When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence 7

Western Rifle Shooters Association

In response to recent articles in mainstream military journals discussing the use of the U.S. Army to quell insurrections on American soil, I offer an alternate vision of the future. Instead of a small town in the South as the flash point, picture instead a score of U.S. cities in the thrall of riots greater than those experienced in Los Angeles in 1965 (Watts), multiple cities in 1968 (MLK assassination), and Los Angeles again in 1992 (Rodney King). New Yorkers can imagine the 1977 blackout looting or the 1991 Crown Heights disturbance. In fact, the proximate spark of the next round of major riots in America could be any from a long list cribbed from our history.

We have seen them all before, and we shall see them all again as history rhymes along regardless of the century or the generation of humankind nominally in control of events. But the next time we are visited by widespread, large-scale urban riots, a dangerous new escalation may be triggered by a new vulnerability: It’s estimated that the average American home has less than two weeks of food on hand. In poor minority areas, it may be much less. What if a cascading economic crisis, even a temporary one, leads to millions of EBT (electronic benefit transfer) cards flashing nothing but zeroes?

  1. John Robb says that in drone warfare your best defense is an offensive capability. I think the same principal applies to 4th Generation Warfare in general, and is touched upon in this author’s article with regards to defending against home invasions. Probably the best thing to do would be to use the security analysis tools put forth by Bruce Shneier in his book Beyond Fear.

    I think this author’s focus on and opinion of the minority underclass is likely due to his background and audience. While I don’t advocate rampant criminality, I understand the frustration felt by this class of people. I am not raised from this class, but a number of my family belongs to it, and I was certainly raised among them.

    The author states:

    But, I look forward to seeing the white cosmic liberals, Hollywood deviates and other leftist ethnics reap the harvest that they and their political contributions have sewn.

    But we may say the same of the authoritarian right; that their War on Drugs and dismantling of any and all forms of self organization among underclass minorities (Black Panthers, AIM, and to go further back things like tribes and clans among my people) will lead to this class exploding in wanton violence against any and all who have something to take. This is why ATS/ARV has identified underclass minorities as a key demographic for an anti-state alliance. They have the ability to self organize, they have a history of being oppressed by the state, and they have the will to fight.

    An alternative interpretation of these sort of riots is offered on this website: The Rebellion in Los Angeles: The Context of a Proletarian Uprising.

  2. “I think this author’s focus on and opinion of the minority underclass is likely due to his background and audience. While I don’t advocate rampant criminality, I understand the frustration felt by this class of people.”

    But does the “minority underclass” understand or even care about the frustration and plight of the non-minority middle class? This point must be addressed clearly before any theoretical alliances are brought into the discussion.

    “ATS/ARV has identified underclass minorities as a key demographic for an anti-state alliance. They have the ability to self organize, they have a history of being oppressed by the state, and they have the will to fight.”

    I very much doubt the self-organizing capabilities of UMs are as stellar as they are reported to be. The fact is UMs have long benefited from the organizational support of NGOs, political groups controlled by DWLs (disingenuous white liberals) and Chosen Ones and even Corporations. There are billions of (non-minority) dollars behind the supposed “grass-roots” organization movements of these minority demographics.

    Their “will to fight” seems more like a pathological obsession than a drive for freedom. Even when comfortable they attack anyone they perceive as “the Other” unless assuaged with bribes of some form. And when “the Other” is not available to expropriate or beat up in flash mobs they fight among themselves, with brutal violence and great gusto.

    Are these really the kind of people one wishes as allies in a confrontation versus the state?

    And the whole “minority” issue, with its “oppression” narrative does not really pass the smell test when you look at it closely. There are many places in America where these minorities are actually the majority and are in political control of the region. The result isn’t some anti-statist utopia or even an inkling of such, but decay, poverty, degradation and authoritarian corruption of such 3rd World levels it shocks even the most true-believing DWLs. And this sad sort of affairs is maintained at the expense of millions being poured into those areas. Imagine how much 3rd-world-like they would be without them.

    Rather than an alliance, perhaps it would be a better strategy to get the hell out of the way when the fertilizer starts hitting the rotating device and focus on self defense and self organization. Let the minorities spend themselves fighting the state and vice-versa. Two weakened adversaries are than facing a strong one.

    A third possibility could be to hold back until the confrontation reaches its peak, then joining and infiltrating the statist side. Once the tide is turning and the minority demographic is being successfully quelled, it would then be time for a “night of the long knives” where selected targets of the regime would be removed from the picture and the political structure usurped and taken over for the benefit of the middle class.

    Then, ending the War on Drugs, and foreign wars, and all that jazz is just a matter of fiat by signing a piece of paper. And while we’re at it, sign for doing away with minority welfare completely too. Then once the state is out of everyone’s back, everyone will be happy, right?

    I don’t know. I think the minority underclass might have a thing or two to say (or shout, scream or fight) about that.

