A clip from the mockumentary "Goodbye Uncle Tom"
INTERVIEWER: But sir surely you must realize the injustice of your situation? The violation of your liberty. Your freedom.
The Wise Slave: Sir if you speak of freedom I must tell you something. I am a worker and workers are not free and never will be.
If you speak of my condition. I will quickly say:
I don't pay taxes.
I'm housed, fed and clothed by my employer.
I worked a short week.
My medical care is free and I get a Christmas bonus and retirement or
permanent disability at the expense of my employer without mentioning
this – that in time of war I am not even obligated to military
The Interviewer: But if your not even paid……
The Wise Slave: I see the ones which you called freed slaves and liberated workers .
Out from morning till night working like horses to make ends meet and
they never do.
So just tell me then what's the difference between us slaves and
Interviewer: You should be ashamed of yourself!!!!
The Wise Slave: Who me?
The Interviewer: Yes you. You are a dishonor to your race.
The Wise Slave's outlook sounds somewhat like the domestic policy of our progressive friends here in America.
