A Few Words To My Fellow Squatters, Homeless Folk, and Brothers and Sisters in Revolution
In the economy of any nation, of any region, of any place on the globe, there is one creator of wealth: labor. It is the blood, sweat, and tears that make the products of the world. Every bushel of corn, every ton of steel, every article of clothing exists only because the workers offered their labor to create it. And yet, the business owners think it is justice when these workers go so underpaid, that they are forced into homelessness, criminal behavior, malnutrition, and starvation. We have these two facts: (1) forever, in any nation, the workers create all the wealth of the world, (2) in our current system, the system of Capitalism, the workers are paid so low, economists have called it a "subsistence wage." We must change the world. We must make it so that every worker is paid the wealth they create. Businessmen and investors, who add no value to wealth, must not be allowed to exist. An equal obligation to work must exist. No one should be allowed to own the means of production, the farms, the factories. They must be collectively owned by everyone.
If a person is caught shoplifting, they are arrested and may do months in jail. But, if a business owner is caught busting up unions and threatening workers, it will take years of investigation by the government before they reach an inconclusive response. Who made these rules? The government. The leaders. And they are the closest friends of organized villainy, or big business. When they must consider passing legislation that punishes the people and rewards the wealthy, they think about the bribes and campaign contributions they will receive. The media, owned by corporations and the government, broadcasts the message of those who support the system only. Police brutality, crime, and unemployment rise proportionally. All government, be it Communist China or Capitalist America, support a system of economic exploitation of the workers by corporate business interests. The only just decision-making system is that of self-rule: Democracy, one vote for each person on laws, not on representatives. If we are a free people, we do not need someone to represent us; we can represent ourselves!
Knowledge is power. Arm yourself.
