Why are lefties protesting Trump?

It’s nice to see ones capable of forming a sentence, other than reeee.

from leftist-daily-reminders.tumblr.com/post/155208709988/how-is-a-general-strike-effective-as-a-protest

By not working, not attending classes, and refusing to consume or buy anything, you are making a statement that you reject your current material conditions. If a strike of large enough scope is achieved, it will remind the ruling class and the working class who the driving force of the system really is (the workers, since without them the wheels can’t turn), and would act as the opening salvo of a larger resistance movement. A general strike on January 20 won’t stop Trump from being President or topple capitalism – but it will create a symbol for people to rally behind, build momentum for the larger resistance, and rob Trump’s inauguration of all dignity and legitimacy.

>implying management isn’t a skilled form of labour

The big spanner in Communism.

If anyone could start a factory and run it successfully, the workers would just start their own. But that’s capitalism, isn’t it, kids?

Instead, it looks like adult babies are throwing their rattle out the pram because they didn’t get their way. Securing Trump a second term from anyone who actually has to go to work, and can’t afford to protest democracy with a mob. Protesting is a mob action. It’s anti-democratic, because why is your group any more deserving of an opinion? That’s the issue with modern leftism.

Also, robots.

OT

It’s impossible to strike a job you don’t have.

It’s impossible to strike a job taken overseas, locally.

It’s impossible to run a strike of citizens with illegals.

It’s impossible for the low IQ to have any kind of employment prospects in the coming high IQ future of society. Someone’s getting fucked. Punch your Trump card now and save yourselves.

shrug lol toldyaso fuck you bateman

VIVE LA TRANSITION.

You overplayed the best possible hand.

Classic liberals committed cultural suicide and now they’re going down after it.
You got what you wanted, idiots. China is rubbing its hands. India switching on its global IT division. All cos you wanted to be lazy, a little more time off and a little more pay. Ironically, you won’t retire now. Ever.

You have a right to the fruit of your labour. There is no transfer of property than productivity.

You are signing a permit to use the machines to provide a fixed outcome, aka employment contract. You do not own the machines. The person who purchased them, owns the machines. Engels never got rid of his factories, did he?

If you urinate in a public park, you do not own the park.
If you use a computer in the library, you do not own the library.
If you work a machine, you do not own the factory.

Property is 9/10 of the law, retards.

What you describe is technically rape, also a civil matter in the definition of theft, the forcible seizure of property. As for the criminal, if there is no property, there is no crime such as rape, since we own our bodies, primarily, including our labour.

Link: Academia keeps down the working man

https://reason.com/archives/2015/10/27/why-intellectuals-hate-capital

So the intellectuals have always sided with the aristocrats to maintain a society where the businesspeople were kept down. You might say that capitalism was the first time that businesspeople caught a break. Because of Adam Smith and the philosophy that came along with that, the industrial revolution began this huge upward surge of prosperity.

They’re the equivalent of the courtiers saying whatever is needed.

Under 35? No pension for you.

http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/pensions/article-2787888/how-state-pension-funded-cash-runs.html

…Cash reserves in the National Insurance Fund have plunged in the past few years and could come up short as soon as next year, forcing the Government to dip into money coming in from general taxation, according to the research.

Baby Boomers need their nudist sex cruises.

The Centre for Policy Studies report warns under-45 they face tax hikes and a later retirement age, and under-35s they can expect the state pension to be scrapped altogether….

Even better, give them a pitying look and smirk no matter what they say.
Oh no who could have foretold such a disaster…
I know exactly what I'm doing, says the INTJ

From the wonderfully titled “The End Should be Nigh“;

Timing aside, with the Fund gone, there would be no justification for HMRC to continue to collect the insurance premium that is NICs.

There is a little good news. A little.

Allow me to draw your attention, dear Reader, to Section 5.4 Fund Exhaustion

…Fund exhaustion, whenever it arises, would be of considerable symbolic significance. It would confirm that even with all the recent cost saving measures (such as sending the SPA into rapid retreat) the forthcoming single-tier State Pension is unsustainable. Either benefits are further watered-down, or Generation Y, [20] in particular, will face rising taxes. This is unreasonable; Generation Y is already faced with unaffordable housing, college debts to repay, fragmented careers and earnings stagnation, and far thinner occupational pensions (DC, not DB, bar the public sector) than their baby boomer parents.[21] It is perhaps no surprise then that the 25-34 years old age group (i.e. core Generation Y) are the least likely to live in households in the top total wealth band. Conversely, only 4% of individuals aged 55-64 years (i.e. baby boomers), and 4% aged 65 or older, live in households in the lowest total wealth band.

[20] = Under-35s.

It gets better.

..In extremis, perhaps we should gradually put an end Corporation Tax altogether, replacing it with consumer taxes?…

crying laughter lmao

Let’s see The Guardian Media Group and its readers evade those, with their lifestyle of conspicuous consumption.
In short, fuck Baby Boomers.  I cannot stress this enough.
If you’re new and think that’s too far or unfair, see Best Post. In short, I refuse to work my arse off until I drop dead so they can spend half their extended lifespan fucking around and spreading STDs on every continent.

They can’t pull the wool over our eyes for much longer.

They’ll starve anyway, idiots failed to not abort have enough children, expecting they could sponge off other people’s – creating a ‘tragedy of the commons’ because everyone had the same ‘bright’ idea and children ARE the original pension plan, after all. They work for you when you cannot. We’ll vote to drop their “entitlements” when we realise en masse how they screwed us on every conceivable front.
