Since any of us exercising even the slightest cerebral capacity understand all of these undeniable facts, the question is why do so many of you continue to let apologists and protectors of this backward power structure convince you to accept phony solutions that you know are not true? Gun control e.g. taking guns out of the hands of everyday people whenever a mass shooting occurs? Are you serious? Look. I get it. The U.S. has an estimated 120 guns in circulation for every person within the U.S. That's obviously obscene, but for anyone to suggest that simply removing weapons from the hands of everyday people will somehow reduce the propensity of violence against colonized people in a society that has been created and maintained based on brutal violence against colonized people is the height of insanity. This problem of mass shootings is just a symptom of the greater problem of anti-humanism, white supremacy, capitalist individualism, anti-humanism, patriarchy, anti-humanism, homophobia, and institutional anti-humanism. This is why even though most everyday people cannot articulate it clearly enough, they will never accept that if a mass shooting occurs they should give up their weapons. They don't believe this because they understand that the police, military, etc., are armed to the teeth and that its those institutions that create the climate of violence in the first place. It was those institutions that facilitated the violent theft of land and murder of Indigenous peoples and the violent kidnapping and violence against Africans enslaved in this hemisphere. So, how the hell is keeping those violent terrorist institutions in tact going to do anything to make all of us safer? The people carrying out these shootings are imitating the violence of the institutional structures of this country. These individual people are just too impatient for the state institutions to carry out their systemic violence so they are taking it upon themselves to carry out the acts themselves. This is all the usual manifestations of a fascist, racist, patriarchal society folks. So, please spare us with the insulting propositions that just getting the current idiot out of the white house will somehow change all of this. Stop telling people that if they just vote for candidates from the other capitalist party that this will somehow stop. The rise of the fascist right is a reflection of the decline of capitalism so whomever you elect they are going to have to cater to the same violent anti-humanist objectives that have always defined this country. That's why your government labels African freedom fighters and anti-fascist fighters as terrorists while saying nothing about the violent white supremacists that have had free movement and actions within this society for 500+ years.
So what can you do? Instead of being pacified by the political mouthpieces for imperialism and white supremacy, are you really ready to do something about this? Clearly, its time for colonized people and all true justice loving people to make the decision to get themselves organized to confront these assaults against our humanity. And, by organization we don't mean electing more bourgeoisie apologists for capitalism from any of the bourgeoisie political parties beholden to this bourgeoisie capitalist system. We mean organizing on a ground level. A block to block level. To a city to city level. State to state level. Country to country level. Worldwide level. And we mean organizing independently from this backward system through mass revolutionary organizing work to bring people together who wish to say no more.
If you don't believe such organizing is possible, and clearly many of you don't because you refuse to engage in any work designed to contribute to that type of organizing work, then what you are saying is you are willing to bet the future of humanity on the same lies that have subjugated human existence for hundreds of years now. For those of us not willing to play that fateful game, we implore you to turn away from bourgeoisie idealism and turn towards mass organization. If you know that it is always only the masses of people who make history, not individuals, then we implore you to dedicate your energies and focus towards efforts to kick start that process so we can begin to organize ourselves to defend against these assaults against our very existence as human beings. You don't have to have experience. As comrade Fidel Castro said, the only qualification is sincerity. If you have that, we can help you build the other components. I often, and I mean often, write with this offer of organizing help and the only responses I receive are people telling me about their individualistic and idealistic visions for how change should take place in their idealistic minds. Completely divorced from reality. Television and fantasy hour is over people. If you really want to get to work, we are here to work with you.
