It’s
 worth pointing out that the poverty rate mentioned in the picture is 
relative poverty. By law everyone in Norway is entitled to shelter and 
subsistence support including basic health care.
Poor Norwegians, in other words, receive far more support from society than poor Americans do.

Socialism works. The only reason republicans want capitalism is so the rich can hoard all the wealth while poor people suffer. Vote Bernie!

They need organization, mass support, an agreed-upon list of demands, related demonstrations, etc. It’s not as easy as 10k people across the country at multiple different jobs not showing up - despite what you think, that will be seen as 10k independent occurrences and will result in several thousand firings for no call/no shows with no other notice paid. Even if this wildcat general strike gets enough traction to be seen as an actual threat (which is unlikely as just a viral tumblr post), the government will simply respond with arrests and brutality as they have in the past, and no part of this post prepares people for that Instead, participate in the Earth Strike on January 15th to demand corporate and government action against climate change And don’t just decide to do it on your own - talk to your coworkers, get in touch with local unions and your IWW branch, talk to local chapters of climate activism groups like Rising Tide, 350.org, and Transition Towns to organize concurrent demonstrations and actions, and spread the word as much as you can so we can get some steam behind this in the 2 months we have to prepare “Fuck Work Day” would probably just make things worse while scaring people off from participating in the real coordinated action less than a month later Please signal boost this post!

Americans are sycophantic and cowardly when it comes to fighting corporate power. Our entire culture is permeated with a corporate ethos. We claim to hate tyranny and authoritarianism by the government, yet we have no problem with corporate tyranny and corporate measures to spy on us, tell us what to do, and tell us what we can think and say.  At least people in other countries can flip cars over and burn things and show their anger when corporate power tries to take over their country or when companies want to slash benefits. It’s also interesting that we are one of the hardest working (in hours) Western nation yet we are one of the most unproductive . who would have thought that treating your workers right is actually beneficial in the longterm for a companies interests.

American workers as individuals and the labor movement as a whole is so demoralized that the average worker is convinced that working in an at will state is fine, that unions are bad, that collective bargaining and labor rights are a  thing of the past, and that the rich are this benevolent group that they too can be a part of if they just work hard enough and save. Americans are sycophantic and cowardly when it comes to fighting corporate power. Our entire culture is permeated with a corporate ethos. We claim to hate tyranny and authoritarianism by the government, yet we have no problem with corporate tyranny and corporate measures to spy on us, tell us what to do, and tell us what we can think and say.  At least people in other countries can flip cars over and burn things and show their anger when corporate power tries to take over their country or when companies want to slash benefits. It’s also interesting that we are one of the hardest working (in hours) Western nation yet we are one of the most unproductive . who would have thought that treating your workers right is actually beneficial in the longterm for a companies interests.

Redneck Revolt is a good group organizing in these areas around this identity and history. Yeah regions where mining, agriculture, and similar industries are dominant tend to have a history of socialist organizing and labor agitation, funny how that works i love how many people are commenting on this basically saying it’s an oxymoron for rednecks to be communists like… in what universe is it an oxymoron for… actual poor and working-class people… to be invested in an ideology movement that centers around working-class/labor struggle… lmao ???? literally the only reason why there has been a shift in later years is cus of fear mongering to the point where capitalist criticism has become a taboo even for lower class poor people. like many the southern states are some of the poorest states in usa?? “Let’s show these fascists what a couple of hillbillies can do!”  -Woody Guthrie coming from  a non-informed point of view i feel like once again this is Reagan’s fault because he targeted workers unions a good deal…  People are saying its a oxymoron because “redneck” is usually synonymous with “racist/stupid af” in america. And “racist/stupid af” in america tends to steer very far right. But there is a actually a whole population of “redneck” that isnt racist at all. They’re actually pretty well educated, theyre just poor and do poor people stuff. They’re the ones who end up introducing black people to white people shit. Like moonshine, mudding and camping. Theyre a trip to hang around. Theres actually a lot of overlap in the “redneck” and the “hood” culture (large tight knit families, general disdain for authorities, love of bbq…etc), but the rich white people in power dont want people to know that because if the all the poor people reguardless of color realize they have shared interests band together and raise hell. Its over for the 1%. So they try their hardest to emphasize and exaggerate the cultural differences, in hopes of convincing the low income disenfranchized whites to vote right. I LOVE capitalist critical Appalachian culture. One of the first things i learned that fueled my interest was the origin of the word ‘redneck.’ Coal mining was HUGE from the mid 1700s to the early 1900s in states like Virginia and Pennsylvania as coal was a primary source of fuel for a lotta shit. Unsurprisingly, mine owners were capitalist pigs and exploited the hell outta coal miners. Like, paying them by the pound of coal they brought in rather than by hours worked, paying them in vouchers that could only be used at the store owned by the mining company, and offering no kind of health assistance when workers would inevitably succumb to illness and injury caused by the work they did. So miners began to unionize in the mid 1840s. To show solidarity and to make their employers take notice, unionists would wear red bandanas around their necks. And thus, the term ‘redneck’ was coined to describe the union supporters who eventually dismantled a lot of the exploitive practices used by the coal industry. Love these! Just discovered the hillbilly leftie podcast the Trillbilly Worker’s Party, and I am so excited to see more leftist organizing in these parts. We have an amazing history of labor struggle, and a fair amount of labor wins, in this region.
