A Quote by Immortal Technique

You see, third world countries are rich places; abundant in resources, and many of these countries have the capacity to feed their starving people and the children we always see digging for food in trash on commercials.  But plutocracies, in other words, a government run by the rich, such as this one and traditionally oppressive European states, force the third world into buying over-priced, unnecessary goods while exploiting huge portions of their natural resources…We’re given the idea that if we didn’t have these people to exploit that America wouldn’t be rich enough to let us have these little petty material things in our lives and basic standards of living.  No.  That’s wrong.  It’s the business giants and government officials who make all the real money; we have what ever they kick down to us…As much as racism bleeds America, we need to understand that classism is the real issue.  Many of us are in the same boat, and it’s sinking while these bourgeois mother fuckers ride on a luxury liner. And as long as we keep fighting over kicking people out of the little boat we’re all in, we’re gonna miss an opportunity to gain a better standard of living as a whole.
