What is unique about capitalism is the systematic expropriation of labor for the sole purpose of accumulation. Capital annexes living labor in order to accumulate more capital. The ultimate purpose of work is not to perform services for consumers or sustain life and society, but to make more and more money for the investor irrespective of the human and environmental costs.

NOTE
For the past year, I’ve felt so paralyzed by my economic prospects that I’ve been research.ing how people are able to survive. Where do I find myself in this economy as an artist? Will I ever be able to buy a house? Will I ever be able to retire? What I’ve found is that the economy is not just inadequate for artists, it is inadequate for nearly everyone. Growing in.equality is a deliberate act, cultivated over time, and so pervasive it is hard to see. My hope in sharing these grim facts is that peo.ple will see the commonality in our struggles, and question the machinery of our systems. In Solidarity, Sarah sarahlutkenhaus.com
