We are the world

March 29, 2014

We human beings are a political, social, cultural and economic force trapped within the colonial powers of our oppressors’ system, in and out of prison. Our struggle is for absolute self-determination and liberation on a national and international level, by way of changing from scientific capitalism into a scientific socialist system, which is crucial for changing and ending human suffering.

“Humanity” – Artwork: Michael D. Russell, C-90473, PBSP SHU D7-217, P.O. Box 7500, Crescent City CA 95532. Michael, whose powerful work you’ve seen in the Bay View many times, writes: “You must know I am not African American; I’m Mexican and White. Nonetheless that doesn’t matter. I grew up in the City of Watts, Los Angeles.” He’s been in the SHU – solitary confinement – for 23 years, 16 at Pelican Bay. Through history’s largest hunger strikes, the prisoner movement is teaching us that we are one class, united to resist our common oppressor, with one aim, one destiny.
It’s human beings who are the practitioners of progressive theories, which we utilize as a guide for action in our progressive struggle, from the founding of our humanist ideology. We have always presented ourselves as educators committed to the liberation of all oppressed people of the world.

We realize that our oppressors, the exploiters of the people of the world, will never end their aggression and exploitation where there exists no progressive society to challenge such aggression.

Even behind the walls of the prison industrial slave complex, PISC, a system of human degradation will continue to exist, wherever there exist no progressives. We hold the responsibility to fight against the capitalist exploiters of the world. We welcome the ability to serve the interests of humanity.

We are comprised of seasoned educators who are committed to the growth and development of education of all human beings and are rooted in the truths that afford all human beings to exercise the fullness of their potential, bringing into existence a society that represents a true civilization under justice, freedom and equality for all.

This civilization will allow most, if not all, to be educated. This civilization will allow most, if not all, to be educated around politics and economics with the intent to serve the interests of all humanity instead of the small few, as we see today.

We realize none of this can be achieved without the coalescing of the people’s power – a power that has to be precise and decisive in how it goes about bringing into existence the political and economic system of scientific socialist principles. Our responsibilities are totally to the oppressed people of the world, and it will be incumbent upon us to give the oppressed masses moral and physical support, express genuine love toward the people and learn all we can from them so that initiatives in our struggle can be carried out, to resist our oppressors.

We realize that our oppressors, the exploiters of the people of the world, will never end their aggression and exploitation where there exists no progressive society to challenge such aggression.

It is here that we as a lower class people will begin to formulate more ideas around our protracted struggle. The oppressed masses are truly linked to struggle and will have a significant role as we liberate ourselves from our oppressor’s grip in all sectors of society.

If we are to be true servants of the people, we have to be rooted in the practice of selflessness. This is the only way we can begin to champion the people’s causes progressively. All activities we participate in as progressives concerning growth and development should be of benefit to the people. We always have to be mindful in the quest for the people’s liberation that our struggle includes resisting selfishness and materialistic values that encourage the “me” society.

The growth and development of the people is our task in our struggle to be free, but in order to achieve such a task, we have to be equipped with the knowhow to bring about political and ideological development through our progressive organizing around our scientific socialist principles toward meeting the peoples’ needs.

We can very well achieve this task through our philosophy of “each one teach one.” This responsibility can only be efficiently embraced by our masses by bringing about a new breed of human being: women, men and children who adhere to the concepts of love and respect for all progressives and fellow human beings.

The women, men and children who embark on this progressive journey by challenging the inhumanity, injustices and rampant poverty that have subjugated the oppressed to a state of constant conflict and oppression in which millions are dying daily and living half butchered lives – they will be the leaders of the 21st century.

We can very well achieve this task through our philosophy of “each one teach one.” This responsibility can only be efficiently embraced by our masses by bringing about a new breed of human being: women, men and children who adhere to the concepts of love and respect for all progressives and fellow human beings.

We can seriously study and see where the errors of our ways have set us on a course that has stagnated our growth and development by not understanding the true methods to employ so as to achieve our objectives as an oppressed lower class of people.

We see people struggling in all areas of oppressed societies, no matter where we are in the world, as Alina of France, Annabelle of The Netherlands and Penny Love of San Francisco can testify so eloquently. They all clearly understand how the oppressed people of the world continue to be exploited by the very small group of rich human beings.

As long as we can agree on how to achieve our objectives for the greater good of all human beings, then we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods, strategies and tactics to reach a common objective. It is essential that we all keep foremost in our minds at all times that the objectives take precedent over the individuals. And that the struggle is about bringing principles into practice for the greater good of humanity.

In solidarity always, one love, one struggle,
