I want you to look at this cartoon from a California school system.
One thing that is completely ignored by this cartoon is that the three people peering over the fence are watching the game without having paid for admission. In other words, the three in the picture are stealing the labor of the baseball players, in that they are receiving their labor without having paid for it.
Even ignoring that, this is a poor example. In economics, there are no boxes that people can stand on. The additional height that is provided by the box must come from somewhere. A more accurate creation of the differences would be to dig a hole under the tall person’s feet, and use the fill dirt to create a mound upon which the others would then stand.
With all of that, this ‘equity’ movement is being taught to our children. It is being forced upon us through corporate culture. Overly simplified, it ignores reality in favor of a pipe dream where everyone gets to watch free baseball. In other words, our schools are teaching communism. Sure, they will deny it, but that is the essence of communism.
They begin with a premise: that some group or another is the recipient of an unfair advantage. Let’s call that group the bourgeoisie. They have an unfair advantage in that they own the means of producing and creating wealth and are concerned with the value of their property and the preservation of capital to ensure the perpetuation of their economic supremacy. In other words, they have made it and are now using the laws of society to keep everyone else from making it. They have gotten rich and are staying rich by ensuring that poor people stay poor.
They do this through two means:
- One group of the bourgeoisie steals wealth by forcing the workers to build things for low wages (employers).
- The second group of the bourgeoisie steals wealth by charging the workers rent for either property (landlords) or money (bankers).
Let’s contrast them with the second group: Let’s call them the proletariats. The proletariat are forced to accept low wages in return for operating the means of production, which belong to business owners, the bourgeoisie. In this way, the bourgeoisie steal the property of the proletariat by forcing them to work for low wages, then taking those wages away by charging interest and rent for property that they own.
Now let’s mix in a racial component to make the picture complete. The white man is the source of all of the troubles of POC. You see, whites stole this land from the peace loving POC, then through the use of slavery, built the entire nation. Now that they are all bourgeoisie, the whites have set up this system to keep themselves rich, and the proletariat poor.
The only way to fix this, is to place whites at a disadvantage to the point where we all can watch the baseball game together. Does this sound familiar? It sounds remarkably like the speeches of Adolf Hitler, who blamed the Jews for all of the problems of the Aryan Nation.
I have seen this movie before. It always ends with box cars and systemic extermination of the bourgeoisie. Make no mistake, the war has begun. Whether you want it or not, it’s here.
As for me, I won’t be loaded into a box car, nor will my wife.
I leave you with the words of the rock band Rush:
The end was begun, it would hit everyone
When the chain reaction was done
The big shots try to hold it back
Fools try to wish it away
The hopeful depend on a world without end
Whatever the hopeless may say
