Returning to the ancestral void

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
Rumi

That 7% is your American Dream, but you gotta share it with the 80%. How many times will you wake up on the wrong side of capitalism before you decide to divorce it?  Happy International Workers’ Day…

Five empty houses per homeless person.
Think about that.

Critics say that the massive global economic meltdown of 2008 was the clearest proof yet that an unfettered capitalist market is bound to come crashing down. Not just bound… “destined”. Supposedly, all it takes is a general market run to bring the whole house of cards crashing down. Couple this with consumers who abuse credit, and you have one hell of a financial avalanche waiting to happen, resting on the precipice of a few giant banks who keep on issuing loans despite taking massive losses.

Why Co-option is Not the Answer

kevinlwriter:

I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again: democrats and republicans are two sides of the same coin. They both represent the powerful and the elite in this country. Any argument to the contrary is simply not true. Why? Because if you look at the way both sides vote and look at the amount of money that lobbyists put into both parties, you will be unable to make any other conclusion, if you are being honest.

Therefore, things like the so-called ‘99% Spring’ is simply an excercise in safe politics, with safe goals, and safe organizing, but the end result can only be failure. We must constantly remind ourselves that change is something that will come through the bottom up and that if we rely on the Democrats, or their activist wing move on, we will simply be used to shore up their political base.

We need to learn from mistakes of the past so we can avoid attrocity in the future.
