Only by freeing the global black is the American black free

The following is a reply of mine on Black Agenda Report, here.

Communist? Don’t be ridiculous.

There’s a world of difference between global class consciousness and American class consciousness. The former treats every human being in the world equally – the latter treats every human being in the United States equally. The United States is the most powerful criminal society in the world – so the difference between the two consciousnesses is vast.
BAR’s main focus is on the oppression and mistreatment of American blacks (and other American poor). Yes, they have secondary focuses on the rest of the world. But if BAR wants to solve the problems derived from capitalism, problems which ultimately come home to roost for American blacks, they need to primarily look outside the US – they need to examine the primary victims of capitalism, who are NOT American blacks.
While American blacks struggle to remain out of prison, employed, and finally to join the oppressive bourgeoisie class (which they call “success”), global blacks struggle to not starve to death, they struggle to not suffer debilitating diseases, to not lose their homes or spouses or children to imperial wars – to not lose their communities – to gain some measure, any measure, of control over their lives.
It’s not an either-or choice. I’m not saying ignore American blacks because others suffer more. I’m saying that the problems of capitalism, capitalism itself, isn’t threatened by a focus on American blacks as the victims, which is why Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X were only killed after their transition towards global socialism.
It’s like someone who tries to attack the mob by causing the mob boss to pay higher wages to the mob underlings. This does not threaten the mob boss – it only annoys him.
However, if the REAL victims of the mob boss – the community around him that he degrades – the decent people – are secured and boosted in their power, the mob boss can be destroyed.
Unless BAR wants to bring down the global capitalist system, the most they can do is transfer money from the American capitalists to the American workers – the same thing that Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Jeremiah Wright are trying to do. Meanwhile, the true victims of America, including those blacks in the Motherland of Africa, will continue to suffer horribly, and to a degree that American blacks have never and will never experience.
Only when the Mob Boss is destroyed is the Mob Underling able to live again as a moral creature, instead of a creature who calls “success” his entry into the ranks of imperial bourgeois dominators of the world.
Until Africa is liberated, until Asia is liberated, until Europe is liberated, until the Middle East is liberated, America is enslaved.

    Hey pal, you ought to learn about the caps-lock key on your keyboard.

    You sound just like William Jennings Bryant. Your ideas are essentially carbon copies of early 20th century progressives and populists. These kinds of solutions you propose are what led to the creation of the American Empire.

    All people want to be free and empowered. Noone today is free or empowered – the slave must feel the whip and the slavemaster must use the whip.

    There’s a big difference between what the elite (such as Woodrow Wilson) mean by “spreading democracy” and what democracy actually is. I want to facilitate and increase the power of democracy around the world.

    For the elite, “spreading democracy” (essentially a marketing term) is a code phrase for cultural and economic domination.

    “Late 19th century/Early 20th century progressives/populists – blames capitalism for many problems.

    You – blames capitalism for many problems.”

    Billions of people have blamed capitalism for many problems.

    “Late 19th century/Early 20th century progressives/populists – Favored Woodrow Wilson to accomplish this mission. Their huge voting bloc allowed him to win the presidency.

    You – Who do you favor?”

    People who are not in power. Pinky of The Pinky Show for example is pretty cool. In terms of people who have some degree of political power in the US, I prefer Cynthia McKinney and Ralph Nader. Dennis Kucinich is pretty decent, especially considering that he’s in the belly of the beast. Near the end of their lives both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X were tremendous. Noam Chomsky and I agree on many issues but his power is indirect rather than direct, like Kucinich’s.

    I prefer talking about people who many people consider to be decent human beings but who are not – like Jesse Jackson. Black “leadership” of today is an utter joke and it’s fooled many – even the supposed hero Jeremiah Wright is bourgeois garbage. Noone has taken up King’s and X’s legacy and it shows. Global socialism IS that legacy.

    “Late 19th century/Early 20th century progressives/populists – Their hero, Woodrow Wilson, favored military force and military intervention to accomplish aforementioned goals.

    You – What do you propose?”

    Bear in mind that “spreading democracy” was never about spreading democracy – it was about spreading the economic power of the American elite, which began in 1898. Wilson’s “spreading democracy” was only somewhat better than Cheney’s “spreading democracy” – and had a similar meaning.

    The best way to increase the power of democracy around the world is to educate and organize – make sure the people know the truth and organize them into political groups that can (and then of course, *will*) take power away from the slavemasters. Democratic movements already in play should be given resources – financial, intellectual, organizational, and otherwise.

    All capitalism is is private (meaning, individual) ownership (and hence control) of everything. It’s not some magical thing that created the industrial revolution or whatever other nonsense capitalists tend to spew. The lack of capitalism does not mean “Back to the Stone Age!” – it means social justice – it means community strength – it means peace and prosperity. It’s the legacy of Debs, and King, and Luxemburg, and X, and so many others finally realized.

    I would be interested in seeing what you mean here. If not by military conquest, by what method would you propose spreading democracy?
