GGGGGooooooooooooooLLLLLL! – Reblogged from High Grade Discourse

When a mother in search of food and shelter for her children must pass by shops filled with the most refined delicacies of refined gluttony; when gorgeous and insolent luxury is displayed side by side with the most execrable misery; when the dog and the horse of a rich man are far better cared for than millions of children whose mothers earn a pitiful salary in the pit or the manufactory; when each “modest” evening dress of a lady represents eight months, or one year, of human labor; when enrichment at somebody else’s expense is the avowed aim of the “upper classes” and no distinct boundary can be traced between honest and dishonest means of making money – then FORCE is the only means for maintaining such a state of things. – Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921)
