Wage Slave = Slave

The horrors of slavery have been around seemingly forever.

But are the wage slaves of Mexico,Central and South America

and through most of Asia much better off than the historical

slaves we think of as being depicted in “12 Years a Slave”?

Well, for all the horrors of being a hard-working farmer

who can barely feed his family, now the Chinese farmers who were lured into

what seemed like big money,20 years ago and more,are now finding themselves in debt

as they did not have any idea what it cost to live in a city.

The wage slave must pay taxes,sometimes even on food. The wage slave takes a bus

to work,or walks or rides a bike. And wage slaves we could become right here yet.

The value of labor has been lowered via GATT 2 and many other free trade agreements.

Tax Laws,junk like Citizens United, and other insanely biased-toward-the-rich policies have allowed many corporations to get a tax free ride,or get government sponsorship of things like oil exploration, as if Exxon was going to quit looking for oil!

The 2016 election will be more of the same. A so-called lefty, though Hillary is not  by a long shot anti-war nor pro environment, but good on education, I guess.

I hope the USA hasn’t turned into pockets of race riots by then, but maybe the idiots who run this joint will

sand up and notice that things suck in the middle of neighborhoods where not a lot goes on in the positive realm. Now is the time to keep it positive, but if it can’t be done, the worst may be yet to come.

Whatever happened to those FEMA holding camps/jails?



One thought on “Wage Slave = Slave

  1. Race riots & other conflict are a given during the long hot summers before the election. It’s a matter of grave concern for my community, so it looks like we’ll start early.
