Step By Step Guide to Destroying a Social Movement

Quote:

we were peaceful. So, the media tried painting us as racists. But when that didn’t work they tried to goad us into violence. When that failed, they killed our movement with money and false kindness from the theocratic arm of the Republican party. That killed our popular support.

    “I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV’s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be. We know things are bad – worse than bad. They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, “Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.” Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot – I don’t want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad. You’ve got to say, ‘I’m a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!’ So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, ‘I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!’ I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: “I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”

    He won the Oscar for that performance after his untimely death. Very rare to do such a thing

  • I am mad as hell, too! I want to do something about all of this media, government, brainwashing, manipulating, corporate control. I am willing to join the “Occupy” movement. Is this the best way? Is this perhaps the movement of the middle class? It amazes me that the largest population of the US, the middle class, sits around ignorant to the obvious, continues to elect the ignorant, controlling, money owners of our country. Look at Greece. We are not far behind when they start squashing the middle class more to fix the problems they caused. Please tell me where to be and how to make an impact….or, should I just leave this country for the islands?

    @David:

    To make an impact, start living within your means. For example, cancel your credit card and TV subscription – this will give a minor stroke to the debt-based “economy”. For a major stroke, stop using official money at all. Literally – close your bank accounts. Disappear from as many registries as possible. Build relationships with human being around you.

    should I just leave this country for the islands?

    No point. There is nowhere to run. I am in my third country, and it’s the same nonsense.

    David. if you can. arm yourself heavily, stash the things that will help you and your family/friends and stand fucking firm…You are an American. We cannot/will not give up what was given to us with much bloodshed…AND theres will be bloodhed to keep it.

    The USA is the last stand on the planet for freedom…as mc said, same shit another country…

    “give me liberty…or give me death.” I not going anywhere.

    They told us to stop typing about the satanic gov. or they’d kill our goggle accounts. So we began to talk. They made it harder and harder to get bullets, and ordered more regulations, so we bought cases when they came on sale. When the paper script returned to its true value…worthless paper, they told us to spend more. We bought metal and left the banks to consume each other. Next they will come for our guns and our Bibles, and fearfully order us to take a chip in our forehead or right hand so we will be safe, and we can buy and sell without fear. Now those with wisdom sell their fear of man in exchange for the true value of fearing men…zip.
    At last we begin to fear the true God again, and pray before we eat, when we rise, and when we lie down, when we are walking, and when we walk no more we will pray a thank you to the True God that is the Creator, thankful that while we were alive we lived not as a slave,but as a free man.
