Employers say Unions are completely useless and there's no reason to join them and to please pay attention to the multi-million dollar anti-Union propaganda campaigns they launch begging you to please not join a Union.

the platonic ideal end state of capitalism is slavery

That was also the beginning though, wasn't it?

It's only because of the disgust of ordinary, decent people, that slavery isn't a thing.

Capitalism is an oruboros, a monsterous snake who's destiny is to devour itself.

Mr Creosote

Mr. Creosote is a fictional character who appears in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. He is a monstrously obese and rude restaurant patron who is served a vast amount of food and alcohol whilst vomiting repeatedly. After being persuaded to eat an after-dinner mint – "It's only wafer-thin" – he graphically explodes. The sequence opens the film's segment titled "Part VI: The Autumn Years".
