Philisophical Guerrilla

"The philisophical guerrilla should identify contradictions and push them into their opposites. Capitalism promises prosperity yet millions particualry in the developing world live in poverty. Despite wealth millions of others feel their lives to be pointless and boring. Despite freedom of choice we have little say in decision making. Despite the 'free market', multinationals call the tune. To achieve short term economic 'security', we are destorying life. Contradictions can be made more obvious and the owners of 'the mental means of production' put on the defensive." 1
