Those two words, when used together, are probably the most explosive in the world today or at least in this country where we are told by the pundits and so-called leaders on the left and the right that there is no such thing as a class war taking place and to assert otherwise is the worst kind of class baiting and conspiracy theorizing possible. It’s just not true. The best way to win any war is to convince the enemy they aren’t in one until it’s too late for them to effectively organize and resist. Since 1971 and the Lewis Powell memo declaration of class war, we the people have been under systematic and systemic attack from a ruthless and organized body of corporate malevolence just as sure as Smedley Butler was asked to lead an army of 500,000 men to overthrow the New Deal in it’s infancy in 1934. And now it worsens every day.
It can’t happen here? It has happened here. And the only question remaining is how long we will live in denial, wishing, HOPING, for CHANGE that will never come from false prophets… flashy ideologues with their mantras of “compromise” which always equates to us giving more and them taking all. How much of our land, how much of our wealth, how much of our local towns and communities will we allow them to siphon off from us because they dared to devastate our economy and our future? How many more must die in service to a mahogany board room and the soulless vultures who dwell within it’s protected and subsidized walls? How long till we join the swelling ranks of rank humanity and declare “no mas”?
The following video from Class War Films touches on these question and many others. It’s time we started using this term, long past time in fact. It’s time we started using this term and understanding it’s meaning. It’s time we get in the fight.
