Speechless

G+ kept kicking me off when I tried reading this article. Went to RT to retrieve in the end

Class system/caste system/elite system, call it what you will...it is inequality with a smear of glitter laced shit over it

"Article 23 of the Universal Declaration states: "Everyone has the right to work, to just and favorable conditions of work, and to protection against unemployment, with remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, supplemented if necessary by other means of social protection." Furthermore, "everyone has the right to form and join trade unions, for protection of his interests."

To take the last point first, in the US, technically, everyone has the right to join a trade union. But the reality is quite different. In 1992, the International Labor Organization, which rarely has an unkind word for its paymasters, called on the US to conform to international labor standards on "permanent replacement workers," which were then violated only by the US and South Africa in the industrial world. "Permanent replacement workers," otherwise known as scabs, are those brought in to replace sacked unionized workers to break strikes: international labor law condemns the practice, but it is condoned in the US. There was an article in Business Week last week describing some of the consequences of the American state's vicious anti-labor activities. Illegal firings for union organizing have gone up sixfold, it reckoned, in the past 25 years. In particular, thousands of union organizers have been illegally fired since the start of Ronald Reagan's presidency in 1981.

According to the US Labor Department, the destruction of the unions as been the main factor in the decline of real wages that has continued since the Reagan era. Health and safety standards in the workplace have also deteriorated: there are laws, but they're simply not enforced, so the number of industrial accidents has risen sharply in the past ten years. Then there is the effect of the decline of unions on democracy: the unions are one of the few means by which ordinary people can enter the political arena. Finally, there's a psychological effect. The destruction of the unions is part of a much more general effort to privatize aspirations, to eliminate solidarity, the sense that we're all in it together, that we care for one another" -Noam Chomsky


"In cases in which production requires great division of labour, it is necessary to form an ASSOCIATION among the workers... because without that they would remain isolated as subordinates and superiors, and there would ensue two industrial castes of masters and wage workers, which is repugnant in a free and democratic society." -Pierre joseph proudhon

"Nobody talks more of free enterprise and competition and of the best man winning than the man who inherited his father's store or farm"

Forty-four days after David Cameron 'won' an unexpected majority in the general election, the opposition parties are still picking themselves up off the floor. On Britain’s streets, however, tens of thousands of people took up their placards and marched in London, Glasgow and elsewhere in the first major protest against the government’s plans for five more years of austerity.
Between 70,000 and 150,000 estimated to have marched in central London, with demonstrations in Glasgow, Liverpool and Bristol

I'm introspective about my old work life since disability had knocked me out of the game.

It is slavery. I just couldn't see it when I was part of it. All it did was wreck my health more.

Justice follows the money, it's a fallacy

There is no justice. Not for the majority

[There is violence] “where there is an actor that commits the violence” [is]  “personal or direct”,  [whereas violence] “where there is no such actor” [is ]“structural or indirect.”

[In structural violence it is difficult to trace back the cause of the violence to  concrete persons as actors – rather,] “violence is built into the structure and shows up as unequal power and consequently as un-equal life chances” 

[Thus, if the social structure inside and between nations is constituted such that] “some people are permitted to live full,complete, long, creative lives with a highlevel of self realization – whereas others arekilled slowly because of the wrong nutri-tion, protein deficiency, inadequate healthfacilities, deprivation of all kinds of mental stimuli,” [this is quintessential structural violence]


Johan Galtung, (Essays in Peace Research Vol. I, III, IV, Copenhagen: Christian Ejler’sForlag, 1975, 1978, 1980; 113-114, p. 251)

I don't even know what to say. It's going to take a while to scrape my jaw off the floor

Well, now the election is done, I shouldn't be surprised. But F$*KING hell they are cold.

MPs are set to receive a £7,000 pay rise after the body responsible for setting their salaries says it intends to proceed with a 10% increase.
