Radicals around me from the far-Left, mainly anarchists, Marxists, and non-affiliated anti-fascists, since Obama was elected, have been up in arms about the looming potential of maybe losing their arms. After another example of mass death via the easy accessibility of mass-murdering weapons, Democratic politicians in the US are trying again to reform the legalize-faire laws on guns. People I know are saying guns=revolution, that they, as a small minority in arms, will have the ability to stop the neoliberal-State and/or fascist-State.
I am unapologetically an anarchist, I have experienced mental illness in my life, and I do not own a firearm. I know the word ‘anarchist’ scares people, because the corporate media has done a damn good job of misrepresenting what the movement is all about. It’s not like they’ve ever done that before. Why would a corporate media owned by billionaires ever smear the beliefs of anti-capitalists? Really, we aren’t that scary though. We have never started a war, owned a slave or committed an act of genocide. We’re doing pretty well, I’d say.
