PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

Philosophy ‘tis not all nonsense

 

marx
Interpreting the world is only the first step,

As Marx said  “the point is to change it”

 

Thought cannot create reality but economic realities can determine how people think.

 

For Marx, history is the story of a constant Dialectical (concerned with opposing forces) struggle

Materialism (the theory or belief that nothing exists except matter and its movements and modifications)

 

Hence – Dialectical Materialism was and is Marx Philosophy.

 

Historically struggles were between slaves and their masters,then between serfs and their feudal masters, and now in modern times and today, the economic civil war is now between the bourgeoisie ( the owners of capital and the means of production) and the proletariat {the industrial urban and rural workers who sell their labour ) 

 

This dialectical warfare must unavoidably end in an international workers revolution transforming all human society and history.

 

Wealth is being concentrated in the hands of fewer and fewer, whilst the vast majority of the population are being driven into poverty.

 

Every year the capitalist world goes from crisis to crisis.

 

Marx always claimed he was not a Marxist

 

Some claim Marx’s predictions now seem to be wrong and that capitalism seems remarkably resilient, that the population are easy to persuade and acquiesce in their own oppression.

 

Some say peace at any price is better than war, that survival is better than death and destruction.

 

SO THEY ONLY TALK ABOUT THE “CHANGE” THAT MARX DESCRIBED

 

And  – “methinks the lady doth protest too much”.- 

 

Sometimes change appears to be too slow but then a spurt comes along
