The whole history of modern industry

Dennoch zeigt die ganze Geschichte der modernen Industrie, daß das Kapital, wenn ihm nicht Einhalt geboten wird, ohne Gnade und Barmherzigkeit darauf aus ist, die ganze Arbeiterklasse in diesen Zustand äußerster Degradation zu stürzen.

Tutta la storia dell’industria moderna mostra che il capitale, se non gli vengono posti dei freni, lavora senza scrupoli e senza misericordia per precipitare tutti i lavoratori nella più profonda degradazione.

The whole history of modern industry shows that capital, if not checked, will unscrupulously and ruthlessly work to cast down the whole working class to the utmost state of degradation.

(Aldous Huxley, Ends and Means, 1937)

Alan Greenspan declared: “Well, first of all, the Federal Reserve is an independent agency, and that means, basically, that there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take. So long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or the Congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don't, frankly, matter.”
