You say a couple posts ago that Wall St., etc. isn't the problem but government is. (This I do agree with)
Yet, the title of this thread is "Why I support a violent revolution"...?!?
Government is - political action and control over the members, citizens or inhabitants of communities, societies and states.
Control is basically code for violence or the threat of violence...Basic ex. Forcefully sent to jail when breaking a law, whether the law is just or
The main thing that defines the state is it's ability and free pass (that we collectively give it) to use violence and the threat of violence. This
goes on militarily, to enforce laws, collect taxes, etc....
So basically, 'We need to now use violence because there are problems with the entity that we collectively allow to use violence." ???
First and foremost:
Playing devil's advocate and some sort of relatively size-able militia starting forming.. What would be the end game? Firing on the Pentagon?
Actually taking up arms against the world's biggest and strongest military in the world?? I don't even need to explain how that would end up.
(I understand that yes, if enough people withdrew from the military and didn't provide the numbers needed it would be a different story but I don't
think that's a likely scenario and the strength of it's weapons wouldn't even necessitate large numbers of soldiers, etc.)
I don't know the solution to the incredible corruption, etc. that we face today but I just don't think violence would amount to anything good
to say the least. There are other methods. As I've outlined in a thread of mine, I really like what philosopher Stefan Molyneux has to say about
these things. People need to really be smacked across the face with truth and knowledge about the actual workings of government, banks, military, etc
and thankfully this is starting to happen thanks to the internet. Even the many amateur youtube videos about conspiracy and such have exposed
countless people to a different perspective than the CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc. which never so much as bring up The Federal Reserve, profit incentive of
the military industrial complex, conspiracy, basic flaws in the structure of the system itself, etc..
I think we are at one of many turning points in history, pivot point, what have you...I guess violence will be attempted as a way to liberation
by many but I'm not sure it will be the best approach. I think if enough people simply withdraw from the state and collectively deny them the free
pass to use violence and the threat of violence under the cloak of nationalism, freedom, protecting us, etc., then great things will happen.
