A random dude did about $15,000 worth of damage to the famous bronze “Charging Bull” sculpture, by attacking it with a banjo. He managed to cut a deep gash in the thick bronze.

Capitalism is very fragile.

macgregor13mathers:

Capitalism is not a form of government, it is an economic system based on private ownership of the earth’s land, resources and technology (and the associated wage slavery). Democratic governments were created to act as a balance to unchecked private power (capitalism/fascism/imperialism). Basically, capitalism and fascism are essentially the same thing – one is a theoretical economic model, the other is that model in practice/reality.
