Capitalism – The Musical

The Sissy Cheats

“A society that is in its higher circles and on its middle levels widely believed to be a network of smart rackets does not produce men with an inner moral sense; a society that is merely expedient does not produce men of conscience.
A society that narrows the meaning of ‘success’ to the big money and in its terms condemns failure as the chief vice, raising money to the plane of absolute value, will produce the sharp operator and the shady deal. Blessed are the cynical, for only they have what it takes to succeed.” – C. Wright Mills

As part of our “Capitalism – The Musical” project, which takes various texts by well known (and more obscure) writers on Capitalism (C. Wright Mills, Paul Goodman, Thorstein Veblen, Evert Cilliers and others) and marries them to contemporary music, we’ve created a video for “The Sissy Cheats” which you can see here:
