There is perhaps no more venerated capitalist than your local grocer. The grocer picks a location, sets up shop, and induces customers to visit by providing the best service at the best price.
This week, shoppers at a Trader Joe’s, one of America’s more popular groceries, were assailed with the Marxist demands of the BLM movement. Phil Shiver reports for The Blaze:
A group of Black Lives Matter protesters in Seattle allegedly stormed a Trader Joe’s last week to protest “lack of access to grocery stores” and educate patrons on “how capitalism exploits the working class.”…
According to its Instagram profile, the group advocates for abolishing police — which it portrayed using a pig emoji — and the redirecting of funds into black communities (i.e. wealth redistribution).
The store manager evidently felt so threatened by the demonstration that he, in turn, threatened to call the police and prevented patrons from entering the store while the protesters remained.
Why does it matter?
If this critique of Trader Joe’s sounds a lot like something that would be advanced by Marxist philosophers, that’s because it is.
The goal of Marxism, after all, is a society in which there is common ownership of the means of production and free access for all, in contrast to capitalistic society, which Marxists argue leads to the exploitation of the working class and restricts their access to goods and services.
The rhetoric is not surprising, however, because Black Lives Matter leaders have acknowledged in the past that they are “trained Marxists.”
What is ironic about Morning March Seattle’s protest is that “access” seemed to be quite obviously available for the protesters, who easily waltzed into the grocery store. Access was taken away from patrons, however, who were temporarily barred from entry by the protesters’ presence.
Remember the old saying, “Under communism, you wait for food. Under capitalism, food waits for you.”
