Yesterday, the protesters at St Paul’s dressed as zombies and marched through the City to “dance on the grave of capitalism”. At last they are being clear, they want capitalists dead and they want to feed, as the pictures clearly show, by buying their food (presumably some kind of carrion) using the expropriated wages of dead capitalists.
Oh hang on, that isn’t clear at all. If the capitalists are dead, who’s wages will they claim ownership of? Who’s wages do they want to be fed? And while we’re at it, why is that zombie wearing a suit?
Oh I see, perhaps they are pretending they are the zombies of the dead capitalists they plan to kill. But no, that’s no better, why would a capitalist want to feed off a socialist’s wages. Socialists reject all wages (because money is evil) and tend not to earn them anyway because (and I’m pretty sure about this bit) socialist countries tend to be incredibly poor.
Then again, they are pretending to be dead zombie capitalists. Perhaps the narrative of this little story is that the part of the brain responsible for economic reasoning was eaten out by maggots and they are all pretending to be confused dead zombie bankers murdered by tent dwelling socialists and mistakenly asking socialists for non-existent evil wages to feed their accursed afterlives?
Phew! Quite a plot twist that one, I was nearly confused myself.
