  •  thank you. in this world there are two (10+ / 0-)

    types of people:

    fighters and flighters.

    IMO when you're fighting for your life, all bets are off.  I think the differences we have now are differences in the perception of whether or not we're actualy fighting for our lives. Those of us who believe we are, literally, are more willing to take and accept extreme measures of self-defense. I couldn't agree more with this diarist on this point:

    Incidentally, many of us are more than happy to proceed according to that amoral dictate if we find it to be necessary. And, increasingly, we have found it to be so.

    I'm not hacker. I wish I was. But form of "amoral" is a but different and should it come to it, I'm not squeamish about any of it. It's normal and healthy to be self-defensive. Every animal does it by instinct and only humans have an "override mechanism". This can be good but it can also be bad. This revolution will take all types. I applaud Anonymous for what they do. I applaud OWS for what they do. And when things progress, there will be increasing numbers of us who will take different measures and I applaud that as well.

    It's not hard. We're fighting for our lives here.

    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.
