Forum Post: What Does Organize - Unite - Resist mean to me

Posted 1 year ago on Nov. 11, 2016, 2:11 p.m. EST by stoothman (18) from Des Moines, IA
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Organize

Greed, envy, fear, hate, the competition has to stop When you see someone down, now's the time to pick them up Set our differences aside and never look back, again Right now if you don't know the person standing next to you Turn to them extend your hand, shake their hand, make a new friend This is our family, this is our community! - 911 for peace – Anti-Flag

There was a beautiful rally last night to resist the coming storm. Unfortunately, I found out about it too late to participate. But in the spirit of these lyrics, I reached out to the organizer and made a new friend and ally. We all need to do more of this. The more of us there are, the harder it will be to break us. We must commit to reaching out to our community, to social networks, to neighbors.

For far too long ordinary people have felt excluded from power. We must reach out to them and show them the power that they have. If this election showed anything, it is that people are desperate. We can change that. As activists, we must help them learn to try out their voice. We pick everyone up and march forward together out of the darkness and into the new dawn.

Unite

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. – American Crisis – Thomas Paine

For far too long the American Left has suffered from a rotting disease I call balkanization. Blinded by an unwavering ideological purity, groups dismiss any one else that does not believe exactly like they. It leads to groups not coordinating and working together. And since they do not work together, none ever achieve a critical mass necessary to affect real and lasting change.

Now is a time of crisis and the world has changed seemly overnight. No longer can we allow ourselves to be divided by our own short sightedness. We can no longer allow our differences to keep us apart. The atheist and religious person must stand arm in arm. The union worker and the LGBT rights activist must raise their voices together. The "Black Lives Matter" activist and the gender equality activist must march together. The anarchist and the political party activist must resist together. Only together will we make real change and ensure something like Trump never happens again. And from this darkest of times, we can bring a new dawn.

Resist

We are committed to the proposition that principles of morality and considerations for our own security will never permit us to acquiesce in a peace dictated by aggressors and sponsored by appeasers. We know that enduring peace cannot be bought at the cost of other people's freedom. - State of the Union Address (January 6, 1941) - Franklin D. Roosevelt

The new American Crisis presents a unique challenge and an unprecedented opportunity for those who believe in peace, justice, and equality. For 50 years, the playbook of the American Left revolved around direct action, like protests and rallies. And in the meantime, we have largely abdicated our direct role in politics. But that can no longer be the case. We must resist on every front, from the streets to the union hall to the political party meeting to the halls of power. We must be as vigorous in finding candidates for office that reflect our values, as we are in organizing our resistance in the streets.

Make no mistake, these dark times call for total "political warfare". It is only by organizing and uniting and taking back the levers of power from the corporations and their political puppets, that we can affect long lasting change in this country. And while we fight them in politics, we must resist them in the streets with rallies and direct actions. We must make sure the people most vulnerable to the new regime are protected by us as we stand together shielding them with hearts, minds, and bodies. We will beat back the darkness and emerge victorious in a new dawn.

What are you really rallyling against?

Who do you think are organizing these protests?

Did you ever think it might be the evil oligarchy who was ready to start war with Russia; start world war III, who have been making wars in the MiddleEast, who have been ruining the economy of the world for all regular people, whose plans for world domination have just been shattered by a simple flim flam man.

Are you so agianst that flim flam man who just took the world away from utter destruction? ...just 'cause he said some things that were misconstrued and twisted by a malicious media?

What are you rallying for? Are you going to rally for the evil oligarchy who did not get their Hag into the White House and is now pissed thus knowing not what else to do is ready to trash America like they trashed the Middle East?

These rallies are a set up! Watch for the false flag, and then the crud will really start to fly; that is if people don't start seeing through this bull smoke being conjured up by the 1% psycho' oligarchs.

Come on. Think a little bit. please.

Very nice post. Thanks, Stoothman.

We must join together with everyone and anyone that is willing to fight against racism, sexism, xenophobia, misogyny, economic tyranny, corporatism, neoliberalism, etc., the list goes on.

We absolutely must face all of these things wherever and whenever we encounter them. Don't be shy to say "I'm a democratic socialist." "I'm an atheist." "I believe in gay rights." "I think black lives matter." "I believe we need a basic income to meet up with the new realities of globalism and technology." "I'm for universal healthcare and free education." "I believe workers rights should be restored."

We need to get in the faces of those who want to erode our rights. Period.

Do not shy away from those who will ridicule you. Face them. Be ready for them.

