we need to come to grips

Posted to Poetry and Politics




we need to come to grips with the fact that democratic capitalism is not necessarily the carrot we should be chasing.....there is every indication that the system will implode as did the common system in russia...the problem is everyone thinks "it's not perfect but it's the best we have"....without looking too hard at the alternatives...we put it on a pedestal and worship it....if you don't pray hard enough, you're branded a socialist or a looney....now we're exporting it which should only hasten the implosion, but on a global scale

this is the first step....realizing where this system is taking us....it's quite clear, to me anyway, that something must be changed....and moreso than what my country's brand of socialism has to offer....


unfortunately, i do not have the answer....


but this would be a nice, first step, i think
