We want a revolution

Every few months some fat cat from the banks or a think-tank announces that we peasants are going dangerously far into debt.

Every few months some fat cat from the banks or a think-tank announces that we peasants are going dangerously far into debt.

We just have to quit living the high life. i.e. “Let them eat cake,” like before the French Revolution.

While wages haven’t risen in this plutocracy, CEO pay went from 20 times the workers pay in 1965 to 273 times as much today. The boss makes more in one day than the worker makes in a whole year! They keep working-class wages down by importing cheaper Asian labour and the threat of offshoring our jobs.

So, to the fat cats, I say, that sound you hear isn’t us peasants eating cake, we are just getting the old guillotines down from the attic.
