    Workers of the world, UNITE!
    Too bad they never will.

    Well, the whole world is a pretty lofty goal.

    I’d settle for place by place, nation-state by nation-state. :)

    History’s a pretty difficult thing to predict, especially on the “never” side. Margaret Thatcher’s “There is no alternative” to modern capitalism is the same thing that romans, greeks, genghis khan, chinese emperors, kings, sultans, nobles, stalins etc. said about the society that they’re in charge of. I think that part of what is so interesting about history is the way that societies transform, disintegrate…a central part of that seems to be struggles between people with different economic interests, or “classes”.

    I love this comic! Awesome illustration of how production works, and what “exploitation” means under all of the connotations.
