I read a book, Guerilla Warfare by Che Guevara, a long time ago then reread it and then reread it a few more times. There were some things in the book that stuck with me. Lately, I’ve been thinking about some of the things I read in that book and they seem relevant to me now. All in all I don’t much give a darn what people might make of me promoting things Guevara suggested but I’ll make this one attempt to explain myself and after that go fuck yourself if you want to make something of it.
The framers of the Constitution had a distrust of government and it’s reflected in the construction and wording of the U.S. Constitution. Unfortunately, the major flaw is that it is not capable of undoing the wrongs of those with corrupt intentions. And I’m not talking just about those who seek wealth, power, or fame. There are those whose motivation might be having the government aid the distressed with powers the Constitution has not provided. There is lots more that can be said in addition to this one example but that would just be piling on. It is my belief and I think the evidence is overwhelming that the Trump/Biden election was corrupted. The courts, which is the place to resolve these kinds of issues, were not engaged because of the misused concept of “Standing”. But that’s a whole different problem; a kind of corruption of its own,
The solution, I claim, can be found within the pages of Guevara’s book. Not how it’s to be done but what is to be done. We don’t have a democracy, we have a representative form of government. We decide important issues democratically, but we send representatives to speak for us in the continuing matters of state. And a quick look will show that the system is a leptokurtic distribution. The base is made up of all of us members of the squirming mass of nobodies who support everything and everybody. At the top is an ever expanding of pile of increasingly corrupt politicians and bureaucrats. There is little any individual can do to change things. This is where Che comes in. In his book he discusses what the squirming mass of nobodies has to do to make things right. I’m not talking about armed rebellion but, instead, using the power of dissent in a continuing and sustainable way. And it’s not in the form of complaining emails to someone in the power structure whether politician or bureaucrat. It would take a book to cover what all’s in the other book. Pointless.
It’s doubtful any of this will ever be done. Likely half the squirming mass of nobodies on the bottom are addicted to what the the politicians and bureaucrats have been spoon feeding them.

What in the hell is wrong with people? Back in the 70’s the saying among the young was to never trust anyone over thirty. My feeling now is never trust anyone under thirty, especially is they have a college education. They are mostly well educated entitled idiots. And it doesn’t seem to matter what their family background is. I don’t think we can vote our way out of the mess that been made of the U.S. Actually, it was the vote that got us into this pickle and if the state of pickledness is not clear then the pickle is deeper than it seems. I’m thinking Che might be right. It is ironic that he might have the solution to dumping Marxism/Socialism.
