SpartanKingLeonidas, I wonder what your namesake would think of your idea of non-violent action when he opposed the army of Persia? What would the
signers of our Declaration of Independence say to your recommendation of non-violence and remaining within the law when they broke every law in the
book to form a new nation? Every single one of those men knew that if they lost the war they had started in defense of their rights they would be
convicted of treason and hanged. How can laws which are unjust to begin with not be broken in the fight against such tyranny?
My namesake does not live in this day and age.
Back then and during the Battle of Thermopylae
warriors fought toe to toe.
Leonidas would think the same of Anonymous
as I do now that they are cowards.
Fighting with servers, hacking, and long distance attacks, as did Xerxes and the Persians.
On top of this Leonidas fought for his country, foregoing the corruption, sidestepping it legally.
He became a free-man, with his 300, and with 11,400 other Greeks, who fought to stop a hoard.
My original post stands as I said it because free men do not hide and fight illegally.
They learn to use those laws, and bypass the corruption, instead of flaunting those laws.
The laws are written to defend a country, whether you agree with them or not, they favor lawful action.
However, knowing those laws, as policy, procedure, and protocol, you can use them to fight too.
The terrorist group Anonymous
steps into illegal action anytime it makes threats.
In my lifelong mission of being a conspiracy theorist many people mistake me as anti-Government.
This is a misnomer and wholly incorrect.
I am anti-corruption within Government, even if that walks hand in hand, at times it is the same.
A Government, take your pick of which one, is nothing more than a functionary unit, or organization.
It is the people within it who are to be held accountable and if those people will not acquiesce?
Then you force them to stand for your principles, through legal means, through non-violence.
Otherwise you make a God-damned stand and plant your feet firmly and steadfastly.
There are many, many more ways to fight corruption, then to become the very perversity you fight.
