1. They tell you Bezos is a job creator. In reality he destroyed far more jobs than he ever created. Workers may as well be enslaved with the level of productivity that's expected, having to piss in bottles not to stop pace, & he wants YOU to be grateful.
2. If it wasn't for the employees Amazon would not exist. No company would. Yet, most of those employees probably paid more in city taxes, after cheap wages, than Bezos paid in federal; seems how he got a return instead. The "masters" are not particularly useful.
3. I want to organize some world-wide strike, where we all just don't go to work. Then we can discuss who the producers and creators really are. It's not Bezos. Yet, he is the richest man in the world and owns a piece of our media. Do you think billionaires own media on accident?
4. You've been sold a bill of goods about capitalism! It's infinite growth to the top, lazy one percent, using the finite resources and labor of the 99%. Now they have Yang promising you $1,000 a mo. to keep it going. Trying to convince you we can't fix it. What a joke.
5. They profit off war & the labor and lives of soldiers & civilians. They profit off healthcare & choose what they'll cover & won't, creating death panels. They profit off convincing you that they're job creators & thus deserve all the breaks, while you break your back.
6. People who think Yang & those like him are saviors think they are "woke". What you are is falling for a scam & still gonna be broke! Business owners top priority is profit. They will cut jobs, move overseas, anything to save a $1. They aren't about creating, but cutting jobs.
7. "The move towards socialism requires grassroots participation of activists and passionate individuals working collectively, who believe that another world is possible and that, more importantly, the working class has the power to build it."

8. I encourage you to follow @BlackSocialists, recently endorsed by Noam Chomsky. Here is their website:

9. I encourage you to also follow @profwolff & watch videos like this on YouTube, where he explains in simple terms what we face:

10. "Nothing has contributed so much to the corruption of the original idea of socialism as the belief that Russia is a socialist country... I had seen little evidence that the USSR was progressing towards anything that one could truly call Socialism." ~George Orwell, Animal Farm
11. Noam Chomsky nine years ago on socialism, where he explains wage slavery. Most are familiar with Chomsky, but if you haven't listened to him for long stretches it's a must.

12. Policy tweaks won’t do it, we need to throw the kitchen sink at this with a total rethink of our relationship to ownership, work and capital.

13. The DSA is a great place to start getting involved. I have emailed the one in my area. To learn about those in your area start here:

15. Your value is not in how many hours you work. It's not in becoming an owner to rule over others. It's inherent. We can work together to create the future that often seems so bleak under capitalism. I encourage you to push past the fear of change & begin learning today!
