Gabrielle Giffords needed killing

And so do most of congress, most of the regulators, and most of the businessmen in the revolving door between business and regulation.

All the conservative criticism of her seems to be disappearing off the web, but what the hell, she stank, critics pointed out she stank, so someone killed her.   It might have been a leftist who did not think she was left enough, but chances are, was a conservative. Yes, chances are that unkind remarks by conservatives got her killed.  Pity it was not someone who mattered more.  Her platform was to create lots of high paying jobs in government and quasi governmental activities – in other words, to transfer wealth from productive people who mostly voted against her, to unproductive people who mostly voted for her, thus moving the nation generally leftwards.

As the nation plunges into bankruptcy, as the Cloward–Piven crisis approaches, we might kill enough similar wrongdoers to eventually get out of the crisis.  I don’t really see any other path to resolving the crisis other than watering the tree of liberty in the usual fashion.

    This brilliant idea had been tried previously and, so far, hadn’t advanced the cause of

    liberty by one inch.

    But if you insist on painting bright target on your forehead, go ahead.

      In recent times, nothing has advanced the cause of liberty by one inch.

      The movements you refer to were supposedly in support of a proletariat, which proletariat, however, hated the movement, and the movement hated the proletariat. Successful Left wing “revolutions” have normally been coups by one part of the state apparatus against another – for example the French revolution, the Paris commune and the Bolshevik “revolution”, with the role of the supposed masses merely being to provide theater to legitimize the coup. The groups you list failed because they mistook their own propaganda for reality, and expected the actual masses to rally to them.

      The Cloward–Piven strategy aims to create a crisis that will provide an environment more favorable to revolutionary change. If revolutionary change ensues, may not necessarily proceed in the direction those promoting the Cloward-Piven strategy hope, since they themselves have succumbed to the same error as those groups you list.

      Our rulers have so indoctrinated themselves that they are the standard bearers of the oppressed and revolting masses that they are deliberately creating a pre-revolutionary condition. Prepare, therefore, for interesting times.

        Do you think the proletarians (or anyone else) are on your side and will rally for you?

          Real revolutions have always been made by the bourgeoisie, and there have been quite a few such revolutions. The proletariat merely appear in history as a stage army to bless coups done in their name.

          Tensions are rising because of the expected crisis induced by the Cloward–Piven strategy. The Tea Partiers are mostly people who are upset because they expect the the Cloward–Piven crisis to destroy their retirement income. When the crisis arrives, power will very likely fall into the streets, and the question will be who will pick it up. Maybe the tea partiers will pick it up, since the likely alternative is dire poverty under a “popular revolutionary regime” that will confiscate their wealth for “the people”.

          The underlying basis of the Cloward Piven strategy is that government has purchased itself a more and more left wing electorate, and the price is getting too high for the taxpayer to pay – so, the Cloward Piven strategy is (as the money runs out) to have a crisis followed by a left wing self coup, which the mainstream media will piously proclaim to be a popular revolution by the oppressed masses. The Tea partiers will necessarily respond with a conservative counter revolution.

            Just curious – which revolutions do you consider to be “real ones”? If French and Russian ones aren’t among them, what is?

            The Tea Partiers are mostly people who are upset because they expect the the Cloward–Piven crisis to destroy their retirement income.

            Then they are no revolutionaries. Revolutions are done for Liberty, Equality and Fraternity, for Truth and Justice, for God and Faith. Revolutions are done by young people willing to kill, die and sacrifice all for their cause, not by elderly quaking in fear for their pots of gold.

            When the crisis arrives, power will very likely fall into the streets, and the question will be who will pick it up.

            Most probably fundamentalist religion of the apocalyptic stripe. Have fun.

              The Glorious Revolution, the revolution that gave the word “Revolution” its modern meaning, the prototype of all revolutions since.

              The American Revolution, made in conscious and explicit imitation of the Glorious Revolution, whose example and rhetoric it invoked.

              More recently, and more resembling what I expect to happen in the next decade or two in North America, the Romanian revolution and the Georgian civil war.

              Revolutions are done by young people willing to kill, die and sacrifice all for their cause, not by elderly quaking in fear for their pots of gold.

              A lot of the fighters in the Georgian civil war were mighty old, and you will be surprised what people do when you threaten their pots of gold.

  3. Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?

    Thanks a lot!
