Working Class Hero I

As soon as your born they make you feel small,
“Look at you!! You gotta small dick!!”
“You’re stupid”
“You’re worthless”
“Fuckin’ crybaby”

By giving you no time instead of it all,
“These parents that enroll you in college before you even know which side of the playpen smells the worst” –George Carlin

Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all,
One withdraws into an art or self-mutilation or music. Or reacts, rebels or produces acts of violence. Teaching conflict-resolution, having peer-counseling and identifying coping mechanisms early on would illuminate other channels of expression. Centering our upbringing on the mechanisms we have now isn’t really working. Teaching responsibility and basic manners would go a long way in the long-term. But the view isn’t looking long-term. The creation and stabilization of the worker class is paramount to continuing the system we have in place now. Innovation makes a more flexible economy, but we need the working class, basic labor to ensure a continuous stream of revenue.

A working class hero is something to be,
