Why we have economic crises, aside from all the baloney we are fed

In the capitalist system, which is the system that rules over the entire world, no country is excluded, each economic crisis is a crisis of Capital. Crises are congenital to the process of accumulation. Each crisis is a crisis of the process of valorization of capital, which can also be said that crises are when those who make profits upon paying a salary are not able to draw enough profit in comparison with the money they invest. This happens even though salaries are meager. All crises are thus ingrained into the same laws that regulate the system of capitalist accumulation. Continue reading

Tester I’ll have in pouch when thou shalt lack

I have disturbed the Bard to title this post, I’m sorry Bill, but it looked fitting to me. Here they go some who are actually making merry, although not the Merry Wives of Windsor.
Panic keeps spreading across many businesses in Europe from the Russian veto, their wheeling and dealing is getting screwed, and so they are cadging and pushing politics, “Hey, we’d better do something before it’s too late”, and yet, it is too late, or not? Continue reading

Duhbour Akew, a very intricate story

Parental Advisory. Explicit content, unsuitable for neo-stance children!!

Is this the story of Johnny Rotten?

Oh, hell, no, of course not! That was Neil Young, we were enjoying some good old songs, and that was just Neil Percival Kenneth Robert Ragland Young, or Don Grungio if you prefer, singing one of his hits, “Hey Hey My My”, strumming with his Gibson Les Paul “Old Black” guitar.

No, this is the story of Al Duhbour Akew, a very intricate and controversial story, starting from his own name. Continue reading

An actual voice from the Ukraine

Among the many myths with which the ruling classes brainwash the dominated, there is one that won’t die, that of the wars of liberation. There are no liberation wars, all wars are made to hoard wealth and expand hegemony in order to control resources, territories, and people, and thus ensure profits for business. All of our societies are built upon the legal robbery of social wealth produced by the workers, as a consequence, the only liberation I see is the emancipation of all Mankind by means of the world proletarian revolution. All the other bourgeois wars, although embellished with long words and high principles, are not my fights. I don’t take part in the settling of scores between brigands, even when those wars are called peace keeping operations, whether with or without the blessing by the United Nations, whose intentions are different from a bunch of criminals only because they are legally ratified. And what the bourgeois law is if not legalization of piracy? Continue reading

The Flyer

I am sitting in my armchair, sipping a frappe I made myself through a yellow straw. Meantime, I am cruising through the world wide web with my tablet, and boy, I feel like a tycoon, except for having worked 10 hours at the factory, living in a 430 square foot hovel with rickety furniture, my fridge almost empty, two cigarettes left, a heap of bills to pay, suffering from cold in the winter and gasping for air in the summer, and, no need to say, not enough money for going on vacation. Yet, all in all, how could I afford to spend some time on vacations, those taskmasters are always there to remind one that business and the lives of the laborers run over parallel lines, odds are they will never meet. You can hear them say, «Come, on, come on, output at the factory is increasing! Thanks to y’all!! We have always said that you the workers are our most precious capital» Continue reading

What I think has to be done to get out of this ongoing crisis.

Saturday morning I was invited by some friends to breakfast, they just wanted to discuss some points from Ziggurat, when, in the middle of our talk, the fatal question popped up, «Hey Bob, what do you think has to be done to solve this crisis?»
And really, my hand rushed to my belly, so why? Because I wanted to take a bow and split my sides laughing, or because I got a stabbing pain in the stomach? It’s up to you, either one is right. Continue reading

Russia and China on a shopping spree.

Almost ten days ago or so, I was discussing with my close friend Bubs, who live in Fortaleza (Brazil) about a new bank, called the New Development Bank, that the BRICS, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa inaugurated in Fortaleza on July 15th 2014, a financial giant of 100 billion dollars, which they previously agreed during their fifth meeting held in Durban on March 27th 2013.

Ziggurat, excerpt from chapter 3

I am sitting on a rock before a splendid sea, it is early in the morning and I can still see the pale figure of the moon, it looks as if painted by a child, a flat disk stuck over the sky. I have a strange thought, «I wonder what the sea feels like when the moon swells the tide, it pulls its skin and then releases it, making it breathe so that it may blow life all around» Continue reading
