Quote of the Week: Money and People Work in Opposite Ways

“Money and people work in opposite ways. The freer money is, the worse for people. Economic neoliberalism—the only and ultimate system imposed by the North on the South as the end of history—consecrates oppression under the banner of freedom. In the free market the victory of the strong is natural; the annihilation of the weak is legitimate. Racism rises to the status of economic doctrine. The North confirms divine justice: God rewards the chosen people and castigates inferior races, condemned by biology to laziness, violence, and inefficiency. In a single day, a worker from the North earns more than one from the South could in half a month.  ( Edward Galeano in We Say No—Chronicles)
