This is a documentary worth watching.
It goes into the freedom fighting group 'The Weathermen' who during the 70's in the USA went underground to wage a war on the US government in retaliation for the unjust Vietnam war.

The Weather Underground explores the unbelievable story of the Weathermen, the notorious group of 70 s radicals who, outraged by the Vietnam War and racism in America, went underground to wage a low-level war against the U.S. government, bombing targets across the country that they felt symbolized the real violence.

From pitched battles with police on Chicago’s city streets, to bombing the U.S. Capitol building, to breaking acid-guru Timothy Leary out of prison, this carefully organized clandestine network attempted to incite a national revolution, while successfully evading one of the largest FBI manhunts in history.

One of the top documentaries, this award-winning film interweaves extensive archival material with modern-day interviews to explore the incredible story of The Weather Underground.

As former members reflect candidly about the idealistic passion that drove them to bring the war home, they paint a compelling portrait of troubled and revolutionary times, with unexpected and often striking connections to the current world situation.

Well as they say in the doco:
Its impossible to be peaceful in the most violent society on earth.

They were fighting an enemy that killed babies in their thousands.

They got their name from a DYLAN song.

"You don't need a weather man to know which way the wind blows"

Rhymed with:

"Better stay away from those that carry around a fire hose"

I don't support our government in such actions and I don't support any other group wanting to kill babies to justfiy their means....Crazy doesn't fix crazy. I believe ideas like this come from a fart being released and climbing the spine and exploding a crappy idea into the brain.
