except that in todays society 90% of the population doesnt perform any socially necessary or meaningful labor
entire heavy industry is now ran by a handful of people, all manual labor factories are in china, mines that used to spawn mining towns are now ran by 3 dudes staring at the screens, tractor and combine harvesters of big agricorp eliminate the need for workers there too as the drones spray the field….
there is no "labor" anymore, no one has worked with a sickle or a hammer for at least 50 years now
you will have a swathe of nail salon and fashion "workers" and fast food perma minwage shitters with absolute 0 strategic skills and equipment, tv watchers and beer drinkers, these are your "mighty" workers of today
modern "workers" (especially if they are civilian workers) are torch and pitchfork aerial shelling bait, today a single army ground defense colonel or even just a captain in the airforce commands more firepower than basically all of civilian population
wrong. All of the workers you mention which supposedly only perform 'socially unnecessary' labour, they are still all that porky has to maintain his riches. Its not the nature of the work that is being done that determines this, its the nature of capitalism itself that they need us more than we need them. Even widespread global automation of all production wouldn't change that. As for your Porky masturbation fantasy of mass repression, who builds and maintains all the systems that the military uses, how is it possible to get the ungodly amount of resources that they need for a protracted war? How do they get their energy, how do they feed and clothe and arm their troops? Its all labour, it depends on functioning of the capitalist economy and the working class holds all the power in the capitalist economy. It only has to recognize its power and with every insult and every atrocity against it and with diminishing gibs from Porky it will come closer to that recognition day by day. Never Forget what Mao said:
In an interview, I discussed many questions with her, including Chiang Kai-shek, Hitler, Japan, the United States and the atom bomb. I said all allegedly powerful reactionaries are merely paper tigers. The reason is that they are divorced from the people. Look! Wasn't Hitler a paper tiger? Wasn't he overthrown? I also said that the tsar of Russia was a paper tiger, as were the emperor of China and Japanese imperialism, and see, they were all overthrown. U.S. imperialism has not yet been overthrown and it has the atom bomb, but I believe it too is a paper tiger and will be overthrown. Chiang Kai-shek was very powerful, for he had a regular army of more than four million. We were then in Yenan. What was the population of Yenan? Seven thousand. How many troops did we have? We had 900,000 guerrillas, all isolated by Chiang Kai-shek in scores of base areas. But we said that Chiang Kai-shek was only a paper tiger and that we could certainly defeat him.
All reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality they are not so powerful.
