"These moral absolutes are hard to follow.
Just give us something tangible to swallow....
What keeps a man alive: it's his compulsion
to steal and cheat and kick his fellow man in the face.
We have to eat the shit without revulsion,
and turn our backs upon the human race.
You have to kill your neighbor to survive.
It's selfishness that keeps a man alive."
Thanks to Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill for spelling out so clearly what capitalism has taught its children.
