Capitalism and the state: a committed relationship. That is, committed to keeping classist, racist, sexist power structures intact and oppressing gender and sexual minorities. Their tools: poverty and myths about social mobility, victim blaming, evictions, concentrated wealth, police brutality against people of color, reinforcement and perpetuation of binary constrictive gender roles, and the rocky and unnavigable waters of a system put in place to protect the private property of the few rather than the lives, health, and freedom of the rest of us.
Anticapitalists and the people: a committed relationship. That is, committed to actual tangible liberation for those who have been calling for it for too long. Our tools: Our voices, our solidarity, our fists, our love of freedom, and our hatred of hierarchical authority. We’re united in the radical idea that humans are capable of being excellent to each other.
There is a universe of possibilities if we can reach out to them. Systemic injustices aren’t going to go away if you ignore them. We can tear down complacency with our voices and help raise visibility to ideas that are bubbling just below the surface. Capitalism has had direct unnatural influence on us for too long and that is our common struggle.
