Everyone I know is anti-capitalist. Even the most pro-capitalist person I know – my aunt, who is a Tamil Ayn Rand – criticizes capitalism because she believes it destroys the “spiritual community of human beings” (She is a Sai Baba devotee). Suddenly, everyone is a radical and everything is anti-capitalist. And if we read certain ‘left’ pamphlets, we might even get convinced that the revolution is at the doorstep. Suddenly, there is spiritual community between the London riots, and Ferguson, and Baltimore and all such eruptions of rage of the oppressed. Suddenly, vegans, ecofeminists, liberals, anti-racists, Brahmins, shitty novelists, flop Tamil movie directors, James Cameron have all become allies in the fight against capitalism. Even assuming that all these are anti-capitalist, what are they fighting for? From where I stand, it seems everyone are only fighting for “beer without alcohol”, or capitalism without the harm and stupor that it brings about. I prefer beer with alcohol, especially super strong beer.
