Death By A Thousand Cuts
The free market economy is just great. Our current political status sees tax cuts and endless efficiency movements. Everything our society is built on has been constructed by the lowest bidder, and done on the cheap. The necessary infrastructure that keeps our society in place has been reduced to a barely cohesive, cost-efficient, tax-cut skeleton. Held together by luck and duct tape. In the meantime, the UK Government provides £13billion in military aid to Saudi Arabia in underwiting missle and plane deals.
Still, capitalism will provide a solution. Fishing the dead out of the river can be profitable. Ask Halliburton.
