1905, in Russia, was the dress rehearsal for 1917. 1765 Stamp Act Rebellion was the dress rehearsal for 1776 and this is the dress rehearsal for the end of the corporate state. Stop asking yourself whether it’s practical, it’s never practical. Turn off your television, nothing you do in the eyes of the corporate media is ever going to be a success—you’re always going to be deemed a failure…and listen to the people around you and not the pollution pouring out of the airwaves.
I was in Leipzig, on November 9th in 1989, with the leaders of the East German opposition and they said maybe within a year there will be free passage back and forth across the Berlin Wall. Within a few hours the Berlin Wall, at least as an impediment to human traffic, did not exist. No one knows how movements works. No one know at point that spark ignites a conflagration.
