white women don’t seem to get that they’re no different than white men when it comes to their whiteness….[futher textual diarrhea mercifully snipped]
These “Social Justice” idiots parody themselves.

I 100% support direct action measures such as giving out food, organising childcare centres/schools, giving help to the disabled, and so on. But this is different to parliamentary reformism and it must be done with ideology at the forefront of our minds.
At the end of the day, the capitalist state will try to violently counteract anything that threatens it, and people who give poor families food while talking with them about Marxism-Leninism is pretty damn threatening. While building support in the working class and giving them a taste what a radical socialist government would do, we should also be preparing to literally fight that capitalist state head-on.
The critical flaw in every revolutionary is the total contempt for the very people they pretend to serve.
The poor don’t want the system destroyed. The poor don’t want an end of capitalism. The poor want to be rich, or what they perceive as “rich” anyway.
Here’s a weird story: My room mate has what I consider a good job. He works for a decent company that by all indications pay above average, and he has personally witnessed people getting fired for some crazy things like repeated dress-code violations. Yes, some people literally can’t dress themselves, or at least not in businesses attire.
The thing is, if I took the average working class person and dropped them dead center in one of Mitt Romney’s country clubs they would stick out like a sore thumb. They wouldn’t be dressed like everybody else, they wouldn’t talk like everyone else — the accents, the vocabulary — and chances are they wouldn’t even know the proper table etiquette. Just eating would give them away, make them look ignorant and crude. For a lot of poor people, a middle class environment is the same for them as the Ritz is for the middle class.
You want to help the poor? Teach them what’s important in life. Teach them how to get jobs. Teach them how to act in jobs. Teach them how to talk. Teach them how to be parents.
I don’t agree that everyone is responsible for their plight, that the poor are at fault for being poor. That’s just an excuse to keep the taxes low for the rich. The poor AS A GROUP can be lead out of their poverty. They can. But it will take effort, it will take money and it will take time. A lot of time. We’re talking at least a generation at a minimum. But it can be done by just giving them the skills that are important, teaching them why they are important.
I know, I know: But nobody has to die and you lose the satisfaction of blaming some middle class (when all the middle class combined don’t have the wealth & power of the richest 5%). But do you want productive change or do you just want to live through some revolutionary fantasy?