Pandora's box of ugly hatred has been unleashed on America. Let's make the most of it. We now have middle school children chanting. "White Power. White Power." Maybe we can finally fight the devil if it is right there in front of us. Never give up! Solidarity!

Truth. Trump is just a symptom of a much bigger problem. NEOLIBERALISM and it's good friend, CAPITALISM. They must go down together.

"Neoliberalism, The Zombie Doctrine at the Root of all our Problems"

http://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/04/15/neoliberalism-zombie-doctrine-root-all-our-problems

"Perhaps the most dangerous impact of neoliberalism is not the economic crises it has caused, but the political crisis. As the domain of the state is reduced, our ability to change the course of our lives through voting also contracts. Instead, neoliberal theory asserts, people can exercise choice through spending. But some have more to spend than others: in the great consumer or shareholder democracy, votes are not equally distributed. The result is a disempowerment of the poor and middle. As parties of the right and former left adopt similar neoliberal policies, disempowerment turns to disenfranchisement. Large numbers of people have been shed from politics."

Hence, the importance of Kshama Sawant's response to Trump's speech and to the real root of the problem, the capitalism that is embedded in neoliberalism.

UK Election - Vote Labour - Monbiot piece

"If ever there was a time to vote Labour, it is now" by George Monbiot

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/25/vote-labour-jeremy-corbyn-theresa-may

"The choice today is between brutal efficiency in pursuit of a disastrous agenda, and gentle inefficiency in pursuit of a better world. I know which I favour."

"The choice before us is as follows: a party that, through strong leadership and iron discipline, allows three million children to go hungry while hedge fund bosses stash their money in the Caribbean and a party that hopes, however untidily, to make this a kinder, more equal, more inclusive nation. I will vote Labour on 8 June, and I will not hold my nose. I urge you to do the same."

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/sep/09/george-monbiot-how-de-we-get-out-of-this-mess

This article brought tears to my eyes, because it gave me hope.....

"Those who want a kinder politics know we have, in theory at least, the numbers on our side. Most people are socially minded, empathetic and altruistic. Most people would prefer to live in a world in which everyone is treated with respect and decency, and in which we do not squander either our own lives or the natural gifts on which we and the rest of the living world depend. But a small handful, using lies and distractions and confusion, stifle this latent desire for change.

We know that if we can mobilise such silent majorities, there is nothing this small minority can do to stop us. But because we have failed to understand what is possible, and above all failed to replace our tired political stories with a compelling narrative of transformation and restoration, we have failed to realise this potential. As we rekindle our imagination, we discover our power to act. And that is the point at which we become unstoppable.

Jeremy Corbyn. Some recent tweets that I thought were very profound:

"We must end impunity for corporations that violate human rights or wreck our environment. The next Labour government will work to create a legally binding treaty to regulate global corporations, their subsidiaries and suppliers under international human rights law."

"We must tackle the growing concentration of unaccountable wealth and power in the hands of a tiny corporate elite, climate change and the refugee crisis, and end the “bomb first, think later” approach to conflict resolution."

"Today, at the United Nations in Geneva, I outlined how, together, we can build a social and economic system with human rights and justice at its core, and work for peace, security and understanding."

That is the kind of leader the world needs right now.

Jeremy Corbyn is indeed ''the kind of leader the world needs right now.'' In 2022 he'll become UK's PM! I hope that he'll influence that other ''Bernard'' - Sanders, into realizing that US Dems are NOT like the UK Labour Party,ie. with mass popular support & with a good degree of internal democracy!

Austerity kills.

https://www.salon.com/2015/08/09/austerity_kills_the_sad_sick_truth_about_right_wing_economics_body_count/

“Today many people face the stark reality of severe financial pressures – be it through employment worries, benefit cuts, increased cost of living, or a lethal combination of all three.”

"If austerity were tested like a medication in a clinical trial, it would have been stopped long ago, given its deadly side effects.... One need not be an economic ideologue – we certainly aren’t – to recognize that the price of austerity can be calculated in human lives."

And, "How Austerity Kills":

https://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/13/opinion/how-austerity-kills.html

"The correlation between unemployment and suicide has been observed since the 19th century. People looking for work are about twice as likely to end their lives as those who have jobs."

"Countries that slashed health and social protection budgets, like Greece, Italy and Spain, have seen starkly worse health outcomes than nations like Germany, Iceland and Sweden, which maintained their social safety nets and opted for stimulus over austerity."

