Hai

While i was sick, i finished Rick and Morty (best show ever), read a book about Patty Hearst and the SLA (idiots), and another book about the death of Sonny Liston (tragic story, had hard time caring). I put down the philosophy book because I was delirious and Kant and Hegel didn’t make any sense and were giving me a headache. Then i felt better and realized that this wasn’t because i was sick.

  1. It was always so crazy to me that there were organizations that believed bombing shit and robbing banks would gain them public support to rise up and take back capital to the workers. Idk. I read about The Weather Underground recently and it send so far fetched that it’s members believed it would work.

    • One man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist. But even if for the sake of argument there were injustices in 60s America worth being violent about, killing Marcus Foster was a cowardly and despicable deed. The SLA were scumbags.

    • “It was always so crazy to me that there were organizations that believed bombing shit and robbing banks would gain them public support”

      It worked for the anarchists at the turn of the century (kind of) and some of the early Leninist factions in Russia. But they were appealing to starving, desperate masses for whom “nothing but your chains to lose” was reality, not just a slogan. The revolutionary wave of the 1960s broke on the shoals of low- to middle class inertness and complacency (with the exception of the Civil Rights Movement).

      • You’ve hit the nail on the head. I had a buddy of mine when I worked at the bank, that said something similar. Everyone likes to say that a new revolution is just around the corner, but people have too much to lose. You really need to have nothing in order to be willing to truly revolt, or have conditions so bad that you’re willing to lose your home, your family, and your life. “Nothing but your chains” is probably the exact quote he used as well. He was a Russian history and philosophy major.
