HARVARD-UNIVERSITYAnother PhD winnerKeeping working over-educated slavesscamsabandon-hopeamerican-greedStudent-Loan-Debt-Tops-900-Billion1california-student-protests.gi.top

Some scams are quite obvious through their open dishonesty. But there are other, more dangerous flim flam operations, which often hide under the covers of opportunity. Some fraud operations have their public exposure from the crime shows on TV.

There exist other swindles that prick at the heart and the mind because we experienced them first hand. So we are survivors now, and we have the responsibility in telling the sleazy tale of deceit. We hold the duty in warning others.

This essay is both a historical piece on one of the most shameful swindles in modern American history, and at the same time, this is a warning for those who might fall victim to the lies of the educated cheats hiding within faculty dungeons and administrator offices – all within the towers and chains of the Amerikan Higher Education incinerator. Let the reader beware.

The university administrators where I had studied, and their very own tenured gang of professors whom I worked for, scammed me horribly. They took away six years of my life for a worthless doctoral degree within the humanities subject of history. Not only did they take advantage of me, but they cursed me forever. They knew full well that I would not find decent work after graduating with a flimsy PhD paper, but they continued their duplicity until the end of my studies.

For a heinous lie, they robbed me of my life’s options, which has all but destroyed my work chances for the rest of my entire life. The only jobs that I can now do represent extremely low-level, low paying work, such as back kitchen, service industry detail, or peon retail, clerical work.

I paid dearly for attending graduate school, but while surviving in that hell mouth of constant work with futile results, I also uncovered a greater crime. It was not just graduate school itself, or the particular university structure that was a corrupt institution. It was the entire Amerikan Higher Ed, College-University System, which was at fault.

I discovered that the Amerikan college complete package was one of the most heinous Ponzi-pyramid schemes. Yet most Americans believe that going to college and getting a degree is a necessary step before entering the work force, almost like a median level between high school and the first real job. This brainwashing trope is similar to many Americans who also believe that the US Military-Industrial-Spy-Complex defends our freedoms and liberties – not the Constitution.

The Amerikan University swindle operates under the bureaucratic-pyramid structure, whether private institutions, for-profit centers, public establishments, or so-called non-profit status centers. All of the above institutions profit off the incoming students and the students’ families.

On the top of the pyramid are lots and lots of administrators, such as trustees, regents, corporate boards of directors, presidents, assistant presidents, provosts, assistant provosts, deans, assistant deans, and multiple other campus directors, such as Director of Affirmative Action, Director of Alcohol Abuse, all of whom run and administer, and most importantly, profit off everyone else that happens to work for them, or pay into the corporation.

These administrators live as the owner class of the institutions. They all make six to seven-figure salaries, receive full rounds of benefits, which often include paid for housing and transportation, and extensive severance packages if forced to vacate their comfortable positions.

The next levels are the selected, top tiered employees, or the commandeering class, who bring in lots of money to the university, such as the football and men basketball coaches, the science, medicine and law, tenured professor stars who receive millions of dollars in US govt. grant money, or the cops that violently protect the administrators’ privileges, such as the campus police force. Like their admin overlords, all of them receive six figure salaries with full, luxurious benefits, and decent severance payments if forced to leave.

The levels further down are all the other tenured, full-time professors and campus spokespersons representing the managerial class. This subset also includes the university librarians, campus food services managers, campus student services managers, campus activities leaders, executive administrative assistants, and the grounds workers, transportation workers, etc., with seniority rights.

There are many of these posts, and they receive good paying salaries with good benefits, but their pay does not often reach to the six figure level, and they must contribute a tax to their campus privileges, such as health care. If they stay for twenty years or longer, without any controversy or incidents, then they can receive a small pension for the rest of their lives, called emeritus, if they worked in the academic fields.

Then the bottom drops out, and literally drops out, for the many peons caught in the college black widow spider web. The peon rabble includes the many part-time, adjunk instructors with advanced degrees who teach a lot of the classes, and who receive no benefits. Their overall net pay is lower than most fast food service workers.

