What Makes Polly Tick?

“Let’s not make this political!” is the best way to ensure that the discussion will remain almost exclusively political.

Polly want a cracker…?

Let’s face it. Some people believe the weak and unlucky deserve, or have at least earned, their fate. You are poor or sick or dead because of what you did.

Others believe weakness and ill-fortune are symptoms and temporary, not permanent causes, not inevitable cosmic justice. They are the outcome of capitalism’s relentless algorithm busily harvesting human value, unrestrained by reason or empathy.

This misery could be mitigated by reining in the beast, reducing the harvest, making do with only profits, rather than ever increasing rates of profit increases. Stop being fucking crazy, in short.
