As much as I believe there are serious problems we’re facing today regarding racial inequality and systemic discrimination, I believe those are now at best a side effect of separating people, and not a main concern.

We know racism is just an excuse use for capitalism. Everything would be alright if we put everything back in the hands of people but that is currently impossible because what capitalism does is to move away people from proper education for life and instead educates people about working and providing for the capitalist, the master.

That is why I always say before any action, before doing anything, we need education. In a social problem, every single part of that society is involved but everything can be messed up without every part doing its job correctly and that is when proper education comes in. People need education about social matters, about their lives, about their rights, their being, their true self, and humanity.

We need to do more talking, more listening, more arguing, more reading, more learning, and more educating before doing any action. A revolutionary is useless if the revolutionary has no education. Whenever I talk about revolutionaries I have to explain a revolutionary is not necessarily part of a militia; A revolutionary is a person who either participates in, or advocates a revolution. When used as an adjective, the term revolutionary refers to something that has a major, sudden impact on society or on some aspect of human endeavor and I believe cultural revolution, mind revolution, has far more impact on people than militant revolution.

A system can’t be changed without people being changed. If we put the same minds and the same culture in a new system, all we did was to put people under a lot of pressure and manipulate them for a while.

This is what capitalism wants. Capitalism and the capitalists want us to be separated, to be manipulated and think about side issues. Capitalism wants us to think some of us are guilty of what happens to some others. The capitalist wants whites to think blacks are trying to wipe them out and wants blacks to think every white person is racist. Capitalism wants women to think all men are sexist and wants men to think feminism wants to destroy manhood.

Capitalism wants us separated because with us being separated it can produce more workers to think inside the system therefore capitalism not be threatened. With us separated capitalism will be able to manipulate us to work more for the benefit of the system, the benefit of the master.

When people are separated, they will fight against each other instead of fighting against the system and the capitalist, the master, who put them through all of this. Separating people is dangerous. That is why, for example, I don’t support the Black Lives Matter organization/corporation but I support the movement. That is why I don’t call myself a feminist but I support treating all sexes with justice and believe men and women are equal (in them being humans).

Sometimes when I use the term ACAB, some people argue that many blue pigs protect and serve the people, which is incorrect. Law enforcement in fact serves the system. It supposed to serve and protect people but what we see currently is that its only mission is to protect the system.

The main idea behind this is that the system has been created to protect and serve the people so by protecting the system we (law enforcement) are protecting the people. That seems to be reasonable but it’s a false claim.

In political science, a political system defines the process for making official government decisions. It is usually compared to the legal system, economic system, cultural system, and other social systems. However, this is a very simplified view of a much more complex system of categories involving the questions of who should have authority and what the government influence on its people and economy should be.

What all of the systems have in common is that they have laws and rules and regulations. Those laws and rules and regulations are applicable on everybody and we believe that because people are essentially equal, they should be equally treated under the same law with same impact.

What we don’t consider is that while people are equal, they are also different so what’s good or positive for a person can be bad or negative for somebody else and by imposing the same laws and same conditions to everybody we’re in fact discriminating against many people and we’re basically oppressing them.

We believe the systems work and there’s some collateral damage in everything so we don’t consider that. We think protecting the system serves people and that’s what made us protecting the system instead of people. After a while, more and more people are hurt, damaged, oppressed, and destroyed basically because we sacrificed people for the systems.

We don’t realize while we were protecting the system, the system itself grew to protect itself. So now even if some people, even if most people, stop protecting the system, the system itself won’t stop protecting itself. It will destroy anything that endangers it and it will save itself by any mean.

While we think the system serves people, we don’t realize that the least good the system does is in fact a way of self-protection. By providing some for the people, the system is spreading this illusion that the system is serving.

It is like a situation of an abductor giving food to hostages. While the abductor does this so the hostage survives and in result the abductor has something to negotiate with, the hostage thinks the abductor is serving. When we look at it, it is very simple but a political system can be very complex so often we don’t consider that.

No political system and no country have any right to exist, people have the right to exist. Today, people are enslaved by rulers and new masters and while the masters never cared or care for people, many people think that the master (or the system) cares for them. While they work, a few harvest and throw the least back at them. It shouldn’t be like this. We should protect the people, not systems.

Many people think of Israel and Palestine as two countries at war with Israel — a state for Jewish people — occupying Palestine, where Palestinians live.

The truth is both Israeli Jews and Palestinians live all over the territory, ruled by one government and one army based on the idea of advancing the supremacy and domination of one group of people of Jews and that is what guides its policies and its practices towards Palestinians. In other words: Apartheid.

There were a group of scientists who were doing some experiments on some monkeys. The put five monkeys in a cage and made them live there. In the cage, they put a ladder and above the ladder, they put some bananas.

