"we carry death out of the village"

The Solution

After the uprising of the 17th June
The Secretary of the Writers Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

–Bertolt Brecht, The Solution

Some fucking youth clubs

Forgive my scornful laughter when told that what caused the mob to raze our cities to the ground was nothing more than–deep breath–wait for it, wait for it–the closure of some fucking youth clubs in Haringey!

On the other hand, at least know how to create an instantly hostile insurgent force, should Adolf Hitler ever invade.
