about

The neo-liberal agenda is always present. You can elect social democrats but they will collaborate with either conservatives or neo-liberals and sell their ideals to stay in power. They help to pave the way for the destruction of the welfare state by privatising the economy and destroying social housing programs, followed by a top-down imposed participation society. A bottom-up participation society is the most social society where people help out each other where they can. When it is imposed on people so the government can ignore the people it is supposed to represent, they're hijacking the concept as a cover for their on-going selling out of what is ours, as they dance to the tunes of multinationals. We suggest you give us the word participation back, dicks! Instead of a participation society, let's aim for a participation economy*. As long as there's no change we will be screaming!
* Suggested read “Parecon: Life After Capitalism” (Michael Albert, 2002, Verso)

lyrics

New 'kings' get inaugurated but the politics they stay the same
We have to set it all on fire, we have been gone to long
We're back, we're pissed!

As long as there's no change we will be screaming
As long as there's no change we will be screaming
Overthrow inequalities! Participate! It's up to you and me
As long as there's no change we will be screaming

Dismantling the welfare state, your newest policy
Power-hungry post-socialists, held hostage by liberal greed
They're back, we're pissed!

As long as there's no change we will be screaming
As long as there's no change we will be screaming
Overthrow inequalities! Participate! It's up to you and me
As long as there's no change we will be screaming

Ik zeg oeh!
