Scrooge's Capital Ambition

  1. 1. “What’s Christmas time to you but a time for finding yourself a year older, but not an hour richer. Every idiot who goes about with ‘Merry Christmas’ on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. Community empowerment? Humbug, why do we have prisons and workhouses? A whole day off for Christmas? I suppose you must – but be early the next day to make up.
  2. 2. The first ghost – Scrooge’s dead partner Jacob Marley. “You are fettered,” said Scrooge, trembling. “Tell me why?” “I wear the chain I forged in life. Each link a person I put in debt”. “I am here to-night to warn you, that you have yet a chance and hope of escaping my fate.”
  3. 3. Scrooge followed to the window: desperate in his curiosity. He looked out. The air was filled with phantoms, wandering hither and thither in restless haste, and moaning as they went. Every one of them wore chains like Marley’s Ghost; some few (they might be guilty Councils) were linked together; none were free.
  4. 4. The ghost of Christmas past takes Scrooge to his boyhood. “The school is not quite deserted,” said the Ghost. “A solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still.” Scrooge said he knew it. And he sobbed.
  5. 5. The spirit showed another, more merry Christmas. The party provided by Scrooge’s first employer – Mr Fezziweg who was loved and respected by his staff.
  6. 6. The ghost of Christmas past shows him the girl he might have married but turned down for “Gain”. Years later the girl is seen grown up as a happy mother celebrating with her family. Scrooge is unable to bear any more and slams an “extinguisher cap” on the spirit.
  7. 7. “Come in!” exclaimed the Ghost of Christmas Present. “Come in! and know me better, man!” They see Bob Cratchit’s family at dinner. “Spirit,” said Scrooge, with an interest he had never felt before, “tell me if Tiny Tim will live.” “I see a vacant seat,” replied the Ghost, “in the poor chimney-corner, and a crutch without an owner, carefully preserved. If these shadows remain unaltered by the Future, the child will die.”
  8. 8. The Ghost of Christmas Present brought two children; wretched, abject, frightful, hideous, miserable. This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. “Have they no refuge or resource?” cried Scrooge. “Are there no prisons?” said the Spirit, turning on him for the last time with his own words. “Are there no workhouses?”
  9. 9. “I am in the presence of the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come?” said Scrooge. Scrooge read upon the stone of the neglected grave his own name, EBENEZER SCROOGE
  10. 10. “I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future!” Scrooge repeated, as he scrambled out of bed. “The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. My capital ambition shall be spend, share and be merry with all my fellows.”