There exist hundreds of graduate student-teaching-research assistants who also teach for extremely low pay. Next, come the campus dining-cleaning workers, most of whom are illegal immigrant workers. A bizarre subset of this rabble comprise the foreign graduate students who work like slaves in the science laboratories, while they pay lots of foreign student tuition money in order to attend those same institutions!

The most abused sub-group represents the thousands of undergraduate students, many of whom also work for the university, and yet, the same university institution taxes without mercy their families for every conceivable, imagined payment. The sordid nickle and dime list of fees includes matriculation, credit classes, non-credit classes, dining, campus services, technology, graduation, transfer, transcripts, applications, counseling, security, building, parking, housing, study abroad, etc.

The next question concerns the history of such institutions: how did they transform themselves into such profiteering, corporate-bureaucratic machines?

Most Amerikan universities and college academics love to ridicule and deride both the for-profit higher learning institutions with their pathetic business and technical degrees and the religious colleges and seminaries that hand out easy doctoral degrees related to religious-theological concerns.

This snobbery is simply the derision of the arrogant buffoons with larded vocabulary looking down on the ignorant poor below. Those pride-ridden boors forget that America’s colleges and universities, the very first ones, such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton, started out as religious corporate institutions, training seminarians for the ministry. Is it not ironic that those same old colonial seminaries of Calvinist fanatics, Puritans, (English rite), and Presbyterians, (Scottish-Irish rite), are now the USA’s top private Ivy League institutions?

The cowardly academic bullies, many of them trained in Neo-Marxist gibberish and who write books and articles that very few people ever care to read, also forget how they willingly cringe and submit to their administrator overlords. The old truth still matters: the bully to the weak, is often the coward to the strong.

By the second half of the 1700’s, the Ivy League seminary schools began to diversify their studies; instead of just the old courses on Biblical Hermeneutics and Ecclesiastical History.

Until the mid 1800’s, most of the Ivy League graduates still had ties to the ministry, or to certain elite families within their geographic region. Since those institutions were the first American universities, and have had the greatest reputations, they started a noxious trend where every other university and college in States has followed their examples.

These private Ivy League institutions, run by Corporate Boards of Directors, now have Endowment slush funds in the billions of dollars, which are greater than most of the world nations’ Gross Domestic Products. Unlike most other universities and colleges, their return on investments works for their students. Even in economic depressions, their students find good paying jobs.

The Harvard Corporation insures that their faithful, institutionalized, corporatized students receive good work prospects within surrogate corporate institutions. The surrogate institutions all swim within the Liberal economic maze, while seeping inside the global capitalist labyrinth.

The Ivy League university system is most important for the Amerikan Empire because it ensures a new generation of institutionalized political-economic elites to take the place of the older ones. A few of the scholarships and poor kids who attend such colleges receive new identities as the future class traitors-ambassadors for the Amerikan imperial project.

The Harvard Corporation stole this method from the British aristo-parasites who always allowed a few wealthy families to enter the titled aristocracy. This illusion of hope and dope allows the elites some breathing room – so they don’t have the fear the mass of wage slaves waking up – and eventually putting the elites into early graves.

Harvard especially uses this deceitful method in advertising ad nauseam its token ex-homeless, ex-welfare hotel, ex-poverty-survivor students as champions of the Liberal ideology. In the Amerikan Empire, everyone has a chance of making it. If you don’t have lots of money and wealth – then that is your problem. The Great Lie reiterates: the ticket to the American Dream remains essentially a university-college education.

Due to the Ivy League’s success in transforming their religious seminaries into first class universities, Amerika’s robber baron capitalists also invested in the higher ed scheme during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Some good examples have included, Leland Stanford in California, Cornelius Vanderbilt in Tennessee. William Marsh Rice in Texas, Washington Duke in North Carolina, Paul Tulane in Louisiana, Johns Hopkins in Maryland, and the capitalist tag team of industrialist and banker, Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon in western Pennsylvania, and finally, John D. Rockefeller’s donation, The University of Chicago. All of these schools are not in the Ivy League geographic zone, but they certainly imply Ivy League standards. The elites’ investments were successful.

