Michael Parenti“Well, I argue that one of the functions of a capitalist state is to defend capitalism from itself, to defend capitalism from the capitalists. It was Marx—dare we mention him? I hear he’s coming back in style. It was Marx who said one capitalist will kill many other capitalists, that the system begins to consume itself.  …..The free market does not work. It’s not free. It’s not really a market; it’s a plunder. And it has to be done away with. ”

I’d love to take a class from Michael Parenti. You can find his resent interview with Democracy Now! here.
