FREEDO, please list for us the steps you have taken to violently overthrow the United States government, and please be specific. No rhetoric. What have you actually done? We're listening.

So far I've only converted a few people to Anarchism.

But I've done a insane amount of hard work to make sure I can get out and do the real work as soon as possible.

I got myself to graduate two years early.

After I get my permit and then my license I'm planning on seeking emancipation.

Do you have a job? If you have no money coming in, then this all fails.

Okay.

So, you've got your license, you've been emancipated, and now you've graduated. How exactly are you going to violently overthrow the United States government?

And now I'm going to the county fair to sow seeds of discontent in the hearts of the unsuspecting public.

Uh, that's not necessary as demonstrated by MLK and Gandhi.

Not the point.

FREEDO says he will violently overthrow the US government. I want to know how he specifically plans to do this.

Oh, I wasn't aware of that.

Freedo, you plan a violent revolution??

I admire Freedo's enthusiasm, but in a nation - or rather a demi-continent like the USA - it's not a realistic prospect.

It happened in Russia, I know, but those were different times.

I don't wear a seat belt, I jaywalk and once I even downloaded a song illegally.

Also, propaganda of the deed may be something FREEDO should look into if that's the way he think he would be most useful to the movement.[1]

Personally, I think that violence is generally counterproductive and it only serves as an excuse for the state to grab even further control over our lives and build a resentment for anarchism and anarchists and trust for government in general.

However, breaking silly laws like seat belt laws and laughing at the government and the rulers in general helps bring about a general disrespect for government and its laws that is most helpful.

I'm against seatbelt laws, but not wearing them is just plain dumb. I'd rather show my rebellion through blatant disregard for speed limits :D (not in city or residential areas, of course).

MLK started nonviolent resistance in the fifties. Nothing happened for a decade. Then, in the sixties, the Black Panthers and Malcolm X showed up, and suddenly there was progress. Coincidence? I think not.

I don't buy that. The Black Panthers resorted to threats and violence. Malcolm X was a nut job until he grew more open-minded as he grew older.

It's a lot more comfortable.

As would I, but I wouldn't risk doing so without a "driver's license" or even a "learner's permit" which I am having trouble acquiring as every time I enter the DMV, I am filled with such a great righteous fury that I fear that I will do something I will soon regret and so I take my leave.

If by "progress" you mean "people in government writing words on paper that represent the idea of equality," sure.
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Oh, I didn't mean to offend you, I thought you were being sarcastic.

See video.

If you're causing no marginal harm, you ain't committing no legitimate crime.

Fail video.

It forgets the obvious point that when you copy/illegally download a song, the difference between buying it and not is the money. You essentially rob the artist of an opportunity that would've given him money for his work, and instead got the same product without the charge.

If you somehow went up to me and magically copied my car, and drove away, you're probably clear to do that (in a moral sense). But If I distribute material I created for the purpose of selling it, and you figure out a way to obtain this material without purchasing it, then how the hell more clear does it need to be?
