People Over Politics' Matthew "Mad Matter" Benzion delivers a poetic civics lesson to activists in Miami, Florida on May 25, 2013 during the worldwide #MarchAgainstMonsanto.
Join the global March Against Corruption, an international campaign to raise awareness about the corrupting influence of money and special interests in governance and public policy making; to provide a forum for people, to organize and speak out against corruption; and to educate the public about the consequences of corruption.
"I'd like to talk about some things that bring us together. Things that point out our similarities instead of our differences, cause thats all you ever hear about in this country is our differences. Thats all the media and the politicians are ever talking about, the things that separate us, things that make us different from one another. Thats the way the ruling class operates in any society. They try to divide the rest of the people. They keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other so that they the rich, can run off with all the fucking money. Fairly simple thing. Happens to work. You know, anything different, thats what they gonna talk about. Race, religion, ethnic and national backgrounds, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality. Anything they can do, keep us fighting with each other so that they can keep going to the bank. You know how I describe the economic and social classes in this country? The upper class keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class pays all of the taxes, does all of the work. The poor are there just to scare the shit out of the middle class. Keep them showing up at those jobs." - George Carlin
