News The Big Difference

Charging a 13-year-old boy for killing another boy with a gun given to him by an adult? How fucking backward. That boy should be free and the responsible adult should be in jail (if he is not there already). What this society has to see is the real difference that exists between children and adults. And, yes, I believe there is a hidden and sinister ideology at work here—meaning, if capital says children are adults then adults are children, and what more does capital want than for the majority of the public it exploits (Exxon profits, war, and so on) to believe they are as powerless as children. We are adults and this is a boy. He should not be in the papers, not be in court, and back in school. He has committed no crime. Only adults commit crimes.
