Enlightened Governments Place Morality People First - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
neoliberalism dangers were past inherent
in early 1930s because any laissez-faire state
policy stifles competition as ruthless corrupt
strong devour victim weak since monopolies
cartels deadly pose a threat to freedom of competition
crushing competitors pushing up extortion prices
multinational corporations will plunder resources
destroy equality morality well-developed legal systems
enlightened capable civil rights regulatory apparatus
enlightened governments people will place
humanistic social values above gross profits
on a par with shared profits economic efficiency
