Tomorrow is Halloween and according to the FBI the popular custom this year will be that of an ANARCHIST!
From time to time the DHS will issue warnings of possible terrorists attacks or civil disobedience….actually most of it is just fear mongering….so far they have been less than accurate (polite way of saying “fucking wrong”)……
With Halloween approaching most people are concerned about what custom their child will wear and what “treats” will they get……but not the FBI….they are warning of possible attacks, of all things, anarchists……
The FBI has issued an alert to police warning anarchists dressed in Halloween costumes plan to create disturbances and attack responding police.
The “Halloween Revolt,” according to the federal law enforcement agency, is planned by the National Liberation Militia, a group reportedly from Eugene, Oregon, and said to be responsible for violence in Seattle during the World Trade Organization conference in 1999.
According to the New York Post the group is calling for members to wear Halloween masks and use weapons such as bricks, bottles and firearms.
First of all….what the Hell is ANARCHY?
Anarchy is a confusing word to define, since it has several possible definitions. The word comes from the Greek word anarchia, which simply translates as without or lacking in authority. In the modern sense, it may be used negatively or positively, but most often, the word is used in a negative sense to imply a complete lack of order.
In another sense, anarchism may refer to the idea that people would better profit without a government of any kind. Anarchists believe that most people can govern themselves and would be happier doing so. Within this idea of self-government, as opposed to government by the state, fall many theories of how lack of a government could possibly work. There are questions of whether people, for instance, have the same currency, be asked to abide by the same laws, or have any types of organized assistance.
It would be hard to argue that all individuals are capable of doing this. For instance, in a society that is deliberately anarchist, there is the question or what would be done with a person who was severely incapacitated by mental retardation. The person might not be able to act in his or her own best self-interest or for the welfare of the society. If that person had no caretakers, it’s unclear what provisions in an ungoverned society there would be for caring for such a person.
About here my reader knows that there has got to be a history lesson in here somewhere, right?
You are in luck!
Anarchy is a form of socialism……it became associated with violent protests back in the 1890’s……a group of anarchists at a labor parade started acting violently and the media immediately made it the tenet of anarchy……and it has been used in that context ever since…….
As they say in “Starship Troopers”…….”would you like to know more?”
Is this a true threat or is it just the FBI attempting to look as if they are effective? (Something that they desperately need….good PR)
Or better……has the FBI been punked?