      This is a function of the police state attacking minority communities and having any and all organic, authentic forms of self-organization replaced by the welfare state with token minorities put in place to pull the levers and keep their rank and file in line. This is why we here at ATS are critical of both the welfare and warfare state.

      Rather than an alliance, perhaps it would be a better strategy to get the hell out of the way when the fertilizer starts hitting the rotating device and focus on self defense and self organization. Let the minorities spend themselves fighting the state and vice-versa. Two weakened adversaries are than facing a strong one.

      From the perspective of the middle class majority this is definitely the best strategy. In fact, I’d say it’s the best strategy for anyone and everyone. This doesn’t mean that there will be a complete lack of communication across class/racial divisions, though.

      • I acknowledge that we will probably not agree on why underclass minorities are in the state they are in. But just consider that we here advocate for ending the welfare state, and ending the police state; both to be replaced by self governance, self sufficiency, and friendly and beneficial trade in and out of such enclaves. Such enclaves will likely exists in cities where they already exist, anyway. If you fear the people in these areas, then by all means prepare for the worst (everyone should be doing that, anyway.)

        Riots are likely a foregone conclusion. And if we end up at the same place (self sufficient communities that provide their own defense and route around infrastructure breakdowns) then who cares what narrative we followed to get there?

    • Well first of all, there is a little to a real analysis of the problems of any underclass (ethnic or class based) than simply it’s all their fault vs. the government is oppressing them, one can reasonably see both things at work. If you think only deluded white pc liberals would consider the actions of the state as a factor in the current plight of blacks, I would refer you to this http://attackthesystem.com/2011/03/06/the-state-against-blacks-2/ documentary by Dr. Walter Williams who is definetely not a pc liberal. Of course, there is was probably little point in posting that link since there is about a 0% chance you will make use of it.

      Leaving that aside, I’ll leave that and get to my main point here which is that White Nationalists, just like the whites Derbyshire bemoans here (http://takimag.com/article/white_people_are_pussies_john_derbyshire#axzz26epKnmdz) are pussies. This realization was really brought home to me reading the comments on Mojo’s articles that were reposted here, I especially like “mindweapon’s” comment http://attackthesystem.com/2012/09/02/fuck-white-nationalists/#comment-15473 my fav quote, “We are living the politics of the African Savannah, and White children are being picked off by “lions” while adult water buffalo whites don’t defend them.” So he’s basically admitting that whites are the softer prey despite the fact that whites outnumber blacks significantly. I know that WN’s are not people monolithic worldview by any means and probably a lot of them don’t feel any affinity with the Nazi’s, but for those who do admire them and who make these types of comments, you ought to feel pretty wimpy. For that matter, I have a lot more respect for the Nazi’s of history (even though I don’t agree with the ideology at all) than I do for the clowns who run around as the spokesmen for the white race today.

      Likewise, all these constant yammering about black flashmobs and black criminality, what horrors, taking you away from that Leave It To Beaver ideal society you crave. While at the same time, these WN’s delude themselves as being these proud Germanic warriors, listening to Wagnerian operas, while carrying on their duty to pass on their genes of the greatest race on earth. Ironically, by buying into the fact the violence is just so horrible, you have bought into the modern pc liberal worldview at it’s most fundamental level, perhaps even more so than believing in racial equality. Hey, guess what, men fight, compete, and are aggressive and the fact that such a thing is so horrible in your eyes shows that your ideal of a male ain’t a lot of different than that of the granola munching softees that you guys claim to despise so much.

  3. Any realistic consideration of strategy has to take into account geographical issues affected by socioeconomic and demographic trends.

    As class divisions widen and the ranks of the poor and sinking middle grow, the kinds of poverty that was in the past found mostly in inner cities, native peoples’ reservations and remote rural areas is now starting to spread into the suburbs. I also posted an article here recently from USA Today showing how ethnic diversification is no longer found mostly in metropolitan areas but is finding its way into small towns and rural areas as well.

    As the same time, Americans are continuing to self-segregate along socioeconomic, cultural, religious, political, and racial/ethnic lines and that will likely be even more true in the future as ethnic diversification continues, class divisions grow further, and political polarization intensifies. Bishop’s “The Big Sort” shows how this self-separation process is transpiring on the regional, local, and neighborhood level. Hence, the ARV/ATS concept of neighborhood anarchism offers the best solution to these conflicts.

    There are working models around the world of functional revolutionary movements in societies with no ethnic majority or a long history of ethnic, cultural and religious tensions but where strategic political alliances against the overclass sectors have been achieved anyway. Lebanon and Nepal are obvious examples. It’s they whom we need to learn from.

    We need to pitch our own ideas to as many different political factions as possible. Our basic argument amounts to: “With our system, you can have a micro-nation, city-state or neighborhood that reflects the values of your own reference groups and upholds your own economic interests or you can remain under the iron heel of the establishment’s system.” The key is to persuade as many political and cultural factions as possible of the validity and desirability of our perspective, even those who hate each other. Acceptance of this concept by many different interest groups is the key to cultivating the kinds of alliances being discussed here.