Every time a monkey tried to climb the ladder and get some bananas, the scientists poured very cold water on other monkeys that were under the ladder, they shocked those who were under the ladder.

After a while, whenever a monkey tried to climb the ladder to get some bananas, other monkeys would pull the climbing monkey down and beat that poor one. A while passed and none of the monkeys, despite the inherent desire to the bananas, would climb the ladder because they were afraid of getting beaten by others.

The scientists decide to replace one of the monkeys, monkey number one, with another monkey that has no idea about the situation in the cage. When they replace monkey number one, the new monkey tries to climb the ladder and others pulled it down and beat it.

After a few times of getting beaten, the new monkey also decided to not climb the ladder for bananas, even though it has no idea why climbing the ladder is forbidden. When this happened, scientists replaced monkey number two with a new monkey.

Monkey number two was replaced and the same situation went on. New monkey tried to climb the ladder and got beaten and after a few times it decided to not climb the ladder even though it didn’t know why it is forbidden to climb the ladder or eat the bananas on top.

This went on until all the monkeys were replaced by new ones. Now none of the first monkeys are in the cage and all are replaced by new ones, and none of the new ones ever experienced the cold water but every time a monkey wants to climb the ladder, it gets beaten.

If we could continue the experiment and ask the monkeys why they beat the climbing monkey, their possible answers would be 1: I don’t know, it’s tradition, everybody does it; and 2: I don’t know, this is what is popular among other monkeys, you should obey the public.

Traditions and belief in the societies may have a very interesting or convincing root but they may be obsolete nowadays. I’m not trying to argue about the root of the problems, but how or whether they are affecting us today.

What I wrote was simply imposing a modern slavery of thought on monkeys. A similar story happened to humans, I believe. I truly believe we humans are experiencing a form of slavery, a modern new slavery, in which we have no idea why we do certain things or obey certain systems, but we’re too afraid of getting hurt to disobey it or act against the mainstream.

We are too afraid of swimming against the river, and even if we try to do, other fishes will stop us, and if you ask why they do it, they have no answer, they simply believe our actions are not right.

I try to change this, and I hope you join me.

Look at this New York Times title: “Eviction in Jerusalem Become Focus of Israeli-Palestinian Conflict”; and then the text goes on like this: “The effort to evict six Arab families from a contested neighborhood has drawn attention to the Israeli effort to remove Palestinians from parts of East Jerusalem and led to protests.”

Now what is really happening is Palestinians are being forced out of their homes, where they were living forever. The effort to ethnically cleans Palestinians from their homes has drawn attention to the Israeli crimes to remove Palestinians from parts of East Jerusalem and led to protests, where Israeli forces started to oppress them.

If you’re not writing the truth about crimes against humanity, you’re culpable in them. News agencies lie, for their own benefit. This benefit can be support for their political side, gaining attention and support from those in power, or even get paid for lying.

News agencies are our sources for truth, sadly. But happily, every political side, every ideology has its own news agencies and journalists so by following different sources and different people, by comparing what they say and by searching for truth, we can be a little sure that we receive the correct news and understand what is really happening, instead of being manipulated by those in power.

Do you know what is the Boxer syndrome? In the book Animal Farm, Animals helped each other to kick out the master and his family and take control over the farm. The first thing they do after is to set Seven Commandments that said all animals are equal and nobody should claim itself master of others.

But it won’t take long that a pig who became the dictatorial president changes the commandments slowly to put advantages and privileges for itself and those around it.

Ultimately, Napoleon, the president pig, becomes an oppressive dictator and begins to adopt many aspects of human behavior. The pigs start walking on their hind legs, drinking alcohol, wearing clothes, and carrying whips near the end of the book. The commandments are changed to say, famously, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Meanwhile, there’s a working horse named Boxer which is very kind and is morally and behaviorally approved by all farm animals. The animals ask Boxer to help them change the situation (or decide what to do) but Boxer doesn’t pay any attention to its surroundings and is only busy with its hard work.

Boxer’s slogans are “Comrade Napoleon is always right” and “I will work harder!” Boxer feels it should work very hard and should not have anything to do with others.

Although Boxer could prevent the terrible events that fall on the animal farm, he worked hard and had nothing to do with others. He was busy with its own work and only found out about the incidents around itself when Napoleon, the dictator pig, sold it to a butcher.

In our lives, we meet so many people who are busy with their honest hard work and have no idea how the system, state, country, or people are moving or where we’re heading.

In a scene in the Titanic movie, while the ship hit the iceberg and was sinking, while people where screaming and running for their lives, while everybody were trying to be saved, there were a group of musicians/players who were performing classic music masterpieces.

