Originally published in July 2004, this essay remains as relevant now, if not more so, than it did then. We the People's true enemey is corporatism, predatory capitalism run amok, emasculating the corporate world to levels never before seen. It is this world, composed of profit margins and cost-benefit analysis, that ignores the human soul and cherishes the Almighty Dollar, engendering creative chaos, war and complete catharsis of the individual spirit, that is the true enemy of humankind, the true terrorist entity upon which the People's War on Terror must focus upon.

If we continue lethargic and pacified, the corporate Leviathan will swallow us whole, making of us one more morsel of a gluttonous appetite that is destroying Earth and imprisoning billions of human beings. This enemy, already killing millions of individuals on a yearly basis, all clandestinely buried six feet under, all in the name of profit and power, all ignored and obfuscated, hidden under the noses of the world entire, will in the years to come become an even greater threat than it is at present.

In the last century we battled totalitarianism; in this century we will battle corporatism. The following essay should be interpreted as a call to action, following in the footsteps of those words of the past, stated by wiser men and greater principles. For if not today, when? If not when, then our failure will be the purgatory of those inheriting the tomorrow. The coporate world has become our tyrant, our mass murderer, our brain and puppetmaster. When we wake up to this reality, then perhaps our planet and our destiny will find salvation in the incredible potential of this the human race, this primate with the capacity for so much good, and so much evil.

We the People, the people of the World entire, not just those residing inside the bowels of predatory capitalism itself, must accept that there is a war against us, and we must resist, rebel and alter the course of human events before the course of corporate events shackles us to the prison of our minds and the domain of serfs, slaves and the destiny of so many that have come before. Viva la Revolucion! The Revolution of We the People, 6 billion strong.


Zapatista Manifesto:

TO THE PEOPLE OF MEXICO:


TO THE PEOPLES AND GOVERNMENTS OF THE WORLD:

BROTHERS AND SISTERS:

The flower of the word will not die. The masked face which today has a name may die, but the word which came from the depth of history and the earth can no longer be cut by the ears with its cannons.

Our fight is caused by hunger, and the gifts of bad government are lead and paper for the stomachs of our children.

Our fight is for a roof over our heads which has dignity, and bad government destroys our homes and our history.

Our fight is for knowledge, and bad government distributes ignorance and disdain.

Our fight is for the land, and the government gives us cementaries.

Our fight is for a job which is just and dignified, and bad government buys and sells our bodies and our shames.

Our fight is for life, and bad government offers death as our future.

Our fight is for respect for our right to sovereignty and self-government, and bad government imposes laws of the few on the many.
