Everyone in here talks about how we need to do the revolution and why, us, communists, need to have a rifle by our side when the time comes and so on, all of this as an leftist argument in favour of gun control.
Of course, people object this statement saying that if you were to do the revolution, then your rifle will be useless regardless, as the goverment has an absurd offensive capacity: they have tanks, they have artillery, they have planes and boats, they have drones made specifically for kamikaze strikes and they have an experienced mercenary army behind them.
Obviously, the revolution will still have to happen, and this clash between the working class army and the professional army in which capitalist states get their foundations from. That counterargument holds no actual power, as any revolution, and more importantly speaking, the dissolution of capitalism and capitalist relations will have to be with violence, political power comes from the barrel of a gun, as it is said.
So, that's it. If you wanna dismantle capitalism, YOU WILL NEED TO DECLARE WAR ONTO THE CAPITALIST STATE
. There's no other way around it, you need to beat the capitalist state with the rules they bring to the table, and the rules they bring to the table are those of Total War.
Because of this, it is necessary for us to develop ways to counteract and be able not only defensive war, but offensive one as well, we need to advance, not stay at place until they get bored of bombing us.
Firstly, is to say that I'm not american, I'm spanish, so I can't have a weapon by my side unless I want to be persecuted by law, but regardless of that, let's talk about this firstly.
Inspired by the Revolutionary French Army Thread and so on >>121269 , where people started talking about how we can replicate what the Revolutionary French Army did then (not literally, but talking about replicating how they bested the other european powers through innovation in their time and so on), this, we might add, that the european powers didn't have the power level that the US has right now, or any country for that matter, meanwhile the coalition armies had to bring in resources by horse cart and move all of it's armies by foot, modern armies can travel through a country in a breeze if they force themselves hard enough on their tanks and their paratroopers. Because of this, I ask the question: What is to be done against the US (or any other) army?Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
