The truth about where your technology comes from.

Since I mention the deferment of suffering that is inherent to living in a Western country that benefits from neo-liberalist policies of aggression towards second- and third-world economies, this image is very relevant to the debate.

    Hey Francois, great post. I want to recommend a book to you:
    “Settlers: Mythology of the White Proletariat”
    This deals with the issues you brought up here.
    Even if you end up disagreeing with the book, I still suggest you read it thoroughly and critically.
    Have a nice day.

      “Sakai, himself of Japanese-American descent, traces chronologically the entire laboring history of the United States from Plymouth to the 1970s, in order to establish his radical and provocative thesis that the white workers in the US have always been a primarily exploiting, labor-aristocratic, parasitic settler class, living off the labor of blacks, Mexicans, Asian coolies, Native Americans, and so forth, whom he considers the true proletarians of American history.”
      Not sure what’s so provocative about that…

    Thanks for sharing this! Our world is fucked right up, to the left, to the right, up north and down south.

    “The white workers in the US have always been a primarily exploiting, labor-aristocratic, parasitic settler class, living off the labor of blacks, Mexicans, Asian coolies, Native Americans…” and off the labor of the remaining whites, too. Don’t forget that, Mr. Sakai!
