'Capitalism' and externalities.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: So. The corporations which sell you the crap which harms your health, whilst they pretend it's "food" - they ignore a major externality - your health. Any problems you face - the cost of fixing that must be deducted from the 'profit' of the 'food' producers and the supply chain, all the way to the retail end. But they don't. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: This is screwing the NHS up and on top of that soon Crazy-eyes Johnson will be selling the NHS off and when you do get ill the same nebulous group of profiteers who made you ill, who ignored externalities and made money by stealing your health (you can't get something for nothing) will then make huge profits from forcing you to pay through your nose for the health THEY stole from you. More externality-ignoring.

Removal of resistance: Read more about externalities in the works of Chomsky or watch some of his many lectures easily found on Youtube and elsewhere online. Unification: The words of George Orwell pertaining to the present nature of 'work' and capitalism and 'wages' and slavery may also be very pertinent to any such analysis you may make or research.
