One of a variety of Black Powder Press versions of stories that have been on anarchistnews.org, this is a personal account of the effects of capitalism, the dilemma that we all face, not in particulars (necessarily) but in flavor - the ways that we are all forced into bad situations because of how capitalism influences every part of our most private lives.
"Capitalism is not some abstract thing. It is deeply personal. It creates the channels through which care reaches (or doesn't reach) each of us. And that care [or lack of it] transforms us into who we are."
