Better to be Feared
“If he is not ready to clean his house up, he shouldn’t have a house. It should catch on fire and burn down.” — Malcolm X
Protests should never be peaceful. A protest should be among the most destructive forces of nature ever witnessed, carving paths through neighborhoods and leaving nothing but destruction in its wake no differently than an F-5 tornado, particularly within wealthy neighborhoods.
Your moral condemnation is childish, weak, and altogether pathetic within a system wherein all the wealthy need do to protest pleas for humane wages and health insurance is sit back and indeed be peaceful as 1-million of you die and destroy each other over masks.
Those institutions of empire founded upon genocide and slavery that persist with inhumane domestic conditions in the face of a global pandemic as it wages military campaigns throughout the world and maintains a trajectory to global extinction have absolutely no moral authority.
If it is not clear to you that the entire system has failed when the annihilation of life on Earth itself is not merely a possibility but a statistical inevitability at the current trajectory, then yours is not an opinion worthy of respect, nor your life one of moral value to me.
You argue for your alleged divine right to possess weapons to kill those invaders who enter your home and threaten your peace and your family, yet here you are acting as invader of absolutely every home by prolonging the status quo, indeed, threatening my family and expecting me not to have a lethal reaction?
Within nearly every single ethical framework to date save pacifism, which I do not consider to be ethical at all but a cowardly form of nihilism, the magnitude of these crimes warrant a full-scale invasion, yet the only ones invading anyone are yet again those powers that be.
Do you know how absolutely weak, stupid, and morally repugnant of a population you have to do be to let this sort of social dynamic continuously occur? You all are absolutely an invader in my home and threaten not only my family, but future generations of my family, whereof this warrants nothing short of a violent uprising.
Washington, D.C. and Moscow should have both been reduced to a pile of smoldering ashes by its own citizens already at the first hint of escalating conflict, and if you believe this to be extreme, you are utterly broken, cowardly, and yours alone is of a passive complacency that ensures our extinction. And this, to me, is very much a threat in my home and against my family.
Whether power takes the form of oligarchy or racial hegemony, the response should only ever be the same and carried out within those areas wherein maximum impact is had upon those in power. This is not history, this is now.
