We are aware of the rising unemployment across Europe, but what doesn't get a lot of mention in our babbling brook of bullshit, the media, is that it is not just in Europe that capitalism has miserably failed. The world's unemployment figures are on the rise, another bit of proof, it it was needed, that capitalism doesn't work. At the end of year 2012, the world's unemployment figure stood at 197 million, a rise on the previous year of 4 million, and according to the “economic experts” it is set to rise by 5.1 million in 2013 and by a further 3 million in 2014. Again it is the young that are getting hit hardest, with 13% of the world's under 24's unemployed. According to the report, Global Unemployment Trends 2013, Long term unemployment is also growing with more than a third of Europe's jobless having been out of work for more than a year. It also stated that many, 39 million, had given up in looking for a job and had withdrawing from the labour market. This is the advanced capitalism, not a new fledgling system that is finding its feet. This is as good as it gets, capitalism is unable to see to the needs of the ordinary people across the globe. It is a system of privilege for the few and struggle for the many, a system driven by profit and fuelled by greed. It is a system that pampers parasites and tramples the poor. It is a failed and flawed system, It is only self defence to battle to destroy such an unjust system, we cannot be expected to sit by and tolerate a savage and brutal regime of exploitation and hand our grandchildren a heritage of deprivation. We have a right to be part of the shaping of our world, the world belongs to the people of the world, not to the blood sucking leeches and pampered parasites that at present hold the levers of power. Self defence is not a crime, and it is long past the time for the people to stand up and protect themselves.
