That What Keeps Coming Up In This Conversation

The the hard edge of the conversation about race is economics that until there is meaningful economic opportunity and that’s gonna require not the the but the current system is divided up differently, but that is changed. I mean if you look at and this is the big problem with America. You know America if you look about African Americans. They were taken to America because of slavery to do labor that’s the point that’s what is 40 million African Americans in the country slavery ends you don’t need them anymore you know there’s a boom in this after the post-war is a boom where you need workers and people are getting get someone better, but that’s God I mean look at the way work is going there works just generally gotten even to robotics or it’s gone to the world that’s. Causing these problems in America, so you actually have 40 million people in the society cannot provide for it literally and they’re treated as surplus so what do you do possible steps can you take other than radically rethink in the whole entire than the way the economy works because I guarantee there are enough jobs well paying decent jobs in America for African Americans to every quality exist so what do you do you have to.

If You Accept It, Then You Have

to accept you need to ever ready go bloody okay. Andy will thank you. I suppose like what I get from from this conversation. What I feel like is that collectively communally that we need to concretize some radical ideas so that it’s less so that we know what it is people are discussing so far. In this conversation the idea of like abolition of the police force, abolition of the prison system meaningful rely cuz like like you said There is a surplus population due to the way that manufacturing industry has changed, and it’s no prizes for guessing who’s gonna be the 40 billion suffer so like a unless unless unless the pinnacle of our achievement is no longer profit, but an entirely different set of aims.

Then This Problem Will Continue To

instantiate in various forms with the symptoms to some degree addressed but the underlying disease never oh Yeah I mean I think there’s two there are two routes for every one of them is is the fact again the whole we do really three thing capital just generally, but if you want to look at psychosis look at the way there, even though the worldly should be going to him surely. If we don’t change people’s do don’t change? This is just tells you have this basic facts right um but the other thing I say to support the oppressed. I mean like this big centuries of movements of people who are better placed to make the changes that we need in some ways like. This is the history of everything Revolution Revolution is what tips things into different man and you have to say where is revolution going to occur Where is it gonna come from it’s not gonna come from white people in Europe in America is not that it’s gonna come from the oppressed and so we we should be doing all we can to support the oppressed to ferment this revolution. If that’s all we want that’s what’s right so at some point yeah thanks so at some point that’s like gonna mean that if if you.

Know If Not An Armed Struggle

that’s gonna be that withdrawal of labor at the unionizing like that’s where that that will come from like that this like the plate the places that are most exploited the people that are most exploited, recognizing that they do have power collectively. I suppose that’s where some sort of global alliance of information and support could take place that you could have here an internationalist solution If if there was you know if that where the support went where the focus went was to the to the most exploited and and I’d mean that no international sense but in an international sense. If you think right ok so we got to support the people that are work and then again you’d straightaway be confronted with oh no we’re blumin with the interests of some of the most powerful nations and corporate. corporate interests in the world, how is this gonna play on the nine O’clock news? These people are terrorists. These people They’re pedophiles.

Theyre Regular As Soon As You

start getting it anywhere near that stuff. I mean that’s the other problem is if you look at the way the things are controlling. I mean it’s the next level of control even in terms of the way the things are produced. So it’s very rare. You have a product was produced in one place because Cathy understands it is producing one place.

You Can Shut Down That Place Stop Production

nicely that’s why pre things are produced in different parts all around the world. Because you stop one place it is pick up somewhere else they look at the technologies of surveillance. I mean look it’s not an easy thing. Nokia say it’s gonna be but at some point if. You know it’s worth seven billion people on the planet The West I mean really only about two billion and doing decently.

Most People Are Doing Really Bad Like

most people in the world. Don’t have a toilet in there no fences. We forget the scale of the problem and so the West is terribly so if five billion people get together and say this has to end it will didn’t he’s just how’d you get how’d you get the I suppose what you’d need is a few educated and charismatic figures. Some international anti-racist Avengers, one of whom might wear a kimono in a dreadful reappropriation of another cultures emblems yeah that actually is ironic because it’s it the technology to do the kind of thing that needs to be done. He’s here like he’s here in a way that it wasn’t here previously you can have conversations just.

A Random Code Like Crazy In

my countries during London, It causes it so in some ways the system to creating the technology for us to have the unity that we need, but because we have the technology were less interested in actually having that unity so totally ironic, but actually the tools are there. If you do want to build a genuine international movement. I think that’s what that’s what we should all be do is if we once you still have nice conversation a global level. Totally the nature of the conversation. My sense is that everybody would be happy happier if freed from this psychosis freed from the illusion that mine are differences between people were worth elevate in the material privileges and comforts while of course, hugely seductive.

If You Can Free Yourself Again With The

spirituality candy if you can free yourself from the wanting. If you can free yourself from the one in an eden-like? If you can become master of yourself instead of master of others, then you are granted a cut now You are free to start thinking alright. Now that now I have a mission now have purpose. I mean I think when you think of the sort of nihilism loss, emptiness banality of contemporary Western life, you know what is it you’re gonna do climb some tiny little ladder in whatever chosen field whether it’s a good one or a bad one that you’ve ended up in or are you gonna be part of something transcendent and glorious now when people start talking that way it always is that it starts getting a little bit shaky, but I still think I still believe in I think that somehow you can reach into people you can reach beyond to their narrow. of beliefs that we all of us have and awakened something in them that is great.

I Think That There Is A Greatness.

I’m trying to wrap up on a high you’ve got you got right twenty things Tomorrow for Guardian readers to sort their blumin out can’t even support me and my cockeyed optimism that’s what every day is destiny and that’s the thing really there will be revolutionary movements. I think that’s probably the route This changes. I think the message for me will be look it would be nice.

  • economy
  • slavery
  • abolition
  • economic
  • race

I Think Youre Probably Right Look We

maybe I’m a bit too pessimistic about the capacity of people to overcome their material benefits and I would love to be proved wrong on this love to be free right it’ll be great if it happen like I said. The point is that we can’t wait for people. people to get up good we’re gonna do it We’re gonna Do you’re gonna get on board on board, but if not the trains going anyway and is that train successful. It’s gonna overturn the system anyway unless ago.

I Dont See You As Pessimistic

or optimistic. I see you as authentic, authentic and when you speak speak from a place of knowledge and understanding, and I also see you as like kind that’s how I see you, which I think is a good tool to have. When you’re going around telling people that they are neurotic, mentally ill and everything’s got be this man who’s lovely that guy says we’ve got deconstruct our lovely comfortable house thank you.

  • slavery ends don need anymore
  • paying decent jobs america
  • jobs america african
  • conversation race economics meaningful
  • surplus possible steps radically rethink