In the "United States. Initially, the 2009 stimulus package shored up the safety net. But there are warning signs — beyond the higher suicide rate — that health trends are worsening. Prescriptions for antidepressants have soared. Three-quarters of a million people (particularly out-of-work young men) have turned to binge drinking. Over five million Americans lost access to health care in the recession because they lost their jobs (and either could not afford to extend their insurance under the Cobra law or exhausted their eligibility). Preventive medical visits dropped as people delayed medical care and ended up in emergency rooms."

Austerity needs to end all over the world. It's a scourge on humanity, especially since those who dole it out to others do not live under it themselves.

"Misleading Unemployment Numbers and the Neoliberal Ruse of “Labor Flexibility”

https://truthout.org/articles/misleading-unemployment-numbers-and-the-neoliberal-ruse-of-labor-flexibility/

I've been feeling this is what is going on for quite a while and perhaps it's even worse now.

In addition, wages are eroding due to increasing inflation making the crappy low paying jobs even crappier and lower paying!

Even if Unemployment was actually as low as they say, what good is it if crappy jobs rule the day?

From the article: "The falling wages promise to exacerbate historic levels of U.S. inequality. "

When even the Washington Post is concerned you know the problem is bigger than the establishment is letting on.

Lower wages means people have less disposable income to buy stuff. Yes, Americans live on debt to make up for that lack of cash, but how long can that continue? It's an unsustainable and cruel model.

''House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez talks to Glenn Greenwald about the need for Democratic Party reform, her views on immigration and criminal justice reform, her approach to “identity politics,” why she has taken such unusually blunt positions on Israel and Palestine, and the challenges of running against a machine boss politician.

''Her Democratic opponent, Rep. Joseph Crowley, has been in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1999. It has been 14 years since Crowley has faced a primary challenge, thus receiving the Democratic Party nomination automatically every two years since 2004.

''Crowley has become the classic New York machine boss, having obtained both his 1990s seat on the New York City Council and his seat in Congress through a combination of dynastic politics and machine favors. But for the people of the 14th Congressional District that Crowley represents — which covers parts of Queens and the Bronx and is 70 percent nonwhite — it means they have had no Democratic Party alternative in this Democratic safe district for more than a decade.

''All of that changed this year as a result of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose primary challenge against Crowley has sparked substantial excitement within her district and, then, media attention throughout the country.

''Can a 28-year-old Democratic Socialist pull of one of the rarest feats in U.S. politics: beating an entrenched incumbent in a Democratic Party primary?'' ... YES SHE CAN & SHE DID!

TY for your link & as U say .. ''Lower wages means people have less disposable income to buy stuff. Yes, Americans live on debt to make up for that lack of cash, but how long can that continue?

See, here comes the justification for why the trillions of dollars of taxcut had to be pushed through to enrich the rich folks before the Medicare/Social Security shit hits the turbofans of trumpery. Mitt Romney would have foreseen the potential consequences and be less reckless. ( This probably riles up people here but even vultures a.k.a. hedge funds play a role in the ecosystem { if China had declassified its data on its Great Famine earlier--but China had no First Amendment of ours nor our Freedom of Information Act, perhaps Zimbabwe/Rhodesia could have avoided the disaster resulting from the heavy-handed economic/ecosystemic interference }; I'm hoping for a pootinium vacuum cleaner for the Levant; let's face it, Russia and China hacked the U.S. successfully--as we in the U.S. have the most poultry in the World, unlike France, which was resistant to the hacking; most people here can probably afford chicken at every meal; although my Dad fulfilled his promise to provide food in the form of chickens galore, I'd long grown wary of making any simpleminded extreme wish akin to that of King Midas come true--so we must pay the price to make one dream come true ) It's much easier to tear things down than to do surgeries or build. Babies do that very well. Geoduck was less destructive than beany Baby by letting things slip to destruction slowly through timidity and neglect.

The Retards even had the foresight to put in the automatic expiration of the measly taxcut for the working folks despite the permanent taxcuts for the leisure class!

Yeah, I told y'all so, didn't I? Austerity is coming. I smell turkey, roasted turkey, Benjamin Franklin's favorite "All-American!" birds. Don't worry because the opposition party hasn't been voted in yet to take the blame from the myopians. Breathe away, if only for today. Tailhook scandal is deferred to another day.

Strictly speaking according to the definition of trust funds, the budget deficits will not affect the solvency of Medicare/Social Security. However, they surely will because Medicare/Social Security revenues are invested in U.S. Government securities so how hard-pressed by budget deficits the U.S. Government is affects its ability to pay Medicare/Social Security benefits.

In the olden days, the Government didn't even have printed versions of U.S. Government securities owned by the Social Security trust fund. It was understood to be rather pointless to do that. The trust fund's revenue has already been spent to cover general revenue shortfall. Printing fancy pieces of high-quality paper was just an accounting gimmick.

