Anonymous asked: What is your response to third worldists who say that the first world working class is not revolutionary because "life is pretty good for most people"?
Sounds like something a capitalist would say, in fact that’s one of your average capitalist’s go to arguments, I’m sure we’ve all heard it a million times… But the fact is that life isn’t “pretty good” for most people, unless you actually like spending more time doing a job you dislike than with your friends or family. Just because it’s worse elsewhere doesn’t mean we should be happy pissing our lives away for a wage.. It’s also a fallacy that people need to be immiserated in order to rebel, the workers and students who took to the streets in Paris 68 or in Italy throughout the seventies were enjoying the highest quality of life their families would have ever seen, in relative terms life was better than “pretty good” for them, they worked shorter hours, had better housing, education, healthcare etc etc…but they went out in mass numbers and fought for revolution anyway.
asked: So now a tank has shot at a school! This is just wrong! IRDF is just shooting at whatever the fuck it wants. Killing innocent people for no bloody reason. 30 people are confirmed dead, 100 injured. These poor people were taking shelter at a bloody school and still get bombed at. I cannot believe this. It has really fucked me over. Israel is gonna say "one Hamas man was in there, we had to do it" or some bullshit like that.
(Just going to leave this here but would like to point out that I wouldn’t use the term “IDF” because it gives off a false impression and also plays into the Israeli government’s narrative that all their war crimes are to ‘defend’. There is nothing defensive about carrying out massacres and bombing schools and hospitals. Israeli military/army/occupation forces suits them better.)
