Okay, so on this day in 1848 Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels gave us their Communist Manifesto. Unfortunately, this academic exercise was abused by totalitarianism and never had a chance. The two don't mix. Once Stalin started imprisoning poets and folk singers you knew the system was anything but what Plato had in minx when he spoke of his ideal society in The Republic. Back then, much as today, Capitalism had failed and so the need for Communism became a reality. Now, I for one don't want to see this happen again and it won't if we Stop Bad Capitalism.
Bad Capitalism is Donald Trump: profits and greed over regulations. Live for today, f*(k tomorrow! The CEO is God, the wage earner, better shut the f*(k up if he/she knows what is good for them. It is this Bad Capitalism that will destroy capitalism. Since the time of the Dutch East India company, capitalism has been a thing that needed to be regulated. Everyone knows this. Today, we have no regulations. The Corporation does as it pleases. This will kill capitalism.
But you don't care about that, you care about the real importance of this day: What Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was wearing during his 2018 visit to India. While the host wore Western clothes, Trudeau dressed like a Bollywood prince. That's right, the fact the world is melting isn't news: fashion, sports, and Fox News opinions is what you need.
Joseph de Maistre's words have never been so real:
