Elmer in Dairyland

Between college and graduate school, I worked for a year in a factory in Verona, Wisconsin, which is a few miles and a paradigm shift outside of Madison. It wasn’t the worst place to work. We had a union. We had benefits. We chopped, folded and riveted large sheets of metal and turned them into the air diffusers that you can see in the ceilings of theaters and other large buildings.

I did the night shift for a while with a guy named Elmer. In his fifties, Elmer had been a farmer and hunter for most of his life, and in 1974 was operating a giant sheet metal sheer. Elmer would cut it, and I would stack it. After our orders were filled, we’d sit around and get drunk, because there wasn’t any supervision at night. Sometimes we got drunk before the orders were filled, and we were both lucky to escape the sheer with our fingers still attached to our hands.

As we drank peppermint schnapps at 4 a.m., I listened to Elmer’s stories about his life with great interest. Most of my friends in Madison had parents who worked for the government or the university. Elmer seemed to be as smart as any of them, but with a life experience that put him on another planet.

It was obvious that Elmer hated his job. He wanted to be outside, trapping muskrats and selling their pelts. I hated the job too, and ruminated about why anyone would think that hard work was a virtue. What was worse--having a job, or not having a job? If you worked eight hours a day and then got drunk, or watched television, to forget about the grinding assembly line, what kind of a life was that? What about raising your kids? Taking part in your community? Culture? Why not organize labor in such a way that that everyone had a useful job for four hours, and then could pursue their own happiness? Was there any lack of things that needed to be done? Was there any lack of people who wanted to make contribution in some way? What was the point of overworking some while underworking others?

 

I thought of Elmer as a friend. That he wasn’t became evident one night when Elmer and I got drunker than usual, and he accused me of looking down on him. “I hate college boys,” he snarled. He hated the entire University of Wisconsin...

What is the difference between manipulated, co opted, SHOCK TROOPS, rednecks, know nothings who BUY INTO THE CORRUPT CLASS PRINCIPLE OF EXCLUSIONS, SCAPEGOATING, and the class ideologues of liberal and conservative parties who also are manipulated, co opted to support class whores, class shills, equal opportunity fascists, and the Orwellian, totalitarian class despotism, which both share.  The latter is completely clueless, racist and Fascist, but the democratic party itself has degenerated into support for Fascist austerity, Fascist Capitalism, Fascist Empire, Global Fascist military alliances through Nato, and embraces Fascist Zionism in Israel.  They are only slightly more educated, but equally clueless about their role as enablers of Fascism, of fascist shock troops, which like Nazi Germany, will turn on them, deservedly so for offering no solutions,  appeasing Fascism, falsely labeled as  "socialists", when in fact they are cousins, class whores and class thugs producing the same totalitarian outcome.


First question:  To the clueless liberals is to ask WHY THEY THINK LIBERALISM IS AN OPEN SOCIAL IDEOLOGY, WHEN IT CLEARLY EMBRACES CLASS EXCLUSION, CLASS PRIVILEGE, AND FASCISM, reflecting the historical fact that Liberalism was born as a class ideology, betraying the social Enlightenment, social patriotism.   Social thinkers and their ideas were co opted, inverted by  class whores like Clinton, Obama, all equal opportunity Fascists, reflecting the generic degenerating class principle which holds true for  ALL CLASS PARTIES, whose false centers shifts, devolves into creeping Fascism, to Defend Fascist Capitalism.


Second question:  Since the central failure of the whole of class history is the false embrace of the Orwellian, totalitarian class principle and its class hierarchies, linked to the generic Patriarchal class mechanism, WHY DOES ANYONE EMBRACE CLASS PARTIES AT ALL,  EXPECTING SOCIAL OUTCOMES, SOCIAL POWER, when the central function of all class hierarchies is to convert, INVERT, CO OPT, CORRUPT NEGATE SOCIAL POWER AND SOCIAL DEMANDS, ALL SOCIAL BETRAYALS, FOR CLASS POWER, FOR PARASITICAL RULING CLASSES.


Third question:   If all class systems are basically crippled, corrupted social outcomes, that degenerate over time into class tyranny, class tyrants, totalitarianism, its present form, FASCISM, under Late Western Capitalism, isn't it time for the world to realize THAT THEIR SUPPORT FOR CLASS PARTIES ENSLAVES THEM, CORRUPTS, BETRAYS THEM BY THEIR OWN HAND,  VOTING FOR CLASS POLITICIANS, that can only be reversed, negated by social movements who embrace real social parties.  It must embrace a social agenda along the lines of the Social Matriarchy before class history began, continued in the Social Enlightenment, and later in its socialist movements to dismantle all class parties, all class hierarchies, and the Patriarchal class mechanim itself, by setting up INDIVIDSIBLE, INDEPENDENT SOCIAL MIDDLE CLASS/LAYERS, free from corrupt class hierarchies.   Real independence is the principle of economic, social control  in wealth and universal human rights, as preached by all,  and class ideologues  who falsely  claim allegiance to social principles.  This social principle can even be seen through our Pledge of Allegiance:   ".......INDIVISIBLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL".   That social principle was co opted, corrupted, inverted, through class elites and their deforming class hierarchies to mean CLASS CONTROL, TOTALITARIAN CONTROL, NEGATION OF SOCIAL CONTROL OVER WEALTH AND SOCIAL LABOR FOR RULING FASCIST CLASSES:
