토론주제 : 세계의 가난한 사람들과 마르크스 혁명 추구의 정당성
All around the world and no matter what country in which they live currently live in a system of dictatorship. They live under a dictatorship known as no alternative shackled by capital that's been unjustly acquired, constrained by a land of gentry who have no incentive but to pursue their own interests, and chained by the fact that they can't do anything but to look at the question of their own subsistence. They're unable to reach out for the right to liberty and to self determination that we think in here in the human condition. How are we going to define a Marxist revolution in this debate? We say that in all its forms, it shares the feature of wanting to break down the system of private property. That is what a Marxist revolution means. It can take place in one of two ways. One, is it can happen through internal systems that exist presently, that is to say that you vote in Marxist governments who support things like mass redistribution and the abolishment of private property. Or it can exist externally in the instance of forcibly bringing down governments that for far too long have tread on these people's rights. The first thing that I'm going to note, just on account of the model is just a picture of what we think this world looks like. That is to say, we accept that this attempt at revolution won't succeed in all instances, that in many instances, it'll just lead to the rise of Marxist parties. But in the world in which we do succeed, we encourage you to use your imagination, that is to say, just notice how chronocentric our vision of civilization is. That is, a system of private property emerged out of the Enlightenment, that is the last 300 years of human existence. Prior to that, people lived in sharing economies where they defined themselves as something greater than their labor and their productive force. That's the kind of world that we support. Two things then I'm going to begin this speech with. First, private property constitutes a fundamental assault in human dignity in three key respects. First, it is found and it has been acquired unjustly. In the vast majority of instances, the reason why wealthy countries are wealthy is through processes like colonialism, through slavery, through patriarchy. It represents plunder, when you refuse to give any representation or resources to whom or from whom you took money. But even if it wasn't in those direct instances of theft, in many instances, it was negligence, that's to say the creation of vastly constrictive intellectual property rates. That means that individuals doored in the poor have proper access to things like medication. It's refusal to tax properly. We think negligence is just as morally culpable. The fact that it is unjustly acquired in it of itself gives the poor a claim to that property and to an institution that as itself been harmful. The second thing it enables the poor in terms of a principle is that it allows them ot get redress in opposition to centuries of disenfranchisement. That is to say, theft and negligence represent the stripping of the individual right to assert themselves. We're going to give you systematic reasons why you don't get reforms on their side but notice that this as a principled argument is independent from a consideration of practices. That's to say, compensation or giving more money is unlike categorically what these people require in principle, which is a redress from the fact that they've been taken out of the system of moral equality by theft and negligence. The last thing to say is let's take them at their best. That is, let's wipe the slate clean and accept that everybody has equal access to resources. Why then is property still oppressive and why does it represent an assault on human dignity? The first reason is that competition and the premises on which it is based is artificial. That's to say, trade are morally insignificant or arbitrary factors. The fact of scarcity which allows many corporations to succeed. The fact that I was born with certain talents or certain skills that other individuals weren't. We think those are morally arbitrary from the consideration of desert and we don't think that's just ground. The second thing is a question of actors. So capital continues to decide what begets it. So you get to decide as the head of a corporation, who you hire and what kind of skills you have. Priniciply, private property assaults dignity. This second leads to good outcomes. Notice on the other side, the reason why they need to defend the status quo is that they don't get the levers of structural reforms that you require. There are three reasons for this. The first is the democratic system, that through processes of gerrymandering which are almost irrevocable in very many parts of the world. The poor are systematically disenfranchised. They don't control hedgemonic media that control media narratives about what good policy is. They usually kept up hard by racist rhetoric that accentuates other ascryptive descriptions preventing them from coming forward. The fact of historical disenfranchisement furthermore means that they're less likely to turn out the vote in a way that other people are. The second reason why you don't get structural reform is because it's internationally imbalanced on the considerations of nations. So the Bretton Woods institutions largely built by the west, the institution of human rights which favors civil and political rights of a socioeconomic human rights. We say that those things mean that the alternative they need to defend is continued and systematic in action. What do you get under our side? One, the success cases. These are the ones in which the revolution works. Closing, I'll take you if you have something.
Despite this rhetoric, the last two decades have seen almost a billion people lifted out of poverty in Asia because companies have an incentive to unlock an unskilled and uneducated workforce they otherwise wouldn't.
Uh, we refuse that premise. The reason why we were able to get socioeconomic rights in countries like China is through massive systems of redistribution and bringing up the poor from the public. So if you want to claim literally the communist country for your side, that is to say the people who have put it together the single biggest program of economic and social rights.
