The bourgeoisie cannot exist without constantly revolutionizing the instruments of production, and thereby the relations of production, and with them the whole relations of society. Conservation of the old modes of production in unaltered form, was, on the contrary, the first condition of existence for all earlier industrial classes. Constant revolutionizing of production, uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions, everlasting uncertainty and agitation distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones. All fixed, fast frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices and opinions, are swept away, all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real condition of life and his relations with his kind. The need of a constantly expanding market for its products chases the bourgeoisie over the entire surface of the globe.

3) It’s against the fucking LAW
4) Wrong, just fucking wrong…I have no more words

The economic is praxis (for lack of the better term) for materialism: it is the manifestation of human labor and activity. So why Marxism is always thought of as reducing everything to “the economic” is partially correct because Marxism reduces everything to its basis in materialism and human activity. If you can call that reduction. It’s more like staking a claim to humanity, in my opinion. I dunno.

Capitalism is necessarily pessimistic: “oh there’s nothing we can do, let the market decide”; “human nature is really shitty”; “if we don’t attack that country they’ll attack us.” This mentality serves as a way of legitimizing the system because it takes away any sort of human action that could better the system: it naturalizes this very manufactured phenomenon.

Now all the rebel groups are fighting amongst themselves to control the oil.
But groups affiliated with Al Qaeda control the most oil wells and fields in Syria.
Nice to see the EU’s true interests come to light.
When will the liberals stop calling us conspiracy theorists, when we say that the West just wants to break Syria up? It has clearly happened.
