Middle class goons organise to rob tourists

http://www.crimethinc.net/node/2130

I know it's completely irrelevent and I probably shouldn't link to other boards but this is absolutely fucking unreal.

"this is scam sounds great. and I doubt very much that even the honest hardworking proletariat vacationer is going to be very much set aback at the loss of $20 or $40."

i assume its a self-parody, going by the comments beneath and the fact i've been called 'capitalist' by crimethincers for having a job.

One may want to put in an extra little note into the tourist bag, something along the lines of how vacationing and tourism are simply capitalist snares, providing the illusion of having the opportunity to 'get away from it all', while at the same time the vacationer spends five times more than they normally would, thereby only reinforcing the need for a job in the first place, blah blah...;)

I'm sure no one will open the bag and actually look inside it roll eyes

I've been a one man intervention on that board now for ages arguing against all kinds of terrible ideas, mostly because I wish someone had done it when I was into that shit.

i posted a bit on a different crimethinc board recently, there was a post with a load of primmo cartoons with people trashing their offices and turning them into primmo, hunter-gatherer TAZs, as well as the garden of fucking eden. and people saying 'we should totally email these to office workers', so i said i'm an office worker, i'd quite like my kids to see thirty after the revolution and i'm quite partial to a bit of technology ...

The communist moon drips with the red blood of dead anarchists.

It has colored half of the black star red.

If you want to work in a fuckin' office you are not even a syndicalist.

No other ideology has kiled off more anarchists than communism.

After pointing out anarcho-communists have an excellent record of not killing themselves, most ended up admitting theres nothing inherently more revolutionary about dropping out than working, but that dropping out created more time for revolutionary activity. Now i know what they meant ...

Saying it's ok to rob 20-40 dollars from someone who is proletarian is fucking disgusting, if i caught you doing it you'd receive a dose of post-left violence to the fucking head.

This thread makes me very happy, in crimethinc we have a common enemy who makes our own minute differences seem so irrelevant.

Nah sorry, I still hate you.

out of interest, is a 'Fight' different to a 'fight'? it certainly sounds more spectacular.

fucking hell what is all this puritan shite:

you've got no beef with someone spending obscene amounts of cash (600eu, eh?) on themselves, to go on a fucking vacation?

i can only assume that someone who thinks spending money on yourself is counter-revolutionary has never had to spend any money on themselves. why don't they just become buddhists and fuck off up a mountain and stop detourning anarchism into a bourgoise guilt-hobby angry

Sounds like you should start a new thread there about how that's censorship and like anarchists don't tell other people what to do and how they're a bit like Hitler?

I reckon Rugger can look after himself, he's not such a frequent poster these days. Maybe GDID could punch someone at the bookfair on RR's behalf, that would make him happy.

even more so because they presume to speak for someone they've probably found on google as a charicature of the third world oppressed.

people i've spoken to in the 'third world' (quechua guys in the andes) have a much more interesting take on being 'westerners', namely they've tended to want jobs and the decent standard of living they can potentially provide, while wanting to avoid ecocidal corporate projects like mines in their communities. A guy i met in Peru told me how he found it strange that westerners complained about boring jobs while all he wanted was a steady job - he effectively wanted to be proletarianised. And he was basically a libertarian communist - he wanted to see a demoratic communism and was critical of the state and the maoist terror/guerrilla groups, while not dismissing the right to armed struggle. cool guy 8)

People talking about how much they hate people who feel guilty, really gets on my nerves angry

Its no different to religous nuts telling people they shouldn't hate people.

Its just another form of moralising angry

Stop it wall

I mean to say, trying to shame people for feeling guilty, is, erm, really wierd.

Its too difuse for it to be what makes them crimethinkers.

Maybe guilt is an important part of, the ethical relationship.

I've made my views quite clear on this tongue
