Not Antiwar, Just on the Other Side
That's how I'd sum up this terrific article
at the American Thinker.For reasons we need not go into here, some people in capitalism develop an aversion toward it. Needless to say, it can be seen and felt in many places – at anti-establishment rallies, globalization protests, in the ranks of our cultural and intellectual elites, among radical activists, and the movies of Michael Moore to mention just a few – where capitalism is spoken of as evil, exploitative, alienating, dehumanizing and such.
I tend to view the anti-capitalist outlook as an expression of laziness more than anything else. It takes hard work to get anything in a capitalist society; the communists promise us deliverance from effort. As an aside, has anybody else noticed that the youth "movements" of the last 50 years have all had a lazy core? The beatniks in the 1950s, the counterculture in the 1960s and early 1970s were both profoundly lazy. The slackers of the 1980s-1990 advertized their sloth in the name.
