…. The overthrow of the lifesaving, human rights won by the people in the Roe vs. Wade decision and the repression of the bodies of those belonging to oppressed genders is the culmination of decades of planning by Evangelicals and their allies. The Evangelical movement itself is a construct that serves white supremacy and patriarchy. Democrats offer no solution and have historically done nothing to defend people’s rights and autonomy while Republicans actively fight them. Both are the party of Wall Street, serving capitalism and the racism and patriarchy it rests upon. Our rights are not in safe hands when we expect members of Congress and presidents to uphold them. These people do not serve poor, working class, and oppressed peoples. They serve corporations, and rich shareholders. They serve themselves.

However, despite having the force of militarized police and the military proper on their side, they are few, vastly surrounded by the juggernaut that is a multinational body of poor, working class, and oppressed people. Our rights, our justice, and our future are in our hands. We must fight, organize, and win the power that is rightfully ours by grinding into dust the racist, genocidal, theocratic power structure and its servants. In the words of Karl Marx,

“Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.”

Poor, working class, and oppressed peoples unite! Together we will usher in a world of respect, dignity, and the flowering of a free and thriving humanity.
