I Ain’t Here Fo’ Dat

I reject several elements of Kingism, but the one I detest the most is the idea that oppressed people have some special appointed divine task to sacrifice their lives and dignity in order for those who oppress them to be educated about or attain the fullness of their own humanity. While the collective struggle of the masses may in fact, in some cases and for some elites BE educative in that way, one must never forget that that is NOT its purpose for being. Its purpose for being is to liberate the people and to make collective self-determination possible. If your movement does nothing but teach some of slavemasters’ how to rule more humanely while failing to actually uplift your own, it is counterrevolutionary and a fraud.
