Oh! There Goes That Violence Again!

Just like the terrifying smashing of an HBC store window, the casualty-free torching of an empty RBC branch signals the end of the world for some people.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, I'm not advocating violence. I'm just not condemning violence for the sake of it, and thereby enabling the fascist "response." (If the elites don't have an excuse for oppressing us, they'll make one up, don't worry.)

Because part of the climate for the crack-down is universal condemnation of violence against the system.

But if those FFFC-Ottawa folks were genuine, I have a thought experiment. Given the enormity of the crisis of global warming, and given the enormity of the Tar Sands project to contributing to global warming, might not the perpetrators of that fire-bombing be considered heroes to future generations, for doing what they could to stop the catastrophe while most everybody else blogged about doing something?
