REMOVE THE SILLY SPIRITUALITY NONSENSE AND THE POINT IS SOLID.
If you read the research on the success of the alt/hard right, it is very clear: “the key people put together text and video that explains the subject matter and this education is the reason for their success.”
In this post, the author is reiterating Mao’s message that ‘education’ is necessary for guerrilla warfare, and the western proposition that it is unnecessary and undesirable in a standing army is a reflection of our dependence upon rule of law and markets rather than authority and managed economy.
by Elders of the Black Sun 3 (some kid i don’t knw who)
“In the United States, we go to considerable trouble to keep soldiers out of politics, and even more to keep politics out of soldiers.
Guerrillas do exactly the opposite.
They go to great lengths to make sure that their men are politically educated and thoroughly aware of the issues at stake.
A trained and disciplined guerrilla is much more than a patriotic peasant, workman, or student armed with an antiquated fowling-piece and a home-made bomb.
His indoctrination begins even before he is taught to shoot accurately, and it is unceasing.
The end product is an intensely loyal and politically alert fighting man.
Guerrilla leaders spend a great deal more time in organization, instruction, agitation, and propaganda work than they do fighting, for their most important job is to win over the people.
“We must patiently explain,” says Mao Tse-tung.
“Explain”, “persuade”, “discuss”, “convince”âthese words recur with monotonous regularity in many of the early Chinese essays on guerrilla war.
Mao has aptly compared guerrillas to fish, and the people to the water in which they swim.
If the political temperature is right, the fish, however few in number, will thrive and proliferate.
It is therefore the principal concern of all guerrilla leaders to get the water to the right temperature and to keep it there.”
Brigadier General Samuel B. Griffith, USMC
“The political goal must be clearly and precisely indicated to inhabitants of guerrilla zones and their national consciousness awakened.” – Mao tse-Tung
