99% Movement is about a lot more than Greed

I've started my TV programmes again - yaay. They will be broadcast weekly on Thursday via New Channel TV.

In this week's programme, I speak to the brilliant Hamid Taqvaee on the 99% movement, on the economic system, parliamentary democracy and socialism.

If you have any comments, post them here or email me so I can address the issues you raise in future programmes.

Next week's programme is on the Arab Spring.

Thanks Maryam for this valuable interview. I wish to add that greed is inherent in capitalism only because, economically speaking, the capitalist MUST extract the maximum profit (or other forms) from workers-consumers, or he will turn into a worker himself. This is why greed is a major component of the system and not an emotional attachment to describe unfairness. Greed, in this context, is as material in my view, as naked oppression used by the police, however it is always hidden under a whole pile of deception.
