dessalines_ comments on (excuse the DSA) A Reminder to the 'Apolitical'
Interesting analysis:
"I encourage everyone to join not only DSA, but also the IWW, /r/socialistRA, Redneck Revolt (the org I'm in), or any anti-capitalist organization (especially ones with armed praxis).

Contact those organizations and see if there's a branch in your area, and if none exist, start one. We have no time to waste; we are utterly disposable to capitalists, and they will continue to divide and conquer us until we arm ourselves and form organizations to defend our communities from racist and sexist terrorism and the police state, and unite into a fist to smash them.

Secondly, a warning about DSA, and democratic socialism in general.

A DSA branch in austin elected a cop all the way to national leadership position.

Beyond that, every country with a strong labor movement has a long history of social democrats and democratic socialists selling out workers, in favor of preserving liberal institutions, such as the capitalist system of laws and the police. This is pervasive, from the czech trade union movement, to the german social democrats siding with the state to kill Rosa in 1919. The reason is simple, and is shown in the phrase:

You can't fight city hall

Bourgeois democracy has had a few hundred years to entrench a system of laws that make positive changes for workers structurally impossible. There are dozens of restrictions and limitations that exclude workers from politics, such as the First Past the Post voting system (which enforces capitalist two party domination), gerrymandering, long term limits with no way to recall unpopular representatives, restrictions crafted to disenfranchise poor and minority voters, voter suppression, electoral fraud, unverifiable closed source electronic voting systems, capitalist campaign financing, low voter to representative ratios, and inconvenient voting locations and times, and most pervasive, candidate stacking. Most elections are performed before we ever get to the polling booth.

So the "democratic socialists" have had to make a choice between following the law, or breaking it to do some good for workers (of which Huey Long is the only politician I know of who did this).

Bourgeois democracy should be properly termed, the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, since it is systemically structured to support their interests.

Secondly, never be deceived that the rich will allow you to vote away their wealth. Bourgeois democracy is structured to be a dictatorship of the capitalists, it's systemically built that way, and it's impossible to undo bourgeois democracy within the confines of bourgeois democracy. We live in a class society, and no ruling class has ever given up its power without armed confrontation. The aim is to build a dictatorship of workers, and to do what's best for us, regardless of any set system of laws.

And for all the pacifist readers here, here's the logical conclusion of pacifism, expressed best by its leader, gandhi.

And lets look where bourgeois democracy got us. The US currently runs a system of slave labor camps, and has killed millions of innocent people in its quest for empire. We have jails and prisoned filled with the poor and destitute, and not a single capitalist has paid for their crimes of impoverishing the many to enrich the few.

Voting has never stopped one bit of any of it."

Eric Schmidt to dictators: 'You don’t turn off the internet: you infiltrate it' | Technology | theguardian.com
Governments have learned not to turn off the message, but to infiltrate it. Motherfuckers. ========================= I'm convinced the white knight in the book of revelations, the "savior" who turns out to be the AntiChrist is just a metaphor for how all bad things start -- with 'good intentions' as a starting point. Evil people know they are evil, so they can't just say 'We want to block all videos that criticise the government.' That looks bad - so they start by talking about child safety. ........................ "“It looks like people are going to use child safety as the starting point. Russia just passed a law nominally about child safety which pretty much allows arbitrary takedown of videos,” said Schmidt, noting sardonically that based on takedowns so far, Russian children must be particularly interested in videos expressing opposition to the regime there."

Secrecy at the Border - On The Media
1) Ship laptops and other devices separately from your person. 1.1) Full, encrypted laptop backup in the cloud 1.2) Full laptop encryption 1.optional) Do the TrueCrypt thing: encrypt only part of the hard drive on a hidden partition. This will make the hard drive appear smaller than what the physical label on the outside of the hard drive says, so get a label made to match the new size (or the "public", unencrypted portion of the hard drive.) ================= 2) Full cell backup & encryption 2.1) Remove anything "private" - Gmail, Goog Docs, private pics 2.2) Have a plan to get a temporary/disposable phone at your new destination 2.3) Forward Google Voice to the new ph# 2.optional) Use a decoy cell phone. Hide or ship your main phone. ================= 3) Tell multiple (non-traveling) family and friends when and where you are traveling, things to do if you disappear, in waves (for example: day 1: notify employer, family, feed petse, etc) after 1 week: these bills are due, day 10:

US the biggest threat to world peace in 2013 – poll — RT News
This is why you always have to provide an "out" for an enemy. Surround them on 3 sides. If you surround them on 4 sides, they have no choice but to retaliate. A smart empire would not surround the world and make it a boiler room - they would have a release valve like a pressure cooker so that the pressure never gets too high. Learn to "lose" a little, it could save your empire.

Duvamis? whats the purpose - Ask Community
Saw Duvamis commercial and tried to find what it was: CarmelaChiaramonte: 9:25PM on 6/1/2013 The Duvamis videos are a targeted advertising campaign for a newly developed social networking engine. It is designed as a support portal or community for those advocating social revolution. The question above is an excellent example of why movements like these exist today. (without any offense or pun intended) Human history has gone through some cyclical changes and paradigm shifts and thus we had the renaissance, the industrial revolution, etc.The paradigm shift that is occurring today is the result of the acute economical depression and political disaster the world is suffering. This paradigm shift has already been termed "THE AWAKENING" and it is the result of millions of people over the world coming together to rethink the way we live. Some very legit groups are taking the charge i.e TED, The Zeitgeist, the Occupy Movement and now Duvamis. All working in slightly different ways.....

TrueCrypt - Free Open-Source On-The-Fly Disk Encryption Software for Windows Vista/XP, Mac OS X and Linux - Documentation
A hidden operating system is a system (for example, Windows Vista or Windows XP) that is installed in a hidden TrueCrypt volume. It is impossible to prove that a hidden TrueCrypt volume exists (provided that certain guidelines are followed; for more information, see the section Hidden Volume) and, therefore, it is impossible to prove that a hidden operating system exists.
