Guiding and Steering the Collapse

If every working-class person agreed to take a big cut in wages, if every woman agreed that her place was in the kitchen and retired from any job that anybody wanted her out of, if every Third World person agreed to accept an inferior position, if every child welcomed oppression by adults, and all the rest of such, the system would still collapse very quickly. We do not have to furnish the motive power or the drive to overthrow the system. That’s a misleading concept. The system is heading for collapse. It’s “going to hell in a bucket,” and fast. All the activist can do is guide and steer the process.