Amerika’s state universities also joined in the re-marketing revamp. They hid their ties as boarding schools for elites and wealthy families, and soon brought in academic stars, mostly in the hard and applied sciences. Some state universities’ reputations entered the second class tier, such as the University of California Berkeley, The College of New Jersey Rutgers, the University of Virginia, and The University of Texas Austin. The Amerikan university complex had discovered both a gold mine and an oil-gas pocket at the same time.

By the 1970s, the older western land grant, university institutions for agribusiness, and mining-gas industry related studies, modified themselves into massive state institutions with over a hundred different majors. Former state teacher certification colleges, or regional State colleges, also recast themselves as flag-ship university institutions. Even the junior-technical colleges of two-year Associate degrees, converted themselves into regular colleges with multiple majors for transferring credits into the state college system – the community college system.

All of the Amerikan universities-colleges, from the Ivy Leagues to the small junior colleges in the rural west, have utilized the corporate-bureaucratic pyramid model for achieving their profits. They all function as top-heavy structures with the well-paid administrators teaching no classes, while most of the dirty workers, including the regular instruction of students, represent part-timer adjunks receiving salaries lower than fast food wage slaves. How do these corrupt institutions get away with such fraud and continue to gather such extraordinary profits?

The answers fall to the wicked brews of publicity, marketing and advertising. also called college rankings, mixed into the lead boil ideology of the Amerikan Dream-Nightmare – blended with the bitter spices of Neo-Marxist gibberish concerning equal opportunities, harassment free safe spaces and challenges for social justice.

As the college ranking system changes annually, the administrators invest heavily in corporate marketers to advertise their university or college’s success stories. Students and professors willingly give free advertising for the administrators on their universities’ main web pages.

If one visits any higher education campus, the visitor will spot low paid student workers giving tours of the campus to lots of families and prospective students. Most of the families are from the old American working class and middle class, people who worked hard, but were able to save some capital for their kids’ college education.

In our dying Amerikan, imperial economy, the Amerikan university artifice has ultimately transformed itself into another ponzi-pyramid scheme. It robs from the marks that innocently use its same services – the students.

The Amerikan university institution is now up there in the sublime racket stratosphere with private prisons, security firms, check cashing outlets, pawn shop rebates, smart phone monthly payment plans, health and life insurance options, Division of Motor Vehicle rates, sales and payroll taxes, utility fees, civil forfeiture, public comment allotments at City Hall, jail bond bail payments, congressional gerrymandering of voting districts, TV infotainment, work application drug testing-background check fees, TSA airport security theater, police internal affairs, US imperial human rights policies, W-2 employment forms, DUI checkpoints, happy hour bar prices, cover charges, restaurant buffet lunch menus and political elections.

Is it any wonder that the only public institution that some Americans still respect is the US Military, and that the only cultural space left where some Americans actually can feel some flicker of dignity – is at church?

The Harvard Corporation works for its graduating elite students. But what will the other students do with their futile degrees at lesser ranked universities and colleges? They often do not have access to good jobs, and then after graduating, the students owe lots of loaned money to the banks?

The Amerikan Empire has released the furies of outrage and exasperation upon us all. With the Higher Education monopoly exposed, learn a real skill while getting paid – and save your dignity.

capitalism modern cityabsolut-capitalismcapitalism breadCAPITALISM predatorsOpportunity for allEnjoy Capitalism

We all possess the marks of our future corpses.

We are all truly homeless, for our final home is in realm of extinction. We humans now survive inside the hells of our previous creations. One of our current hells possesses the name of Capitalism, and it respects no one – except those of the fortunate few who possess grand quantities of capital, or money. And ultimately, we all must fend and forage for our basic survival. All alone we decay, every human for him or herself, as we all will die – alone.

The author of this blog has traveled to many nations and regions across the globe, and in the end, he cannot do another voyage. Capitalism was everywhere triumphant, the terrible poverty was all around: the street children sleep on every continent. The poor people just gave up the ghost, and lied down the streets – waiting to die. It was too much to experience.

Among this actual terrorism of poverty and misery, there were always a few super wealthy people that lived in multiple story apartments, or in mini-castles of twenty-five rooms surrounded by severe walls with thug security. Legal trades and illegal trades, no outsider could tell where those elite crooks had made their loot money. But like the famous French writer of the nineteenth-century, Honore Balzac, quipped, ‘behind every great fortune, are even greater, hidden crimes.’

