Capitalism causes cancer,
both the kind you’re thinking of,
and another kind:
Cities are tumors on the Earth,
our precious home planet.
What Is Cancer?
Cancer is the general name for a group of more than 100 diseases. Although there are many kinds of cancer, all cancers start because abnormal cells grow out of control. Untreated cancers can cause serious illness and death.
Normal cells in the body
The body is made up of trillions of living cells. Normal body cells grow, divide, and die in an orderly fashion. During the early years of a person’s life, normal cells divide faster to allow the person to grow. After the person becomes an adult, most cells divide only to replace worn-out or dying cells or to repair injuries.
How cancer starts
Cancer starts when cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. Cancer cell growth is different from normal cell growth. Instead of dying, cancer cells continue to grow and form new, abnormal cells. Cancer cells can also invade (grow into) other tissues, something that normal cells cannot do. Growing out of control and invading other tissues are what makes a cell a cancer cell.
Normal subsistence farmers,
in an ideal,
in an orderly fashion.
Farmers would only reproduce
worn out or dying farmers.
The cancer we call cities,
is a concentration of humans,
who are not farmers,
and who are fed by farmers far away,
and all the food must be shipped in,
to the cities.
Growing out of control
is what makes cities
tumors of cancer
on our Earth.
The cities demand
everything we have.
If we have lots of fossil fuels,
the cities demand
that we use it all,
to produce the food,
ship it in,
and give us a way to travel to jobs,
and to the food stores.
The cities demand
until the fossil fuels are depleted,
and the city dwellers die,
this recent diary
for more details,
graphs to convince you,
that the famine is coming to America.
Last week’s Anti-Capitalist diary
already laid out
the capitalists’ sad progression
from letting farmers farm for food,
to forcing them to work for money,
and the cities are a tool of the capitalists,
a tool to force folks to work for money,
which generates more wealth and power
for the capitalists.
At the expense of millions dying of famine.
Thanks for reading.
