When I’m not being several bands, i work long nightshifts in a busy rental place to make my many interest payments on my many debts. Night after night, the place is booked for lavish parties hosted by rich folks, im talking $250 000 lavish. Hundreds of people work to put these things on, planners, cleaners, security, cooks, waiters, technicians. … Of course only the finest foods are served and fresh flowers and booze are plentiful.
How can the people who pay for these things live with themselves? I mean, we’re suffering from global food and fuel shortages and these assholes have the audacity to blow unbelievable amounts of wasted resources and labour on some fucking party- an orgy of indulgence. And sometimes they’ll call it a fundraiser, a Goddamn FUNDRAISER!
Imagine if all these skilled workers had been producing food for the poor instead, in fact, imagine all the people in the world who provide luxury to the rich were providing basic needs to the poor. Shortages solved, immediately, problem gone in the blink of an eye. — but fuck no! Its more important that some rich prick can prove he’s richer than last week’s rich prick.
This is not a systemic problem, do not be mistaken. Don’t blame it on the machine. Don’t blame it on the people who service the rich either, what choice do I and others have? I’m so far in debt I have to do whatever will pay my bills and thats perfect. Those of us who can provide something the rich want, work like dogs, everyone else starves.
No, blame rich people.
And get angry. If they felt even the slightest moral obligation to their fellow man, they’d shoot themselves to feed thousands.
