You Are Powerful, We Are Dangerous

By an anonymous DGR supporter

“Know thy self, know thy enemy.
A thousand battles, a thousand victories.”
-Sun Tzu in the Art of War

To defeat capitalist oppression, we must first challenge our negative thinking.  Believe in your strength, bravery and compassion and it will enable you to create lasting peace, health and prosperity for all  Know that by exercising your power you can defend us against an enemy that has divided us as a movement for change and weakened our resolve through media manipulations and operant conditioning.  United together we are unstoppable and threaten the status quo.  The ruling elite rightfully fears us.  We are dangerous.

Reject Trivial Culture
1) Realize that freedom in the in the 21st century is more than the base options chosen for us that keep us enslaved through addiction (i.e. drugs, alcohol, conspicuous consumption, video entertainment, social media, gambling etc.).  Understand that valuable time is stolen from us when we follow advertisements and chase the next best thing, person or sensation.  Refuse to become lost in a trivial culture, in a sea of amusements, while prison doors slam shut behind us.

Belong, Share, Band Together, Fight
2) Know that joy comes from belonging to a community and sharing with others, not from isolating oneself and hoarding resources as we are brainwashed to believe.  Free your mind and experience a revolution in values. It’s the first step needed to combat CIA directed psychological operations (PSYOPS) - the unconventional warfare used against us to override our survival instinct that calls for us to band together and fight.

The words of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. remain as pertinent in 2018 as they did in 1967: 

“We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”

“A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say: this is not just.” 

“This call for a worldwide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one's tribe, race, class, and nation is in reality a call for an all-embracing and unconditional love for all mankind”.

Advertise, Educate, Infiltrate, Expand
3) For the sustainability of all life on earth we must fight united against the ruling elite on a number of fronts concurrently to enable an anti-imperialist movement to take root and an egalitarian global society to develop.  Tactically we must expand our ranks both within and beyond the capitalist socioeconomic framework.  No enduring revolution has succeeded without support from some elements of the military and petty bourgeoisie , and without raising the consciousness of the proletariat.  As such, our movement must advertise, educate and infiltrate on a massive scale to: 

Defend the Environment
4) End environmental rape.  Green is the color of the direct action revolutionary vanguard party in the twenty-first century.  While the poor are disproportionately affected by natural disasters and those engendered by climate change, as well as illness from pollution, pesticides and genetically modified food, all life is negatively affected.

End the Global Police State
5) Dismantle the global police state domestically by closing prisons, repealing the Patriot Act, and defunding the Intelligence Community.  Internationally it can be done through defunding the military, and by ending US interference in the affairs of autonomous countries: be they through covert methods (i.e. soft coups, legal harassment, nefarious NGOs and fake human rights organizations, social media lies, embargoes, blockades etc.); or through open warfare (i.e. troop and mercenary deployments, drone strikes, assassinations, menacing military maneuvers, bombing campaigns, and use of biological, chemical and nano weaponry etc.).

Consider that for fiscal year 2019, the US Senate passed the $674 billion Defense budget by a vote of 85-10; and Congress passed the $81 billion Intelligence budget by a vote of 363-54.  Clearly, most democrats and republicans support war and repression.  Within this context, and across a spectrum of issues, when our politicians cease to represent us, and our government is held captive by an oligarchy that seeks war and destruction for profit, then the political system must be abolished as represented in the Declaration of Independence.

 "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Keep in mind that the Intelligence budget is far greater then what’s reported as it is supplemented with secretive black ops funding from CIA directed drug and weapon trade that bypass governmental oversight, as exposed in the Iran/Contra scandal.  And, In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital nonprofit, creates tremendous wealth for the companies and individuals it favors. 

Dismantle the industrial economy
6) The brutal industrial economy has failed miserably.  Its inherent contradictions have merely served to: concentrate great wealth into the hands of the ruling elite; poison our atmosphere; create wars; famine; exploit our labor; torture and imprison us; and divide us by race, gender and religion.

Identify the Ruling Elite & Expose Their Crimes
7) To accomplish a systematic and focused take down of imperialism, we must create a most wanted list of the ruling elite by using the surveillance states intrusive technology to our advantage.  Connect a name to a face, to an address, to a phone number and to a crime.   Start by making most wanted posters of the top 50 most politically active elite and list beneath their photos their crimes against humanity, both domestic and international.  All the required information is available on-line.

Develop the list by creating a search algorithm that includes bankers, industrialists, retailers, media moguls and members of silicon valley that are billionaires.  Cross check their political activity, stock holdings in the defense industry, and companies funded or connected to the CIA venture capital nonprofit In-Q-Tel.  Identify the ruling elite that provided financial and technological backing to Nazi Germany, were instrumental in the recruitment and relocation of 1,660 Nazis (Operation Paperclip), and funded unethical and murderous medical experimentation involving eugenics, mind and population control (MK-ULTRA, ARTICHOKE etc.), under their directed think tanks, nonprofit organizations, medical institutions and universities.  Within these numerous categories, the names Rockefeller, Morgan, Ford, DuPont, Carnegie, Harriman, Koch and Mellon often rise to the top.

