“The choice between going backward and moving forward has never been so clear. We need to embrace a theory in which class struggle is a central element in the analysis of social change in America. I am asking you, the proletariat to rise up and bring forth this profound change,” Obama told the audience gathered inside the Auraria Events Center on the Auraria campus downtown Denver.
The approximately 20-minute speech focused heavily on his new state health care bill, and his new collectivist agricultural and state policies, as well as the role of the female proleteriat members in the new proposed state structure. Obama’s future change policies also feature the mass redistribution of wealth, rights for all illegal immigrants, nationalisation of all industry, disarming the people, and the introduction of heavy internet surveillance/regulation.
Under the old American system the president was opposing, Obama said that: “The proletariat, the working class or ‘the people,’ own only their capacity to work; they have the ability only to sell their own labour.”
According to Obama the proletariat are only defined by their ability to work. The president said that “Vast change was needed by Americans with class struggles, wars, and uprisings. Under the Romney or Republican system, I have reiterated the point, that the workers, in order to support their families are paid a bare minimum wage or salary. The worker is alienated because he has no control over the labour or product which he produces. The old corporate Americanized system sells the products produced by the workers at a proportional value as related to the labour involved. Thus, surplus value is the difference between what the worker is paid and the price for which the product is sold.”
Obama took the stage to cheers of “Four more years” from the crowd, estimated by fire officials at 4,000 people. The crowds cheered his name over and over again.
Obama then added: “We are seeing these Republican party created recessions increasing in number every day. The proletariat are in perpetual misery as the result of economic recessions; these recessions result because the working class is unable to buy the full product of their labours and the ruling capitalists do not consume all of the surplus value. There can only be change from this terrible Republican party created malaise and wastage. A proletariat or socialist revolution must occur, where the state (the means by which the ruling class forcibly maintains rule over the other classes) is a dictatorship of the proletariat. Eventually communism will evolve from socialism out of this progression. I say to you my fellow Americans: ‘From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.’ I will see Change in America in my lifetime and you will help me attain this Change.”
After the speech, there were ecstatic applause and cheers from the assembled crowds holding Obama placards.
