The facts are that corporate money and their lobbyist lackeys have been allowed to buy government, that Corporate Personhood has effectively scuppered all that was good in the American system - with the result that Social Darwinism - or Ayn Randism - is rampant. The poor can fuck off and die. It's as simple and as brutal as that.

This morning on my way into work, something incredible happened! At the interchange between the East London line/ Jubilee at Canada Water, the narrow escalator was broken, adding weight to the already massed trudging crowd. People shoved, asserting their greater right over the person next to them, having that right asserted over them by someone else. Then the amazing thing happened. Somebody near the front cried out, and then the crowd jolted with a near mechanical stop. People then began to sit down. On the static escalator, on the floor. One by one, until everyone was seated. Instinctively, we all began to hold hands. Silently, gently. No one said a thing, yet we were all saying the same thing:
“No. We refuse to fight each other. We refuse to beat down our fellow man in the name of sustenance and survival. Existence is a right, it is not a competition. We are workers. This is international worker’s day. This is our day. And today we say ‘NO’”
Actually, no, it was raining so people were even bigger c***s than usual.
