'Ne jamais sortir des Nombres et des Êtres' (Baudelaire)

Marx's  definition of capitalism needs to be updated :-

An economic system now based on gambling
and the absolutism of Winners (Saved)
and Losers (Damned)

in which those who do the most essential work*
are rewarded the least, while the
profiteers and gamblers get ever richer
and pillage the planet more and more.

*public services, cleaning, caring....

Hard work, of course, stops people from thinking.

Capitalism is a cult. Work is a religious duty through which you will be saved or blessed or shuttled into Paradise.
