Attila the stockbroker cleans up the city

From Blairwatch in the UK. Read the whole thing.

Capitalism is a John Cleese parrot.
Let’s give it stick and not a single carrot!
Bollocks to the dealer, the broker, the lender –
Social justice back on the agenda
Radical stylin’ going on here
Smoked Mammon sarnies and really good beer
For the poor no fear, for the rich no pity
When Attila the Stockbroker cleans up the City!

Well, capitalism survived the Great Depression, and that era included a major upsurge in hardcore communist organizing, including here in the US too. So perhaps proclamations of ‘stick a fork in it’ are a teensy premature.

Ending global warming and creating a cleantech, renewable energy economy (which is what will get us out of the current crisis) will require massive amounts of money and the cooperation of huge corporations. A raggedy bunch of anarcho-socialist greenies from the Left don’t have the chops to create and install the enormous numbers of wind and wave farms, solar power arrays and geothermal plants needed to power our countries, and oh, the grids needed upgrading too.  So, let’s jail the rich who broke the law during their piggish pursuits, and get the rest on board with taking their money and creating something of use with it – like a renewable energy economy.

Besides, I don’t want to eat the rich. I doubt they taste good.