The other wealthy muggers across the world have represented the agents of the State, or the government. Those bum parasites comprised top politicians, high military officers, media moguls, and a few sell-out, good selling celebrities, added for public taste. All of them mixed together to bake the infernal pot of injustice, pride, inhospitality and sociopathic greed.

I write from the entrails of human history’s most notorious world empire. Some Americans continue to say that we don’t have terrible poverty rates, as those third world countries. There is even a smaller group, yet a substantial one, who certify that the Amerikan Empire is still the land of opportunity, and that us complainers: ‘need to get a job, grab the work ethic, or even, start are our own businesses.’ If our hard lives were only that easy…

Those brainwashed Empire supporters believe that every American comes with 25 grand in capital, to either begin a college education onto the path of prosperity, or embrace the hard work struggle in attaining the American Dream.

For most of us, we see the current Amerikan Nightmare – with no rainbow over the clouds. We won’t fall for the Wizard of Oz, Hollywood story happy ending. We know that the hideous mark of the wage slave is upon our foreheads.

Karl Marx successfully predicted that as Capitalism encroached within every corner and crack on the Earth, the entire political economic system would transform into more outrageous distortions, operate faster and faster, and create profit scams over every conceivable material object on the Earth, and even devour and cannibalize its own worker ants. At least Marx was right about a few things.

Capitalism under its contemporary, global monopoly stage, operates under the whims of the global rich elites with the government apparatus, State enablers. Those two teams are always united and banded together, and continually wage war against the rest of the world population.

The political hacks like to harp on ‘democracy,’ but there is no democracy in the workhouse of Capitalism. Capitalism is one of the most heinous dictatorships existing in our contemporary life.

The corporate directors-owners and their political buddies simply parasite off our lives. They hire us without work contracts or make us sign flim-flam ones. They also expect us to arrive to the work site on their time, so they can suck the life out of us during their scheduled work day.

The owner and his family clique can leave work whenever they want, nonetheless, we the workers have to stay on the job and finish our ‘shift.’ We do have unpaid lunches however. Is it not ironic that they want us, ‘laborers,’ to give them at least two weeks notice before leaving, yet they can fire at us at will anytime – and for any reason?

As Marx also stated, the most pressing actual war for all of us is the class war. The political-economic rulers have declared a most vicious war against us. Have we then, opted to fight for our own survival, and stand on our duty for own self-defense?

A few have. But most of the human population has resigned themselves to wage slavery. Most of those people will remain wage slaves for the rest of their lives, and they have lost their final shreds of dignity and honor – nor do they particularly care.

A few others have gone the route of vagabond-traveling, street busking, or even begging on the streets. At least those jobs are tax-free. We might not like their methods, but they are the intelligent ones. They know that there is no future for them in this unjust world. The owners can simply wait and collect the profits, while they laugh at the multitude of unemployed, underemployed and pathetic wage slave losers begging for work.

Recently, I took a crappy retail job because I needed the money – in order to pay rent, utility bills, health bills, auto bills, food bills and other miscellaneous fines and fees, inclusive of the taxation scam. Not surprisingly, I worked for a dishonest and disreputable lowlife, and here is the punch line: I received the same hourly wage that I earned 20 years ago, when I had worked at other crap service sector jobs. After so many years of 5% annual inflation, living costs have more than doubled – yet I was receiving the identical wage from another historical epoch!

The working class is dead, and never to rise. The owner class has successfully eliminated most of the good, blue-collar jobs, except for a few, well-paid professional services. The good job list has included donut cops and prison guards, university-college and hospital administrators, government bureaucrats, corporate attorneys and corporate accountants, doctors in private practice, skilled repairmen, the electrical maintenance fields, software-hardware engineering, master mechanics, plumbers, builders and welders, the specialized trades in transport-distribution-oil-mining-gas work, and of course, all those executive positions in the banking, financial, real estate and insurance scam services. Did I forget sports and entertainment celebrities?

