Hmm. (english)

Please explain to me how revolution comes out of love for one's nation-state (patriotism). I really hope that the revolution that is apparently going on now isn't out of love for the U.S. I hope it is out of a hatred for capitalism and the knowledge that another world is possible. Please don't cater resistance to middle-class patriots who only hate the Bush administration and would be happy with someone like Howard Dean. Please, make this about more than that, make it about the elimination of capitalism and the elimination of classes. For the sake of everyone.
COINTELPRO? (english)

I think that COINTELPRO was a bit more extensive than a person (possibly a police officer, but doubful, looks more like someone just harassing to get a response) arguing with you on the Boston Indymedia message board. COINTELPRO was in response to a real threat of violent revolution. I don't see any real threat of violent revolution here. And please don't tell me that this revolution is non-violent, because everyone knows that is completely irrational and illogical when faced with violence. Anyways, this isn't anywhere near COINTELPRO. Sure, it could possibly be, but don't start with the COINTELPRO rhetoric just yet, I think we're getting a little too anxious and there really is no place for hyperbole in political discussion.
