Happy New Year!

“I imagine you already know that I am much more socialistic in my economic theory than capitalistic. And yet I am not so opposed to capitalism that I have failed to see its relative merits. It started out with a noble and high motive, viz, to block the trade monopolies of nobles, but like most human systems it fell victim to the very thing it was revolting against. So today capitalism has outlived its usefulness. It has brought about a system that takes necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes.” — Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter to Coretta Scott, 1952

  3. This is an excellent example depicting how the ownership class of capitalists care far less about social issues, BUT: Keep your critical thinking, speaking and actions away from our holy status quo system that serves to enrich the rich (the deserving) and impoverish and oppress the poor.
