Good Comrade 619-N4^,
I am in full solidarity with you. You are right to keep our eyes on the goal, and not get too caught up in the smoke and fires of the immediate causes. (Although I must admit, I do enjoy the fires, and watching this wretched society burn.) Our goal is complete and unassailable power, and we will surely overcome all obstacles. It is our right and our duty to gain power to assure the final victory of justice over the reactionary, extremist American forces. This whole country will be ours as we join forces in social solidarity with sisters and brothers all over the planet. We have many friends in high places here and elsewhere; and we are on the march. America will pass away, and the Global Society will be ushered in. Only then can we have lasting justice and peace, and equality for all humanity.
You are right when you remind me not to mistake the means for the end. Meaningless terms like “democracy” and “progress” are mere claptrap to ensnare the ignorant masses. They do not know that democracy means rule by the People; we are the People, because we have higher consciousness and know the meaning and goal of human history: all will become one in a classless society of equals. And of course we will rule totally in their benefit. These people are such fools. We are taking their guns away even as we know well what Chairman Mao taught: “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” Our guns, not theirs. We must be sure of that. Only when our Movement gains complete political and social power can there be justice and equality for all—and to get there, we will blow out any brains that get in our way. That is how it must be it assure victory for all the people—all in the world. If we want power to “transform the world,” as Obama promised we would, then we must be utterly ruthless to the Enemies of the People.
I have been communicating with some of our leaders, and we think that soon we will capture one of their Big Boys, and bring him to speedy justice—about 15 minutes or so, with cameras rolling, of course. CNN will comply, so we can scare the hell out of these smelly Walmart Americans. We’ll strip this man’s ass in public, make him get on his knees before us, and denounce the former “United States of America” as an evil capitalist system that kept the world in chains since its founding on the back of slaves. If he does not renounce the evil system, we could force his mouth open and burn out his tongue. He will be an example to all of the People’s Justice: fair, effective, and for the good of all.
In the meantime, we must keep practicing comrade’s Saul’s “Rules for Radicals.” You’ll find a handy summary of his Rules on Wikipedia. We have been applying the rules faithfully, and reaping the fruit of success. I laugh derisively at these stupid bastards, knowing that we have obeyed Alinsky’s thirteenth rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Comrade, our success has excelled at least my expectations. We picked that blond beast Trump as our target, and it worked. He is such a fat and easy target. We have successfully made him the number one Enemy of the People. He is nothing, but he’s a useful target for polarizing this wicked society, and promoting hatred among these “parties,” necessary on our way to victory. We have done a damned good job, Comrade! Through hatred alone, we will triumph, and create our world anew. Only through hatred and destruction will we gain the complete and final victory of Justice for All. And for those who do not cooperate with us, the full force of Justice will smash their ugly heads. That is the way of the Revolution, the way it must be. As Comrade Lenin said, “You can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.”
We appreciate Comrade Alinsky’s reminder to us of the first real revolutionary, the one who remains a model: “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.” We will win not a kingdom, but the entire world to the cause of Social Justice for all.
Stay true to the Cause, Comrade!
