I think that tea baggers should get tea bagged. They are proselytizers of false consciousness among working people, that is, they promote false ideas which have the function of getting working people -- the majority -- to to go against their own interests by supporting the lopsided capitalist system here in the US in which they have no stake in perpetuating. By perpetuating it, they perpetuate their own oppression and exploitation (as well as those exploited and oppressed by US imperialism abroad). Capitalism in the US is like a game of Monopoly that was already won a long time ago by somebody else. Sorry, too bad, so sad -- they won it before you were born. If you're anybody but the Monopoly game winners or their heirs, then your reward is a lifetime of servitude to the foregoing. Thinking that you're one day going to be one of them is *false consciousness,* and the sooner that working people start realizing this, the sooner we can get in the 'driver's seat' of society, and organize it along lines more favorable to our interests.
