In these days of austerity, capitalism is not looking as good as it did just a few years ago, the man in the street has finally begun to realise that capitalism is not going to give him a bigger piece of the pie, in-fact over the last few years his piece of pie has been getting smaller.
This 50 year old quote from Che Guevara is now looking somewhat nearer the mark!
Che Guevara wrote:
The laws of capitalism, which are blind and are invisible to ordinary people, act upon the individual without he or she being aware of it. One sees only the vastness of a seemingly infinite horizon ahead. That is how it is painted by capitalist propagandists who purport to draw a lesson from the example of Rockefeller — whether or not it is true — about the possibilities of individual success. The amount of poverty and suffering required for a Rockefeller to emerge, and the amount of depravity entailed in the accumulation of a fortune of such magnitude, are left out of the picture, and it is not always possible for the popular forces to expose this clearly…. It is a contest among wolves. One can win only at the cost of the failure of others.
