Professor Read has delivered lectures and written an essay about Occupy Wall St. movement. The source of this particular quote may come as a surprise: from a Facebook status update.
In Britain how hatred towards claimants is circulated - Atos Origin calls disabled 'parasites'
A quotation by the trade unionist and Labour politician, Ernest Bevin, in Francis Williams’ biography of the great man:
Unemployment is not accidental. it is deliberate on the part of the capitalistic system. The one weapon in the hands of the capitalist is starvation, not his brains, ability or managerial capacity, but his ability to hold or withhold the means to life to break you when your children cry for bread. (p. 91).
This is all too true in today's UK - thousands struggle to survive on FoodBank handouts - David Cameron & 10 Downing Street are deliberately enslaving the people in a George Orwell 1984 style of starvation, enslavement & control.
The Libertarians of the Chicago School recommended that there should be a constant unemployment rate of 6 per cent in order to prevent wages rising. And Margaret Thatcher’s administration deliberately destroyed British heavy industries, such as mining and steel, in order to break the unions.
Who are the parasites in society ?
In recent years we have witnessed the parliamentary expenses scandal in the House of Commons & it seems acceptable to Fiddle expenses if you sit in the House of Lords.
Our conclusion ...... contemptuous !!! Ask this question - who are the parasites in society ?
