During that decade, the left began turning its attention to other causes and in doing so began a war against the poor.

This war is not an intentional war, but it is a war nevertheless. It manifests itself in a number of ways: by environmentalists who never think about the impact that their policies have on the poor- by well-meaning people who destroyed the public schools- and by people who support criminals over their victims, who are almost always poor people. Why did this war happen? It happened because the left, despite its focus on the poor, has almost always been controlled by the rich.

When the left adopted new issues several decades ago, these rich people refused to listen to those among the poor who protested. But while the lefts war against the poor goes back only a few decades, the fact that the left has been controlled by the rich ever since the left began means that the left has never really been wholly committed to helping the poor.

Instead, the analyses and policies formulated by rich leftists have helped rich leftists (who get to keep their wealth and to control the government) more than the poor. This book argues that a leftism by and for the poor will be strikingly different from leftism as it now exists. While Rich Peoples Leftism blames capitalism for exploiting the workers and wants a redistribution of wealth, Poor Peoples Lefism wants job creation.

The more jobs there are for the poor, the less they are exploited. It is job creation more than anything else that will help the poor escape from poverty.
