spectre is haunting the world – the spectre of Capitulism…

It happened precisely at 11.09 p.m. on a Saturday at a friend’s 30th birthday after only three glasses of wine. News had just broken that Yogi Adityanath was going to ascend to the highest seat in Lucknow and everyone was talking about how broken everything is. The world is wrecked, social structures have crumbled, philosophy is ruined, and capitalism is broken. That’s when realisation struck. I am no longer a capitalist – I am a capitulist.