The other lucky ones with good job opportunities are the ex-high class students, graduates of the Amerikan liberal, elite universities, such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton – and sometimes inclusive of the other Ivy-leaguers and the western false-ivies, such as Chicago, Northwestern, Rice, Berkeley and Stanford. Most of those ex-students, the favored alumni, are the common exceptions to the bad job, debt-wage slavery life.

Marx referred to the lowest social class under capitalism, as the lumpen proletariat, or the ‘lumpens.’ The rich, wealthy elites are transforming all of us into this class. This social class of people implies the lowlifes who perform the odd, temporary work, crap jobs for cheap money.

This low class of people hangout in bars or churches, and they often drift from town to town, or even become home bums. The real dishonest ones move into petty crime, such as fraud and street hustling, bank robbing, shabby gangster scams, or they manipulate the government handout system in order to grab a little ‘free government money.’ Those fakers especially like ‘disability’ payments ad infinitum. Many lumpens end up locked away in one Amerika’s numerous prison gulags – or they sell their body-soul property to the US military.

I remember the other recruits in my military unit. They definitely did not represent the ‘well off.’ Some were in the military because the judge gave them the choice between ‘service,’ or the ‘lock up.’ Others had different kids from different women. Some dudes just had no good prospects in life – they were from the low breeding of bad luck: urban or rural poverty. Was it not absurd that the lowest social class became the main assassins for the US Empire of Sociopaths, meaning that they were fighting for the actual elites – who had originally destroyed their families through low wages and criminal neglect?

There is no Revolution on the way. The union bosses, like their politician bosses, are on the legal bribe and kickback system, and they actually earn salaries similar to corporate executives!

No matter what the Marxist sect nut jobs scream, there is no class consciousness, since many of us sleep, defecate, eat and drink alone. We must resign ourselves to the bad death through overwork or criminal neglect from no work.

Capitalism is on the one-way, death grip – tightening real hard. This utterly rotten system will create a more horrible, intense burning Hell, which awaits for all us. We can expect periodic homelessness, hunger bouts, and falling into sickness.

Meanwhile, the prison doors remain open – and once the guards usher us in, they will lock us up forever. We will eventually die there, like so many other elderly prisoners before us and after us. Some of us have opted for the sweet death of opiates and other hard drugs – hoping to die quicker than expected.

Once we see the lying politicians, of whatever political persuasion, speaking about offers of phony economic-political concessions – then watch out! This is one of their criminal traps and ploys to scare us into submission. But this does tell us one thing – they are the ones scared and weak.

Street fighting man or woman – grab your gun! Better to lose our mental chains. We shall die with dignity and honor.

There exist certain unmistakable symbols and ideas, which define a political movement or an ideology.

For Communism, it is the hammer and sickle over the bright red flag, the labor gulag and Stalin’s execution lists. For Fascism, it is the strutting dictator stapled with phony medals, goose stepping SS soldiers, the swastika and the death camps, experts in the art of murder. For Liberalism, it is the grey institutional, corporate-bank building filled with bureaucratic drones, the local white stone courthouse, the police station, jail-prison with bars, the office of the local sheriff, and the brown brick, state school, with yellow school buses added for a little touch of class.

But what exists for Anarchy? We have the classic A with the circle around it. We have the long N shaped symbol with an arrow moving upward and a circle around that. And we have a black flag with some red in it – with part of the flag having a star, or even a fist, or whatever. There is also the Anarchist Black Cross, a type of Greek Cross or a Medical Cross, which usually has a clenched fist on the top of the vertical bar. We can also add a punk looking individual to the mix, and some Anarchists have even appropriated the classic black and white pirate flag with the skull and crossed bones. But there is an idea that maintains its constancy within all Anarchy practices: the Class War.

How many memories and bad experiences do we continue to hold from all of our crap jobs history – or where we still trudge and grudge our lives away?

All of my diverse jobs in my personal life were bad ones, including the one that I held for the most labor time of my life: as a lowly paid, graduate teaching assistant at some western land-grant American university. My second longest work stretch was my time surviving in the US Military. I was lucky to not get kicked out of that one.

