This morning I heard a good sermon on the 9/11 attacks at my church. My pastor talked about the effect it had on the people in our parish, and to our nation. Last week they had passed out red stars with the names of the people who had died in that terrorist attack. For a week the parishioners were to do one random act of kindness in commemoration to the person who was named in the red star.
I remember the attacks on the twin towers and the Pentagon very well. I was at work at the time, and I remember how stunned my coworkers and I were at the news. One of my coworker was vacationing in New York City, and she was at the Statue of Liberty and saw one of the planes hit a tower.
During that time, I remember most vividly how we all mourned the victims and their families. In Washington D.C. Democrats and Republicans united in support of President Bush, who went to New York to give consolation to families and to commend the firefighters and policement who risked their lives to go in the Towers to try to rescue people.
In the ten years that have followed, a lot has changed in this nation. We've gotten into two wars, the political parties have gotten more polarized, we've struggled with balancing civil liberties with the security needs of the state. Right now we're mired in a world wide recession, the worst we've seen since the Depression. It's a scary world that we're facing right now.

For the past few decades, Conservatives and members of the Right have been accusing the Left or anyone who criticizes Capitalism and the free market system of being Marxists or Socialists. An example of this is the past three years, with Tea Party members labeling President Obama and his policies as being Marxist. It seems that many in the Right assume that the only critiques of Capitalism have come from Karl Marx. This is a fallacy, as many other individuals and groups have been critical of the Capitalist system. Here are a few of the critiques of the Capitalist system that I found.
