Money, Money, Money
We were on the right path when we said all men (and women) should be created equal. Markets are like banks: at the end of the day it is those who have the most influence in either sector (or both) who provide the resources. We have to remember that Bush was for a free market and that the Charles Dicken’s industrial age was also under a free market system. Dickens wrote books about how dreadful that period was! And many comparisons can be made to our current freemarket systems. Monopolies are an inevitable recurrence in a market system whether it be “free” or not. And every system up to present has used capitalism and has seen this moral deterioration as Dawkins saw it. We tend to forget that there was a real person 2000 years ago that protested the moral depravity of money and his name was Jesus Christ. As all good ideas, it was quickly manipulated to make a good life long buck.
I am an anarchist and atheist but I see Jesus as a human being who was right on track “money is the root of all evil”! We need to all be equal in order to call ourselves free and the only way to do this is to free ourselves from social inequality. We are not on this planet to make some cash, we are here to survive and colonize other galaxies (where once again we can doodle with the concept of inequality)… The difference between true anarchism and communism is that in an anarchist system there are no central banks (even in communism there were elites).
