It is an interesting question: what would it take to get you to fight?
My answer is that we have a long campaign of moral persuasion ahead of us and that violence done in the name of our communities without legitimacy in the eyes of the people of our communities is counterproductive and plays into the hands of the enemy.
The Black Undertow is responsible for most of the violence in the American South. These criminals are engaged in violence against White people on an everyday basis. This Visible Hand has made our great cities uninhabitable for taxpaying, civilized, law abiding White people. The Left is also presently engaged in a campaign of violence in the name of anarchy and social revolution in the Occupy Wall Street protests.
I think that we need to claim the moral authority of non-violence. We need to turn MLK’s narrative world upside down and practice non-violent witness of the reality of the situation on our opposition. The tools of social media (such as WordPress, Facebook, YouTube) can be used to create a discourse and an adversary culture that challenges the legitimacy of the racial, cultural, and political status quo.
What would it take to get you to fight? The answer is nothing more than a moral consensus and legitimacy in the eyes of our own communities. Before we can fight and win though, we have to start changing minds.
