This.Everyone thinks we’re fucking communist, but majority of us are really really not. I can see why they would think so, if they were misinformed and listening to mainstream media, such as Fox. This does pretty much seem like it’s straight out of Marx’s communist manifesto. The oppression of corporations and government has become apparent to the oppressed majority so we want to fight back. So from an outsiders point of view, you could easily say that we are equivalent to the proletariat tryinna start some revolution to overthrow our oppressors. And Marx even said that capitalism is a prerequisite of communism. To have a successful communist nation, you need to develop technology and technology will only grow fast in a capitalist system. This will cause the majority to be more efficiently oppressed and eventually everyone will realize what’s up and want to change things. So yeah, that part came true, that makes sense, but that’s not what we’re all about.For us to be communists, the destruction of capitalism would have to be a universal interest. We would have to want to abolish private property. Before you can establish communism, everyone has to have that mindset. It’s an ideal theory, I personally don’t think it would be possible. And I wouldn’t want it to be…I like owning things, I’m all for it and I’m sure our materialistic society is with me. Most of it, at least. But anyway, my point. That’s just not what we want. Most of us do want capitalism and democracy, but I think most people would agree with me when I say that that’s not a proper description of our current state. We want to abolish corporate greed. We don’t want economicequality, we want a voice even if we don’t have the money to make it heard. There are a lot of things we want, but that’s really the main thing (to me at least). As a professor at our discussion said today, we know there’s a gap between those who are wealthy and those who are not, but we need to focus on the consequences of that gap to solidify our point.The media has one message for the public, “look at those dirty hippies and anarchists.” And they’re just pointing the camera at the ones who stand out and you’re all looking at them and nodding in agreement. I’ve seen professors and students from pretty much every school in and around Boston, have you? All I’m saying is reconsider your reluctant acceptance of what the media tells you. And join us if you can, it’s probably in your best interest, too.
