    Labor expenses are always going to be minimized.
    Maybe one day that will be one of the line-item failings of capitalism @ Wikipedia, but as long as we continue to consider all economic questions, answers and circumstances from the perspective of the capitalist, that quote means that people will die under the illusion that fairness and justice have been served.
    Labor expenses are always going to be minimized.
    conceals the fact that capitalists kill people as indifferently as homeowners kill roaches.  People CANNOT matter if capital is to be preserved and "given its due".

    Money and power are their own value system, and not a value system like is taught in any real society on earth.  These are, it seems, the values of the ruling class itself.  Everyone else exists to be used or disposed of.  There is no appeal;  requesting one is insulting.  If you have the upper hand, use it - ruthlessly - and if you don't, negotiate what you can and bide your time.

    Indeed, it's "people's" fault if they've allowed themselves to be injured by the singularly self-interested pursuits of others.  They should have made "better choices".

    The rush into the New Feudalism has picked up alarming speed.

    I am a leaf on the wind - i hover, twirl, float,
    Weightless, frictionless, I fly
