At the end of the 19th C, labour leaders, and many among the labouring classes, knew that conservative elites were abusing the offices of state*; not only for immense private gain, but to maintain an out of date, deeply undemocratic class system in Britain.
By that time that system had long been known to the world as "capitalism". Labour was finally founded in 1900 to oppose it. More than a century later, capitalism, thus Britain's deeply undemocratic class system, not only remain, but appear to be going from strength to strength.
It can't surprise, then, that there are many who doubt the capacity or intent of the present-day Labour Party to offer a real alternative, a real opposition. And if that is so, then Labour's real effect on us today is the very opposite of its founding aims. I contrast the hope we
felt from 2015-19 with the despair we feel today. As we stand on the brink of losing yet more of our loved ones and more of our lives and our rights to grotesque neofeudalism, I ask, oppose capitalism, oppose the rank injustices of Britain's deeply undemocratic class system, or
let others through who will.

*To this day, Britain's conservative ruling class maintain a rate of interest attached at inception to all issued currency, to put the entire country in their hands forever and the rest of us toiling/poor/firmly in our place. #Capitalism, far more
closely related to feudalism than to #democracy, should be opposed by everybody.
