Compassion vs Self-Interest
The indifference to the plight of others and the cult of self-interest is what the corporate state seeks to instill in us. The state appeals to pleasure as well as fear to crush compassion. But as long as we wage slaves defy those forces we will remain alive to fight for our rights that belong to us. We must fight to retain what we have and what we deserve, and for now this is the only possible way to victory. Remember we must have compassion for all workers worldwide, but we here at home should be setting the standard for how we treat our fellow workers. Even if you have a good job or are retired, don’t think you are safe. Things change and we must be involved and looking into the future. Remember the best defense is a good offense, but empathy must be our primary attribute. If we don’t keep this in mind we could descend into tyranny, which, I think, some would like to see. Tyranny could lead to a revolution and the end to the capacity for human solidarity. What we want is just a rebellion for our rights.