My employment history mostly shows a shattered list of short work stints, about a few months at the most, and in the end, the owner bastards often fired me. I am damn proud of this spotted work record too. I have openly lived my life as a true warrior inside of the Class War. I have never traded nor soiled my honor, nor my dignity, to a boss-manager parasite.

Believe it or not, I’ve actually worked hard – if the job interested me. I have always arrived on time to work, and while inside of the wage struggle, I got straight into the labor intensity. I have never liked just sitting or standing around, and I always tried to find some initiative or creativity on my own in order to learn more things. But in the end, we all live under the loaded shotgun of the Class Struggle. The loaded shotgun has always aimed at us – the regular workers, the drinking class, the working class.

The commandeering class parasites don’t see it that way however. They want to avoid the most work as possible in order to collect a higher salary with lots of benefits – the worker ants damned! Those losers constantly delegate the hated work jobs, often cleaning or organizing tasks, onto the lower worker peons. Those hacks also have the ear of the owners. And the owners only want one thing – profits!

This is the Class Struggle: the owner wants more work out of the wage slaves, while also hoping to cut down the employee wages in order to increase profit margins; meanwhile, the workers want to conserve their energy for life outside of work, while hoping for a measly pay raise – maybe some time in the distant future.

Since its ugly surfacing some hundreds of years ago, Capitalism has waged a most ruthless war or struggle against the lives of most humans. Whether we like it or not, we all must survive in the Class Struggle, and fight until the bitter end – inside of the Class War.

The owners holding the capital have waged a relentless war against us. Our wage slave jobs slowly rot out our bodies, and eventually clog our vital energies, and so we must fight back. We battle the owners every day on the job, or we fight back as consumers against their crap products, or we even expose the owners’ dishonest practices through writing scathing reviews on the Internet. There are many more ways to struggle.

There is also sabotage. Sabotage does not just imply purposely breaking the machines; although, in extreme situations, this works too. It can also mean following every single rule in the business in order to slow down production or any system of overwork. It can even mean informing the state authorities about the owner’s negligence of the laws. Yes, we can use the divide and conquer method against our foes, since they have continually used similar methods against us.

Another sabotage tactic is giving out the product for free to customers in order to show our appreciation for choosing the business! This has also worked splendidly in the past. The owner crooks can lambast all they want about stealing, but this is just giving the customer a bit more appreciation. Customer service is king – and especially under Global Monopoly Capitalism that truly rules our evil world.

Capitalism steals more than our wages. The system robs us through its flimsy tax scams, which we lower orders can never use, such as unemployment and social security money. In the United States, most employers reject the unemployment claims of fired workers most of the time – and the corrupt judges generally rubber stamp the boss’ dirty deeds. We can only receive some federal, state and city back taxes, if we make less than the poverty wage. Anyway, the poverty wage is so low that it exists as a worthless system for any wage earner.

The thugs in the US federal government are getting a little nervous however. They recently started an Earned Income Credit scam that allows the peons to keep a little crumbs from the ‘taxed money.’ Nice try. Those band aids never help.

Capitalism also robs the lowly paid wage workers grievously through stealing their surplus labor. Every day that we arrive to work and labor hard, we actually create a surplus product ready for sale. Our unpaid surplus labor creates a surplus of value, or wealth, for the owners. Yet, we only receive a low wage that barely pays for our dismal lives of bill paying, taxation and basic cost of living, such as food, housing and clothes.

Nowadays, many wage slaves have to work two or three jobs in order to live in an sub-standard apartment. Landlords have also become desperate within this capitalist shell game, and in many small cities and towns, ‘with jobs,’ they have lifted the prices for basic living into the American megalopolis price zones of New York and San Francisco.

Many Amerikan landlords have transformed themselves into property pimps who push anyone who can’t pay their exorbitant rents into the poorer or rural suburbs, such as the young, lumpen poor and minorities.  The displaced poor then have to flush their money into urban scam ‘public transportation,’ which costs more than actually driving a car around the city. Other wage slaves living in the more rural parts will have to dig deeper in their pockets for paying gas costs, state mandated taxes, state mandated insurance and auto part-repair bills. And these people still have to buy decent food, wear cool clothes – and possibly enjoy their scant leisure time.

