The Altar of Free Market Capitalism

Do we ignore the fact that millions of Americans work full time jobs and live in poverty? Do we blame the victims or look at the system that creates them? Do we treat them as unfortunate consequences of our economic system? Do we think of their condition as natural selection at work? Do we write them off? Do we write their children off too? Is this what America is about? Is this what our founding fathers envisioned for our future? Should it not be a basic right to be paid a living wage? Should millions of our children spend the most important years of their lives in poverty? Do we sacrifice millions on the altar of free market capitalism? Our people, our workers, our children are the strength and future of our nation. What is more important than our people and our families? Our nation is our people!
