Karl Marx on “free trade”, 1848 (via socialismartnature)
But the worker is fooled by the illusion that he is not truly free. People are so convinced that they have to exist within the system to prosper (and then are disappointed when the don’t prosper). Too many people take their freedom for granted. Unless you are in a situation where non-conformity means death, you can do anything you want.
Those who make their fortune through capitalism do so on the backs of those who think they have no choice to buy into the dream.
