” They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! ”
Syria, Egypt, Thailand, Venezuela …. And now with their recent gains over the Bipartisan Bourgeois, Ireland`s Sinn Fein !
SYRIZA should be next. Capitalism will stop at nothing to prevent its inevitable fail;
A break for Socialism in Latin America,or the Despotic Bourgeois on both sides of the Rio Grande ?
So Long as this is not a Turn Of The Cards towards Bourgeois Liberalism; For how many Proletarian minded Revolutions
have we gone the way of “Freedom and Democracy” ?
Better to suffer the repression, and humiliation, of an ostracized rebel, than to Just Fade Away
into The Sunset of “Archaic Anarchism” ?
I. do not trust the “Politics” of the Pacifists and the Progressives; In the name of Humanitarianism
and Globalization, they would bias The Class Struggle in the favor of The Rich and The Powerful
until the struggle for Basque Sociopolitical equity turns into another Egypt, Thailand,
or Ukrainian Republic !
The Bourgeois, The Criminals;
And The Monarchy !
The INLA, and The IRA,
Salvador, Chile, Guatemala.
Muhammad Al Bouazizi and the Arab Spring;
The Reformist Revolutionaries
are not The Terrorists
And Jesus and Pope Francis know It !
Alas, The Referendum will fall short by a close vote,
leaving the Bourgeois Aristocracy and her sycophant Working Class reactionaries at ease,
keeping the Scottish Proletariat leashed by the balls.
All Politics is a matter of International Capitalist Conspiracy and her Bipartisan Middle Class Liberal appeasements.
The Scots will have their Demonstrations, their Referendum, and their Pint of Ale; But make no mistake,
Scotland will have no Independence without a Confrontation of Force that will compel to Treaty.
And then ‘Democracy” will run the gradual course to Staus Quo;
Only the names will change to protect the Fortunate ck.
