#thread Ne nous y trompons pas. La réthorique déployée par #Macron dans sa #Lettreauxfrançais est ultra puissante. En prenant à contre pied tout ce que nous lui reprochons: destruction de l'hôpital, santé, éducation ( les enseignants seront libres) celui ci use d'une ⬇️
Puissante désinformation dont les #LREM et ce gouvernement ont le secret. Ce n'est non pas du mensonge, mais juste le parfait reflet inversé de notre légitime contestation. Si le premier public visé pour cette propagande d'état est bien les #retraités en recherche ⬇️
De stabilité et d'une pseudo sécurité, il ne faut pas oublier que nous sommes investi dans un prisme guerrier et que la peur distillée depuis des jours va agir comme un cataliseur dans les urnes. Seul les bouchons de cire dans les oreilles, permettront de ne pas entendre ⬇️

对于中国朋友来说,这是一个很好的机会,以思考这个随时都有可能变成紧迫和致命的问题,即:如果您的国家与其他国家之间发生战争,您会怎么做?

这比战争本身更可怕,更复杂。

这篇文章很重要。

局势:俄罗斯关闭大片黑海和几乎整个亚速海进行军事演习。

2月13日至2月19日,俄罗斯计划在黑海地区进行 “导弹和大炮演习”。当地记者担心俄罗斯正准备从海上封锁乌克兰港口。

自 2021 年 10 月以来俄罗斯一直在乌克兰边境附近增兵,现在在周围有大约 140,000 名士兵。

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of ordinary people is an enemy of ordinary people – because socialism is precisely about protecting ordinary people.

Lie about that and what else will you lie about?

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of the economy is an enemy of the economy – because any fool knows the economy's real enemies are those who strip away its assets and hoard away its wealth.

This thread is regarding #GunRelatedCasualties:
As an #anarchist/#LibertarianSocialist/#LibrarySocialist I think the problem lies within the way in which we integrate others into our cultures and educate our own communities. A strong centralized or even weakly-associated
government always has a chance of making poor decisions and this keeps us in a regressive situation. The ratchet effect is clear indication of this in the US.

Mandating things won't change people's skewed internal perspectives. Yelling at them won't either or making them
pet projects on one issue. This is a communitarian situation. People must have conversations and reach an agreement. I am a strong proponent for direct democracy. If people have the right community-based care, rights to means, and access to assistance this person with

Some exs of Rag Tag Militants that created #Anarchist Wars miserably & failed to live up to the expectations of their followers->
1. Congo after removal of Mobutu
2. Iran after removal of Shah Reza
3. MENA Countries that embraced Arab Spring
4. Lebanon Civil War
5. Afghanistan
it's very easy to give a call to arms and declare war against the status quo.
We have seen many famous leaders who turned from being promising #revolutionaries into lunatic #populists, and later mutated further into #Anarchists.
Iconoclastic fervour always fails!
Where Iran stood before the ouster of Shah Reza and where it stands today is to be seen by all.
The Iranians were promised a complete social and economic revolution package based on a religious interpretation of problems and methodology by the Clergymen.
Iran turned into a Pariah

I just spit into a tube for my employer. So my keycard would be "unlocked" and I could get into my very own office. Where my property has been for very many months. Now yeah, I guess #COVID19 means this is just what #workers do now. But here are #disability implications:
-- my spit, which has my DNA of course, is now a QR code
-- my employer now has access to my DNA
-- my employer now knows I'm on #opiates
-- my employer now knows I'm on #Lexapro
-- my employer now knows things about me that I don't even know about me b/c I've never given DNA
In return for this enormous amount of data I've just given my employer, what do I get? Access to my property, that is, my #poetry books, my #journals, my mementos from across a decade & etc

Nicolaas Schermerhorn (1866-1956), nederlandse #anarchist predikant, schrijver, en pacifist, - Nicolaas was een invloedrijke spreker en activist in de antimilitaristische beweging, mobiliseerde de mensen in het tumultueuze 1918 en schreef en verdedigde voortdurend dienstweigering Image
Een stem van de vroege anarchistische beweging in de Lage Landen die het ontdekken waard kan zijn. Hieronder een stukje van hun tekst, - "Het christendom tegenover militarisme en oorlog" (linkje naar biografie ook: anarchisme.nl/namespace/nico…)

#VB #anarchisthistory
"Waar het #Christendom komt met de prediking van liefde als hoogste gebod, waar het durft verkondigen der mensen broederschap, uitgedrukt in het bekende “gij zult uwe naasten liefhebben als uzelf”, daar is toch waarlijk geen diepzinnig betoog nodig om duidelijk te maken"

Van #LAG:

Vandaag vertellen we graag over Gennaro Rubino, een Italiaanse #anarchist die in 1902 een (mislukte) aanslag pleegde op Leopold II.

Eerder dat jaar, tijdens een betoging voor het algemeen enkelvoudig stemrecht in Leuven, schoot de burgerwacht op de menigte en 1/3 Image
...vermoordden ze 6 betogers.

