FK – Not all ‘jobs’ are a ‘bridge to a better life.’ Many professions don’t care how many floors you’ve mopped or burgers you’ve burned, they just want to know if you can do what they need. The majority will not end up in a ‘profession’ unless one calls putting screw ‘a’ in hole ‘b’ or delivering freight ‘professions.’ I don’t.
The ‘war on poverty’ was waged to create generational constituents who would be ignorant and desperate and vote for demagogues who every election cycle promise them a sweeter govt. tit to suck on.
We do need to enforce the 40 hour work week and force the big corporations to pay their employees a fair share of their profits. They should be encouraged to hire more part timers because not everyone wants to waste all their time in exchange for money in the short mortality we experience here.
But then many millions are descended from those who have been choosing ignorance for a long time and will put up with anything in the name of ‘making a living.’ I’ve seen it too many times. The submissive have been surviving to breed for a very long time.
If a political party would arise that would do a few simple things to really help the working class and enforce them and stop trying to disarm the common people they could sweep the elections. But the elites don’t want this. The most important thing to understand is that they consider us to be livestock. So-called ‘libertarians’ and ‘conservatives’ often cannot admit this to themselves much less publicly.
Remember what party passed NAFTA and signed it into law. It wasn’t the republicrats, though they probably would have done the same.
