Who's read The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein? Coronavirus

Will provide opportunities to this fascist admin. What should we prepare for?

Not be afraid of. Do not be afraid, be prepared.

In preparation please read The Anti-Coup and From Dictatorship to Democracy by Gene Sharp (former University of Hawai’i Peace prof and later worldwide resource in how to resist authoritarianism and build peace) as founder of the Albert Einstein Institution in NYC.

https://www.aeinstein.org/

It’s brief little booklet that’s 5 bucks or read it free from the Albert Einstein Institution here: https://www.aeinstein.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/TAC-1.pdf



The Albert Einstein Institution is a nonprofit organization founded by Dr. Gene Sharp
in 1983 to advance the study and use of strategic nonviolent action in conflict.

We are committed to the defense of freedom, democracy, and the reduction of political
violence through the use of nonviolent action. Our goals are to understand the dynamics
of nonviolent action in conflicts, to explore its policy potential, and to communicate this
through print and other media, translations, conferences, consultations, and workshops.”

2. They've already captured two

and a half branches of the government. We have us and civil disobedience is going to become a useful tool. The sooner we start using it, the better. We can only expect of our elected officials the use of the power we gave them and if we must, we have to take it away. Not sure how that can be accomplished, maybe after I listen to this I'll have some ideas.

4. I've read it. Any crisis will do...

anything that ginns up fear and disorder will allow the takeover.
