Response to Summer Hathaway (Reply #45)

Thu Aug 23, 2012, 09:29 PM

51. I'd written a rousing reply and lost it in a browser hiccough.

 



You are correct, and I am correct. The time is now, and the possible damage unimaginable if they are allowed to win. I shouted about this in 2010 and was correct. I can see the same thing again gathering at a far greater level.

I am of course not the voice of Occupy; no one is excepting consensed statements from the GA. I am attempting to motivate as the time is now. They will definitely neither slow down nor stop at any time; we must slow them down, stop them, to win.

I -am- an absolutist. I'm bipolar. However, I am also correct about the need for us to step up and stop them before they stop us. The increasingly militarized police state should be an indication of why; that, and the increasing narrative of "protest and you'll get some of this" where used to exist the 1st Amendment. See the RNC in Tampa; they've emptied a jail of 1700 beds in anticipation of "mass arrests". Five or six of those arrested in Chicago at No NATO are still in custody. I know one of them personally and he is a good man in bullshit circumstances. The longer we wait, the more they increase the mechanisms against us. No one seems to care about militarized police, nuisance arrests, political prisoners, and the obvious death of the 1st Amendment (and the approaching death of the 4th as the FBI ransack homes and apartments looking for "anarchist" literature). They've begun doing pre-protest arrests to attempt to staunch the flow of free speech. We must act now in such numbers they cannot do anything but return the power to the people.
