Daily Kos Diarist Calls For Streets Awash In Blood By Ace
“It’s become more and more apparent to me over the past five years that all the activism and non-violent protesting in the world will do precisely squat. When you’re dealing with evil people who have no shame, the old rules of the game don’t and, indeed, can’t apply if you have any hope for success. Hundreds of thousands of people have marched, millions of letters have been written, tens of millions of votes cast, and hundreds of trillions of electrons expended pontificating on blogs…for nothing. Nothing has changed. Nothing will change. Not unless it comes in the form of something akin to the French Revolution.
We need terror. We need horror. We need the streets running awash in rivers of blood of these thugs and criminals and zealots. Activism didn’t prevent 60,000 deaths in Vietnam. All the activism of the Civil Rights era has gotten African Americans precisely nowhere. Segregation may not be the law of the land anymore, but it’s still the de facto state of America.
When y’all want to start throwing molotovs and sniping from windows come and talk to me. Until then, I will be content to retire, be a hermit, and laugh at everyone. Even then, I may still just feel like laughing as the world falls apart around me, but at least I’ll be willing to listen.”
Believe it or not, this Kosmonaut fears she’s losing her grip on reality:
“My mental state is collapsing and deteriorating almost daily. It’s so consistent you could practically graph it. Yes, they have a machine for that and everything. It’s called an EEG. And you should see this other cool machine they have… it delivers the most pleasant electric shocks to the frontal lobe of your brain. Some people swear by it!”
