    Yes this is why he entitled his most famous study on political economy Monarchy instead of Capital

    I've no idea what you're ranting about. But I'm sorry if you see people that way and I hope you change your attitude.

    You don't understand. Capitalism was completely different in his time. There were no human, civil, labor or environmental rights. There was no democracy. No unions. No recourse for workers whatsoever, and no protections.

    The world has changed in ways that he did not anticipate. To take his words in a modern context is tomfoolery.

    I'm sorry you do not have the insight to see that people are treated no better than an ass in that they work very hard all day, then are given some dry grass to eat, and if they are lucky some sex, after being kicked in the face by a female ass. One day you will have compassion for people who are suffering under a brutal system of repression. Right now you sympathies lie with those who profit greatly from such exploitation and who leverage the ponzi scheme of fractional reserve banking. Yeah, that finance crowd is a rather interesting bunch.

    You should get a different job.

    I have no idea if he was right or not about capitalism. He was sure as hell wrong about Marxism, however.

    No doubt. They finance the bombing and destruction of innocent people so that they can make more money. They are at the root of the problems in the Middle East and elsewhere.

    Well, if my job was like what you described, I'd get a different one. I've never been at a workplace anywhere near anything like that. Are you sure the company you work for is legal?
