    even here. Because if the right gets its way, and basic needs are cut off as we increase the wealth gap, and you give people no choice, the next step is logically robbery and other crimes. And to be honest, how can a rational person not condone that course? I might get flamed or TR'd for saying it, but if given the choice between dying or arming myself and robbing some people, you best damned believe I'm robbing some people. Morals do dead people no good. Not that I really need to worry about it, but I'm just saying. That's truly why the elite are arming themselves to the teeth, they know what's coming as they use a flawed monetary system to hoard resources from the people.

    •  There's no 'we' in that statement (0+ / 0-)

      And I hope no one's foolish enough to fall for such flypaper.

      Because, sometimes, pointing out that you should be HR'd or flamed is a perfectly good marker that you actually should be HR'd or flamed.

          but anyone foolish enough to discuss activities on the robbery-to-Robin Hood-to-revolution spectrum on the internet just made themselves 100% unthreatening and much easier to pin down and neutralize.

          Free advice to prospective revolutionaries: Go dark. Go dark as quickly and as, well, darkly as you can. If you can.

          As for those who have left a prominent electronic grumble-trail?

          Recuse yourself from the struggle of your choice. Your presence will just get fellow travelers caught and perhaps killed.

        to see the point...And my mentioning it has more to do with the lack of intellect some people, like you, show. Either way.

    •  Well then, thanks for sharing o_O (0+ / 0-)
