Don’t really mix, Brownfemipower has a excellent post up on why violence is a counter productive tactic. One of the best testimonials for this is the continued use of agents provocateurs by most police forces especially the political ones like the F.B.I. They want violence so they can have an excuse for a mass crackdown. The history of social justice movements in the 60’s is littered with examples of F.B.I agents not only urging violence but providing the materials and expertise to carry out acts of violence.
So if you’re any sort of social justice organizer or worker and are even contemplating some sort of violent action to dramatize your cause remember, you’re doing just what the police want.