Volgens Rubino, was Leopold daarvoor verantwoordelijk, en, naar de anarchistische mode van de tijd, plande hij een aanslag op het staatshoofd. Hij reisde naar Brussel en vuurde 3 kogels af op de koning, maar miste. 2/3
Hij werd overmeesterd en stierf jaren later in de gevangenis van #Leuven, niet zo ver van het monument van de gestorven arbeiders die hij wilde wreken.

Prettige Belgische feestdag!

"So it is #action which is needed (...) In taking action, we are working at the same time for theory and for practice, for it is action which gives rise to ideas, and which is also responsible for spreading them across the world. But what kind of action shall we take?" Image
"But what kind of action shall we take?

Should we go or send others on our behalf to Parliament, or even to municipal councils?

No, a thousand times No! We have nothing to do with the intrigues of the bourgeoisie. "
"We have no need to get involved with the games of our oppressors, unless we wish to take part in their oppression. ‘To go to Parliament is to parley; and to parley is to make peace,’ said a German ex-revolutionary, who did plenty of parleying after that."

"Op de Anti-Gifgasoorlog-Conferentie te Frankfurt (1929) verklaarde een Duitsch scheikundige, dat het ergste van den modernen krijg zelfs niet de gruwelijkste strijdmiddelen waren, maar het ontzettender feit, dat de moderne mensch het normaal was gaan achten..." Image
"op overheidsbevel zijn medemenschen bij massa’s te vergiftigen, wat in zoogenaamden vredestijd de criminaliteit reeds merkbaar beinvloedde. Inderdaad komen oorlogsgifgassen uit vergiftigde geesten, oorlogsbakteriën uit besmette gemoederen voort. "
"De moderne samenleving is slechts een uiterst geciviliseerde vorm van barbaarschheid, die aan individueelen en collektieven waanzin grenst, en er telkens in overloopt. Niet alleen alle kuituur, zelfs het naakte leven van ontelbare menschen..."

Bart de Ligt. #pacifist, #christen, #anarchist. De weg naar onze bevrijding moet door de ontmanteling van het meest wrede wapen van de staat gaan: militarisme. Oorlog is geen ongeluk voor de staat, het is het natuurlijke gevolg van de constructie ervan. Image
Het werk van De Ligt is een lichtend voorbeeld van pacifisme en antimilitarisme, zeker het onthouden waard.

Hieronder kun je meer leren.

"De groote massa moet dus in een bepaalde stemming worden gebracht: haar gansche wereld- en levensopvatting principieel vervalscht. De haat tegen den te bestrijden “vijand” wordt dan ook met de laagste middelen aangekweekt."

@lukeobrien confronts @MrAndyNgo about the lies that he pushed about journalists being "#antifa" from Eoin Lenihan that lead to journalists being put on a kill list. Lenihan was in a chat with extremists, saying racist things, but Andy says he still supports Lenihan #atomwaffen
@MrAndyNgo says the #atomwaffendivision kill list video is troubling, but attempts to minimize how disturbing. He doubles down on his support for Lenihan, suggests people read his work, admits he was an editor for @Quillette at the time, and says its upsetting because its true
@MrAndyNgo's dishonesty exposed again when he claims those memorializing an activists death wrote messages on @multcodems building by "calling for police to be killed." Not only is this false but fuels #state surveillence of activists(video in article)

When looking at the violence on the streets in Chile keep in mind this footage of riot cops snorting cocaine before heading off to batter protesters
Keep in mind that Chile is now one of the most unequal countries in the world
Keep in mind that Chile is ruled by a Billionaire former businessmen

There's an old Chinese saying 天高皇帝遠 (The sky is high up & the Emperor is far away), meaning if u stay away from the centers of political power, ur relatively free from State control. Yet the modern State is so intrusive there's almost no escape even if u hide into the woods.
The State was a recent development in the long stream of human history, but nowadays most people can't imagine life without the State. Many people, especially those on the Left, even believe in expanding State power for more bureaucratic social programs.
As an #anarchist, I believe in community self-governance. Instead of letting career politicians high up there dictate how we're supposed to live, ideally we ought to take the power back into our hands. That, of course, will require drastic reorganization of human society.

Also, some light reading 😉 #Anarchist
“Certainly, anarchists have frequently defined themselves first on the basis of what they reject -the state, capitalism, inequality, patriarchal society, war, militarism, repression in all its forms, authority- rather than on what they have defined as an alternative” Carlos Taibo

Right-wing extremists were already on spy agencies' radars canberratimes.com.au/politics/feder… via @canberratimes
1) A reasonable analysis, to which I would add a few things. First, ASIO notes that: 'Individuals motivated by other ideologies [than Islamist extremists] – such as an extreme left or right-wing ideology – may consider conducting an act of terrorism.'
2) That's why a no of ppl in some way assoc w anTEEfa stuff in AUS have received visits in the past few years. Further, concern over left/right extremism is not brand-new; it was also noted in the agency's 2010--2011 report. See : slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=27201.
