Continuing to boycott Amazon, Walmart, and other corporations that exploit their workforce. Probably going to order a pizza though.

Maybe throw a riot in a working class neighborhood and set fire to cars belonging to poor people.

Or hold a meet up with other elderly members of the Red Dawn choir and sing socialist marching songs from the 1930s.

Let me actually translate one for you. Always nice for the first of may.

Text: Julian Arendt / Ernst Busch
Music: Hanns Eisler
1932

Original Version:

Ballade von den Säckeschmeißern

Oh, mich zieht's nach einem fernen Lande,
Wo die schlanke Tropenpalme prangt.
In Brasilien, am Rio Grande,
Werden Kaffeesackschmeißer verlangt.
 
Es gibt zuviel Kaffee auf der Welt
Und darum pro Zentner zu wenig Geld.
Drum wird, so will es das Weltgewissen,
Die halbe Ernte ins Wasser geschmissen.
 
Immere rin, mein Junge!
Das hat 'n Sinn, mein Junge!
Da steckt was hinter, mein Junge!
Das wird ein Winter, mein Junge!
 
Ich sag allen feiernden Familien:
Marsch, marsch, nach Rio
In den ersten, besten Kahn!
Auf, auf nach Brasilien!
Und rin mit dem Mokka in den Ozean!
Und rin mit dem Mokka in den Ozean!
 
Und hat der Menschenhai am Rio Grande
An seinen nassen Bohnen profitiert,
Werden wir aus diesem reichen Lande
Gleich nach USA hintransportiert.
 
Dort wächst zuviel Getreide auf dem Feld,
und das bringt pro Tonne zu wenig Geld.
Dort wäscht man die Kartoffeln mit Petroleum rein
Und heizt mit dem Weizen die Maschinen ein.
 
Immere rin, mein Junge!
Das hat 'n Sinn, mein Junge!
Da steckt was hinter, mein Junge!
Das wird ein Winter, mein Junge!
 
Proleten, packt eure Habe!
Die reiche Ernte hat uns die Preise verhunzt!
Brotfrucht ist Teufelsgabe!
Drum rin mit de Schrippen in die Feuerbrunst!
Drum rin mit de Schrippen in die Feuerbrunst!
 
Sie werfen den Weizen ins Feuer,
Sie werfen den Kaffee ins Meer.
Und wann werfen die Säckeschmeißer
Die fetten Räuber hinterher?
 
Siehst du, das hat 'n Sinn, mein Junge!
Siehst du, das wird ein Winter, mein Junge,
Wie er in deinem Leben nie wiederkehrt!
Wie er in deinem Leben nie wiederkehrt!

 

My very rough translation... i tried to keep the singing flow.

The ballad of the bag throwers

Oh, i'm drawn to a far away country
Where slim palm trees are shining forth
In Brasil at the Rio Grande
Coffee bag throwers are searched for

There is too much coffee on this globe
and so per hundredweight not enough note's
And so demands, the world's conscience
to throw half the harvest into the oceans

Toss it in, my boy!
It has meaning, my boy!
There's more to it, my boy!
This will be a winter, my boy!

I tell all celebrated families:
March, March to Rio
with the first barge coming along!
Onward, onward to Brasil!
And toss the Mocha into the sea!
And toss the Mocha into the sea!

And when the shark at the Rio Grande
profited on his wet beans,
they will out of this rich country
transport us to the USA.

They grow to much wheat on their fields,
and this brings per ton not enough yield.
They use petrol clean potato's
and fire with wheat their incinerators.

Toss it in, my boy!
It has meaning, my boy!
There's more to it, my boy!
This will be a winter, my boy!

Prolets, pack and come along!
The rich harvest butchered prices all along!
Breadfruit is devils praise!
And so throw all of it into the blaze!
And so throw all of it into the blaze!

They throw the wheat into the fire,
they throw the coffee into the sea.
But when will the these bag throwers,
toss their fat robbers to be free?

There, that makes sense, my boy!
Yes, this will be a winter, my boy!
That in your life time never will return!
That in your life time never will return!

Bilderberg has been moved to Davos nowadays. And stuff is being filmed and broadcasted. Which is kinda ironic because people are still drawn to the idea of this secret unjustified power that controls their life. It's out in the open and not what they think it is.

Myths and lizards. People are simply addicted to them.

Nuclear industry bringing power to homes. Scariest part isn't the uranium, it's the locker room filled with careless bozo's.

I was defo born in a working class family which came from a long line of agrarian workers and substinence farmers, but I have no idea what class I'm supposed to be anymore so my own class consciousness is lost a long time ago. Maybe I'm middle class? Can I fight for my right to have a decent cup of cappuccino?

Are you forced to work to live decently because you didn't inherit a money making machine (firm), a house, inheritance or similar? Then you're working class. But class is a very imprecise way of looking at society. It's better to look at society in terms of social milieus and sociocultural contexts.

idk, but according to the site...

https://bilderbergmeetings.org/meetings/meeting-2019/press-release-2019

It was in Switzerland last year

What I meant by crashing the meeting was I strap a 303, a Korg and a keyboard to my body, with two speakers on top of my head. I'll go 'hear my mixtape, rich mfs' then a hot lady will go around collecting donations which I assume will be all 500 eur bills