They were doing their best, they were true hard-working people who tried to avoid their work be influenced by the environment/situation they were in. But in a sinking ship, while everybody is busy saving themselves or other people, when nobody is even paying attention or cares about your work, when your work has no good effect on the situation, why and how does it matter?

Many people we know are effected with the Boxer syndrome and forget when is the correct time to take a position or change the situation, or even do anything that matters, sadly.

Colombian people are protesting for different reasons such as tax reform (yes, in the middle of pandemic), health reform, death of social and environmental activists/leaders, and the alarming number of femicides.

People know 42.5 percent of Colombia’s salary is not enough for their basic needs, such as food, service, and rent, and 9.2 percent of the population do not even have three meals a day, some people only have enough for one meal. People are protesting and government is not listening, but killing people.

Government is killing people because they protested for their lives and basic rights. Thousands upon thousands of workers, students, indigenous groups, along with others, are protesting across different cities in Colombia, following calls for national strike to denounce the right-wing Duque government’s neoliberal policies and use of force.

At least 672 arbitary arrests, 136 violent interventions by blue pigs, 30 cases of shootings made by blue pigs, 4 victims of sexual violence by the blue pigs, 940 cases of blue pigs brutality, and 92 cases of blue pigs violence happened until now, and the real stats are way higher than we what know.

Please give a voice to Colombian people, our empathy can give them strength and power to fight for what they want, and what they need.

Karl Marx, one of the greatest thinkers and revolutionaries in history was born on this day (May 5), 203 years ago. Despite our differences in thinking and ideologies, we can’t deny the fact that Marx was one of the most influential politicians and philosophers of the world.

Marx’s critical theories about society, economics, and politics, collectively understood as Marxism, hold that human societies develop through class conflict. In the capitalist mode of production, this manifests itself in the conflict between the ruling classes (known as the bourgeoisie) that control the means of production and the working classes (known as the proletariat) that enable these means by selling their work-power in return for wages.

We shall not say: Abandon your struggles, they are mere folly; let us provide you with true campaign-slogans. Instead, we shall simply show the world why it is struggling, and consciousness of this is a thing it must acquire whether it wishes or not.

GOP lawmakers in multiple states are trying to ban critical race theory in schools. Critical race theory is the historical study of racial injustice and its effects on law and culture, past and present.

In January, Joe Biden reversed the Trump’s national ban on federal funding for diversity training based on critical race theory (CRT), a school of thought that explores the long-term effects of systemic racism.

Some states, including Texas, Idaho and Oklahoma, have now challenged Biden’s move by passing similar bills that ban teachers from discussing issues of race and gender in classrooms — pointing to Trump’s claim that critical race theory curriculum is “racist” and teaches “people to hate our country.”⁣

But many scholars and education advocates have pushed back against this claim and others supported by conservative lawmakers: “CRT challenges us to see that racial injustice in America is not, and has never been, just a problem of isolated instances of individual bias and private prejudice which we can solve by enacting ‘color-blind’ laws and policies,” Kendall Thomas, professor of constitutional law and human rights at Columbia University, told Newsweek.⁣

Bills banning CRT have also been proposed in other states, including Tennessee.⁣

Often when I talk about politics, specially sensitive stuff, people claim they are neutral. I tell them you can’t be neutral, you’re either on the good side, or the bad side. I’ve written a post about this before, but I felt I should mention this again.

Being neutral is impossible because by being neutral you’re basically helping the bad side to win the argument. Imagine you’re in situation where fire is burning wood, how can you be neutral in that situation? Arguing that you’re nor fueling the fire nor turn it off doesn’t make you neutral. By doing nothing, you’re just helping fire to burn the wood without any disturbance.

But don’t get me wrong. Being neutral is different with doing nothing. In politics, being neutral means letting politicians do whatever they want. By supporting a politician or siding with a party, you’re siding with them against people. By not participating in the show they throw, you’re not doing nothing but showing how you’re opposed to the politics and situations they force or impose on people.

Doing nothing in politics is meaningless. You’re either siding with people or siding with politicians. I don’t care how different they seem to be, in their core, they’re simply the same; modern new slave owners, enslaving people.

Often when I talk with people about politics, they claim they’re neutral and I tell them it’s impossible. You’re not neutral in politics, you’re in denial. To me, it’s very simple. I don’t see politicians as a part of people, I see them as a class against people. What they do, even if it benefits people, is not for people. What they do is to help them survive.

Information is often manipulated by them, they own media, news, technology, books, people, resources, etc. and by being neutral (meaning by siding with them), we’re just helping them grow and be stronger. We help them to involve more people, enslave more people, eat more resources, and manipulate us.

You can’t be respectful to all sides, you can be neutral, you can’t be a politician for the people, and you can’t be a human, if you’re simply taking side with those who oppress and hurt people.

You can’t be neutral, you’re either for people or against them, there’s no way around.
