Oftentimes, whenever there is some heinous crime committed against individuals in this society e.g. a vicious murder against children, etc., the question that is always asked is how is it that people could commit such inhumane crimes against other members of humanity? That's not the right question. The correct question is why it is that honest people haven't yet figured out that those people committing those heinous individual crimes are only implementing the skills and tactics they learned from the master of inhumanity - the capitalist system.
Every time this system commits a heinous act e.g. locking up the children of innocent Indigenous families seeking refuge from the carnage caused by capitalism in their host countries. Or, a colonialist inspired massacre between Tutsis and Hutus in Rwanda? Or, a weekend of capitalist cheered upon violence in Chicago, Ill, U.S. The savage sacrificing of human life in New Orleans after Katrina or Puerto Rico after the 2017 hurricane that caused such trauma for those people. What all these atrocities have in common is they were either instigated, encouraged, or supported by either the active involvement or sabotage of capitalism/imperialism. And, this is not even to discuss the brutal wars imperialism has carried out for hundreds of years leading all the way of the most recent ones in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Millions of people in those countries killed for simply standing up for their dignity and self-determination.
The only way all of this carnage could ever happen is if the forces carrying and/or responsible for it happening have absolutely no concern or regret for their actions. That is the legacy of the capitalist system wherever it exists. The ruling classes see themselves as directors of the universe. They wholeheartedly believe that their vision of dominance over humanity is the absolute and sole vision that is viable and legitimate. They have convinced themselves, and many of you, that their mission is the only one ordained by God and they are determined to prevent any force from stopping them in their quest of world domination. Not only have they convinced and recruited many of you to work in the interests of helping them maintain their dominance, they have created a narrative that purports that they have the right to do whatever to whomever dares challenge their manifest destiny. With those types of ideological gears in place, there is no questioning on their part that they are correct. And, any effort anyone makes to try and use morality and logic to convince them otherwise is at best, misdirected. At worse, its naive and suicidal.
The ruling classes see demands for justice as weakness. They are completely immune to the suffering of the masses of humanity. As hard as it is, we have to become politically mature enough to recognize that they see our suffering the same way many humans see the suffering of ant or roach when you spray them with raid. If you confront insects in that fashion, you probably don't spend a lot of time lamenting about the suffering the chemicals you just inflicted upon them are causing to their lives. You aren't stressing about the pain they feel when they scramble to hold onto those last few breaths before they succumb. You aren't tormented by the destruction of their homes if you see their homes as conflicting with the areas you call yours. Philosophically, you see their existence in your space as absolutely unacceptable and you therefore don't see anything you have to do to eliminate them as too extreme. Well, believe it or not. Accept it or not. Want it or not. That is precisely how the ruling classes see you and me. We are no more significant to them as a roach or mouse/rat is to many of us. Just something in their way that has to be eliminated. Can you see the absurdity of a mouse or roach pleading with you to recognize their rights to live? The rights of their children? The same way you aren't listening to that, the ruling classes aren't listening to you.
The ruling classes have no conscience. They are the most advanced terrorist entity that is only consumed with their interests. So, since that is historically and materially undeniable, its time for us to stop living in this fantasy world where we continue to apply norms of humanity on these people. Stop acting surprised when they do what they do. They don't possess any humanity so how can we be surprised when they act in ways absent of human values? Stop expecting them to do the right thing. To wake up and decide they have been wrong. That is never going to happen and by continuing to believe these dysfunctional and childish beliefs, you place all of us in further danger.
They have no conscience. And, the only way we are going to have our way is to recognize that. We start doing that by preparing ourselves to fight back on their level. We have to stop seeing the struggle as one of making a moral appeal to people who possess no morality. We have to acknowledge that all the institutions in these capitalist societies are controlled by the ruling classes. You may vote in somebody, but at the end of the day, the system belongs to the super rich so that person, even with the best of intentions, is not going to be the solution to our suffering. Only we can provide that solution. And the way we do it is by appealing to each other. By learning how to build up infrastructures that permit us to learn how to have the type of healthy patience with each other that some of us continue to provide in dysfunctional ways towards the ruling classes. We have to learn that patience to work together and we have to build independent structures that permit us to rely on each other to fight back for our liberation. We have to learn how to expect nothing from our enemies except a relentless struggle to the end. We have to prepare ourselves for that protracted struggle and we have to learn how to build up and support each other in that process. That's the only way we can build capacity to really challenge these beasts. And in the process we definitely have to accept and understand that there is no level to low for them to stoop to attempt to stop us. We cannot be shocked at their brutality. As astounding as it sounds, we have to train ourselves to expect that from them because in doing that we can teach ourselves to prepare in how to deal with their brutality in ways where it doesn't derail us from continuing our struggle against them. If you study roaches, that's exactly what they have evolved to do. That's why they are some of the most relentless creatures on Earth. We certainly aren't comparable to roaches, but there is something that can be learned here. We have the capacity for reason so unlike roaches, we have the ability to take our survival skills and advance upon that to create some sustainable and development capacity for humanity. We only get there though when we learn to recognize where we are in relation to the people we are fighting against. Its us against them. Anyone who doesn't yet understand and accept that is prolonging our suffering.
