Unemployment and the True Capitalist Parasites

January 9, 2014

I found this piece on the Tumblr site, Visceral Surreality, which reproduces beautiful and often strange images.

Jason Read Capitalist Parasites

It’s a quotation from Jason Read, which states:

‘People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as parasites fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognised by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society’.

Very succinctly put, and increasingly very true, as we’re seeing from the examples of the Coalition everyday.
