    changing the narrative is the corporate media's prerogative; their territory. Remember how the narrative changed last time there was a sustained protest movement in America. We were vilified, marginalized, beaten mercilessly, and eventually shot.
    Those responsible for creating the environment necessary for the Iron Heel to come down on us then are the same interests we are challenging now.
    I don't know how to prevent the inevitable marginalization, but we must forestall the repression that will be the first impulse of the Plutarchs. The teabaggers get fawning press for their little gatherings, but that will not be the tone used here.
    I don't intend to discourage anyone from doing what has become necessary, but we must be realistic about the reception we will be getting from the Village Idiots and their ruthless masters.
    I was in Chicago in '68. I have seen what they do when they are threatened. I have seen the result. That time it was a Nixon win. It will be worse this time if it goes according to their script.

    Class war has consequences, and we are living them.
