Eat shit and die

See this article. The Pope's use of the dung metaphor is apt, since unbridled capitalism's motto is "eat shit and die." Some excerpts:

"Unbridled capitalism is the 'dung of the devil.'" says Pope Francis.

"Pope Francis has urged the downtrodden to change the world economic order, denouncing a 'new colonialism' by agencies that impose austerity programs and calling for the poor to have the 'sacred rights' of labor, lodging and land."

“Let us not be afraid to say it: we want change, real change, structural change,” the pope said, decrying a system that “has imposed the mentality of profit at any price, with no concern for social exclusion or the destruction of nature”.