Yeah, okay I think enough said.
So let's say the world in which they succeed. We think that those communities will succeed for three reasons. First, it encompasses the vast majority of the global population and given that capital is dependent on labor to get any returns from it, we think that's beneficial. Second is the location of resources in many parts of the developing world means that they have access to those things. The third thing to say is that you get cross-pollination, and you get global solidarity across racial lines where currently, capital has the incentive to get them divided. Those deals with the best case scenario for their side where you get complete revolution. For now we'll also talk about why you get structural reforms along the way that are beneficial. What we need from an opposition is a comprehensive account of property, why it's just and why it doesn't as it has continually done throughout history, assault human dignity. We're very proud to propose.
You honestly think that Singapore more closely approximates Marxist Russia than it does Western liberal democracy?
Literally, this is our point, this is our point. Our point was this. Yes, the state is acting in a capitalist manner but the ownership of that is based on a democratic principle which everybody has the potential to benefit from. Yes it exists on the capitalism but an approximation that we think is a step in the right direction, right? The bourgoiese element before we get to Marxist utopia. Okay, on Asia right? The second thing to say is that, we don't think this is freedom at all. When people are dying in burning factories in Bangladesh and they don't have the political enfranchisement to say, "hey this is unacceptable, government." We don't think that democratic representation is something that is at all beneficial. What did we give you then, in addition to this? Firstly, we told you they can succeed and this is contrary to their arguments about them having better guns. Three sorts of things. Firstly, the soldiers that man those armies, we think in very many circumstances, are the global poor. The vast majority of the draft of the United States happens to be African Americans who have systemically been prejudiced by their government. Secondly, we think, that just in the virtue of the number of people that are actually poor, if all of them decided tomorrow they'd like to follow opening government, Harvard, on their way to success, we think we'd be very successful. Secondly, we think the resources happen to be in the places where are very poor and capital requires labor for it to be effective. Panel, there's a principle here and an assault on human dignity. Even if we fail, self-defense is justified. Incredibly proud to propose.
이런 동영상 머리가 조금 아프긴 해도 우리가 살아가는데 삶의 의미를 부여해준다. 그냥 살지 말고 생각하면서 살라고 한다. 어떻게 살아야하고 어떻게 키워야할지 중심을 갖게 해준다.
세상은 변하는 것으로 이루어져 있다.
변화를 두려워하지 말자~

Snowpiercer TRAILER (2013) - Chris Evans Movie HD
우리가 살아가는 이 세상은 이 열차의 칸처럼 등급이 매겨져서 살아가게 된다. 돈이 많은 사람들(상류층)과 가난한 사람들(빈민층)은 이미 태어날때부터 다른 열차 칸에서 생활하게된다. 부당한 대우(=하나님이 우리에게 준 자유를 방해받는 것)를 받으면서도 아무말도 할 수 없이 살아가는 현실을 보여주고 있다. 이때 솟구치는 힘~ 나는 이 영화를 보면서 내가 서있던~ 내가 가고 있던~ 80년대를 되돌아보고 있었다. 만약 그들의 솟구치는 힘들이 없었다면 지금의 대한민국은 꿈도 꿀수 없었던~~
아무 동작도 보이지 않고~ 정지되어 있는것 같은 지금도~ 그 솟구치는 힘은 어디엔가 존재한다. 욕을 먹고 밟히면서도 꿈틀거리는 그 힘~ 그때는 오늘을 과거로 기억할 것이다.
자유란 무엇인가?에 대해 글을 쓰고 생각하는 시간을 자주 갖는데 내 글을 읽는 분들이 이 부분을 공감하기를 진심으로 바라면서 글을 쓰는 것을 정지할 수가 없다. 우리 인간에게 누려야할 자유가 있는데 그것을 누리지 못하고 죽게 되는것~ 그것이 무엇인지조차 찾지 못하고 살다가 가게되는 것이다. 맨 아래 사진에 밀치고 달리는 이 사람들은 그것을 느낀 것이다. 자신의 느낌조차 제대로 표현할 수 없는 무감각인 사람이 되어있지는 않은지? 사랑하는 나의 사람들아~
여기서 영어문제 하나 내보자.
문제 2. 위에서 "자신의 느낌조차 제대로 표현할 수 없는 무감각의 사람"이라고 표현했는데 이렇게 무감각의 상태를 영어로는 무엇이라고 할까?
힌트: 치과에 가서 치료하기전에 마취를 하면 이런 무감각의 상태가 된다.
위의 단어들을 소리내어보자.
