    Terrorism in the modern sense really only works in a global mass media environment, which didn't exist until the latter part of the 19th century. I would consider "propaganda of the deed" as the advent of modern terrorism.

    Don't worry, we all know you're a total pussy and would be too scared to do anything that remotely looked like uprising against your government

    I know I'm responding to a post from 4 years ago from a banned member, but we technically had a war of independence, not a revolution. Federal Farmer was advocating terrorism in the hope of turning it into a revolution, but his goal is not at all the same as a war of independence.

    So in this armed revolution exactly what do you propose people take up those arms against then? What are the chains that will be "dissolved"?

    Yeah, his fellow voters actually did it...
    4 years later and most people thought it was a bad idea, but they did it...

    yeah... wondered for a second if he might see where all the rabid disinformation leads, then realized that was an exercise in futility...

    I see my interpretation of your words in this thread is "dumb" @The Ghost of Crazy Horse

    Perhaps you could help us understand better by clarifying the actual meaning of what you wrote.

    I believe the operative assumption here is "if you call something dumb by clicking a button instead of by typing it, that means you don't have to explain anything."

    Agree for the most part, but some posts (q.v. oldfella) are so damn dumb there's really no other way to mutter "Oh, hell no!" and just walk away.

    I think it’s dumb that you think that I want everyone on the right to be like the ones who stormed the capital.

    Didn't you openly call on everyone (including those on the right) to storm the capitol (at the very least) over Hillary's emails? :shrug:

    Actually it was that you sure as hell seem like you want them to be, which does seem that way based on your posts in this thread.

    If it's not the case then perhaps you can elaborate what you actually meant this thread to be an argument in favour of.
