  •  less Gandhi, more Battle of Algiers, eh? (4+ / 0-)

    Problem is, The Left in this country isn't built around worshiping violence and they're not heavily armed survivalists that fantasize about civil war.

    Unlike The Right in this country.

    •  Funny the beat Adolf and Tojo. (0+ / 0-)

      When the left bowed out and stayed out of the fight is when the shit hit the fan.

    •  It doesn't have to be the "left" (1+ / 0-)

      and it's not about survivalism. Otoh, I've often said the left ought to get over its aversion to guns. I'm a strong RKBA advocate. No, you can't fight laser retina fryers with a simple handgun, but again by that time tactics need to be entirely different.

      That said, there are lessons to be learned from things like the underground railroad and many heroic people who helped Jews escape during the holocaust. There's something to be learned from the "insurgents" in countries like afghanistan who, for all intents and purposes, faced down two of the worlds most powerful militaries over the last 40 years, practically continuously, and are not effectively defeated. Something to be learned from the Vietcong. Something to be learned from many people and groups who acted virtually alone against systemized oppression - and adopt ways to create a system of many prople , instead of one or two actors, toncounterbalance opressive systems.

      I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.
