This Is What

The destruction of a
Republic looks like.

Some use anarchy as a tool for revolutionary change.  The condition of anarchy is like a vacuum where something rushes in to fill the void.  They work to break down the existing government with rioting and killing, looting and terrorism.  Tragically, those living in such chaos, under the pretense of "security", often go to those they think are  best equipped to put an end to it and beg them to restore order.  And who is best to put an end to the chaos?  The very people who started it in the first place.  The anarchists who first created the problem now have a government created and run by them where they have total power.  Any resemblance of the existence of a Republic is lost and replaced with an oligarchy, placing power in the hands of a few at the expense of liberty.



FRANCES FOX PIVEN: "I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are here are really wonderful. I would do anything to help them."
