For all those timid souls thinking "Well, I'm not gonna do anything until everyone is gonna do something."
Screw that, pussies. Start local, local, local.
This has been tried before. Face facts: Half the reason Communism doesn't work is because it's Communism.
The other half is because the people - the very "workers" communists claim to represent, as a dodge to milk everyone - aren't communists. Proof: Russia pushed Nazi Germany from the outskirts of Moscow all the way back to Berlin. That's what Ivan can do when he wants to. But in peacetime? You get the Trabant.
So stop wishing and hoping, or pissing and moaning. Throw Leviathan and its acolytes a bone. But throw it sideways, so it gets stuck in its throat, and it dies a slow, lingering, painful death.
What do I mean?
