Demonstrators represent most
To the editor:
We are engaged in a morality struggle not greatly unlike that of the Civil War. Today the issue is: shall a few people - a minority class having a vested interest in preserving an obsolete economic system that never again will sustain the well-being of our majority class - prevent that majority from moving to a new system?
Morality won't decide it. Because that minority is willing that the
American majority shall henceforth live in third world poverty rather
than they should give up their collapsed system.
The majority class, that's us, apparently does not yet see it as a
struggle over system change, although they are at last beginning to see
it as class war. The immediate issue to them is jobs. There are no
longer enough jobs. The corporatists caused this by first going to
automation to cut the workforce. Next they shipped their plants
We need a new system. We need our own onshore plants. And the jobs need
to pay enough to live on. In resolving the jobs problem in a humanistic
way they will, without making a lot of ideological noise, create a new
system because this way eliminates much of the profit which was both
the purpose and identifying character of the old system. Best of all,
everyone now has a livelihood and the nation again has social and
economic stability and a tolerate future.
What is the slaver class doing now? For one thing they're busy
destroying democracy so we can't make it happen peaceably. They're
doing this with voter ID, with court rulings permitting corporations to
dump unlimited money into real peoples' political struggles, by busting
what are left of the unions.
You don't suppose this has any connection with those ongoing occupy
demonstrations? Indeed it does. If the demonstrators' aims seem not
quite clear it's because the problems that brought them out are so many
and so huge for unorganized citizens to be readily clear about. But you
can be sure they are about the same matters I have written about here.
If you're not a millionaire, they're demonstrating for you.
