These protesters and activists are the most supremely ignorant people in history.
They literally have the entire wealth of recorded human knowledge at their fingertips. It’s all available online and immediately accessible through the smartphones that they all have.
I can only believe that they have to be willfully ignorant because they should have at least accidentally stumbled onto some bit of knowledge by now.

Splatter is coming, Part 5
[And/or lying and/or delusional.
In any case J. KB concludes with:
There is no reasoning with them. That is abundantly clear.
As they used to say “civilize ’em with a Krag.” I have a feeling it will come to that.
I don’t think it has to come to that. I think arrests, convictions, and a few years in prison will help them reconnect with reality. Getting them out of their bubble for even a few months will be therapeutic.
H/T to less fat Dave @BigFatDave for the pointer.—Joe]
Yep. The poorest of us live a life that kings of old and even our great grandfathers could not even imagine. Go back a couple of hundred years and the winter famine was common. Even fifty years and you would find that fruits and vegetables were only fresh in season and choices at the stores were limited to basics.
So why are they attacking the very system that has given them so much? I think that they simply do not understand. They think that if they can image it they can do it, but in reality, it takes lots of hard work with detailed knowledge and skills that can only be learned by experience. They are just like other revolutionaries – they only know that they hate.
Their only solution is to tear it down what we have built and rebuild it in their image. In their ignorance, they think that they are Gods, but in reality, they are like ignorant kids throwing a temper titanium.
Exactly right. They think they are gods. With all of human knowledge at their fingertips.
Their also completely without excuse before the real god. Or anyone else for that matter.
You say, “…they think that they are Gods…”
Indeed, and where have we heard this doctrine before? Right here, of course;
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. — Isaiah 14:12-14 (KJV)
But not to worry because then comes verse 15;
Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
“Hell” meaning “the grave” by the way (death, or simply, non-existence), and NOT some ridiculous, Romish version of never-ending torture.
What we are seeing taking over the world then is Luciferianism. The Anti-Christ system. Babylon and the whore (apostate church) which rides that conglomerate beast.
So when you start to hear people saying that religion is the answer (world leaders and influencers are already saying it), be careful! They’re going to lift up that old whore (the Roman Church, i.e. false Christianity) as “the answer”. The whole world will accept it because it will give the secular left, the environmentalists, the evangelicals, Israel, Islam, and everyone else, good and wonderful reasons to support it! …and all the world wondered after the beast. — Rev 13:3
Oh come on, Lyle! Why can’t we be tortured for eternity? You quoting the KJV, Then saying Jesus didn’t know what he’s talking about?
Not to have a theology debate on an atheist web site. But it say what it say. Maybe i’m missing something? Wouldn’t be the first time. But, damn! Jesus talked more about hell than anything else. Just saying.
They will starve, or be shot for trying to steal to keep from starving.
The rosy picture right now is 50% of jobs lost won’t be coming back, leading to more permanent job losses in the secondary, tertiary and quaternary waves due to loss of purchasing.
Those that actually put supplies away and can provide for themselves better be joining up with others to defend what they have now.
For every bubble there is a corresponding crash, and this bubble in economic, caloric, and interconnectiveness is larger than has ever been witnessed in recorded history.
Reversion to the mean can not be halted by the same technology that has created the problem.
Uncle Ted, John Michael Greer and Pentti Linkola are being proven correct.
I doubt a “few years in prison” will do anything but make them more radical.
A US prison is not a gulag or re-education camp where the survival is iffy at best.
There will be plenty of time for interviews by the friendly media and to write their own version of My Fight.
Sure; they stumble into truth here and there, even being sequestered as they are in their Marxist, “Anti-Colonial” bubble, but when they see truth they’ll automatically conclude that it is a lie of some kind, designed to “oppress the disadvantaged” or some version of such. The psychological conditioning they’re receiving is extremely powerful and reinforced daily. Thus good becomes evil and evil good.
When people lash out against them for their evil deeds and evil words, they are further cemented in their beliefs; “See! Those people are suppressing me! They and their ideology are my enemy!”
It’s the old mote verses beam analogy.
Maybe that’s part of their ‘plan’. We saw in CHAZ an absurd attempt at farming by people who did not have the slightest clue about farming. Add in a dose of climate change, environmentalism, leftist philosophy, evils of petroleum and they will order the masses to the countryside to farm without hi-tech methods with the same success as others before them.
Surely that can’t happen – not in this day and age, but they are ignorant of the lessons of history.
That brings up the most interesting question, and one I hope the FBI is investigating (even though I mistrust the FBI severely): who is paying the professional rioters, and for what purpose?
Don’t “civilize ’em with a Krag.”
Pacify ’em with an AR.
We are already at war. It’s time we acknowledged that simple fact and started to act accordingly.
You cannot “civilize” them. Just as you cannot reason, debate or even coexist with them. The same is true for muslims. BOTH groups have subscribed to a belief structure that dictates that THEY are correct and NOBODY else on the planet can possibly know or believe ANYTHING of value and anyone who does not believe as they do is their mortal enemy. Attempting to civilize communists or muslims is no different from and no more possible than civilizing a dog foaming at the mouth with rabies. The ONLY reasonable and safe alternative is eradication.
