Yes they are right wing whackos.

But their theory suggests there is a chance for change in about 20 years from now.

Socialist, Anarchist, and even Communist parties are growing in numbers faster than can be explained simply by a growing population.

That all came to a head in the 20s with the Palmer raids

But back then the real weapon - the printed word - was harder to mass produce

And underground distribution was limited

Today, however, we have the internet

Imagine a national strike coordinated via the internet

Imagine the elimination of the stock market

Imagine revolution without a single bullet shot

No bombs, no killing Presidents*


* By this I am referring to the McKinley Assassination by an Anarchist
