The distinction is sometimes drawn between democracy and Socialism, that is, the socialisation of the means of production and of production, by saying that the latter is our goal, the object of our movement, while democracy is merely the means to this end, which occasionally might become unsuitable, or even a hindrance.

To be exact, however, Socialism as such is not our goal, which is the abolition of every kind of exploitation and oppression, be it directed against a class, a party, a sex, or a race.
We seek to achieve this object by supporting the proletarian class struggle, because the proletariat, being the undermost class, cannot free itself without abolishing all causes of exploitation and oppression, and because the industrial proletariat, of all the oppressed and exploited classes, is the one which constantly grows in strength, fighting capacity and inclination to carry on the struggle, its ultimate victory being inevitable.

Therefore, to-day every genuine opponent of exploitation and oppression must take part in the class struggle, from whatever class he may come.

Karl Kautsky, The Dictatorship of the Proletariat, 1918?

…yeah, that’s right. I just quoted Kautsky. Deal with it.

It’s Bigger Than Hip-Hop 

Ay dogg that label is that slave ship 
Owners got them whips and rappers is slaves 
If you really wanna eat you gotta hear the same thing 
With the football, b-ball, or if you slangin that dope 
Aint never seen no hope, brainwash video shows be foolin my folk 
What the hell a brother gon do though, huh 
When the rent due, when the lights and the gas gonna get cut off 
Drop them raps or cock them gats 
Aint never had shit ever since we came to this bitch 
Why I gotta feel pain to get rich 
'stead of stackin chips, finna pack them clips
