All these liberal outlets desperately trying to turn Clinton into some kind of benevolent savior who does no wrong. It’s like, dude, stop it. Stop it right now. We were on a roll with this whole “let’s question the foundations of this corrupt capitalist electoral system” thing, but the liberals keep undoing the progress. Sure, vote for her to prevent Trump from getting his misogynistic fascist ass into the seat of head imperialist, but stop kissing ass and stop reconciling all the anger people feel towards the system. Once Hillary gets into the White House we’re gonna see just as much neoliberalism and just as much imperialism as per usual – that means we should stop listening to a bunch of liberal elites pontificating to us about how accommodating and progressive the system is, and start organizing from the bottom-up to overhaul this capitalist bullshit.
The bourgeois political apparatus wants people to “get out the vote”, is SUPER EXCITED about you voting, because it gives people the illusion that they have the power.
We don’t have the power in this system, though. Power rests in the hands of those who control the economy and the resources: the capitalists. You can’t expect a system that runs on class divisions in the most important aspect of social reproduction to be sufficiently democratic. Our working lives aren’t democratic – our working lives that reproduce society daily – so why should the political apparatus that maintains the working day be genuinely democratic??
I still recommend voting as a means to use what little bullshit power they present you with, but just realize that qualitative changes won’t happen until people start organizing outside the Democrats and outside the electoral system more broadly. Everyone in power has accepted that capitalism is the “end of history” and understands politics as merely managing economic crises when they happen, not as a means for people to proactively meet their needs and hold real political power.
We need a labor/socialist party ASAP. Pour class conscious sentiment into it and focus it primarily around grassroots activism and labor organization. A concentrated attack over the last several decades from the establishment has decimated the left’s popularity, but recent capitalist crisis and growing class consciousness is reversing the tides. For that reason, now, we need to take advantage and build a party for the working class and eventual socialism. Reforms are good, as they’ll show people what’s possible and what their mobilization yields, but eventually we need to accept that a social revolution will be necessary to fully unravel capitalism and replace it with a genuine people’s democracy.
Now is the time. Propagate, organize, agitate, revolutionize.
Donald Trump opposes government spending on space exploration… I think that’s a good enough reason to not vote for him. I mean he’s a war mongering bigot just like Admiral Marcus, but at least he liked the stars at some point…
