It is time for the communists, the socialists, the anarchists, the greens, the civil libertarians to unite against our age old foe. FASCISM, it has come to America. Will we root it out? Or just act as if it is not so? Our great grandfathers and grandfathers are in shame at our ineptitude. 6 companies own 90% of our media. http://www.businessinsider.com/these-6-corporations-control-90-of-the-media-in-america-2012-6 10 companies control just about everything you can buy. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/27/consumer-brands-owned-ten-companies-graphic_n_1458812.html 1 family has more wealth than over 40% of Americans. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/waltons-net-worth_n_1680642.html The nation's 10 largest financial institutions held 54 percent of our total financial assets in 2010; in 1990, they held 20 percent. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2010/01/bank-merger-history

What will we do simply protest? It is futile against that kind of power to just protest. We must take power.

The police occupy our streets armed like soldiers ready to protect the elite. What will we do? Just occupy the bar or the couch? Will you just go to the university and concentrate on your studies? For what future are you planning? They are coming for everything you love and everything you hold dear believe that. So what will you do? I say we are running out of time.

I say we are running out of time.

I completely agree. But no one wants to listen to me. I've had some great suggestions, no one liked them. Ah well. Moving on.

I believe our only hope now is in God or Global Warming . . .

And no, I'm really not kidding.

yes, we are running out of time. it won't be long. could be a year could be 5 but soon they will have the internet kill switch, the drones, and conditions (economic most likely) in place to move forward with complete tyranny. if you think that the system (bureaucracy and corporations) will allow anyone to change it in anyway that would change the current stasis is either a fool or ignorant. little bitty occupy wall street with a few tens of thousands of people nationwide at it's peak absolutely showed that they will have no problem using whatever tactics they deem needed including the violation of civil liberties. what tactics will they use when the people are armed or absolutely belligerent which they never were. they were never explicitly confrontational. how will they react when people are? cause this shit is coming to a head and soon. in my honest opinion by the end of the fall we will see the totality of the police state. despite the soaring stock market and manipulated labor, inflation, and housing statistics people are well aware that shit is fucked.

you equate god with global warming?

Don't be silly. God had nothing to do with it. We did. We are the ones burning all of that fossil fuel.

you said "I believe our only hope now is in god or global warming". That equates god with global warming.gas and oil are not fossil fuels, coal is,

WHAT?

Not very good at math are ya?

  • Where X squared plus 3x minus 4 equals zero, we find X has two solutions: minus 4 and 1. Obviously, to say your checking account has a balance of minus 4 dollars is not the same as saying your checking account has one dollar. This holds true across the spectrum of mathematical applications, regardless of whether we are talking about checking account balances or quadratic equations . . .

    • in the quotation that follows: "I believe our only hope now is in god or global warming" the Iinguistic operand that you are looking for is the word or, as in:

    • minus four, OR one

And honestly, I really don't give a shit if oil is abiotic or not - yet it would seem that any oil or gas with a carbon 12 isotope is indeed a fossil fuel - regardless of what future research may or may not reveal about carbon 13 and carbon energy products associated with that isotope.

As a compliment protesting is awesome. As the only means, like anything else, its not.

Occupy was united against fascism in the beginning. The disorganization, desire for a park, and police beatings tend to take a toll on things.

Exactly you actually have to seize power. Labor needs to join with the anarchists and socialists.

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (13541) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

Anarchists have to wake up and recognize that while most of us will agree we need radical change, many if not most of us may not ascribe to the principle of anarchy as the chief solution.

I'm sure that if anarchists and socialists simply accept labor as it is, without attempting to change it, then together the ball may move forward.

i recognize that direct democracy at the very least must be guided by technocratic meritocracy. i am not opposed to split markets. there is a role for the worker, the state, and capital. capital however should never be allowed to own the means of production of the things required for an advanced society. that should be left to the worker or the state depending.

labor is the base problem from which all the inequality stems.

Help people to understand how we become "the masters of the congress and the courts through ART5.

[-] 0 points by antifascism (1) 1 year ago

I don't think most of these people even took civics in high school.

[-] 1 points by redandbluestripedpill (333) 1 year ago

Curiously, the method of becoming masters relies little on anything but common sense, human instincts and the structure of the constitution that empowers the best instincts.

The high school teachers did not know, history has been altered to remove that process. Letters between the framers were removed, forged, then reinserted to be "discovered". Our history, or the one that weakens us.
