Anarchy | Freedom of Speech

[Anarchy | Freedom of Speech]

I saw this article yesterday, and was thinking thinking thinking [while I was at the office and should have been working working working].

Sherman Austin is being incarcerated because it has been determined that Raise The Fist violates this federal law [specifically subsection P, 2]:
Prohibition. -

It shall be unlawful for any person -

(A)
to teach or demonstrate the making or use of an explosive, a destructive device, or a weapon of mass destruction, or to distribute by any means information pertaining to, in whole or in part, the manufacture or use of an explosive, destructive device, or weapon of mass destruction, with the intent that the teaching, demonstration, or information be used for, or in furtherance of, an activity that constitutes a Federal crime of violence; or
(B)
to teach or demonstrate to any person the making or use of an explosive, a destructive device, or a weapon of mass destruction, or to distribute to any person, by any means, information pertaining to, in whole or in part, the manufacture or use of an explosive, destructive device, or weapon of mass destruction, knowing that such person intends to use the teaching, demonstration, or information for, or in furtherance of, an activity that constitutes a Federal crime of violence
I was reminded of Your Own You Own from Pigface's Notes From Thee Underground [which I spent an inordinate amount of time not finding last night].

Your Own You Own
for 23 years we've told you to beware
to be aware
before awake
your freedoms are being eroded [x2]
your needs blocked [x2]
your freedoms are being eroded
your needs blocked
your sexuality legislated
your dreams your right to dreams, stolen [stolen! stolen! stolen! stolen!]
you are being criminalized
you are being reposesed
your being digitized for ease ov location
your breath thee breath ov youth is being polluted [provication! [x4]]
your own you own
your very own
your own you own
your brains are being polluted, poisoned, and fragmented by fear
not your fear [x3]
your own you own [x10]
you only run free
as ov this day
you do not have the right to socialize
your own you own [i lost count, i'd say 30]
or criticise, or analyse, or fantasise, or politicise, or publisice
or subsidise, or visualise, or conceptualise, or realise anything!

Even though I had that encircled-A adorning my stuff in highschool, I was not then nor am I now an anarchist. However, I do believe that there are times when dissent must escalate. We are losing our rights. I am frightened and disturbed.
