Stanley Kubrick's film the Clockwork Orange, was a glimpse at a possible violent future. A Nazi, Authoritarian Fascist Dictatorship under the Toxic Orange, would be just as bad.

It takes more than deconstructing supremacists to UNDERMINE RACISM -

We have to also dismantle the long established, cancerous structures within the status quo which have permitted it to continue to provide us privileges and deny others their supposedly inalienable rights.

Otherwise we remain complicit. As someone pointed out to me online recently, there is a "shame bus" which most white folks ride, even those of us who chant platitudes while we march.

For example, TODAY, at this moment, there are hundreds of thousands of people in prisons, enslaved, who would likely not be there if they were white.

Will chants and prayers and vigils and marches to counter-protest supremacists set them free?

What then, will it take? At the least, a political revolution!

But if that doesn't work, a physical revolution, an actual nationwide mass action, analogous to the storming of the Bastille prison that commemorates the French revolution -

THAT revolution is also commemorated by the guillotine, which showed the 1% of those days the error of their ways.

Without justice, there can be no peace. But that has to be more than a chant mouthed in unison during a march, it has to become a fait accompli, an accomplished fact.

When do we want justice? When do OUR prisoners want freedom?
Good read from Peter Laarman, it takes more than love!

PROPERTY AND AUTHORITY

"Royalty was at first elective, because -- at a time when man produced but little and possessed nothing -- property was too weak to establish the principle of heredity, and secure to the son the throne of his father; but as soon as fields were cleared, and cities built, each function was, like every thing else, appropriated, and hereditary kingships and priesthoods were the result. The principle of heredity was carried into even the most ordinary professions, -- a circumstance which led to class distinctions, pride of station, and abjection of the common people, and which confirms my assertion, concerning the principle of patrimonial succession, that it is a method suggested by Nature of filling vacancies in business, and completing unfinished tasks."

"From time to time, ambition caused usurpers, or supplanters of kings, to start up; and, in consequence, some were called kings by right, or legitimate kings, and others tyrants. But we must not let these names deceive us. There have been execrable kings, and very tolerable tyrants. Royalty may always be good, when it is the only possible form of government; legitimate it is never. Neither heredity, nor election, nor universal suffrage, nor the excellence of the sovereign, nor the consecration of religion and of time, can make royalty legitimate. Whatever form it takes, -- monarchic, oligarchic, or democratic, -- royalty, or the government of man by man, is illegitimate and absurd."

"Man, in order to procure as speedily as possible the most thorough satisfaction of his wants, seeks rule. In the beginning, this rule is to him living, visible, and tangible. It is his father, his master, his king. The more ignorant man is, the more obedient he is, and the more absolute is his confidence in his guide. But, it being a law of man's nature to conform to rule, -- that is, to discover it by his powers of reflection and reason, -- man reasons upon the commands of his chiefs. Now, such reasoning as that is a protest against authority, -- a beginning of disobedience. At the moment that man inquires into the motives which govern the will of his sovereign, -- at that moment man revolts. If he obeys no longer because the king commands, but because the king demonstrates the wisdom of his commands, it may be said that henceforth he will recognize no authority, and that he has become his own king. Unhappy he who shall dare to command him, and shall offer, as his authority, only the vote of the majority; for, sooner or later, the minority will become the majority, and this imprudent despot will be overthrown, and all his laws annihilated."

–Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
