I am trying to tell myself this.
My phone is about to be shut off, and I am about to default on my student loans.
I just saw Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A love story."
Very thought-provoking. Perhaps a little heavy handed, but, really, as the film wore on I was shocked by how calculated the whole financial apparatus was. Citibank owns my student loans. My minimum payment is something to the tune of $4,000. That's really interesting.
Anyway. I probably shouldn't whine about my financial woes on the internet, I suppose that's tacky. I am lucky enough to have a roof over my head and all that. I can't say I was ever a capitalist, but by this point, I'm definitely a socialist.