Empower Everyone to Contribute to the Struggle
8) Empower everyone to do something, on some level, to support our struggle against the ruling elite, especially educators.  Protestors, photo journalists and writers point your finger in the face of the perpetrators of environmental, national and global violence, and graphically show: what a US bombing run looks like to those who live in Syria; what torture looks like to Sandinistas in Nicaragua; what plastic, petrol, pipelines and radiation does to our oceans, to our wildlife and to humanity.  Artists create culture via t-shirts, posters etc. that graphically explain our cause.  Hackers develop websites and software that track and expose the elites every movement to destroy their privacy and undermine their effectiveness.

Coopt the Expendable Tools of the Ruling Elite
9) Remember politicians, soldiers, police officers, small business owners, and white nationalists etc. follow orders and are considered expendable tools by the ruling elite.  In their arrogance, they fail to realize how little their lives matter until it’s to late for them.  They are misled through greed, fear of scarcity, blackmail, misplaced loyalty and/or a fake sense of importance. We must change their consciousness and expand our network through their alliance.  We need comrades on the inside to succeed.

Raise Consciousness
10) The Black Panther Party was able to raise consciousness in the black community and positively influence the hardened minds of street gang members though its children’s food program and social outreach.   Using this as a model, white radicals must awaken “redneck” and “hillbilly” Americans despite an aversion to their racial and gender politics.  While it’s essential we combat the Alt-Right and Nazi party anytime they attempt to rally, it is also critically important that we infiltrate their communities and positively influence their children to disrupt their indoctrination into a world of fear and hatred.

Malcolm X and Fred Hampton refer to community development thru consciousness raising as “work” because it’s not as glamorous or exciting as combat.  We need to swell our ranks and limit theirs if we are to see long-term permanent progress.

End the Surveillance State
11) Know that if the ruling elite did not fear our collective action it would not have empowered the Intelligence Community to spy on us, discredit us, infiltrate us, harass us and ultimately kill us as it had done with the Black Panther Party, Women’s Liberation Movement, Occupy Wall Street, and now with the Black Lives Matter and numerous direct action environmental and animal rights groups under COINTELPRO.  A three page index of FBI investigations against civil rights leaders is listed on its website.  If the ruling elite did not fear our thinking it would not use PSYOPS against our minds. It would not deflect the anger and despair of the uninformed to wrongly believe that immigrants, people of color, women and liberals are the cause of their personal suffering.  It would not defund our schools and universities and make the cost of education prohibitive.  It would not change school curriculum to foster automaton workers, and discourage critical thought and analysis.

Translate News Media
12) Understand that the mainstream and alternate news media has failed us.  It’s been bought and coopted.  As such, we need to be our own news translators.  Anytime we hear the US supports a foreign government, translate it to the US supports a subservient puppet dictatorship that allows US corporate theft.  Anytime we hear the US considers a foreign government “authoritarian” and “undemocratic” and seeks regime change to “help its people”, translate it to the foreign government is autonomous and has independent leadership that protects their natural resources and labor from US corporate plunder.

Ruling Elite Unconcerned with Human Rights
13) Know the interests of the US are the interests of the ruling elite and their corporations, and not our interests.  Believing that they care about humanity on foreign soil any more than they care about humanity on domestic soil is absurd.  If you’re unsure, just ask our 2.3 million prisoners.  The United States has the largest prison population in the world, and the highest per-capita incarceration rate.  Or, just ask our 400 school children that are victims of gun violence since 2012.  Or just ask our 2 million people suffering from cancer from polluted drinking water, soil, food and air.  Or just ask our 41 thousand immigrants in detention centers.  Or, just ask our 321,000 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year.  Or just ask 100,000 of our children that are sold into human trafficking each year.

Lastly, just ask the families of our martyred leaders, Malcolm X, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Fred Hampton, etc. about the meaning of democracy and freedom of speech in the United States of America’s police state.

Organize as Green Humanity, Avoid Identity Politics
14) While we intuitively understand that knowledge is power and that in unity there is strength, with PSYOPS they continually divide us and mislead us into forming special interest groups focused on identity politics.  Don’t let them.  Most importantly organize as one power block, as Green humanity.  Dismantling imperialism in the name of humanity protects our environment and natural resources both nationally and internationally, and provides space to resolve racial, gender and religious inequality. Uniting with the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) nations preserves mother earth, our homeland and ensures our personal freedom.  Turning our back on foreign policy in an attempt to prioritize domestic policy or the inverse will never work.

As in gardening, pernicious weeds must be uprooted to be destroyed or they will continually crowd out all sustenance.  The weed in our garden is the ruling elite.  They stand behind the institutions and lackeys that oppress humanity. 

In the words of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. “A time comes when silence is betrayal.  That time has come for us.”
Speak out; be loud!

  1. I don't disagree that the 14-point program outlined here would be great, but how many times have we read lists like this one? We've known for decades that industrial civilization was in a planetary death spiral. There's not one item on this list that political critics/radicals haven't identified and excoriated. The question is what are we supposed to do to realize such agendas? It may be that as the world continues to fall apart, as the great extinction continues to accelerate, there may be a sudden opening for the politics that are inherent in this critique. But right now, most of the world appears to be careening towards authoritarianism rather than liberation as a response to the anxieties people naturally feel as uncertainties about the future increase. So I find lists like these to be fairly unhelpful at this stage, instead of strategies for realizing all these objectives.
