If you feel the title and the image above are too extreme, you need to wake up to what's really going on in the world instead of what you've allowed yourself to believe is going on. We must awaken citizens worldwide to the fact that capitalists, pursuing what they consider normal business practices such as nuclear energy, are murdering workers in increasing numbers.
We must replace capitalism with commonwealth! Our very lives depend on it!
"A new study finds that radioactive Iodine from Fukushima has caused a significant increase in hypothyroidism among babies in California, 5,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean."
I use the word "murder" in this essay--instead of the word "kill"--because capitalists are fully aware that they're continually causing the death of workers worldwide--and do so deliberately and with premeditation. These capitalist murders are "sanitized" by bought-and-paid-for press and political-economic stooges to make their murder of workers appear inadvertent and unintended. So it's necessary to expose these crimes for what they are: capitalists deliberately and consciously murdering workers!
Capitalists are so oblivious to their lethal attitudes and actions resulting in the murder of workers that they celebrate their outrages in TV programs and movies. One of the starkest depictions of capitalists murdering a worker is the movie Waterloo Bridge. This seeming "love story" is actually a stark narration of how the capitalist class in general and in particular a wealthy, spoiled, egomaniacal young man and his dowager mother murdered a naive, brainwashed working class young woman.
How Did We Get Here?
An international capitalist cabal seized political and economic control in the United States and throughout the world in the first two decades of the twentieth century. The best way to awaken to their crimes against humanity is to thoughtfully examine and reflect on the facts and images revealing their continuing atrocities.
If we're going to survive, we MUST AWAKEN to what murderous tactics the capitalist cabal is using to exterminate workers worldwide. The reason this essay is presenting ideas and images in such stark terms is that most workers worldwide are allowing themselves to remain oblivious to their extermination at the hands of capitalist rulers. Our present situation is similar to Nazi Germany's situation during world war II, when millions of people the Nazis branded as "undesirable" were seized and taken to extermination camps.
If workers worldwide don't wake up to what capitalists are doing to them, they very likely will end up like the victims of the Nazi extermination camps in world war II.
Already, workers are suffering from the new murderous capitalist tactics of "Austerity," militaristic imperialism, and capitalist genocide.
In America, every 2 minutes a baby is born into poverty
Every 15 minutes a baby is born to a mother who received late or no prenatal care
Every 7 minutes a baby is born at low birth weight
One out of every 4 American veterans is now homeless
Twenty-two thousand Americans will die needlessly this year because of private, over-expensive, capitalist healthcare insurance companies
50 million Americans now live below the poverty line. Of the 144 million people who worked full- or part-time year-round in 2011, 9.4 percent of these workers--an estimated 13.6 million people--were living in poverty according to the official poverty threshold (which is absurdly low and dramatically underestimates the real number).
Part of the difficulty is that most workers are allowing themselves to fall for what the capitalist media (TV, newspapers, journals, Internet sites, books) tell them is going on. If workers are to survive, they must decondition themselves from capitalist propaganda lies.
"It is important that those of us in the 99% under-class realize we're under systematic attack. And it's important that we realize that the core principle of modern warfare is full-spectrum dominance: pro-active control over every domain of engagement. We need to be aware of the many ways in which we're being attacked.
"We've seen the principle of full-spectrum dominance in Iraq for example, where first the air-defenses are taken out, then the communications infrastructure, then transport, and so on, each domain of engagement being dominated in its turn. In such military engagements, domestic public opinion is also a domain of engagement, and dominance there has been pursued via embedded journalism, media propaganda, and lies by officials.
"In the regime-change project--the class war--there are many domains of engagement over which dominance must be achieved and maintained."
"Food assistance benefits for over 45 million Americans will be slashed starting this Friday, in the first-ever nationwide reduction in benefits under the US government's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), popularly known as food stamps. The cuts total $11 billion over the next three years and amount on average to a month's worth of food assistance. They will mean yet more privation [and death]for millions of working people, including the poorest and most vulnerable members of society--children, elderly people, the unemployed, the disabled and new mothers."