My young kid figured out how we got colorful pieces of paper by filling in a bank withdrawal slip with some characters and numbers and we exchanged them for goodies. Then our kid took a bank withdrawal slip home, filled it in with astronomical numbers and what appeared to be "Greek? alphabetic chicken scratch," and handed it to us to get goodies. We were very impressed by our kid's smartness and dumbness at the same time!

How many hard working members of the community are you extracting profits from to build your wealth? Your business could not exist without a community to do the work but you want us to have no say in what you take from us. American conservatism was born in the ante bellum South. The freedom to exploit people may be a subtle form of slavery but it is abomination non the less!

Why should you have a say in my business? How are you qualified. The people that I employee are free to go work for someone else or start their own business. Why don't you start a business or why don't they?

The minute you determine you need another human being to work for you that is a social contract and everyone in society has a "say" if you can really do it on your own, ie NO employees then i don't care what you do. You might ask "What gives society the right?" Money does. Money has no value unless WE agree that it does, by doing that WE take on a responsibility and a right,. if you are going to use something created by society, ie money, to control the behavior of others then we have a responsibility that the thing we created, ie money, is used responsibility.

[-] -2 points by BrentWeirick81 (-86) 9 months ago

I don't determine that another human being has to work for me, the human being asks me can they work for me. They don't have to. It is their free will. Society does not agree on the value of money, The value of anything is what is agreed upon by the buyer and the seller. The government nor society can dictate what value money is. Why do you think there is bitcoin. Because people do not trust the US Government. According to your logic if I pay someone in bitcoin, then society has no responsibility.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (8331) from Phoenix, AZ 9 months ago

It doesn't matter if they "have to" or not simply that they do once you employ others you enter into a social contract and we all have a "say". Money only has value because society says so, how MUCH money is determined by buyer and seller, not really up on your ecominics are you? and bitcoin also has a society that writes the rules and creates the "value" you really don't know how anything works do you? but sure the purpose of bitcoin is to avoid the society controls, go ahead spend your bitcoin i don't care, I do care if you employ others though, then you gotta follow the rules...

i think you guys are not being helpful here. we live in a capitalist society. we all must survive somehow and starting your own small business and employing people is a good way to do it. in a prefect world maybe we can all work for employee owned business but this is not a prefect world.

i teach tennis - in the past i have hired people to work for and with me. it is my knowledge that my students want and i am responsible if something goes wrong. i do not think the helpers i hire are being exploited.

we also have a small solar business that we started with our savings. it took years to save the money with which we funded the purchase of machinery. should those who work for us get the same pay as we do??

these are somewhat tricky questions but small grassroots capitalism is not such a bad thing. the corner store of my youth - the local hardware store and shoe repair shop are not exploiting people in any really way - certainly not like walmart.

i think you are doing a disservice to the ideals of occupy if you trash every small family owned business. most of them are hard working people who are solidly middle class - if they are lucky. remember the slogan is 99% - who the fuck knows about the brent man but i am part of the 99%.

False...this is the biggest lie going today. Stop stealing all our land and we can build our own. Industrial landlording is the most putrid vile form of corruption the world has always known. When a conglomerate of pooled funds or old aristocratic monied classes begins to compete with the citizenry for housing...what we have is Feudalism. The powers that be begin to set laws that favor the landowners that actually prevent the citizenry from ownership of housing or land as well of course those ptb also landlord at over inflated rates far above what you pay your employees you charge in rent. What does a developer or landlord do? Take opportunity away from citizens to be a part of the very society they fund with their labor. It is all wrong. You know it too. You feel it deep down don't you? You aren't working very hard. Somewhere along the line you said yeah it really isn't fair but I'm getting mine. And those immigrants working for developers sucking in asbestos...getting injured with no insurance...those poor people you evict with your power and money. You can't possibly deep down feel you have created a thing. Ownership over something for which you had or now have an unfair advantage...isn't smart or clever nor creative. It is opportunistic at best...it is destructive ...and like a shark biting at any thing you prey on those weaker and broker. You do not create. Stop fooling yourself. You aren't fooling anyone else either by the way...even landlords and developers hate themselves and eachother. It brings nothing lasting and says nothing good about you...I pitty you. Take care of your character for it becomes you.

The slice of American pie was supposed to be a modest single family home with a picket fence and a decent yard. Now we have apartment complexes and condo substations where we reside in our 12 by 12 pods until we return to work as if from stasis to labor all day to pay for the pod. It is a bizarre kind of system. living to work...what is next actual home stasis pods extra fee for air and water?

