IF actual physical violence breaks out in major cities, in America - here is something to be aware of.  There are far MORE of US, than there are of cops.  It's the SOLDIERS you need to be prepared for.  Of course,  depending upon where you live, even cops have become more militarized, some even having received training in Zionist Israel.  Here is what the 1% (Rothschilds, Rockefellers, etc.), and their lackeys (the 545 in the District of Corruption) actually think about cops and military men:  They call them their "dogs".

"Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy" - Henry Kissinger (comment made to Alexander Haig)

He could just as easily have said, that cops are "dumb, stupid animals" "to be used as pawns in DOMESTIC policy"

I'm not going to waste 44 minutes watching this video. But if the theme is as the heading suggests, "Our Only Hope Will Come Through Rebellion," then it is entirely backwards. Here's why.

When you, as a person, consider what you need to live life, you come up with a big list. The list includes air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat, shelter from the elements, other people (at least one) for companionship and relationships, enjoyment, something to work at to feel that you have worth, and a lot of other things that are not as basic. As you live, you develop more needs and wants for yourself, especially if you have children whom you love.

If you happen to meet another entity, and you see that entity standing, say, 30 feet away, you can tell that it is another person. There are ways that you instinctively know that it is another person. You can tell the difference between a person and an animal. And being another person, you realize that it has wants and needs and desires of the same kind (at least the basic ones) as you have. You also realize that when it sees you, it KNOWS that you have those same basic needs and wants that IT has.

This is instinctive knowledge. It is knowledge that all adult people have. People who lack this knowledge are deranged, crazy, mad, and on their way to natural death, possibly suicide.

There is another kind of person. There is also the kind of person who would criminally deny those natural, basic needs to other people. Often this kind of person is of a mind to CRIMINALLY STEAL the basic needs from other people, right in the face of knowing that EVERYBODY has these needs. What is this kind of person called? He's called a REBEL.

If you, as a peaceful, peace loving person, one who wouldn't hurt anyone, one who would help others in need, one who would even give of your own substance to the needy... if you are being harmed or damaged by one of the REBELS for no reason, then YOU AREN'T A REBEL when you fight back.

Stop all this "We gotta rebel" talk. It isn't us who are rebelling when we fight against oppression. What we are doing is putting down a rebellion started by a bunch of criminals. And as long as we talk about forming a rebellion without clearly stating that it is a rebellion against some criminal rebellion against natural living, then WE JUST MIGHT BE BECOMING THE CRIMINAL REBELS.

Fight? Yes, when necessary! But fight for justice, for true honor, for love, for our families. Not because we are forming a rebellion. THEY already did that when THEY started to steal from us that which is naturally ours. Their rebellion is against nature. Their rebellion is against themselves. Their rebellion is against us. Let's put down the rebellion.

Non-violent, non-compliance, across the board, is the answer.

Let’s Stop Fooling Ourselves: Americans Can’t Afford the Future

Be sure to read the COMMENTS section, following both articles (above), as many commenters have left additional SOLUTIONS, that anyone may employ, in this WAR OF ATTRITION, being waged on humanity, by the U.S. Government, and governments around the world, on behalf of themselves (via kickbacks), and the 1% (who provide the kickbacks).  The 545 in the District of Corruption need to be replaced.  It's not our Constitutional System or the Bill of Rights that is the problem.  No, it's the 545 current occupants of Con-gress, that are the problem.  They need to go.  ALL of them.
