Independence Day

“A civics lesson from a slaver, hey neighbor
Your debts are paid ’cause you don’t pay for labor
We plant seeds in the South. We create.Yeah, keep ranting
We know who’s really doing the planting…
Ah, winning was easy, young man, governing’s harder”
Cabinet Battle #1, Hamilton

For those that are unsure as to why I quoted this part of Hamilton, it’s so that you understand that capitalism in the United States flourished due to the exploitation of labor (slavery was free labor).
