It'll be interesting to see how this group will react to the new laws and funding most governements are rolling through (upgrades on sedition, funding for more riot police and bigger prisons). Within a couple of years, we'll go to protest and probably get bundled up into police or military trucks and thrown into prison.
That police-state/marshal law government power petty compared to what we have -which is numbers. We just need the nationwide -and eventually global- coordination to inact a non-radical or extreme course of action, to replace the current systems of government with a Cooperative for the People, a system that works.
Exactly -when we say "we have to do this, we have to do that" to bring about positive change for the People -we have to remember that the individual can only do what he/she can do -especially if you have a family to take care of; they come first no matter what -others who have less responsibilites can act on their behalf.
And since posting artworks that feature various figures like Einstein, Nietzsche, Bertrand Russell, McLuhan, McKenna as well as Anonymous doesn't count like "doing shit" I don't have to worry about getting caught .. right? Right!
So your entire comment is a bit out of focus and utterly irrelevant.. isn't it!?
I suppose this has as much to do with Atheism as Atheism has to do with Anonymous. That being said, I've noticed a lot of the Mormon kids in my area are a part of anon and not being anonymous about it. Only mentioning it because of its placement in the dAtheist group.
There is no connection. "I don't believe in an entity that can not be proven or disproven to exist" is not the same as "I disagree with the people in charge or that there even should be people in charge" Man made is not necessarily bad.
On another note, they're not man made. Command structures, territory lines, the "protect us from them" mentality is found EVERYWHERE in the natural world. We, like apes, chimps, wolves, ants, bees, cats, birds, whales, dolphins, etc. have a system of protection for our own.
It's good for them to do it because they're not us, and it's bad that we do it because we're human is an invalid point.
There's a strong disconnect between God(s) and power structures. They're no where near the same thing.
You tend to make bold statements about vague things .. and that always signals strong believes .. so I'm not going to argue.
Both god and power structures ARE functioning as authority figures because you choose to perceive them as such.
You can repeat your mantra for another 100 times and seek endless excuses for one of those two authorities - but that connection won't fade away. And more than anything - I really don't care what do you believe.
