There's actually lists in magazines of the richest people... I looked at the richest 100 in BC, pretty much all resource extraction on stolen land or sweat shop owners, price gouging telecom execs.
Externalizing the cost of massive pollution is another exploit.
Paul McCartney, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jay Z is the list of billionaire musicians. That's it. No others.
If you're underpaid you can't take sick days, you can't pay vet bills, you can't fix a flat tire... etc. The born rich have never experienced a financial shortfall that could disrupt their comfort yet build their empires on the backs of people that are barely scraping by...
In BC half of the population is a paycheck away from not making rent. Half the population doesn't know if they could end up homeless before the end of the season... That's so fucked.
I sure wanted to punch my boss at the glass factory in the face when I got a 100 dollar grocery card as a Christmas bonus... we got so many days off some employees might be in the food bank without such a "gift" oh and this guy has a 1.6 million dollar car and barely spends time at the factory. Fuck that turd.
Probably paid for it by neglecting the ventilation because hey who cares if the employees get crippled from powdered glass in their lungs, there are always desperate people they can be replaced with. There are only 300 employees there... so that guy could've just gotten himself an Accord and put everyone in the factory through college. Fuck the rich, they're callous and parasitic reptiles and their lack of fairness actually puts the lives of the people that produce their wealth into ruin. It's time for community self defence, what form this will take... time will tell.
Rather than violently storm camps it might be better to find a way to continue providing a livable income to all the enforcers that are "just doing their jobs" to just do another job or nothing at all.
So right now in Canada the feds are trespassing and kidnapping people on unceded indigenous land in Unist'ot'en.. the united nations is not on Canada's side in this one.
They do this at the same time that they say they (the corps and gov) are being respectful and lawful and consulting and getting consent. They have been explicitly denied it. So these are our leftmost choice in Canada, they serve corporations and boldly lie. Upgrading the resources they want to build a pipeline and terminal to export would provide more prosperity for Canada too so it's just obfuscated parasitism and oppression. Last year when the conducted another raid they requested to have snipers ready to shoot unarmed protestors and the police threatened to arrange accidents to kill protesters they had in custody.
In Burnaby BC I've seen them scramble the ERT, our equivalent of SWAT, for hippies climbing trees, bike-locking themselves to construction equipment, taking a walk in the forest on the wrong side of the construction tape... SWAT teams across america routinely get deployed on spurious pranks calls, I know nerds have figured out the code to summon SWAT like 'erratic person with firearm threatening another' but they are eager to deploy all over I think.
They'll show up with an APC and tactical vests carrying 300 rounds of ammunition per person.
I think they need to deploy their equipment as much as possible to attempt to justify paying for it.
Wait... SWAT raided his car and home?! For what????
I call shenanigans. No way SWAT raids your house and car for fucking graffiti.
