New Narrative?

Posted: 18/02/2018 by zandtao in Corbyn, Democracy, Struggle

It seems to have taken a long time to deal with Simon Amstell, and here is George Monbiot – a name I have seen often but I know nothing of him.

I liked his talk but I have to ask “why is his narrative new?” Is it just political rebranding?

All my life what mattered was grass roots campaigning. It didn’t matter whether it was grassroots campaigning in the Labour party or grassroots campaigning for the trade union. It was grassroots campaigning. And that meant campaigning in the grassroots for the grassroots – campaigning by and for the people, not the Labour party or trade union. That is real democracy.

Who are the enemies of grassroots democracy?

Politically as a system neoliberalism is the enemy of grassroots democracy. But what types of enemy are these neoliberals?

1) The 1%
2) The bipartisan system of neoliberalism
3) The right-wing party
4) The opportunists within the party of the people.

The rise of the right-wing has occurred because we have failed to promote the grassroots movement. Slowly through my adult life the power of the grassroots movement has got less and less, and now people are calling for a new narrative. But this is also divisive.

Monbiot is calling for communities, those communities are the grassroots. There has always been organising in grassroots but that organising has failed because the left has failed because there has been the rise of liberals who have “taken over” the left – the rise of opportunism. Does Monbiot attack liberals? He can’t, they are Guardian readers.

The genuine left has always organised through the grassroots, in trade unions and begrudgingly in the Labour party. Why begrudgingly? Because the Labour party has increasingly been taken over by opportunists, people who are using the Labour party to gain political power – Blair, Guardian readers, Clintons.

When George describes Bernie he talks about the latest form of grassroots campaigning, that is all. No new narrative – just a “return?” to grassroots campaigning. I question return because I haven’t lived in the UK since 1992 – never lived in the US, I missed New Labour, I missed the continuing rise of opportunism, I missed the rise of Liberal power and Guardian Readers, I missed the failure in grassroots campaigning. I missed the rise of George Monbiot?

As for Corbyn I think he is fighting back for the grassroots – same as Bernie. George, you defended Bernie but did not defend Corbyn. I don’t know enough about the grassroots in the UK now, but the Labour party has had years of Blairites, Liberals and Guardian readers dividing the class. They are still doing it. Class Unity is the grassroots call, do you make it, George?

The issue has and always will be class, redefine class so that class unity is contemporary. But it is still class, not a new narrative. Look at the 4 enemies and how they fit in with class. The 1% is bourgeoisie – clear. The bipartisan electoral system has always been used to divide the proletariat – 1%-system. Working within the grassroots movement, people have always said “look at this or that puppet opportunist climbing on my back and taking my money”. King UK user – Blair, Marx couldn’t find a clearer example of opportunism, Blair is the past master. The 1% love him, that’s how he hung around for so long, he was a tool, an opportunist puppet. And he promoted liberalism, now we have people demanding a new narrative when all we want is a return to grassroots campaigning – my apologies to all the comrades who have spent their lives campaigning within the grassroots, comrades who would not allow class analysis to die.

The people who have let the grassroots down are Blair’s liberals and the Guardian readers who have not understood class and not understood the meaning of grassroots campaigning, and the people who have failed to educate them.

Because of this failure to support grassroots campaigning amongst the proletariat, there has been a rise in the right and their parties. When Liberal intellectuals call for a new narrative, what is happening is a further cut into the underbelly of the grassroots? Every Guardian reader, who does not stand up and say “I am a member of the class and proud of it”, is helping the 1%, their Liberal arrogance whether for identity politics or some intellectual distraction is enabling the accumulation by the 1%.

There is no new narrative, just a need for new education, a new understanding of what the class now stands for. The 1%-system is consumerism. The grassroots working together for mindful consuming based on class interest is one strategy, withdrawing labour used to be a strategy now we can withdraw purchasing power as a class strategy. Look at how much Israel is frightened of the Boycott campaign. Make the Boycott campaign a pillar of your Guardian columns, George, and see how long you keep your job.

The class will always be divided on race gender and sexuality but they are united by class. Where is the class rallying call that unites all races, genders and sexual preferences together as people who are demanding an end to exploitation by the 1%? Instead Liberals, Guardian Readers whine about this or that issue. They climb the wall about Trump instead of fighting back against the latest 1%-puppet, Trump. Apart from the 1%, it is Liberal intellectualism that wants the separation, that wants to say we are different to the guy who cleans the toilets. Well you are being used, exploited – any other word.

Where are the calls for the end of war, end of wage-slavery, those are the class interests, not fighting for the scraps that trickle down? Class Unity.

There is no new narrative – just class and their enemies.

I learned one thing George. There is a term for all the people who are causing confusion on the internet dividing my class – the Dark Money Network. But remember, George, even though the mainstream media, MSM, are not funded by the Dark Money Network, they don’t have to be because MSM is already 1%.

The only people who are not 1%, Dark Money or MSM, are the grassroots and their organisers who have maintained their integrity and discipline throughout. I thank them, and call for greater class solidarity.

George, we all must earn a living. Have you compromised with the above? I really don’t know.
