‘Noam Chomsky killed Aaron Swartz’
Thanks to the loyal 5FF reader who sent this in. Lots to agree (and disagree) with.
Note this comment well:
Having been raised on the false narrative of the civil rights movement – that it was civil disobedience and a plaintive cry that was heard by decent people – my generation (of Whites) tried it out ourselves, becoming anarcho-communists and occutards. It took the abject failure of Occupy for me to consider that maybe the courtesan history of the civil rights movement was written by the victors; in fact, I would discover it was actually a decades-long campaign of barratry and intimidation. Occupy was not; of course Occupy failed.
