Men and women of the Left, we face a predicament. Our predicament is simple – we are divided. We are divided by parties, by gender, by class, by a million and one different things. That is why the right triumphs over us. And that is why we continue to lose the battles against the dominant elites that plague our media and suppress our cause.
I’m sick to death of fighting over which party we should join; sick to death of the endless bitching and infighting that goes between those who fight the same cause as us; sick to death of the long endless discussion we have over which cause matters more: gender or class?
Our greatest strength is our numbers – that we represent the majority that has been crushed by those in power. We need to mobilise together, stand our ground under one banner. We fight for democracy not oligarchy, equality not competition (and the falsehood that is ‘social mobility’), and for people not profit.
We need to make Cameron responsible. We need to ask him about his ‘social responsibility’ to make government about protecting its citizens not victimising the poorest. We need to be angry, but win the battle with our words and that fact that we know we are right.
We need to learn not to listen to their spin and their excuses. We need to keep strong and keep our aim to create a better world in focus. Forget the spin machine. Forget the party line. It’s all of us against the elite – and we will terrify them.
Afterall, we are The People. And The People shall always win.