The owners have successfully colonized and scammed our leisure activities. Most of our ‘fun activities’ cost something: bars, restaurants, cafes, concerts, festivals, amusement parks, outdoor sports, parties, lotteries-casino gambling, etc. We have to throw our money away to another group of owners in the ‘service industry,’ and whose members often represent the more noxious elements of the small business owner class. Going out and enjoying our lives, during ‘our time off,’ is not so cheap anymore.

We must structure our crowded lives around our ‘jobs.’ which slowly degenerate our meager existence. The boss-owner group can take off whenever he or she wants, and do whatever he or she wants during work hours: a golf game, a two-hour lunch, a visit to family, personal shopping, or even just a light nap or refreshing break. We continue working, and worst of all, the job steals away our precious personal time – and sadly, our fleeting youth. The owners makes the work-life schedules, not us.

The owner-bosses like to take multiple week vacations throughout the work year. Few wage slaves get the old, two-week paid vacation from the distant past. If you ask for it, it tells the boss that you want fewer hours – and he or she will soon terminate your employment.

Most wage work doesn’t even have work contracts anymore. The owner can fire the employees at will, and they often do just that – for whatever reasons. There are so many other wage slaves, and especially young ones, banging on the doors. The owner can just go down the list and call up the most pliable worker.

In some service professions in the US, such as restaurants-bars, distributing centers, cleaning services and construction-repair work, the bosses have a massive pool of illegal immigrant workers to exploit. Other businesses can use a pool of legal, foreign visa students-workers. The owners inside the education, nursing and software industries exploit this privilege all the time. I have yet to see the federal, state or local governments punish those dishonest owner crooks who prefer to hire non-Americans. If you can hire a foreigner to do the same job, worker harder, and for less pay – than why not?

Ultimately, more and more owners refuse to pay the full amount of salary when they fire employees, or when the employees quit. Fighting for the rest of the pay is simply not worth it, since the legal system always backs up the owner class, and the proof of outright theft is on the employee. How many employees have the time or energy to fight back? If the wage slave does not have any family money to help him or her, then he or she had better find another crushing, soul killing job – or he or she will then join the ranks of the homeless ‘bums,’ or drifters.

The worst part of the story is still not over. As this Global Monopoly Capitalist system becomes more outrageous and more brutal, so there emerges a smaller pool of available jobs. The only jobs left will be those high paying administrator-commandeering manager-executive class jobs. Those people do no useful work whatsoever, except attend meetings and pass e-mails. Those jobs are for the people who have attended highly rated universities and have some wealthy family contacts. This leaves the rest of us thrown into the Capitalist Maelstrom.

The lucky ones will have some important manual skill where they can find work as ‘independent contractors’: electricians, builders, plumbers, welders, or simply fix-it-all, jack of all trades, people.

For the rest of us, losers, the future enters a biting darkness. I include myself in this group, since PhD bums in history were stupid enough to believe that there were jobs for intellectually smart-street wise dummies. In the past there were job prospects, but the sociopaths that hold power in the Amerikan Empire don’t care anymore. Why should they? Most PhD recipients have transformed themselves into pathetic cowards. How can any PhD with any sense of honor and dignity work as an adjunk, part-time teacher for less pay that any McJob dweeb?

What can we do to forestall such a monstrous future waiting for us?

We must embrace the Class War, since the elites, the top owner class within the boards of directorships of the major corporations and banks, including their top political class minions, have already declared war against us – from the beginning of human history. Before it was the master-slave relationship, now it is the owner-wage slave relationship.

We have only two choices ahead. First, We could bow our heads and keep looking for different work situations, and if we have family money to help us out, then we can survive with odd jobs.

The other option is that we can reject work altogether and just become traveling bums or drifters – like the hobos of the Great Depression. Yes, I mean drop out of the work force, travel around to different parts of the country, and find the odd job for some desperate cash.

Yet even this old ‘job search’ system is dying. Most of the ugliest, slave-like jobs either require a background check of a few pages, inclusive of a drug test, or they are only reserved for the illegal immigrant slaves who will desperately do any job, including septic cleaning and slaughterhouse killing.

The Class War continues: always and forever!
