    I know that my position here is the right one, and not following it would be very unwise.

    So, I put it out here and hopefully enough people see it and the idea spread to those who can implement it.

      for a number of reasons... the most practical reason is that no amount of violence by a group of civilians can match the amount of violence that the cops and national guard are capable of dishing out.

      The only way for popular uprisings to really win, and win big, is when they can convince the 99%-ers that make up the bulk of the Police, National Guard, and Military shock troops to take the side of the protesters, quit working for the 1%, and start doing their REAL job, which is guarding the well-being, health, and welfare of their brothers and sisters in the 99%.

      When you can get the cops and the guardsmen on your side, then you win, period. Fighting them makes that harder. Shaming them and teaching them through behavior and example makes that easier.

      The only way to ensure a free press is to own one
