Do You Hate What You Are?

Do You Hate What You Are?
by Saab Lofton

"The true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality ... Our vanguard revolutionaries must idealize this love of the people ... We must strive every day so that this love of living Humanity is transformed into actual deeds, into acts that serve as examples."
--Che Guevara

Meanwhile, right-wingers -- laissez-faire capitalists in particular -- HATE Humans, which explains why they worship Ronald (SIX letters) Wilson (SIX letters) Reagan (SIX letters) even though The Beast was guilty of this ...

"Unemployment grew in the Reagan years ... At the end of the eighties, at least a third of African-American families fell below the official poverty level, and black unemployment seemed fixed at two and a half times that of whites, with young blacks out of work at the rate of 30 to 40 percent. The life expectancy of blacks remained at least ten years lower than that of whites. In Detroit, Washington, and Baltimore, the mortality rate for black babies was higher than in Jamaica or Costa Rica."
--A People's History of the United States

... the rich/powerful (the right-wing) hate pale-skinned Humans too (but not as much) ...

"A coal miner still dies every six hours from black lung disease."
--the Reverend Jesse Jackson

... those who love Humans will ensure employment ...

"If we lived in a society that said our first goal was employment at a livable wage for everyone, if the person living next door to you -- if that person's making $40,000 a year, what's the chance they're going to come in and steal your TV or harm you on the street? Absolutely none."
--Oscar winning documentarian Michael Moore

... unfortunately, all too many are under the erroneous assumption that any attempt to abolish poverty will supposedly cause Stalin to rise from the grave like a zombie. That's 100% pure, uncut bullshit ...

"Twenty years ago when people here thought about socialism they were thinking about the Soviet Union. Now they think about Scandinavia. In Vermont, people understand I'm talking about democratic socialism."
--U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

"Denmark and Finland have child-poverty levels of less than 3 percent, and are closely followed by Norway and Sweden, thanks to higher levels of social spending. In the U.S., 17 percent of children live in poverty."
--The Seattle Times, January 4, 2006

... "higher levels of social spending," which can only be afforded by heavily taxing the rich -- and if any libertarians claim that taxation is supposedly theft, BEHOLD ...

"American railroads owes everything to government welfare ... what did the government do for the 20,000 workers -- war veterans and Irish immigrants -- who laid five miles of track a day, who died by the hundreds in the heat and the cold? Did it give their families a bit of land as payment for their sacrifice? Did it give loans to the 10,000 Chinese and 3,000 Irish, who worked on the Central Pacific for $l or $2 a day?"
--Professor Howard Zinn

... WORKERS CREATE WEALTH, so they should have easy access to it!

Since Scandinavia has proven Humans can share the wealth without the emergence of some Stalinistic stereotype, what's the hold up? If it's a hatred of Humans, then stop it! I mean, Michael Jackson suffered from self-hatred and look how HE turned out!

Let's play compare and contrast: In Superman: The Movie (1978), Jor-El teaches his heroic son, "[Humans] can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way."

In the same movie, the villainous Lex Luthor reveals that his father taught him, "people are no damn good" -- later, in Superman Returns (2006), Luthor reiterates this cynicism, "people are a dime a dozen."

Which assessment is accurate? Well, according to a man who was like a father to me, Professor Howard Zinn, "[the MYTH of Human Nature is] certainly wrong. And furthermore, it's dangerous. Wrong, because there is no real evidence for it. Not in genetics, not in zoology, not in psychology, not in anthropology, not in history, not even in the ordinary experience of soldiers in war. Dangerous because it deflects attention from the non-biological causes of violence and war."

... "non-biological causes," such as the Gulf of Tonkin LIE and the weapons of mass destruction LIE that jedi mind tricked the ignorant into obeying the military-industrial complex. Oh, if any servants of the empire claim that cutting America's bloated military budget in order to afford eco-friendly job creation a la the Apollo Alliance will supposedly leave us defenseless, keep this in mind: The military budget for 2000/2001 was in the hundreds of billions; higher than that of any other nation-state, AND YET those planes STILL crashed into those buildings on 9-11, so shoveling money down the Pentagon's Orwellian Memory Hole does NOTHING but make an elite of weapons manufacturers even wealthier ...

"Ultimately, there is no military solution to the problem of terrorism. We can defend ourselves best by working to eliminate the root causes of terrorism: hunger, disease, lack of education, repression."
--Mark Zepezauer, Boomerang: How Our Covert Wars Have Created Enemies

... those who love Humans will follow Zepezauer's wise advice.
