I wrote this about two weeks ago.

contradiction
antagonistic contradiction
is the violence in the system
is the great conflict that kills people, that people fall in the middle of and starve to death
that is contradiction
there is a great contradiction among us
inside of us
inside of society

where 20000 people starve to death every day where the cops murder people where imperialists prop up dictators who brutalize the third world that is where the contradiction is today and liberals accept it there.

it is a question of moving this contradiction along, moving it along or through
we can roll it out, we roll it out painfully like a gallstone out of us,
but it’s in there, and it’s a question only of pushing it out or leaving it.

the liberals
they accept the contradiction existing right where it is
they are waiting, and for what? they are content to not push any direction, and to try to wait it out while every hour the contradiction kills thousands.

i am advocating something that will send the contradiction our way. the contradiction has not been near us—near the white liberals I grew up around, at least. but it does destroy us even being part of the body that contains it. it does corrode us just condoning it. and so we have no choice, it exists. there is no choice of no contradiction—the choice is only, do we resolve the contradiction.
