The Ugly Logic of Capitalism

Paraguay probes claims owner locked supermarket to avert looting; 340 dead

When I heard that the doors on the mall were locked by security guards in order to prevent alleged stealing of merchandise, I immediately thought of the infamous Triangle Factory Fire in 1911 NYC . In both cases, decision makers aligned with capital, locked in masses of people in buildings for the reasons of profit. Hopefully, this fire will result in as positive reforms as the NYC fire did. Hopefully Security Guards across the world will be told that human life is more important that corporate greed.
