Pristine Angie’s Home − The Wizard of Capitalism

Which Religion Cares the Most about the Homeless? This is a photo taken by Reddit user Ventachinkway that has gone viral on the interweb. While it has sparked lively debate about religion and the homeless, the first thing that came to my mind was “the genius of capitalism in one shot.”

Now don’t get me wrong, I may look like a communist to the untrained eye, but I was raised on Shaw’s Major Barbara. I believe in free economy, corporate Darwinism, advertising manipulation to cater to the obsessive preoccupation with the self, and the mind-numbing industrial conspicuous-consumer complex that capitalism thrives on for the free world to flourish. I believe in it, I just don’t buy into it.
