We can break the will of those who oppose us, and this we must do. They are organized, and have put in play a program designed to steer our economy into a state of deregulation, and that program has been years in the making. The consequences are clear.

With that in mind, we have power, by virtue of our numbers. We can, lawfully, engage in mayhem.

We can encourage full scale boycotts. We can do more. We can use targeted interdiction and forms of direct action, to focus on individuals who oppose us and their economic interests. The Kock-suckers for example. They have interests in various money making enterprises. We can identify them. We can target the weakest. We can interdict the key players in such institutions, with flash mobs or by other means, disrupting their habits and schedules. We can, for example, simply deny them seats on the subway. We can frown, in collective silence. Where a babble is expected, silence can speak volumes.

We can target entities that receive goods of any kind. Identification of shipping routes, coupled with mass movements of people engaged in lawful activity, such as purchases at a single business, a business that is a delivery point, along the shipment route, can interdict transportation of goods in such a way that an entire chain of shipments is delayed.

Networking with unionized workers engaged in the shipping industry can result in assurances that transportation of several individual shipments on a given route are all favorable targets. Interdiction of this kind can result in targeting of several interests at one single point on the shipment route.

The possibilities are endless. As long as we engage in lawful behavior, consequence to ourselves and our movement becomes minimal. Where we reach out to adversely affected individuals and provide what assistance we may - where appropriate - we mitigate against their opposition to us on the basis of our tactics.

We can and we must hit our opposition exactly where it will hurt them the most. That is both, in their personal lives, and in their wallets.

It appears such suggestions terrify people. That's good, in a way.

There are many ways such an approach can be used - and many of those ways I do not approve of. I'm not suggesting we put anyone through any kind of program similar to what I have seen - even though I survived it I believe it was cruel, and most unusual.

Yet I say pieces of it can be used - whether this is right or wrong I leave for others to decide, for I am most certainly incapable of sound judgment on that matter.

I am not, for example, advocating the theft of trucks or their contents - rather, I advocate full parking lots, where trucks must stop to offload. As long as the parking lots are full of paying customers, the business involved can hardly complain. As long as the parking lot is so full the truck cannot off load, an entire chain of delivery becomes delayed.

We cannot as individuals, easily confront those at the top who have raided the 401ks of Americans across the country - but there are both legal and humane ways in which this can be done, using groups.

The Mic-Check is such a device.

So is silence when one expects a noisy hubbub.
