[...] And that notion that capital is the metric, that profit is the metric by which we're going to measure the health of our society is one of the fundamental mistakes of the last 30 years. I would date it in my country to about 1980 exactly, and it has triumphed. [...] But the idea that it's [capitalism] not going to be married to a social compact, that how you distribute the benefits of capitalism isn't going to include everyone in the society to a reasonable extent, that's astonishing to me." nicht teil haben an der Gesellschaft. // &! alternet.org/economy/5-ways-its-become-crime-be-poor-america-punishable-further-impoverishment &! &! bit.ly/1EVuyKz &! bit.ly/1bFWwfU "Perspektivlosigkeit, Wut und Paranoia"
