Vision & Redemption Chapter One: Capital & Potential

The history of all societies since the days of the Sumerians up to the present is a history of class struggles. From those ancient conflicts between patricians and plebeians to the medieval feuds of lords and serfs, we now face the struggle between the capitalists and the workers. It's new only in a grander scheme, though, as the manifesto that inspired this limited release, by Marx and Engels, is over 170 years old at this point.

The Rise of Capitalists

The modern capitalist class, emerging from the ruins of feudal society, has revolutionized industry and commerce. They have centralized means of production and amassed immense wealth, creating a world market and fostering a global economy. Capitalists own all of the resources, while workers sell their labor to survive. The transfer of wealth up the chain at a continued annual growth is a pillar need to maintain the system, causing crisis events every few years for the Imperial Core and the nations they have their thumbs on.

This transformation has led to extraordinary advances in technology and production, yet it has also fostered significant social inequalities and often stiffens real competition and innovation. As the wealth of the capitalists grows at the expense of the workers, who are increasingly exploited and alienated from the fruits of their labor, a requirement for culture war divisions rises.

The Condition of Workers

The working class, driven by the necessity to earn a livelihood, faces relentless exploitation. Their labor enriches the capitalists, but they receive only a fraction of the value they produce. As industry advances, workers are subjected to harsher conditions, lower wages, and increasing insecurity.

Yet within this struggle lies the potential for change. The workers, united by their shared experiences and common interests, can challenge the dominance of the capitalists. The development of class consciousness among workers is the first step, but a choice to move past the meaningless culture war topics and against the interests of the elites must follow for true change.

Religious Socialism and the Call for Justice

Many religious traditions, including Christianity, advocate for the principles of equality, compassion, and social justice.

Christian socialism aligns with the teachings of Jesus, who championed the cause of the poor and oppressed and dined with sex workers and the homeless. The Bible speaks messages of the inherent dignity of every human being and the moral imperative to care for the least among us that is not lost on all in the community. This spiritual perspective can inspire and support our efforts to build a just and equitable society.

Do not be dissuaded from your potential because of red scare tactics and propaganda. Open up your hearts to people of all faiths and to those that denounce religion as well without the judgmental stench that sometimes follows such acts.

The Potential for More

The contradiction between the interests of the capitalists and the workers will continue. The centralization of wealth and production in the hands of a few creates an unstable and unjust society. As the plight of workers worsens, their collective strength and resolve will grow.

The goal of this manifesto is to unite all workers, irrespective of their religious beliefs, under the banner of socialism. We aim to dismantle the capitalist system and replace it with one where the means of production are communally owned and controlled. In this new society, the exploitation of man by man c could cease, and true equality and freedom can be realized.

The current plan of the capitalists is to continue to plunder while the world continues to burn, sucking up every gallon of blood they can and increasingly pushing for no ownership and simple obedience. We are already in the dystopia, we just don't have the grimy filters and flying cars. A continued choice to divide and sleepwalk will only quicken our extinction.
