The Mental Disease of Late-Stage Capitalism
Joe Brewer

I believe we’re in what Marx referred to as the “state monopoly” stage of capitalism; in its final death throes. Having been a Marxist for nearly 50 years, shame is not how I’d describe my feelings, though I have at times wondered if I shouldn’t feel it sometimes due to my relative good fortune and privilege.

Good post and really a positive message. Perhaps those who are feeling shame will transform it into resolve. Cold, dispassionate resolve. As you’ve pointed out, we do outnumber them.
