We Are the Change
We Have Nots wage slaves of the world must make changes ourselves. Hannibal said we will either find a way or make one. We can start by asking why, who and how. Asking these questions is the start of change. Some say it’s no coincidence that the question mark is an inverted plow, breaking up the hard soil of old believes and preparing for the new growth. Workers must have a plan for the working people that are for the good of the people. Remember when you start the war between the 1-2 percent and the 98-99 percent; the 99 percent need a starting point and a stopping point. How the war will be waged hopefully without destroying what we are fighting for. In President Lincoln’s First Inaugural, he said, “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government they can exercise their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it. The people who should take heed of the options of the masses and not keep taking away the peaceful options of the masses.” Like the U.S. Supreme Court voting against all labor cases, which comes before them, and state governments destroying labor unions. These types of actions are fast pushing the Have Nots to less and less options. The oligarchies should take a look at the Art of War on this strategy and how it can back fire on them. The people need to wake up the fact that the oligarchies are pitting poor against poor while they, the oligarchies fill their pockets. We must remember the war is just about money and power. It all goes back to money and all players want a full house before playing their hands. The odds are you will never start if you don’t take a chance. It is called gambling. All you can do is educate yourself, plan, know yourself, and know your enemy, as outlined in Art of War. Also, be willing to fight for a better life like that $15 to $18 an hour minimum wage could bring. You must be willing to fight for a free education, single-payer healthcare, a safe working environment and pensions. It is worth it. Remember, power has always derived from two main sources, money and people lacking money. The Have Nots must build power from their own flesh and blood.
