An undeniably large part of what keeps poverty going is the fact that there are people who think that if they vote with the rich they’ll somehow magically become the rich. The trouble is, rich people don’t vote. They own.
"Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires."
(Quote attributed to John Steinbeck but is under dispute. Regardless, it’s still true.)
oh. so that’d be why they won’t shut up about the “land of opportunity” and the rest of the bootstraps stuff. because it keeps people from realizing that there’s a whole system preventing them from doing exactly that.
A lie told a million times is still a lie. It cannot work forever.
Believe me, socialism will do wonders for you.. just as it did to us here in Venezuela.
Just remember me when there are not anymore rich poeple owning farms, nor poor people owning small farms, or paper plants or any other kind of industry because all of them would have been taken by the government and you have make kilometric lines everyday to buy just the ammount of meat and toilet paper that the new socialist government is willing to provide you, you will eat your words accompanied with a ton of shit.
You, usa people, can’t even imagine the type of shit that socialism is… Study the history of Venezuela and Cuba and please, for your own sake, NEVER trust socialists…
this made me cry, what is wrong with me…
I’m not even a cat person and that story gave me horrible feelings. ;_;
We need more stories about Dexter. Too bad the Red Lanterns really never get positive storylines.
