The Pledge | 8th February 2018 - YouTube
arguments against violence don't hold up in a perverse violent opressive environment. (see hedges, cornel west, Malcom X, etc) especially if your elite "fellows" sell you down the river (barack Obama eric holder and co). Or see Vietnam, Buddhists burned themselves (self-immolation) up because of the injustice and their beliefs. Or Bobby Sands et al. Indefinite hunger strikes. Or Guantanamo/AbuGhraib if I am not mistaken, people there went on hunger strike. //&! - Suffragette //&! the women who chose to sit in protest on the bus in the white section, and the what followed blacks entering white establishments. a knowingly intentional provocation not answered by law and order but by public violence. //&! or the 2011 uk youth riots - debatable, but a grain of salt, violence answered w violence in this case looting ... what else? a bank? which is an impossibility. or looting your neighborhood block of flat Grenfell? // especially institutionalized structural oppression regime against minorities. or institutional disadvantaged.

Cornel West and Richard Wolff talk about Capitalism and White Supremacy - YouTube
individualism tends to capitalism (each their own coloured widget) vs individuality of the individual. don't mistake the one for the other and you can't achieve the same happiness and well-being with just individualism because it is also based on constant consumption. // what people leave out of socialism and the pundits decry over it. is democracy. democratic socialism. // Plutocracy is undercutting its ability to survive! Problem, the system will take us down with it. // We got ecological catastrophe on our doorstep. Nuclear catastrophe. And Capitalisms catastrophe. //&! Ceased all power and rendered the citizen powerless. This is no capitalistic democracy. This is crony capitalism. - Chris Hedges June 8, 2015 - - capitalism has no internal constraints. remove external constraints & it will see & use everything (private free market enterprise) as replaceable & commodity w a price (even the planet): the environment, workers health. &! non-violent revolution!
