Macron gets tough—police applying more aggressive tactics to demoralize the Yellow Vests.

HELP ENLIGHTEN YOUR FELLOWS. BE SURE TO PASS THIS ON. SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON IT.
But the strategy won’t work. Because France has been boiling for years and the Yellow Vests is just the latest, perhaps broadest, manifestation—so far thinly led—of opposition to neoliberalism’s rapaciousness. Simply put, if the symptoms of the disease don’t disappear the backlash won’t either.

Revolutionary wisdom

Words from an Irish patriot—

 

“There are three kinds of violence. The first, the mother of all the others, is the institutional violence, the one that legalizes and perpetuates the dominations, the oppressions and the exploitations, the one that crushes and flattens millions of men in its silent and well oiled wheels. The second is revolutionary violence, which arises from the desire to abolish the first. The third is repressive violence, the object of which is to stifle the second by making itself the auxiliary and the accomplice of the first violence, the one that engenders all the others. There is no worse hypocrisy to call violence only the second, by pretending to forget the first, which gives birth to it, and the third which kills it. ”

Dom Helder Camara, Brazilian Archbishop and liberation theologian
