Have you noticed that the first weapon of choice in the arsenal of modern warfare is "economic sanctions"? This is especially true here in the United States: Incarceration. Jail terms for nonviolent first offenders and black Americans. Taxes. Unemployment. Minimum wage. Layoffs. Home foreclosures. Student loans. Inflation......All these things (and more) are the "economic sanctions" in the war against the poor, minorities, the little class, students and people on fixed incomes. It couldn't be more clear. Capitalism also has a negative side.
