    Isn't that called Anarchy??
    Actually Noam Chomsky's definition of anarchist is "someone that questions the reason for authority to have power" and I am certainly that. A anarchist works towards no government, widleing away at its power as the powers become obsolete until their is no more government.

    No I don't believe anarchy (or communism, which is actually a form of anarchy because their is no government by marxes definition) is possible in my lifetime. You have to get rid of things like bigotry and greed first.

    I think the police need to be held accountable for their actions and current corruption, and that the vast majority people who are cops do not deserve to be. I also think the fop needs to pay reparations, along with all pigs, and that large numbers of them need to have their assets seized and to be jailed.

    A world without pigs would be preferable to a world with insanely corrupt pigs, but I do see the sense in a REAL police force. Ya know, one that trys to help people.

    So reality is a extremist view now? That's a very odd notion...

    Chumpksy can define a duck as a radiator, doesn't make it right. anarchy is simply the absence of government which would lead to the Good Reverend becoming your warlord.

    LMAO communism is anarchy, chocolate is vanilla, war is peace.

    Almost agreed with you right up till your first comma then you went all extremist again.

    how does an anarchist, sieze someone elses assets?

    So after reading this thread it seemed some were cheering for a riot so they can get their daily fill of riot porn, yet there are no riots in NYC. What happened?

    The point was their are not many looters. Not none, but its understandable that some will try to capitalize on the situation in order to steal.
    So if you admit there are looters, and you can't deny that the vast majority are black, I don't see why you would have a problem with the cartoon. The cartoon itself is shows looters are in the minority after all.

    The NYPD wasn't going to tolerate it for one. Two, being away from the epicenter, there's less emotion involved I would suspect. And Three, everyone knows the eyes are on them, so their very careful to stay on the straight and narrow.

    One of the things, NYPD made themselves visible without looking like and occupational riot police force itching for a fight, and let the marches march.

    But like Reverend said, they made themselves highly visible throughout the process. And there were some arrest that were made. Though I suspect the protesters themselves were more than happy to weed out the bad ones to the cops, unlike in Ferguson.

    Capitalism teaches nothing. Capitalism rewards those who create wealth, whether by their own labor, directing the labor of others or via the use of already created wealth. How any of that is related to racism is beyond me.

    Many black-on-black shootings occurred yesterday, and none of these protesters give a **** about that.
