about

Even though people like to deny it: we live in a class society and everyone is informed by this –
institutions and individuals alike. In order to react to changes in the way capital was made, the so-called
industrial nations saw an increased class struggle from the top in the 1970s. The developing capitalist
world market led to an intensified international competition.
The capital side intensified the pressure on employees this led to higher self-exploitation, and lower
wages. Due to the political developments the labour market became more flexibilized, and social
inequality increased. In the western industrial nations the number of the „working poor“, those who can't
make ends meet despite working several badly paid jobs, is constantly growing. At the same time the
welfare state is cut more and more and public services are being privatized. Parties like the SPD and
Bündnis 90/Die Grünen that like to portray themselves as „reform-oriented“, „social“ and „alternative“ are
key players in this development. One example is the „Agenda 2010“ which was implemented in the years
2003 to 2005 during the red-green-coalition. The results were an expansion of the low-wage labour
market and temporary work. Nowadays nearly ¼ of all employees work in the low-wage labour sector.
Unlike the working class, the dominant class has a very distinct class consciousness. The billionaire
Warren Buffet expressed this very clearly in an interview with the New York Times in November 2006
where he said “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and
we’re winning.”
It is time that we fight back together and overthrow circumstances in which humans are a degraded,

SOZIAL SCHWACH
radikalisierter Kapitalismus bestimmt das heutige Leben
neben Gewinner_innen muss es Verlierer_innen geben

Leiharbeitsverhältnisse, Ausbeutung,
Niedriglohnsektor, prekäre Beschäftigung
Agenda 2010 und Hartz 4
bestimmt das falsche Leben von vielen hier

neben Gewinner_innen muss es Verlierer_innen geben

Ergebnis eines Klassenkampfes von Oben
lasst uns den Widerstand erproben
soziale Gedanken immer mehr abgeschafft
lasst uns nicht zuseh´n wie die Schere (zwischen Arm und Reich weiter) auseinanderklafft
gebt gut Acht, das Feuer entfacht

Dass Deklassierte heute als „sozial schwach“ gelten sagt viel aus über die soziale Schwäche dieser Gesellschaft

gebt gut Acht das Feuer entfacht
lasst uns dabei sein, wenn das System auseinaderkracht
kein Friede den Hütten, sondern für alle Paläste
wir können einfach nicht auf andere setzen
so wie es ist, so bleibt es nicht
es liegt an uns, es ist unsere Pflicht
Klassenkampf von Unten

downtrodden, abandoned and abject subject
