Here's a good article to read about the prison industrial complex and it explains how the repression is building up in the US by having your tax
dollars spent more an more on military and police rather than on education, social services etc etc
Now the thing is this:
-they get rich building the prisons.
-military and police gets stronger powers to repress
-politicians create new laws that make it easy for normal people to break -the law and go to prison
-families are broken up (fathers in jail, mothers forced to work without rasing the children, children grow up without guidance)
What is my point of all this?
Look for the cause of problems and work towards fixing them. Not on symptoms. Sure you can have the training to fight physically, but remember that
the reason the right has so much power is partly because you were asleep for a long time and kinda let them get so powerful through your tax dollars
and feeding the beast.
Unless people around the world help to wake you up over the coming problems of the future (an entire country that is going to be imprisoned and forced
to work as slave labor) you won't know how to prevent the problem from returning after you've taken control.
So what I'm saying is: plan for the future first. Stay calm. Look at the problems that caused this all to happen. Create a solution to get out of the
current mess through non-violent means.
Without so much funding for the military you wouldn't be in so much danger of a police state. But to undo what has been done you first have to
understand how the problem began from the beginning and educate children on it. When you get the age of the other members here, you can be safe in the
knowledge that those kids won't be the ones to suffer under a police state.
It's not yourself you should be worrying about, but the future generations who will not even know why they are in the state they are in and just
accept it as normal to be imprisoned.
So educate them first (which is what people are doing so that they have a sense of fighting for what's right as opposed to fighting for selfish "me
only" reasons) and then worry about the training to physically fight after.
If you die and the generation after you doesn't know why you are fighting, the corrupt leaders will try to spread propaganda that makes any
resistance seem evil to them. What you want is for the message to live on after you are dead, you know what I mean? Kinda like the spartans fighting
in 300 and needing to have the story be told after the've struggled against unfair odds. When people hear about it, the multitudes will rise up and
maybe after you and other fighters trying to gain back freedoms you feel are lost, will be able to rest easy that the masses will carry on the fight
when you can't do it any longer. (due to death, or being too old)
So what I'm saying is: you have to undo what has been done piece by piece by first identifying what happened to get this way. It might sound like
boring way of fighting, but it's the most powerful because people will generally follow their convictions about what is fair if they can sympathise
with you due to being able to relate to your experiences. Kinda like how Rock/popstars are able to get little kids to follow them and influence how
they think, but the difference is you are not trying to be selfish and gain money, but fight for a higher cause. Not everyone will be able to fight
physically, but they can still fight in other ways and it all adds up.
It's just that the tone of your original post sounds angry at all those who sit at their desks vs those who want to do something physical. But there
is the need to understand the problem and look for a long term solution to it so it can't return in later generations. What I'm saying is this is
how you get lasting effects - education.
