Wouldn't making categorical statements about liberatory struggles be guaranteed to fail?

There's maybe an inevitability of any revolutionary fighting forces morphing in to the next set of cops and worse.

Probably best to assume that most of them will become victims of whatever meagre success they achieve as violent bastards commanding a grudging respect from the much larger groups of violent bastards. Very very rare to deploy violence without extreme polarization.

But then again, almost anything else that you could consider political activity usually seems to be even more bullshit spectacle? Not that violence is immune to spectacle obviously but raising the stakes high enough does seem to wither it away.
