Anti-Wage-Slave, Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 597-599

Our upside down welfare state is "socialism for the rich, free enterprise for the poor." The great welfare scandal of the age concerns the dole we give rich people.
William O. Douglas,
former U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1969

We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.
Louis Brandeis,
US Supreme Court justice from 1916-1939

“The so-called `world of work’ has gradually invaded all areas of social and personal life. Today’s capitalism is totalitarian in nature, endeavoring to own all of humankind body and soul, its `free’ time as well as its labor. Every social relation, every private mood or personal habit must be mobilized and integrated into the pattern of international business competition - the olympic games of wage-slavery. Leisure, and even childhood itself, are against the unwritten law promulgated by the financial, industrial and political elites who ultimately author and enforce the unwritten as well as the written codes. The daily suicides, irrational shooting sprees and bizarre killings that are the supreme hallmark of life in `Crazy America’ today expose for all who can stand to read about it the non-stop wacko factory that this society has become.”
Joseph Jablonski


  • I like the black-and-white picture, it reminds me of a scene in the movie Ransom, in which Gary Sinise explains the plot of The Time Machine, with the underground Morlocks wreaking vengeance on the Eloi.
