“In all the excitement of the past few days there has been much confusion generated amongst us and about us. What are mutants and where are they? Mutants can never be precisely defined. Much to the dismay of psychologists and sociologists. If we establish rigid classifications of nomenclature we will ignore variations in national contexts and potentially exclude millions from the mutant ranks. This should encourage to establish flexible categories of mutantism.
Above all mutants are usually the disadvantaged economically and socially such as the garbage pickers of Bogota or the limbless beggars of New Delhi or the Roma people in Eastern Europe. They can be disadvantaged physically or mentally but usually the two are combined. Most of all they are financially lacking as a result of their mutantism. I expect because much of our focus is on the poor our enemies will call us communists but just because we sometimes use their terminology does not make us so. Marxism stresses the crucial role of the proletariat but in many countries the proletariat are enjoying a decent standard of living like here in the United States and many countries of Europe often due to unionism. In such circumstances these proletarians have a vested interest in an oppressive economic system and have a vested interest in maintaining it to the detriment of mutants. Yet in some countries the proletariat is a ravaged and exploited class. Thus you can see how the mutant community fluctuates and the problems inherent in setting rigid classifications. What is true in one locale may not be true in another.
This is one reason there must be no supreme leader for national differences and issues are far too complex for one individual to handle. And we do not wish any imperialistic undertones to flaw the mutant struggle. Mutants of the USA have an important role to play in these circumstances as the United States has waged imperialistic undertakings of a most savage nature throughout the globe creating millions of mutants through its insatiable greed that the Yankee proletarian gets thrown chunks of meat for its silence. What a golden opportunity for American mutants to illustrate to the world that they as Americans are not interested in lining their pockets preying on the weak. Give advice and dollars you Yankee mutants but if you are laughed at or spit upon think of the mass murders to your nation’s credit and do not be offended.
Mutants can be of a physical variety as mutantism is not confined to the mind or to economic classes. Here the mutant movement can make great strides as it is these people that suffer the worst blights of discrimination, hatred and fear. For example most mutant amputees are denied access to public transportation and only the rich amongst them can afford public or private transportation. When mobility is restricted so is the ability to organize and assert power. This lack of mobility is more detrimental in underdeveloped countries with a poor transportation system. My friends, this is an example of political castration. Political power requires mobility and when you are effectively locked up in your room how political effective can you be? Visible forces like law enforcement will trample you and the mutant movement. Visibility plays an important role in any political struggle, If you are not seen you will be treated as if you do not exist. And if you don’t exist who will be accountable for your needs.
Friends I think we need a break as I have given you such much information. My good friend Britty Smears will perform a few numbers supported by the Moon Taylor dancers. I’ll be back in twenty. Enjoy the performance.”
