Soapbox for the 99%: the grandest larceny ever – public funds handed over to bolster profit

99-3

 

John Tyrrell writes:

Schools, hospitals, even prisons contribute to the likes of the Chief Executives of G4S, and ATOS who thrive at the expense of the peoples’ misery. They take over key services providing poorly trained, low paid staff.

Is austerity necessary? Yes it is if you have the view that the key to a successful economy is maximising profit and rewarding the few who happen to be in the right place and the right time.

This is the dominant version espoused by politicians, the elite who court them and a press ever more tightly reigned in to serve their purpose.

Many more are seeing through the great lie and, as the power of the state is abused, resistance will intensify – as we have seen across Europe in Spain, Greece and now Turkey.

KC comments by email:

“the valuable deeds and opinions of the most responsible and conscientious individuals and front line workers count for very little when ruled by an inner circle within a financially driven and ruthlessly competitive establishment”.
