I don't advocate revolution, and I don't think it's inevitable that revolution will happen. I think that Karl Marx was a brilliant man, and I think that we are seeing a nation of haves and have-nots. But Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto before mass media was created to advertise away all of our complaints. The American people are now too complacent.
I believe that there can be a peaceful solution that will allow the working class to exist and allow the wealthy class to live comfortably. I just don't know how it's going to come about, to be honest. I know this is an unpopular thing to say, but I think a large part of it is uniting socialist parties into one strong socialist party here, with the sole issue being improving quality of life for the poor and working class.
Both parties constantly parrot about how government doesn't create jobs, but, you know what? Maybe it should. The infrastructure in this nation is absolutely awful. Why can't we create some WPAs to get things going? Why are prisoners fixing our roads instead? Rehabilitate the prisoner, give the working class man a job. Cut the corporatism out of our government and you might have something worth saving.
Also, can we look into green energy in a real way? We've got a climate crisis on our hands, and we're just not even looking at it. And those new jobs in green energy are going to need butts to fill them. It's expensive to build these jobs, but probably a little less expensive than throwing ourselves into war after war after war.
Lastly, in closing, thank you to any veterans or current members of the armed forces that serve so that I might be a coward and stay here where I'm mostly safe, and free to discuss armchair politics. I salute you with great respect.
