We are tolerant. We are multiracial. We the People, run the country. We act for the sake of our common good. We operate in the name of law, established by the People and administered in the name of the People. We consider all citizens equal before the law. We believe all men were created equal.
Okay, we could keep on enumerating many others of these resonant principles, and some may say, “Huh, very high principles, very human, very respectful of the other people’s rights”. So very sorry, I call this a bunch of bullshit. Continue reading
Damn! It’s only money!!
Crypto-currencies are taking over, whatever the conventional thinkers and mainstream economists may say. Those who oppose crypto-currencies are—although by different positions and viewpoints—fans and supporters of State sovereignty, preoccupied by the decline of traditional institutions. As you know, even those who call themselves libertarians can’t take a single step without the government protecting their interests. Nonetheless, crypto-money may even collapse in a day or two, but this is not just what I mean to say here. Continue reading
Yesterday I watched the movie Killing them softly by Andrew Dominik. It’s a very violent film telling of criminals who steal money from a mafia protected card game. Jack Cogan (Brad Pitt), a professional killer who likes to kill his victims “softly”, is called in to re-establish order. How dare anyone rob the mob and get away with it? Continue reading
Crypto-currencies are a revolution, and, they are a bourgeois revolution!
It’s not the revolution those like us expect, the working class revolution that will free humankind from capitalist slavery. Bitcoin and all its other crypto-brothers and sisters are born within the bourgeoisie and are completely functional in the system. On the other hand, we have never witnessed a more revolutionary system than capitalism in our history. Continue reading
Let’s look back again at some fast rules of capitalism, without which it could not exist. I have stressed this out in other posts, but this will make a fixed a point and useful for the next articles I am ready to publish.
The [bourgeois] capitalist society is based upon salaried labor, which means the exploitation of those who are forced to live by selling their labor to the capitalists, which means the abuse and mistreatment of those who are constrained to sell their person, because once a worker has nothing else to make a living except to sell out their ability, they are selling their entire person to the capitalist, good, bad, or indifferent!!

Here’s a list of my good intentions for the coming new year.
I solemnly refuse: Continue reading
Last Saturday, December 14th 2013, in Alcalá de Guadaíra, Seville, Spain, a Father, a Mother, and their daughter of 14, died from eating bad fish. They were a poor family, Enrique was a plumber who lost his job 2 years ago, he struggled to make ends meet rummaging in the garbage to find some plastics, metals and cardboard to sell. They were assisted from time to time by some charity institutions and sometimes given food (past the expiration date) by producers. Last Saturday the fish was way too past it’s expiration, even for a poor family. Continue reading
In the last few days, some friends asked me why I don’t want to climb into the car of the left wing.
Well, easier said than done!
I recognize in the European left, and also in the American left, a particular tension and worry to rule so as to save capitalism by the savage attacks from the neoliberal followers.
Dear friends, I don’t want to save capitalism, I want to see it knocked down and out for good!! Continue reading
I’m sick to death, that’s an expression I must have heard somewhere, and that’s a feeling I get at any given time when I hear the choir of progressive’s singing praises for the real economy and debasing finance. Continue reading
I have tried for so long to be politically correct, an expression so dear to so many today, but one that I reject, and send back to the sender with a sonorous “Not Faithfully Yours!”
I became convinced that if I had been soft and “polite”—it has nothing to do with good manners—I wouldn’t hurt some people’s feeling. I was very wrong!! It is not for hurting people’s feelings; it is for being true to myself. Continue reading