It's first necessary for you as a worker--a member of the global worker class--to wake up to the fact that you're in a global Class War in which capitalists are continually murdering people just like you and other members of the worker class. This must be a definite physical sensation and an unequivocal conviction, not merely an intellectual theory or hypothesis. Once you unmistakably feel the threat of imminent destruction, you then must:
Attain a realization of the difference between the World of Delusion and the World of Truth
Make a reasoned decision to center your life and activities in the World of Truth
Gain a sense of identity as a member of the working class operating within the World of Truth
Realize the necessity of joining in solidarity with others in the worker class within the World of Truth
Though the capitalist cabal has devolved into a stupendously powerful force for evil that gives the appearance of being invincible, we must realize that earlier victories have been achieved and that ultimately this demonic monstrosity will be defeated and a cooperative commonwealth political-economic system will be realized.
The centuries-long struggle of workers against the murderous oppression of capitalism has resulted in some momentous achievements:
The American Declaration of Independence
The Preamble to the Constitution
The Bill of Rights that the common people forced on the capitalist class
The women's rights movement resulting in the right to vote and more equitable treatment in the workplace
The civil rights struggle resulting in civil rights legislation
Vietnam war resistance
The growing force of Internet-based news and analysis sources that are exposing the onslaughts of the capitalist cabal against workers
In the epic battle of workers against capitalist despotism, a few heroic leaders have arisen to guide our struggle and provide inspiration and wise counsel:
Henry George Seldes (1890-1987: Seldes pursued a genuine progressive path in his work as a war correspondent during World Wars I and II. In 1922, he interviewed Vladimir Lenin and, in 1923, was expelled from the Soviet Union. After reporting from Italy, he again was expelled for reporting news which Mussolini wanted suppressed.In 1929, Seldes became a freelance reporter and author, subsequently writing a series of books and criticisms about his years as a foreign correspondent, and the issues of censorship, suppression and distortion in the press. During the late 1930s he had one more stint as a foreign correspondent, along with his wife Helen, in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. Seldes influenced many younger journalists, receiving an award for professional excellence from the Association for Education in Journalism in 1980, and a George Polk Award for his life's work in 1981. Seldes also served on the board of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR).
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948): political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945): political and philosophical leader of the United States during the Capitalist Depression and World War II
Upton Sinclair, Jr.(1878-1968): Pulitzer Prize-winning American author who wrote over 90 books, acquiring particular fame for his 1906 muckraking novel The Jungle. It exposed conditions in the U.S. meat packing industry, causing a public uproar that contributed in part to the passage a few months later of the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act and the Meat Inspection Act. He ran unsuccessfully for Governor of California.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy: 35th president of the United States; he was assassinated by the capitalist cabal:
Because he was restructuring the CIA so it could no longer be used by
the ruling powers ("the capitalist cabal") to carry out foreign and domestic terrorism
Because the international capitalist cabal, which has ruled the U.S. since at least 1913, wanted to regain its total stranglehold on the country
Ralph Nader: (1934-)American attorney, author, lecturer, political activist, and four-time candidate for President of the United States, having run as a Green Party candidate in 1996 and 2000, and as an independent candidate in 2004 and 2008. Nader has provided strong leadership in the fields of consumer protection, healthcare, and electoral safeguards.
continues to fight for the working class. At present, he is protecting Social Security from the depredations of both Democrats and Republicans through his Democracy For America initiative.
As the capitalist cabal's stranglehold on US political and economic systems has increased, it has instituted means whereby a progressive leader has little if any chance to gain wide popular support. For example, both presidential candidates are selected by the cabal, assuring that no recurrence of the JFK fiasco (an elected president suddenly revealing progressive tendencies) recurs. Both candidates are cabal puppets and do whatever they're told. US elections are totally controlled by the capitalist cabal, so no third-party candidate is allowed into the presidential debates. In some states it is almost impossible for third-party candidates to appear on the ballot. All mainstream media--TV, radio, movies, newspapers, music--are owned and operated by cabal capitalists. The likelihood of a progressive leader being heard by a wide audience is practically nil.
"We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true. But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We're all you know. You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning here. You're beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube. You eat like the tube. You even think like the tube. In God's name, you people are the real thing, WE are the illusion."
Howard Beale, TV Commentator in the movie Network
We must wake up to the fact that the demonic capitalist cabal ruling the world is now murdering workers worldwide. Unlike freedom fighters during the second world war who were able to escape to America, we have no country in which to seek asylum--because the cabal has seized power in almost every country throughout the world. Only if enough people awaken to their plight and join with others in defeating this evil force will we survive.
