“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower
“The object of terrorism is terrorism. The object of oppression is oppression. The object of torture is torture. The object of murder is murder. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?”
― George Orwell, 1984
“I believe that there will be ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don’t think it will be based on the color of the skin…”
― Malcolm X
“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.
The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.
Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.
Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
― Arundhati Roy, War Talk
“A revolution is not a bed of roses.
A revolution is a struggle
between the future and the past.”
― Fidel Castro
“But I suppose the most revolutionary act one can engage in is… to tell the truth.”
― Howard Zinn, Marx in Soho: A Play on History
“We have it in our power to begin the world over again.”
― Thomas Paine
At home, American police bureaus,militarized and armed with machine
guns, have been provided a license to
kill at will. And our president claims a
new “right” to kill anyone, anywhere,
any time, for any reason or without providing any reason at all.
This amoral and extralegal extortion has been extended abroad in more than 25 corporate wars of choice. And what is most terrifying is the American people have surrendered to this betrayal and treason.
This administration bombed ten non-aggressive nations in the past 10 years and continues brutal and lawless aggression across the globe.
With innocents executed at home and abroad, we are under attack and must stand up and fight back.
The revolution has begun.
“Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower
“Revolution is about the need to re-evolve
political, economic and social justice and
power back into the hands of the people,
preferably through legislation and policies
that make human sense. That’s what
revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.”