Well Brent it seems by your response I hit the nail on the head because you did what all personality disordered narcs do and instead of mustering up an intelligent response you attacked...which is probably how you treat your poor tennants and employees when they try implore you for some rational empathy. Control does not represent happiness. And I think if you began to use your skills for something good real and equitable...you would begin to feel whole again. The definitiin of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Try lifting people up instead of standing on their heads. having money and power doesn't mean you are better...it means maybe others didn't get the same chance or perhaps their conscience stopped them from going as far as you have because they were not willing to sacrifice their character as you have. It is the wrong road...but it is never too late to back up.

I'm broke but I'm happy, I'm poor but I'm kind and on my grave I hope it says here lies someone who never hurt someone else to get ahead. I don't want what you have. And I dont want what you want. I can't be happy in a room full of unhappy people. Some people can they thrive on that...but it is because something is very wrong in their psyches.

I don't know about you - but I pay extra for water. Economics has changed from when I was growing up in grade school. Back then economists were teaching (yes as early as grade school) that no one should pay more than 25% of their income for housing - if they wanted to be able to have a proper budget that allowed savings for times of need or retirement. The Market Place couldn't have that - and so we find ourselves here, where many are paying 3/4s of their income for just a roof over their heads or are living in their car.

GREED must be regulated or Society Fails!

We need to see a movement for affordable housing that takes no more than say 25 to 30% of a single individual's or a married couple's income. & not just in SOME areas (as that leads to ghettos) but in every market place across this country.

If absentee landlord ownership and rental streams are banned and rental streams of interest are also banned, affordable housing will move towards reality. Public ownership of land, mass housing and non profit lending are the only way affordable housing and sustainable economy will come to pass.

Your business affects the community. By the supreme law of the universe, the community must affect your business. The community may very well be totally unqualified in some cases, such as the 2010 Macondo-well BP oil blow-out in the Gulf of Mexico had proven to the World. Of course, we have our Commando-in-Mischief erasing and recreating our memories so the U.S. has gone commando in Macondo. It's NO accident that our Commando-in-Mischief got into power because of the U.S. history of slavery (through the legacy of counting "men" and "sub-humans" and the Electoral College of Trumpanzia). ONLY human blood can atone for Sins, as billions of Christians worldwide believe. Erythrobaptism works. Qualifuckation also works for business as our Commando-in-Ma-Con-do demand of "bird ser-tit-fuck-ate" has proven for such a long time.

Generally speaking, humanity has grown less inclined towards violence as our cultures evolved to have better means of satisfying our burning desires "God also made me fast!" Kriege (wars) are NO longer the matter-of-fact "grocery shopping" of the act of kriegen (getting/obtaining). Most of the civilized world no longer condones grabbing women and girls off of the streets to enslave and rape them. The Western World tried to build that safeguard into the upbringing of the men and boys to some incomplete success. The rest of the world still tries to uphold the millennia-old customs and traditions that worked. A male (males in general ARE INDEED physically stronger than females) escort for female relatives is absolutely required to protect them if the patriarchal autocratic/machismo culture allows the males to abduct, rape the females, and then stone them afterwards for having committed adultery or fornication. In the U.S. for a long time, females were counted as ZERO "men" and the African slaves as three-fifths of a "man" in the representation through the House of Representatives so the females were even less "men" than slave "chattel." We the Americans frankly understand very well in our Collective Unconscious (as with King David) the Islamic and Hindu practices regarding women and girls.

The ancient Greeks' (and later on the copycat Romans') glorification and reverence of the human body (and the Humanism that had created the "Glory that was Greece!" - oh Yes, "testify!") will clash terribly with the Islamic and Hindu cultures. As far as the material comfort and well-being of the common people are concerned, the Western World, having gone through the Renaissance inheriting the ancient Greeks' obsession of and reverence for the human body, is definitely superior. I AM American because my father had his Enlightenment in a PUBLIC (gloriously belonged to the People!) toilet of the U.S.A. with "running Hot water!"

We must regulate businesses because evolution for better human ends is possible. Our ancient ancestors were probably violent slave-holding women-raping cannibals at one time or another but we have evolved legal mechanisms to resolve conflicts, abolished slavery mostly in favor of machine enslavement, locked up rapists and pedophiles, and banned head-hunting and eating human flesh and organs. Picturesque castles (many in nowadays Germany) bespoke of the barbaric horrors of the Past (wars, sieges, diseases, starvation, rapes, arsons, massacres, and deaths).
