|Destruction of property is not violent; smashing someone’s head with a baton is violent. We can remove ourselves from this violent situation that is the oppression of industrial, corporate government society entirely in being non-violent in self-sustaining community, in squatting. However, this is something that is illegal, that has been made so because of the money machine of corporate industry that is stealing our lives from us in the violent oppression that finds its ability in monetary value; to try to remove ourselves completely from money sees the oppression of the actuality that it is illegal to be homeless. So, pretty much, if you don’t have a job, they will find a way to make their blood money off of you in jail or prison, through their probation and parole that says if you don’t have a job, we’ll force you to, and if you can’t pay us for punishing you, we will put you back behind bars.
Stealing people’s lives from them is violent, and it is not surprising that when we feel so horribly oppressed, we lash out in different ways; most of us, however, are ethical enough not to harm others’ bodies in this process. It is obvious that the frustrations and pull toward violence is caused by that violent oppression that seems to constantly be pushing on our backs; we demand our freedom from monetary value, from corporation, from this business government, and when we see that we are more harshly oppressed for these residual feelings of entrapment we feel justified in our frustrations.
