Crisis Point


I came across this comment which is posted beneath, on an on-line discussion board, so decided to share it whist at the same time posting a link for the full text of Gordon Brown’s speech: A Future for All:

I think capitalism has reached crisis point. Don’t take my word for it just listen to the systems greatest supporters! It cannot pay people a decent pension, look after the increasing elderly population, provide basic public goods, utilise nature in a rational efficient way. Instead it must make savage cuts, force people to work in dead end jobs until they drop dead, waste vast human and material resources on making profits and controlling its social antagonisms. Neither the Tories nor the Labour party will address these problems. It is socialism or barbarism my friends!
