Bad actions for good causes?

How often do bad actions promote good results?

How often is war the best path to peace?

Do means affect ends?
.................
[ Opinion by Tortuga Bi LIBERTY:]

As a long-time
left-wing activist,
since age 17 or so**,
sometimes I'm
embarrassed by my comrades
[ as, no doubt, they may be
embarrassed by me].

Like when they practice censorship
[ .....].


Or when they use fascist tactics
[* like attacking tech workers ].
.........

If my comrades truly seek more
economic equality for the 99%,
in the spirit of Occupy Wall Street,
then they have many options --

they could even support
a California ballot initiative
to raise our minimum wage,
state-wide.

"Arise,
all prisoners of dogma--
you have nothing to lose,
except your blindfolds..."

Remember Kronstadt!
