The Audacity of Despair

“We have given our democratic birthright over to capital itself. Capital has succeeded in buying the remnants of democracy at wholesale prices, so that profit can always be maximized and any other societal need or priority can be ignored. Eventually, a deep and abiding apathy prevails.  Either that, or someone picks up a brick.”

- David Simon (creator of The Wire)
