This very second has vanished forever, lost in the anonymous mass of the irrevocable. It will never return. I suffer from this, and I do not. Everything is unique—and insignificant.
Emil Cioran, The Trouble With Being Born (via fotelja)
…the swifter capitalistic accumulation, the more miserable are the dwellings of the working-people. “Improvements” of towns, accompanying the increase of wealth, by the demolition of badly built quarters, the erection of palaces for banks, warehouses, etc., the widening of streets for business traffic, for the carriages of luxury, and for the introduction of tramways, etc., drive away the poor into even worse and more crowded hiding places.
Karl Marx - Capital Vol 1 Ch.25 1867 (via dailymarx)

Above all, capitalism wastes human life. The U.S. spends billions to warehouse 2 million people—many of them young Black and Latino men—in overcrowded prisons. It provides sub-par education to millions of poor students, sending a message that their lives will amount to nothing.

Are people homeless in America because there’s a shortage of homes? And if that’s the case, is there a shortage of homes because we don’t have the concrete, the wood and the steel to build them?

The truth is that under capitalism, there’s no incentive to build low-cost housing for the homeless—because it isn’t profitable to do so.

The same goes for the more than 800 million people in the world who go hungry. It isn’t profitable to feed them. So food is stockpiled or destroyed rather than distributed to them.

    why did you ruin the economy?

The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself.

Bryan Stevenson on The Daily Show.

tl;dr our country pretends that it doesn’t have a huge problem when it comes to acknowledging it’s horrors and its systematic racism

Plantations here are basically fun themepark rides that show all the “good” of slavery. Imagine the Holocaust museum spun into a fun ride about pulling Germany out of economic depression. That’s the US handling of its history.
