EXon E on Synergy Deli Independent Bank 3.600.อ181 713.600.6655 8163 ATM chrisdigay: leftist-daily-reminders:Warehouses of goods exist, owners fence off these resources in order to extract profit out of people in dire need. Capitalism corrupts our human instincts and emphasizes our capacity to be horrible to each other. fuck shit The irony about freemarket theology, which is what I consider it, is that it makes the claim that a free market will lead to the best possible outcome for both the consumer and the business and thus the entire nation/society, yet we can see here that letting the market do its thing aka letting corporations do whatever they want creates a schism when it comes to benefits: the benefits all go to the massive corporation and the consumers who are supposed to benefit from the allegedly benevolent actions of the market end up getting screwed. When exactly does the worshipped supply and demand come into play to save the day? No consumer is demanding to pay this much money. Free marketers will retort with well the government is responsible for making these companies monopolies!! REALLY?? And even if that is true (in some cases it is) having no government and no regulations at all I doubt would translate into the utopía freemarketers promise. The market is incapable of fixing many problems and leads to the creation of monopolies. Competition doesnt always lead to innovation and often leads to mightier companies buying out and destroying smaller ones. This notion that the freemarket represents everyones choices is absolute hogwash. Idk why this made me so mad like wtf

Fml, Memes, and Oblige: Suzie uru Imagine Harry and Ginny a few months into their marriage and they're so happy and in love and then one day they go shopping for food and household items and Harry just casually grabs certain items before Ginny hisses at him to "Check the prices, Harry, God! That bed set is far too expensive, were not going to have anything left to get the food with! And Harry starts to laugh and say "We dont have to worry about and then he stops and he and Ginny look at each other. And Harry realizes that she's grown up having to measure out all her money and decide what she can and cannot have for a certain week or month or year. And Ginny realizes that she is actually no longer obligated to worry about money ever again. Imagine Harry and Ginny eating dinner together and Ginny's telling him about certain meals her mum made and teasing him about how he wolfs everything down and "Honestly Harry, youre worse than Ron!" and Harry retorts laughingly well old habits die hard, Ihad to fight Dudley for meals all the time, you at least knew you were going to eat every day! And Ginny's grin starts to fade and she asks "You...you didntget to eat everyday? And Harry realizes what he said and he changes the subject quickly and Ginny looks at the plates in front of him and resists the urge to pile on some more potatoes. And the next day Vernon Dursley's car is egged Imagine Harry and Ginny both suffering from night terrors and PTSD and agreeing that maybe going to that therapist Hermione recommended isn't such a bad idea, and that's how Thursday night became Therapy Night when they go out to dinner or to the pub after each session and agree that they need to talk to some Healers about introducing these sessions since therapy is still widely seen as muggle nonsense in the wizarding world. And Ginny murmurs over her fire whiskey that sometimes she can still hear Tom Riddle murmuring in her ear, and Harry whispers that he dreams about running after his mother and father and Sirius and Remus as they disappear behind the Veil in the Department of Mysteries and he doesn't know if he wakes from terror or regret about not making it through. And thev ao back home and hold each other closer that night and both wake ••••••• love 40 degree Australia weather fml
