For a couple of years now I have been writing posts entitled Daily Agitator…these were post about things that just pissed me off in general…..but I have taken another step….I now have an on-line newspaper by that title…The Daily Agitator and I hope that my friends here will read it from time to time…..after a couple of days of tweaking…I think it is set……(he said with fingers crossed)…..
“Organize, agitate, educate, must be our war cry.” Susan B. Anthony
“Agitate! Agitate! Ought to be the motto of every reformer. Agitation is the opposite of stagnation – the one is life, the other death.” Ernestine Rose
My early days on the “New Left”, that would be the 60′s and 70′s, I have been an agitator….I even use to go by the name of Maximus Agitatus……..to this day there are still a few that still call me Max…….so it was a natural thing for me to start my paper and call it “The Daily Agitator”…..I do so enjoy making people mad….when they are mad they look for details to refute whatever it is that I have said to piss them off…..when they do that….they learn….and that is what I wanted the entire time…….
Please stop by and read and if you like it then please tweet it to others…..Info Ink and I would appreciate the help….Thanx, my friends…….

OWS has been going on for a month and until recently they could not buy media coverage but all that has changed….there are too many people protesting in NYC and across the nation and globe for the media to ignore any longer…..I have watched and listen to conservative shows and one term seems to be very popular with them…..Anarchism or Anarchists. I detest the use of a derogatory term because you have nothing else to say. Let me say, if a person is dressed on black or wears clothing with a circle and an “A”…..does NOT make them an anarchist! If you take nothing else away from this…take that!
They report that these people, at least some of them, are issue less or not knowing or that they are just seconds away from violence or…..anarchy! According to them…they are everywhere!
Sorry, this is one of those subjects that I cannot overlook……every protest that turns ugly is because of the damn anarchist…they are everywhere!
Anarchy does NOT mean violence….it is a form of socialism…basically it means the simple absence of publicly recognized government or enforced political authority. It became associated with violence thanks to the media. In 1886, May 1 to be exact,Chicago was one of the world’s leading centers of labor activism. The burning issue of the time was the fight for the 8-hour work day. On May Day, the workers of Chicago went out on a one-day general strike. The next day, thousands gathered in Haymarket Square to protest the police violence at the McCormick plant. At the end of the rally, the police moved in. Suddenly, a bomb exploded. And from that moment on, any violence at a protest has been because of the anarchists. I am NOT saying that anarchists are not violent just that all violence is not the fault of anarchists.
Why would I say all this? There are many forms of anarchy…there is council communism, syndicalism, and even a form known as anarcho-capitalism……I mention the last form of anarchism because it is it that has given us the economic problems that we now face and that we now need to eliminate….
Basically, the anarcho-capitalist wants to eliminate all government regulations and the government programs such as welfare in essence, Libertarian thought……they do not like being called an “anarcho-capitalist”……..the regulation part was achieved by Clinton and his gang of bandits when they with the assistance of Repubs repealed the Glass/Steagall Act…..which in effect serious limited the regulations on the financial sector and we know where that has lead us……I wish people would stop holding Clinton up as some sort of hero…..him and his buds at the DLC put the final nail in the economy……give blame where blame is due…..
Anarchists crashed the economy…….anarchists created the atmosphere that has lead to the protests, OWS………..my point is that not all anarchists are the bomb throwing stereotypes that the media would have you believe…..I realize it is difficult for the media to be unbiased….but at least they could get it right once and awhile…..
