Let’s imagine an email written from one of the contemporary Gnostic revolutionaries who insists on convulsing our society. He writes it to one of his hidden comrades, and proposes further action.
Dear Comrade in arms 619-N4^,
We are winning the struggle at last. This damned American regime is shaking in its boots. We have them by the throat, and they know it. We have them by every one of their sorry parts! As long as we keep using plenty of violence, they will cave in to our demands—little gutless wonders that they are. And we must not be timid in those demands, for now is our golden opportunity to transform the world by radically changing this evil empire which the pigs call “the United States of America.” This is our moment, this is our time. It is right now. We will do this at last!
We have to burn to the ground a sizable part of at least one of the enemy’s major cities. Maybe Nashville, or Dallas, or St. Louis. We will leave as little standing as possible, as a sign of hope that all of this evil old world must be destroyed before the New Age will rise from the ashes. We must kill many along the way, because these pigs must shed their blood to pay for what they did to black slaves with the lash. We will whip some of them in broad daylight, just the way they whipped slaves on their plantations. They will bleed naked in their streets. And children will not be spared If we do not tear apart some of their children from limb to limb in full public view—with CNN’s camera rolling, of course—then how do we have the courage for the great task before us: destroying this wicked country so the Socialist State can be born. We WILL overcome, and we WILL bring Social Justice to all!
We will overcome—I know that. I was not so sure until the past few weeks. These men are gutless. Even if we get caught and arrested, these ugly fools play “catch and release,” just as if they were going fishing with our tails. They release us, and we grow ever stronger, because victory is on our side We must not slacken our efforts. We must destroy a major city, and let their evil blood flow in the streets as proof of the justice of our cause. They must pay for all the many evil things they have have done for many years. No one will be spared unless we consider them useful for the Revolution Otherwise, any resistance to us, and they get liquidated.
Meanwhile, we will press our demands: That reparations be paid of at least $1 million dollars for every descendant of slaves. They must pay, and pay they will. If they do not pay, we destroy their Capitol. And it will no longer be called Washington, D.C., because that bastard Washington owned slaves. And Jefferson, and other white male supremacist presidents. All of these names must be expunged from every state, country, town. Washington DC will be named Social Justice, or Equality for all. No more Columbus, Ohio, or Jefferson City, Missouri. These bastards enslaved our fellow human beings. No more Monticello—burn it down. And Washington’s Mount Vernon. It is a shrine to slavery, and must be leveled. We will destroy his tomb on the property, and throw his wretched bones into the Potomac. Then they will begin to realize that we are the future coming NOW, and that ours is the true cause of social justice for all! The transformation comrades have promised is being realized by our bloody hands. Remember that!
But this is not enough. Every museum that displays art work by white Europeans must be destroyed. You lead our brigade into the Smithsonian, and take it over. Liberate it—all of it, piece by piece for world peace! The Smithsonian will be liberated, and the spoils divided up among our fellow brothers and sisters who have worked hard for our Revolution for Justice. When you get to the gem collection in the Smithsonian, save me the Hope Diamond. It is a sign of our hope for peace, justice, and a New Age of Humanity all over the world. Comrade, we will overcome, and soon—soon and very soon, brother.
And they know it. Their sorry asses know that truth and justice are on our side, and they will “fold like a cheap suit,” for that is just what they are. Little worms, and we will squash them. When we gain control of New Equality or whatever we name their stinking “Washington,” the whole political system will collapse. We will share rule for the sake of all the people. And anyone who objects will be cut down like a slab of bacon for all to see. We must kill their leaders to show that there is no going back, no return to their f’ing “United States of America.” No, the new world will not have that hated name. It is gone, with their stupid “American flag.” They will all be burned for everyone to see. No churches will be left standing unless they will be used as apartments for the poor and needy. In this stage of our Revolution, each one is free to take whatever he finds in stores or in any white guy’s house—because all that they have, they got on the back of people of color and slaves. They will pay for every drop of blood a slave or proletarian worker ever shed. They will pay unto death.
That is enough for now. Keep the fires burning, comrade. We must not let the Revolution calm down. Do whatever it takes to shoot fear into their hearts, and power in our hands, strength in our arms. We will WIN! The New Age is breaking in!
Your comrade to death,
