Capitalism. The Guardian myth?

16-12-2006 12:12

A comment I posted on the Guardian website underneath an article on the recent allegations of corruption towards the BAE arms manufacturer. I understood the debate to be centred on a choice, "Morality/Legality or Jobs". Some people saying... "We need to insist our government sticks to law" others saying "fuck that it will disrupt the economy and many, many people will be unemployed." Both reasonable arguments, no one seemed to be asking why that choice was necessary.

I wholeheartedly encourage everyone to reproduce and amend this letter as you see fit, and send it to him. This is a democracy, he needs to know what we think!

Detainees held at Campsfield House, Oxfordshire, are understood to have been on hunger strike for 4 days now. 66 detainees, mainly Turkish and Kurdish, were logged as having skipped meals on Monday and are consuming only sugared water and coffee.

Verdict Due in THC4MS Trial

14-12-2006 23:27

Three providers of medicinal cannabis to MS sufferers are due to be judged tomorrow in Carlisle, where the jury will be asked to decide if they conspired to break the law or if, in fact they did their best to work within it. The common law defence of medical necessity in cannabis cases was removed after this alleged offence was committed and the changed law is being applied retrospectively. Hardly fair, is it?

Pinochet is dead! It is time to kill the system that spawned him!

14-12-2006 19:22

The fact that the death of Pinochet on Sunday sparked off celebrations in Chile and around the world should surprise no one. He was a hated figure, a living symbol of the real face of the bourgeoisie.

In "normal" times the capitalists prefer to govern through "democratic" parliamentary means, so long as their fundamental interests are guaranteed. But the capitalist system cannot always guarantee that its interests can be defended through parliamentary means. History is full of examples where the bourgeoisie has preferred to do away with the niceties of "democracy"... Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Suharto... the list is endless.
