An impressive article. I liked this bit

But indifference to the safety and wellbeing of working class people, and conspiracy and scapegoating are inseparably linked with capital, particularly in this advanced phase of its decadence. All of them are trying their best to hide the truth from the working class people that the world capitalist system today is the real killer. It is everyday killing thousands of people in all parts of the world through poverty, misery, starvation, famine, unemployment, homelessness, exposure to extreme vagaries of weather conditions, intensifying pollution of air, water, environment, disease, pestilence, suicides, drug addictions, drunkenness, terrorism and war. It is also killing hundreds and thousands of people through frequently occurring apparently natural disasters in the root of which is in reality the intensifying greed and competition for more profit of all fractions of international capital.

Capitalism has always been a killer. Even in it's heyday, in it's "triumphant" ascendancy, it crippled and killed both adults and children all over North Western Europe, and made the lives of those who survived its exploitation a total misery. Now it does this all over the world. It's time to organize ourselves and get rid of it forever.
