The Lucy Parsons Project

With class tensions rising it is seems unfortunate that some would reawaken the memory of Lucy Parson and the Haymarket Affair of 1886. Learn the use of explosives, she counseled the tramps of her day. This led only to slaughter. Lucy's own husband was tried, sentenced, and hung. Instead of class war, which can only end badly for all concerned, let us make common cause. Let us find new ways to help the super-rich who could if they chose, and liked us and cared about us, and saw a way to profit from it, do so much to help us. They give us jobs, or could. At least they give those of us jobs who work at the going third world rates. We merely give them tax breaks. Surely, if we gave them more tax breaks, and eliminated all regulation of their companies, and gave them personally unlimited liabiilty, and bailed them out when they failed, they would do even more for us than they already have? It is true that they have more and more as we have less and less as they get more and more tax breaks, but that is because we have not given them enough tax breaks fast enough yet. Zero is a good rate on capital gains. 12.5 for companies would bring money back from overseas. This is not a matter of politics. It is common courtesy. It is the least we can do for those who do so much for us, or could, if they liked us more.
