29 October 2013. “Whenever You Have Done This to the Least of These My Brethren, You Have Done It unto Me”

00 Pyramid of the Capitalist System. 1911. IWW


Here’s a distillation of some conversations I had with some Cabineteers…

The Left DOES NOT want to kill people, close all churches, and rule the world. It DOES want to place the “lowest of the low” in a much better place and give the Workin’ Man his FULL due… the fruits of his labour. The aristocrat, the CEO, the idle rich… they do NOT produce anything, let alone wealth! That guy or gal putting in 10 hour days at the understaffed hospital or factory or restaurant… THEY produce the wealth… wealth that speculators (“investors”) and tyrants (idiot bosses) stole from them. Joe Hill was right. Without us, the working class, not a single wheel could turn. By the way, the “managerial class” is mostly a part of the working class… they own no capital; they’re as much “wage slaves” as we are. The oligarchs merely throw them a few more crumbs. If we overturned the oligarchs, we’d still need managers to “manage” the economy… and most of them aren’t bad sorts, at base. They’re not completely in “the man’s” pocket.

In its vehement lust for profit Free Market Crapitalism spawns huge numbers of “cast offs”… human beings it deems “not valuable”. The oligarch’s system spits out the sick, old, disenfranchised (just “who” brought about this disenfranchisement?) and poor… they label us “lazy”, “leeches”, and “entitlement seekers”. Gee… doesn’t all of that apply to the Country Club Set in spades? Their System spawns much wrong. To want to change this is NOT “subversive” or “evil”. It’s a part of the Holy Gospel’s calling! Meditate on Our Lord Christ’s words in the title of this post. Every time that an oligarch throws people out of work to profit himself, he throws Christ out of work. Every time that crooked cops beat up labour organisers at the behest of crooked businessmen, they beat up Christ. You get the picture… and those who do such vileness often dare to call themselves “believers” and make a great show of their religiosity. It’s no wonder that atheism (if not antitheism) looks attractive to many.

Orthodox people should ponder this. All too many “voices” for the Church speak for the Far Right, and not for the majority of the parishioners or for the social justice that Christ Himself blessed. You should oppose Potapov, Paffahausen, Reardon, Mattingly, Rod Dreher, Alexander Webster, and all of their demented followers wherever they pop up. They’re nothing but apologists for a satanic ideology that has no place amongst us. I don’t care how “Pro-Life” you are or how many placards you wave… if you don’t fight for social justice for the living, all of your “Pro-Life” bleats are in vain, and I (and many others) shall oppose you… always and to the limit of my abilities. ‘Nuff said…

27 March 2012. 1912… 2012… The Bosses STILL Hate the Unions and Shot Down Organisers… That’s REALITY in the South of Today


In September 2011, I wrote:

If all wealth comes from the labour of working people, then, why are the fruits of that labour stolen by drones such as Rush Limbaugh, the Koch brothers, Paul Ryan, Scott Walker, and all the other Five Percenters? They do NO labour… yet, they label themselves the only “productive” people in society… I do daresay that there’s something basically WRONG with someone who agrees with that statement. Don’t forget… Our Lord Christ CHOSE to be incarnate in a worker’s home… not the mansion of an oligarch… ye cannot serve both God and Mammon. He said that, not me…

Nothing has changed since then… NOTHING. It’s time to notice “Christians” who are nothing but apologists for the wealthy, and it’s time to oppose them. Otherwise, the country will slide into hardened unbelief, and we’ll have no but ourselves to blame…

23 March 2012. My Personal Credo… I May be Only a Sinful-Ginful Slogger, but I’ll Stand for What’s Right… NOT for What’s Expedient…


St Aleksei Toth blessed the Wobblies… not the Rockefellers. His Holiness blesses churches in Cuba and calls for the end of the pointless and punitive American blockade of the island. However, on the other hand, Jonas Paffhausen blesses the likes of greedy godless scummers such as Darrell Issa, Paul Ryan, Rush Limbaugh, and Rick Santorum… not the ordinary sloggers trying to make ends meet in the Neoliberal hell that contemporary America’s become. One of these things is NOT like the other…
