Fourth Generation Warfare Erupts in the Northwest 4

These incidents (see here and here) fit the 4GW model fairly well. It’s also worth noting nearly all of the major incidents of violent rebellion in the U.S. in recent decades have been triggered as a result of perceived injustices perpetrated by law enforcement, e.g. L.A. riots 1992, Oklahoma City bombing 1995, Cincinatti 1999, Miami 1979, Detroit 1967, etc.

  1. do you see this as the physical beggining of the new movement you’re attempting to concieve keith? also i was wondering just how many members does the ARV currently possess, and what are your activist proclivities in and around Richmond?

  2. Well, I don’t really recommend that people go out and get into suicidal confrontations with the police, if that’s what you’re asking. I’m interested in producing leaders for a whole new revolutionary movement years or decades down the line. The big picture and the long-term are what matters.

    I do think this kind of thing will escalate with time, however, as the System’s legitimacy continues to implode and more and more people start getting pissed off about something or other. For instance, things like public shootings (schools, post offices, malls) used to be big events when they started happening about 20 years ago. Now it’s like, “Oh, another school shooting?” I suspect anti-System violence will escalate in a similar manner. I really don’t want anyone from my audience to do stuff like that. I want to build an elite corps of revolutionaries who will lead a future anarchist-libertarian-populist-nationalist revolution, not folks who make themselves into symbolic martyrs.

    ARV is not a formal membership organization, so I really don’t know how many supporters/sympathizers we have at present. It seems to be growing fairly rapidly.

    I’m not that active in Richmond area nowadays, though I used to be. Now, I tend to focus more on the bigger questions.

  3. Ean,

    On an almost daily basis, I come across routine reports of people being murdered, tortured, raped, assaulted, robbed, all sorts of other things, at the hands of the police. I’ve always figured that it was only a matter of time before this kind of thing started to happen.

    I mean, if a PIG kills or hurts someone in your family, like your kid or niece or nephew, people tend to take that pretty personally. If the System won’t do anything about it (which is usually the case), people will eventually retaliate on their own.

    Another thing I’ve noticed is that police violence and brutality is starting to spill over into the middle class. Racial profiling only became a big deal when it started to affect the black middle class. When police brutality starts becoming common among the white middle class, things are going to happen.
