Ernest Bevin on Capitalism’s Deliberate Creation of Unemployment

If only all the different organisations & factions within the socialist movement in the UK could come together using the TUC as its umbrella then & only then shall we make the changes that most socialist dream of. If only, if only their was a way .Cometh the hour that signals the woman to end this debacle of evil. Why are socialist men such incompetent misogynist scrappers. Their main philosophy is entombed within their phallic pride of a brain. They still hold on to their old fashioned , tired & negative cheap self pride. Who wants to be ruled & governed by a government of dick heads. Being born a man ,I still have fantasy’s of this slave capitalist society ending. Sadly a never ending dream !

I found this quotation by the trade unionist and Labour politician, Ernest Bevin, in Francis Williams’ biography of the great man:

Unemployment is not accidental. it is deliberate on the part of the capitalistic system. The one weapon in the hands of the capitalist is starvation, not his brains, ability or managerial capacity, but his ability to hold or withhold the means to life to break you when your children cry for bread. (p. 91).

This is all too true. The Libertarians of the Chicago School recommended that there should be a constant unemployment rate of 6 per cent in order to prevent wages rising. And Margaret Thatcher’s administration deliberately destroyed British heavy industries, such as mining and steel, in order to break the unions.
