Here is a photo of a young Stephen Hawking (with the canes) in London marching against the war in Vietnam in 1969.

More than 30 years later he spoke out fervently against the war in Iraq. He also joined the BDS movement against Israel, calling the situation “like that in South Africa before 1990. It cannot continue.”

He wasn’t just one of the most brilliant minds of our times, he was also someone with a social conscience and critical of capitalism, saying:

“If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.”

Rest in power, Stephen Hawking.

“The healthcare business is probably the most distressing example of what happens when we ‘let the market decide.’ Health care for profit means delivering the least amount of health care service for the maximum amount of money.” — Paul D'Amato (via cartoonpolitics)

Capitalism is created through racism, exclusion and genocide. If Europe hadn’t conquered, colonized, Africa and the Americas, it wouldn’t have had the means of payment and the raw materials to make the Industrial Revolution. If they hadn’t perpetrated the African genocide, they wouldn’t have developed the insurance industry, and other things which promoted the first accumulation of capital in the UK. In consequence [capitalism] is the son of genocide, without any doubt.
— Dr. Raúl Zaffaroni - Argentine Supreme Court Judge (via God's Consolation Prize)

when people say that raising the minimum wage will hurt workers because of layoffs or inflation they’re really just admitting that capitalism is structurally unable to provide an adequate standard of living for the working class
