"You Can't Keep Pushing the Poor, or They Will Push Back!"
Chad P. Morrison, Tuesday, April 1, 2014
I recently heard a friend, and standing member of the Airborne Nation, say that the rich should remember the French Revolution. I have had many people come up to me on the street and say similar things the past few years. I have to say, yes. "I hear the people sing, singing the song of angry men...," and "we will not be slaves again." The global economic system is based on an illusion that nature itself cannot and will not sustain. Prepare yourselves people. The slow march towards change is starting to become a slow jog, and before you know it, we will be at a sprint. Protests are picking up around the nation. Just consider the recent event in New Mexico. A police shooting protest turned violent when the cops got aggressive.
"Supplemental" - Kent Allen Halliburton, Wednesday, August 24, 2016
The sentiment here is sincere. Chad is strongly interested in the needs and welfare of the working class, or as they are coming to be called now, the working poor. What is being done is not fair. How can one be expected to escape poverty when the majority of all of the wealth in this entire country is concentrated in the hands of just under fifteen families? They can't. Further, when a person is left with nothing because one percent of this nation's population owns ninety percent of its wealth, and they have to provide for their family, what else are they to do, just allow their children to starve? Many people turn to crime to survive, which causes conflicts with the police, and then backlash with the community. This creates more conflict, and eventually, the innocent become victims. Why did Alton Stirling have to die? It is very simple. He is a member of a poor oppressed minority that the ruling class means to subjugate. He was made an example of for the rest of the African American community. His death has added more fuel to the Black Lives Matter movement, though. If police shootings of unarmed African Americans continue, the protesters may begin to get physical. In Chad's sentiment, if you push hard enough, you eventually get pushback. That may be just exactly what is needed.....
