The mega-corporations who just looted our country of 6 trillion in free money from OUR government while consolidating their monopoly power to destroy millions of small businesses under the cover and the excuse of the Coronavirus pandemic are the REAL ECONOMIC TERRORIST. I’m sorry, but if you can’t figure out that these same economic terrorists (and the corporate ‘news’ media companies they own) are now actively exploiting the tragedy of systemic racism and public lynching of George Floyd to take the attention off of the fact that this two faced One-Party economic terrorist group called the Democratic & Republican party just looted and raped our entire nation — which is about send us into a decades long depression, greater than the Great Depression — then you’ve become corporate zombie and the virus eaten away your brain.
When you’ve lost your job, running out of $$$ and your life savings are dwindling to the red,. When your behind on you’re rent or mortgage, struggling to pay all your household bills. When you’re collecting the loose change to go to the grocery store to buy food for your family or gas for your car. Ect….. you know its time to stop paying your taxes. Whats the point? Why? Because our politicians haven’t been working for us and they seem to becoming more wealth along w/ their corporate friends and raping we the minions of what little we have left.
when I was in the Marines we got a new supply office built in our warehouse. ALL of the furniture came from the FPI – Federal Prisons Industry – also known as UNICOR. Every box said “Federal Prisons Industries” like they were a fucking walmart… that was my first inkling as an 18 year old that the government might not be as altruistic as I once thought.
Its so crazy, the corporations and the elite are set up in a way that drive the destruction of society. You think you could just be happy being slightly less of a billionaire. There’s no contentment; there’s no sharing, they see no benefit in having the general population having a decent life. Just an endless drive towards the collection of wealth at any cost for seemingly no tangible reason. Most of the nation has bought into it. Humanity has long since left the building.
“Conservatives say if you don’t give the rich more money, they will lose their incentive to invest. As for the poor, they tell us they’ve lost all incentive because we’ve given them too much money.” ― George Carlin
Jon A It’s weird to me that neoliberals started this messaging about inter-sectionalism that was all about every oppressed class based on race, gender, sexual orientation, disability etc. but not socioeconomic class (which heavily intersects with all the others). And then used it as a cudgel to shut down any discussion of income inequality as a distraction from other forms of discrimination. Let’s not adopt their framing: it’s about race AND class. Philando Castile, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner and so many other victims of racial violence were also facing the ordinary injustices of all working people. Police target black people in part as a source of revenue, as they did with Garner multiple times before they killed him. Politicians who, as Malcolm X said, mouth pretty words about racial justice without doing anything about economic injustice (or police brutality, private prisons, civil asset forfeiture etc.) don’t believe a word they say. Remember that imperialists and plantation owners all used divide and conquer tactics to keep their power
