Banks vs Credit Unions
Many of you have heard about the recent move by many consumers of financial services from fucking banks to credit unions. What many of you may not know is that credit unions are the creation of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, a damn fine Anarchist from France a couple centuries back. He called them People's Banks. They were meant to be run with just enough of a profit for them to keep spruce and hardy. Today's credit unions have strayed from that principle some but they remain the ethical choice when it comes to a place to do your financial business with.
Fuck the banks.
Was a time I used banks. Pulled out of my last one about 30 years ago because it looked like they were supporters of Racist South Africa. Motherfuckers. The rest of them are no fucking better.
Like I said, fuck the banks.
