Keep up the good work. Don't change a thing! (Expect troll posts, they get paid to spew).

Thumbs Up!

no, actually i'm an (A). I just found the music to be a little self aggrandizing/romantacizing. If you assume that everyone with freindly criticism is a paid reactionary then its no wonder that the movement goes no where

as a member of the radical youth alliance i want to say thank you very much for making this movie, i really like it and i think the song works fine (sure its a little silly, but then again, we're dancing in the movie!) its splendid
On negative responses...
02 Oct 2005
You've really got to wonder why anyone would choose to express their negative feelings about something as unimportant as the music track when the cause is good and the activists are fighting the good fight. If a negative comment about the music is the only thing that comes to your mind upon watching the film and you are really an anarchist then all I can say is who needs you?

Ya man... down with 'negative responses'... peace and love dude!

Seriously though, this romantiziation of struggle has done nothing but charicature anarchism. Let's be honest about our failures and move foward. 30 people showed up, and that's good. Let's focus on what can be done to improve that, rather than paint what happened as some sort of 'heroic spectacle'.

Who is the more effective reactionary agent, one who criticizes or one who urges people to ignore all criticism and to 'keep the course' in favor of 'good feelings'?
Good feelings motivate.

There is no point in revolution if it won't make people feel better about their lives. Anarchists don't get paid to fight the system, so they might as well get a rise out of their work.

If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution.l

Your right, the point of revolution is to make people's lives better. But the point of revolutionary activity is to achieve revolution, not to have fun. That doesn't mean the two are mutually exclusive, but one is primary over the other.

If your in this to make friends or feel better about yourself, I would suggest picking a new hobby.

I read the bickering here, and decided to watch the movie, expecting to hear something completely different. Who can complain about Twisted Sister? Good choice, lighthearted but rousing.

Keep it up kids!
