centrist/conservative neoliberal logic: if you…

centrist/conservative neoliberal logic: if you support
policies like universal healthcare, raising the minimum wage, and ending
tax loopholes that benefit the 1% then you must take a vow to live in a
cave and stop participating in society, otherwise you’re a hypocrite.
advocating for people less privileged than you and for policies that will potentially raise your own taxes is wrong.

but
if you’re a neoliberal centrist/conservative and don’t support policies to end
inequality and want to maintain an unjust economic system that punishes
women, poc, and the most vulnerable in society then you somehow have the
moral high ground over people who actually want to change the status
quo.

Martin Luther King Jr.: ‘The Economic Problem Is the Most Serious Problem’

The Poor People’s Campaign was a 1968 effort to gain economic justice for poor people in the United States. It was organized by Martin Luther King, Jr., and was the last campaign he was working on before he was assassinated in April 1968.

The campaign demanded economic and human rights for poor Americans of
diverse backgrounds. It was motivated by a desire for economic
justice: the idea that all people should have what they need to live.
King shifted his focus to these issues after observing
that gains in civil rights had not improved the material conditions of
life for many African Americans.
The Poor People’s Campaign was a multiracial effort—including
African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans,
and Native Americans—aimed at alleviating poverty regardless of race.
