Forms of Resistance

[Ed. note: as usual, another good dialogue from Karena's Blog.]

I think we're all in agreement about the extent and dangers of the Bush dictatorship. Which leaves us only one question: Fight or submit?

We know the answer, oppose. What are the best methods? We have tried that through our votes, which are rigged and stolen. We have tried that by preaching to the choir and going door to door to increase the voter turn out of the so-called opposition voters. That has not worked. How do we get heard? That is the question. Do we show up in protest droves? That has not worked. Do we try to convince the so-called opposition party to impeach? That has not worked. What are we to do?

You're right: protest is not resistance; it's what's often tried in advance of fighting or submitting in hope that the dire choice isn't necessary. Unfortunately, it always is.

Once you're over the hump on that one, the choices of forms of resistance to tyranny are really quite limited:
civil disobedience
armed insurrection
