Seattle's Non-Resisting Resistors
<table><tr><td>It is entirely evident to the authorities now, that those who supported Leah have ‘opted out’ of supporting her given her ‘release’. They are not unclear as to why. They are smirking in their soup as a matter of fact at the mediocre nature of the responses the ‘new’ day fighters made public. She is now going to feel the disappointment of her comrades, and be shunned. Isolated. Which, is very possible what caused this situation in the first place.
Whatever caused it, it is now clear that authority doesn’t play. This rebellion is not a game. And now it is time to ask yourselves if you are all in or if its time to retreat to a more suitable place to reexamine your purpose. Because those in authority are indeed quite clear that you are just as willing as they are to ‘use’ human beings to gain territory, regardless of what happens to that human being.
Good work kiddies, you have become your parents.</td><td><img title="Too late." src="http://anarchistnews.org/files/pictures/2012/family.jpg"></td></tr></tab...
Forgive her for being vulnerable to the prick authorities who have developed methods that you ignore. Forgive her for lurching forward in her ignorance and joining you in something you know nothing about, and have obviously not done your homework. Forgive her for succumbing to the machinations of the well heeled state, and then, forgive yourselves for doing to her exactly what the state does. You barged into a situation you were unprepared for, and callously threw her aside when she buckled.
You had several options. It is hoped that you considered them at the very least. If Leah was unprepared to tolerate the machinations of the state, it is preferred that you gather round her, debrief, and then either send her on her way to have some semblance of a life, or should she choose, use her as disinformation. She could lead these cowboys on a merry chase. If however, the damage done has crushed her soul, it is only humane to send her off to till a garden, pick the fruit so to speak, and prepare to endure the visits of said pricks whenever they need a patsy.
Should you ignore the options and simply plunge on in your ignorance expect the next weak link identified to undergo much the same. Will you ‘disown’ all who find themselves done in by the bastards? How very corporate… you’ve learned well how to cannibalize in the same manner as the state, so tell me now how this makes you different?! Explain this ‘new world’ you wish to fashion in such a manner?
It is evident that some attention needs to be paid to how your actions appear to the authorities. It is evident that you did not consider how it would be seen to ‘disavow’ Leah. Plant or warrior, inexperienced passion or intentional, she was and is now, a tool…. the question is … is she their tool? Or is she yours. Do you ignore her humanity? If you adapt to their standards, then what do you fight for? What is certain is that no one in this has done their homework and we are about to recommit to historical ground.
Our enemy smirks into their soup because they know how you will react to their machinations, their ugly commitment to protecting the business of capitalism. Like good little McLivers you pulled up to the drive up window ordered a large order of ‘grand jury shenanigans’ and then pulled away munching down what you’ve been lead to believe… that there is sustenance in quickly consumed reactionary conduct. There isn’t.
You owed the rebellion more. Undo this. Get down to business. Pay attention to the details the authorities ignore, and try not to embarrass yourselves again. Capitalist gatekeepers are well trained, unapologetic carnivores. You just fed them a lovely meal and her name was Leah. The state watches for the next feeding, starve them, … do not use the ‘media’ as if they serve you in any of this. If that isn’t clear enough, here is an outright piece of advice, tell that committee to shut its damn mouth and stop stepping into a spotlight they don’t control. Don’t use Leah further and call it punishment for ‘disloyalty’ when it was all about money and raising it.
The states soldiers watch for the next weak link, that’s a given. Do your homework. This rebellion belongs to everyone. Some were never meant to stand on the front lines. Some don’t even understand what happens on that front line. So now you know it is time to lose the address, and repair to the darkness of resistance, and don’t get caught. But to put it right out there this ‘group’ of protesters who claim non-cooperation with the corrupt system, cooperated by showing up at all.
