"To Change Everything...An Anarchists Appeal"
Anarchists and Anonymous are no longer underground, but are coming up and above it.
Legions of people looking not to change the system, but to violently overthrow it.
According to the anarchists' video propaganda:
"The more stable our structures, the less stable our lives...No piecemeal reform can fix this, we have to rethink everything to fix this."
They are advocating the power of the masses to overthrow ALL authority!
"The only way to secure the things we care about is to build a leaderless mutual aid network capable of self defense...to abolish domination all together...not to stabilize the system by reforming it. Rather than calling for more legitimate rules and rules...set our own agenda on our own terms...develop the power to act autonomously."
Unfortunately, with the extremely low ratings and low trust of the government, people are turning to anarchy instead:
"To change everything. Start everywhere."
The fearsome hacker group Anonymous's tag line is:
"We are a legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us."
So, while left and right are fighting and denigrating each other, the political system, and our institutions, and gridlock--rather than effective governance and progress--is the dominant force in DC, a frightening vacuum is opening up to those who seek chaos and mayhem.
Stupid, stupid, stupid!
Everyone is so busy fighting for a larger slice of the pie for themselves, that we are putting the entire societal pizza in danger of landing flat.
It's not just Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and ISIS taking advantage of the selfish and greedy aspirations of politicians and special interests in our society.
Those individuals and groups--internally--that distrust and dislike what they perceive as "Big Brother," and the arbitrary and abuse of authority, for power and money's sake, are sensing their chance to agitate, disrupt and overthrow the civilized society we depend on.
Apocalypse is not just World War III, weapons of mass destruction, and earth-shattering disaster, but it can be the disaffected masses that decide there is no reforming the system, only overthrowing it and taking their chance at chaos, rather than continue to live with corruption.
And if this is what people are reading in the Capital of the United States of America...if you are not afraid of this awful mess, you most certainly ought to be. ;-)
