I Hate the Capitalist System

I Hate the Capitalist System

In 1973, Paredon Records gave Barbara Dane the opportunity to speak about the struggles of the American working class on I Hate The Capitalist System. She offers social commentary on the Ludlow Massacre of 1914 and the disadvantages of capitalism to the struggle in Vietnam. She sings these 14 political ballads in a traditional folk style, accompanying herself on guitar. Liner notes include an opening essay by Irwin Silver about Kane and the inspiration for her work, lyrics and explanation for each song.
