American Socialist Unicorn and Fairy Revolution!

We need to define revolution. It seems like people left of center in the U.S. want to define revolution as seeking slow incremental changes. They tell themselves that they can incrementally transform the nation from oligarchy to a direct democracy and from capitalism to working class ownership of the means of production. That is not revolution or revolutionary that is Utopian fantasy.

I want to believe that it is possible to reach socialism via negotiation and legislation without force. I also want to believe in unicorns, fairies, and pots of gold at the end of rainbows!

Revolution is the forceful overthrow of the government and social order.

Americans who claim to be leftists want to believe we don't have to engage in the use of force because most are not willing to make the necessary sacrifices required to take down the U.S. Oligarchy and Capitalism. We Americans are by and large lazy and cowardly. Most Americans who claim to be leftists don't want an actual revolution they just want the warm fuzzy feelings they get from telling themselves they are revolutionaries.

I'm not sorry if I offend people with what I have written because we need to confront the truth before we can change. We have to be brutally honest with our individual and corporate selves. We must engage in constructive self-examination and call cowardice what it is and call out our illusions. We don’t need to feel guilt or shame that is self-defeating and unproductive. We just need to identify and change the illusions and habits holding us back from achieving equality and justice for all.
Let’s face the truth! We have got understand that our lives, our families, our neighbor's, and the life of the planet depend on the forceful overthrow of capitalism. The planet is dying at an alarming rate, so are people of color in the U.S. and around the world or being enslaved in prisons and jails at a genocidal pace at the hands of governmental terrorists called cops and military, so is the LGBT community and other minority groups, the poor are getting poorer and the middle class are becoming the new poor, and the cause of it all is capitalism. The capitalists are killing us and destroying the planet and they are doing forcefully and violently without apology or remorse.

Capitalism is class warfare and so far the Capitalists are winning the war and Capitalists are getting richer and more power and influential exponentially. There war machine is getting bigger, better equipped, better trained, and more violent and deadly by the hour. We see it in increasingly militarized police departments - American law enforcement officers are being sent to Israel to learn the tactics that Israel uses against the Palestinians and then coming back and spreading that training around the U.S. Some of those Israeli taught tactics were used on the Water Protectors at standing rock.

One of these days possible when it is too late for a real revolution we are going discover that what law enforcement, the use government, and paid mercenaries did to the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, North Dakota they are going to begin doing on city streets all around the U.S...

These are desperate times that require desperate forceful measures before it is too late before the planet decides enough is enough and we are all dead. The earth will only take being raped and abused for so long before she decides it’s time we all must die out of her own self-preservation. The earth will be here long after we are gone science and archaeology tell us that.

We have a choice to keep looking for socialist unicorns, fairies, and pots of gold at the end of rainbows or engage in forceful overthrow before it is too late.
