Is capitalism that bad?

Greedy capitalism graffiti in Hoboken

The propaganda game is everywhere. On all sides, left and right, up and down. But garbage signs like this one posted on Park Avenue in Hoboken kind of piss me off.

“The game of capitalism breeds dishonest men,” it reads.

I mean, really? So dishonesty never happened in any fascist, socialist, communist, or other kind of civilization, government or society? Who are these leftists anyway?

Meanwhile, the punk who applied this nonsensical message NEEDED capitalism to have the pen, paper and glue to apply his dopey message to this pole in the first place. Otherwise he’d have to learn a real skill like carving wood with real tools. What a maroon!

Maybe it was intended to piss you off or to start a dialog.

The guy that did this is fairly well known in NYC. He does alot of street drawings on the Upper east side. A bunch of actual framed works are in a gallery/store around 76th and 2nd? which I just passed today. Really him or a follower I wonder…..
