There are barbarians at the gate
The alarm, the double-bolt, the chain, the barred windows, the deadbolt, all failed
The children with their sharpened claws, the vicious guard dog, the chime, all asleep
It’s time for the owner of all to emerge
What scum, this thief, this rapist, this murderer, what devious scum
Heathen, dishonorer of law and all that is good in the world
Should the owner of all have mercy or have vengeance?
How should the lord of all purify his domain?
These are the only questions now
Ah choices, sweet choices, the Remington or the shotgun? (Testing mood)
The shotgun it is – safer in the dark, messier in the cavities it leaves behind
He walks toward certain death as a hunter stalking his prey, watchful, alert
He sees a shadow, lurking, hunched, leering in the kitchen
Wait for a clean shot, slowly, slowly
The shadow turns around with something in it’s hand! Oh no! Shoot, shot, shoot, shit, shoot!!
The shadow falls. Calm down. It’s over. Find a lightswitch.
Oh, it was the neighbor, that drunken no-good louse, stealing a salt-shaker and who knows what else
What a traumatic experience for me, my wife will comfort me, my therapist will comfort me
Maybe a support group will help, maybe my friends will help
If only any of them could do what the shotgun did – defended the castle
I assume by now that American leftist groups are well aware of the fascist monstrosities implemented by the American government against such groups, primarily through the FBI and secondarily through the police.
The logical extension of this knowledge is that every serious group needs to have both intelligence (spies inside the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, and police) and counter-intelligence (rooting out any governmental spies in their own ranks) programs. Not having these programs is equivalent to suicide.
As one might imagine, the situation is far worse today.
“It’s not about race, it’s about crime”.
Haha – God bless you.
“Yes, exactly. Of course, the very best cops are the ones who think like criminals anyway, who could have gone either way.”
That’s reassuring. “To protect and serve” or “To rob and murder”. Either way.
It surprises me that this is happening in San Francisco. So much for that “liberal” city.
We will never see social change in this country without this – the old optimism is long dead where the idea was to appeal to empathy, or concern. There is plenty of empathy and concern, but none in the hearts of the elite that the appeal is being made to. The elite can never be appealed to on noble grounds.
Which leaves various other methods. Labor strikes (organized and implemented globally) to starve the capitalist beast and bring power to the workers. Armed revolution or assassination to kill members of the elite or to suffer them loss of power. And finally, dominating their culture.
A form of cultural domination was successfully pursued in previous decades through the rise of popular culture, displacing the old “high culture”. But now the elites have embraced popular culture, so a new culture must be put upon them.
How about the culture of “the chickens coming home to roost”? The elite kill hundreds of thousands of people in Iraq and elsewhere, so human blood should be poured on them. The elite put millions out of their homes, so their homes should be damaged or destroyed. The elite impoverish the people, so their food should be poisoned. Even if actively pursued the amount of damage and destruction caused will be a minute fraction of what the elite are causing every day in human misery.
Some people are going around the world pushing pies in the faces of the elite. That has no effect except occasionally providing some media exposure. Why should we respond to vast death and destruction with pies? And then we wonder why George Bush holds us in contempt. At least the Iraqis are responding with bullets.
It is not morally acceptable to attack humans, but it is morally imperative to attack monsters. We have a lot of work ahead of us.
The first step, as always, is organizational. An organization “of the people, by the people, and for the people”, which then drafts laws, punishments, everything. A society within the American society. Once the organization gains sufficient strength (which means it must begin in relatively unthreatening fashion) it can implement more and more of its goals.
The original Black Panther Party served as a good beginning basis for this, other than it’s Racism. As long as a similar approach is taken except with a focus on class, not race, we can succeed.
Where most of these efforts fail is with respect to lack of community support. There needs to be not only weapons to defend from the inevitable police action (it doesn’t matter whether laws are broken, the police will strike regardless, acting in their primary role as a political police) but a broad base of community support in America so that the movement will grow after large numbers of people are put in jail, killed, and/or tortured by the police. That’s the only way to win.
The secondary aspect that must be addressed is the ability to root out spies, saboteurs, and provocateurs within the ranks of the organization. There must be a degree of knowledge about the people in the organization as well as the inevitably enemies that use this approach such as the FBI so that this isn’t an issue.
