The Progressive Revolution Begins…

February 17, 2011

for the world’s despots, his ideas can be fatal.
Few Americans have heard of Mr. Sharp. But for decades, his practical writings on nonviolent revolution — most notably “ From Dictatorship to Democracy,” a 93-page guide to toppling autocrats, available for download in 24 languages — have inspired dissidents around the world, including in Burma, Bosnia, Estonia and Zimbabwe, and now Tunisia and Egypt.

…and why not the US.

Is Wisconsin Our Egypt? 15,000 Protest Off-the-Wall Right-Wing Governor’s Policies‘I’ve never seen anything like it… there were Steelworkers, Teamsters, Pipefitters, building trades unions and more — unions I’ve never seen at a rally in 10 years.’

‘Anonymous’ Hacker Group Teaches Shady Cyber-Security Companies a Lesson They’ll Never ForgetAn apparent coalition of hackers is hitting targets with surprising speed and accuracy — and it looks like it’s just the beginning.

Shortly after the overreaching CEO of Sacramento’s so-called cybersecurity outfit, HBGary Federal, assembled an online attack plan against pro-Wikileaks supporters like Salon journalist Glenn Greenwald and prematurely bragged about “pwning” the upstart hacker collective Anonymous privately to his employees and publicly to the Financial Times, Anonymous quickly retaliated by raiding his drives, releasing 40,000 HBGary Federal emails, remotely wiping his iPad and engendering a scathing public disconnection from those who have known and employed him. Evidently, if you fuck with the Internet bull, you still get the real-time horns.

Meanwhile the regressive echo chamber is in full throat about those nasty workers demanding that promises of pensions and benefits be kept.

Next targets? The Kochs and all thier companies…
