The Underground Lady [Page Thirty-Six]

All present economic theories are bankrupt, intellectually and morally.  None of them take the worker into account as anything more than a piece of the dumb machine, less than that.  These “theories” are little more than propaganda devices for the global investment class.  There is no substance to them and they should be ignored, vilified, torn apart until not a shred remains.

**

**

The last stand is coming, between workers and their employers.  Violence will be necessary.  Some will be able to stomach this, some will not.  For those workers who are not willing to fight, or who are too old or too infirm, they should stay on the sidelines.  And they should not throw doubt on the motives of the engaged.

**

**

We must fight the corporation with everything we have.  We must attack it on every level and in every way.  It deserves no quarter, and no mercy.  There is no half-measured way to move forward.  Either we will utterly destroy the corporation as it is presently constructed, and replace it with something unrecognizable, total in its alterity, or we will become slaves to the present structure and perish as free people.

**

**

There is no compromise against the tyranny of the private world.  To save a healthy public domain, we must go to war against private interests.

**

**

For those who have doubts about our chances for victory, I have nothing to say, nothing to offer.  They are already part of the evil that surrounds us.  Do not listen to them—they speak with the devil’s tongue.

**

Private capital is the enemy, in all its forms, and our methods of resistance and attack should be just as varied—cultural, political, local, global, intellectual, and hard and real as an iron pipe.  Whatever is necessary to the situation, that is what should be tried, that is what should be used against the enemy.  There are no out-of-bounds methods.  None.

**

**

Break into politicians’ email, hound them at their doorsteps, find out where CEO’s live, where they send their children to school, hound them, hound them, and hound them.  And if they complain, tell them that things could be much worse.  We could come for them in the middle of the night.  That, too, might be necessary.  And even more.

**

**

Steal from where you work, embezzle, rob, carry off equipment and funds, submit hours you don’t work, advocate for all manner of improvements, whether it seems absolutely vital or not, find out who your boss is fucking, get the evidence you need to make a case, whatever kind of case, against your superiors (they all embezzle, too)…and never let up, not for a second.  Hunt down and grab every last inch of influence, every drop of power that you can, and save it.  For the coming storm will not be easy.  We will require every bit of leverage we can lay our hands upon.  Hoard it, and then use it, use it wisely and for the greatest impact.  But don’t wait too long to use it.  Remember, the system can suspend its own rules whenever it wishes to fight—it obeys no absolute rules, and neither should we. 

**

**

Install viruses in the computer systems where you work, on the websites of corporatist organizations, attack think tanks and economists and their lawyers.  No one is exempt, no one is sacred.  If they speak for the corporation, if they do its bidding, treat them mercilessly, treat them with no respect, embarrass and challenge everything they say, every action they take.  This is not about “reason.”  This is a fight to the death.

**

**

Don’t trust millionaire “progressive” commentators.  They are as much part of the enemy as corporate lobbyists and other arch conservatives.

**

**

Get personal, find out about the private lives of the corporatists, especially the conservatives.  Broadcast their sins.  They are decadent and without any real moral guide, so this will be easy.  All the rich wallow in their own filth and decay—it’s just a matter of finding out their particular brand of grotesque private behavior, which they surround with layers of distraction.  Punch through.

**

**

Organize workers, young people, immigrants, organize your neighbors.  Harrass corporations on every front.  Issue bulletins, send out thousands of notices, detail their corruption, their indifference to the environment, their destructiveness.  Flood them with letters, with complaints, with threats.  Go public.  Go public again.  And again.  Never let up.

**

**

Don’t accept the argument that we are all dependent on corporations.  That is the slave-master reminding the slave of his position.  Treat that, especially that, with the utmost contempt.  And those who mouth such shit for the corporation, treat them as enemies.  Isolate and marginalize them, push them into the gutter where they belong.

**

**

We have the Demon on our side, the Underground Lady reminds me.  Yes, we do.  Use the Demon, use it for your future.  Or there will be nothing but a tyrannical corporatist nightmare for centuries to come.

**

Military flares burn for a very long time, and very hot.  They can easily set fire to the tar-saturated roofs of most commercial buildings, especially the roofs of companies that try to break unions, or prevent workers from organizing, or retaliate against organizers, or bargain in bad faith.  This is a fact.  As for what I am suggesting…do what you will.

**

**

Love those that you love.  Spread love wherever and whenever you can.  But when it comes to the corporation, when it comes to the fight, make a stone of your heart and set it against everything that would turn your love into mere compensation for a lifetime of misery.  Never sympathize with the corporation and its agents.  Sympathize with workers.  Pry them away from the machine, and slash and slash away at it.
