With the passing of S.1867 - National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 the United States Senate has declared its overwhelming belief that all citizens of the United States are suspected terrorists and that constitutional rights don’t apply anymore.
Before everyone cries out in fear, this has not passed the house yet (which it must do), and the president hasn’t signed it yet (so he can veto it). It does not change the fact that the Senate of the United States stands directly against freedom. People who live outside of the United States have long known that freedom from the United States was a sham, the United States has no respect for freedom or human life otherwise they wouldn’t be a afraid of wikileaks.
I am a domestic terrorist and promote peaceful, non-violent, resistance to an abusive government. I don’t believe that property damage is violent and I believe that demonstrating your anger through the use of damage is an acceptable form of protest. I believe the in the words written within the declaration of independence that says:
We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness—-That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
ALL men are created equal, and ALL have basic human rights including, but not limited to; Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That those people who shall be ruled must only be ruled by those who THEY recognize as authority and when a government stands against its citizens then it would be not only acceptable, but an obligation to dissolve those chains of oppression and start anew, regardless of the difficulty… to ensure that a new government can protect the citizens and provide safety and happiness.
I am an EcoTerrorist, because I understand the basics of the environment and know when you eliminate one part of the chain, every organism is affected. Whales are sentient creatures and I believe that they should be protected, and while a whales life is no more important than a humans life, it is an acceptable risk to protect a creature which can think and feel but not protect itself. I believe the Japanese’ actions in Taiji are horrible and should be stopped immediately by whatever actions nessesary. The United States raping the land of the natives just to seek out more resources, instead of promoting a way of life that does not need those resources should be viewed as a crime against humanity.
I am a treasonist and believe that people should question government, I believe that to make a fair vote for a leader I should have full knowledge of what that leader has done. I respect whistleblowers, and feel that they should be the ones who get to live in the ivory tower, not those who torture and lie. Information should be free, and the world is waking up to that… but the United States and governments around the world stand by the notion that spreading truth should be against the law. I am also a treasonist because I don’t find my government perfect, here in Canada we live under a dictatorship. There is no democracy in a system where one man can tell over half of parliament what to vote, and then they vote for it.
I am an education terrorist and I give away knoweldge for free that a corrupted copyright system tries to hold, monopolize over, and keep for power and money. I am in the business of tearing down those established systems for a new system which allows all humans to have access to all knowledge of the world. Education shouldn’t be something that is profited from, and our books and culture shouldn’t be deprived from other people because they live in other countries. Knowledge wants to be free, and I will free it.
Finally, because I suggest that we should live in peace and because the United States and many other nations around the world profit on war… I am a terrorist of love… and I will declare my love jihad on every government in the world. I am Travis McCrea, I am a terrorist, but more importantly I am a pirate.
