Another Martin Luther King Jr. Day has passed. Let us remember what he was working for. At that moment in Memphis [when he died], it was worker’s rights. Here we are in 2008 and no matter what you might think of your employer, you still have nothing in terms of security. … The scheming and destructive means of progress are more blatant today than ever.
This is a government that has continued to lie to us … and has failed miserably at moving us forward. They use fear and paranoia to trick the masses. … They are incapable of the truth. I truly wonder if this nation, meaning the people, really cares about getting it back for us.
The entire structure of politics in modern America has been teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, total dependence on foreign investors and a supposed revolution that is much like a fairy tale you tell your doomed children to help them go to sleep at night. The arrogant and blatant corruption overshadows their empty and lifeless speech. …
America has a long road ahead of itself: from the lying government that fails to really lead, down to the lying employers who are only out for making themselves richer on our, the people’s, blood, sweat and hard work, because we must survive—for as long as this Earth will allow us to keep moving on. In remembering Dr. King with all due respect and peace, I want to remind everyone that he was fighting for a day that has still not been achieved.
For those of you who think you understood him and his messages—so many, vast and broad sweeping over all boundaries of religion and race: Educate yourself to the greed-mongering slave drivers. Hang your heads in shame. You will never know what it is to stand for anything. You are beef cattle waiting for the slaughter.
Never underestimate the power of the working class! Viva la revolution.
