tab for the failures of the Surplass, who rarely seem to take the hit but do get ever richer.
Ireland of today is a prime example of the inequality and injustice of Capitalism. It is also a good place to see how consumerism not only creates more debt for struggling people, but also serves to distract from the reality that is this; regular people are getting injustice rammed up their collective ass, whether they realize it or not.
