Revolution Newspaper mentions this snippet: “In the health care debate, John Mackey (CEO of Whole Foods) raised up a storm among liberals last week with his op-ed column in the Wall Street Journal. Among Mackey’s cold-blooded comments, he pointed out:

“Health care is a service that we all need, but just like food and shelter it is best provided through voluntary and mutually beneficial market exchanges. A careful reading of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution will not reveal any intrinsic right to health care, food or shelter. That’s because there isn’t any. This ‘right’ has never existed in America.”

This begs the question if the Constitution can not guarantee the right to have shelter, to eat or get treated with medicine, then what the fuck good is it?! This subject exposes the US Constitution as an exploiter’s view of freedom, designed from the top down. The World has a better document to work by, ‘The Communist Manifesto’:

“Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the
products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the
power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such

Or compare the CEO’s outlook with that of modern Communist thought:

“[Bob]Avakian [Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA] shows how the sights and aspirations of people today, the world over, are funneled and hemmed into looking at things in terms which do not go beyond the outlook and values which capitalism engenders and thrives upon, and the social relations in which those ideas are rooted. Today these are deemed to be the result of “human nature.” But another, radically different world is possible, with a different and far more liberating conception of rights and freedom. Avakian paints a compelling picture of a world where people would have the right not to confront each other in antagonistic relations…where there would be the right to eat for every human being—and no one would be worked to death for the profit of others, but people would work cooperatively to meet the needs of all…where all of humanity would have the right to engage in the arts, or in science and in other intellectual thought, and where the research and discovery in medicine and science that today is subordinated to the economic, political, and ideological demands of capital would be emancipated from that. A communist world where people are no longer constrained by the narrow horizons which are the product of and demanded by capitalism.”

What the world needs is the basis of Marxism: “From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs.” This is the exact opposite of what Capitalism produces.
