The healthcare and burial rituals of neoliberalism

Ebola Mar 4 2015

One of the most inspiring things about neoliberalism, the barbaric phase of capitalism, is the dignity it affords the sick & dying. Often people denied medical care who get sick are just dumped in unmarked, mass graves like they were landfill & not human beings with feelings, dreams, kids, people who love them & will miss them. To neoliberalism they’re just chattel & offal of no consequence whatsoever.

Our deepest regrets we are not yet able to restrain plunder but that day will come & the sound of justice will be thunderous.
