Orpheus: Don't Look Back

(Excerpt from Marxist 'zine distributed in Union Square, New York)

You must open your eyes! The revolution is not yet nigh, but by the strength of the workers it might be yet! There is an angel among us, and her cause is the worker! From beyond the veil of death comes Alice West, and in her hand are the tools of the worker!

You must tear down the edifice of power! You must take what is yours by right--what is the worker's! We will no longer be content with the discursive hegemony of the ruling class, the bourgeoisie! We will no longer prop their decadence up--no! Not upon the backs of the workers, and not upon the backs of the poor!

Comrade West has shown that with spirit and inspiration, even the enforcers of the bourgeoisie might be compelled to rebel! The strength of the workers--the many!--is inescapable, and the debauched oligarchs lie supple and weak before the hardness of the working man's and working woman's hands. The strength is yours! Take up the working tools and seize the means of production. The parasitic over-class has no inherent right to exist! The workers of what was once Amalgamated Steel now rule their own destiny, and that place, fittingly, will hereafter be known as West Steel Concern!

I say again--Take up your tools, and with them, destroy all systems of power that lash you to the wheel of capitalism. Kill the rich! Destroy the system! 

As Comrade West has shown us, the only thing we have to lose is our chains!
