Overthrowing the New Slavery
Today, most people suffer under globalistic slavery: either wage slavery or physical, chattel slavery. There are currently more than 27 million people physically enslaved as chattel. 1 Approximately 95% of the 6.4 billion persons now living suffer under wage slavery at one time in their lives: 6.175 billion.
Note carefully your feelings when you read the word slavery, as though it couldn't possibly be that people are literally slaves today--slavery seems like an outmoded form of life from previous centuries. Whatever we feel, slavery is very much a fact of life for most people in the world today. A person is a slave if he has lost control over his life and is dominated by someone or something--whether he is aware of this or not. Wage slavery is the condition in which a person must sell his or her labor-power, submitting to the authority of an employer, in order to merely subsist.
At present we are suffering from the seizure of all branches of American government by a demonic cabal and its Obama puppet regime. Bush II was put into power with the connivance of the criminal acts of his brother Jeb in Florida and the coup d'etat perpetrated by the reactionary Supreme Court appointing Bush president in 2000. Under the cabal puppets such as Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and Obama, America has become an imperialistic, militaristic banana republic.
The ravages of wage slavery are becoming clear for all Americans to see and feel. We either overthrow this new slavery or we will end up chattel slaves to a new capitalist class of criminal thugs. To help us re-establish our Constitutional freedoms, we must establish equitable economic principles. We can begin by working for the realization of the Second Bill of Rights as presented by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his State of the Union Address in January, 1944.
During his State of the Union Address, Roosevelt declared that the nation had come to recognize, and should now implement, a second bill of rights. Roosevelt did not argue for any change to the United States Constitution; he believed that the second bill of rights should be implemented politically, not by federal judges. Roosevelt's stated justification was that the "political rights" granted by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights had "proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness." Roosevelt's remedy was to create an "economic bill of rights" which would guarantee:
"The right to a useful and remunerative job"
"The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation"
"The right of every family to a decent home"
"The right to adequate medical care and opportunity to enjoy and achieve good health"
"The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment"
"The right to a good education"
Roosevelt stated that having these rights would guarantee American security, and that America's place in the world depended upon how far these and similar rights were carried into practice.
The Public Service Economy
Historically, federal, state, and local governments have managed certain businesses and industries which the American public thought best kept in public hands: prisons, schools, forests, parks, military bases, retirement funds, utilities, etc. And American citizens have also wanted their government to regulate certain businesses and industries which the citizens felt could only be scrutinized by public agencies, not privately-owned enterprises.
Beginning in the 1960s the demonic cabal's front organizations--Cato, Heritage Foundation, American Enterprise Institute (AEI), Committee on the Present Danger, Free Congress Foundation, Council for Inter-American Security, Council for National Policy, etc.--began to raise a loud outcry that governmental regulatory agencies had been "captured" by the industries under regulation. Of course, the allegations were largely true--their political puppets had made sure that the public regulatory agencies such as OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), and EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), were either crippled or co-opted.
But many Americans, made indifferent and ignorant by the demonic cabal's subversion of American education beginning in the early decades of the twentieth century, can't see that the groups claiming to be watching out for citizens' interests are actually fronts for the American ruler group. The mind-robots eat up the catch slogans of: "get the government off the backs of the people" and "consumer choice." So they stand still when the elite's political puppets put through legislation which creates deregulation and privatization of public institutions.
The cabal's political puppets broke up some of their large competitors, such as AT&T, IBM, savings and loan institutions, and airlines, so the cartel could increase its holdings in the telecommunication, computer, banking, and air travel industries. Then, the cabal began its deregulatory experiments with the opening of access to networks. Under this approach, the physical infrastructures of the networks (such as airports, cables, pipes) remained regulated natural monopolies, but access to these networks was opened so that the remaining elements could be submitted to competition: airline traffic, telecommunication services, gas and electricity production, etc.
Americans know that historically, the U.S. was created on the principle that citizens own public land, highways, schools, ports, airports, parks, the airwaves, government buildings and other assets. Under the present criminal regime, public assets such as energy production plants, water resources, prisons, and many others, have been seized by members of the cabal under the guise of "privatization." Americans must create a government that will serve as the protector of the citizenry, and champion their cause when confronted with the predatory greed of profit-motivated corporations and individuals. Americans don't see anyone in the federal or state government doing anything but assuring that the big corporations' profits skyrocket even more. So Americans are beginning to inform themselves--primarily through the Internet.
We must realize that our economic situation at present--a very few obscenely rich people owning companies and corporations and having illegally seized state and federal political power--is one which we can and must change. Our current economic and political circumstances are not written in stone; humans have lived under very different political and economic conditions throughout our history. We must begin to overthrow this present state of affairs where most of us suffer under wage-slavery. The political system and the economic situation should be directed toward the welfare of all Americans, not just a few. We can bring about these changes; it is not impossible.
We must first make all Americans aware of our present plight and then begin in all possible ways to overthrow the new slavery, producing material changes leading to political freedom and economic equality of opportunity through building cooperative commonwealth communities.
