Katie Sierra - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
.... wow. i'm against anarchy myself, but for an entire school to gang up on a girl like that ? i didn't think that was possible in a democratic environment.
In America? What is this democracy you speak of?
" Sierra is an anarchist-pacifist who is opposed to all violence and advocates "a peaceful revolution." "
Tells you something about post 9/11 america huh
Trust me republicans can be scary bastards when confronted with rationalism and/or logic and you know that all evil sacreligious thing called 'questions'
(I'm actually talking about a cousin of mine in particular so no I'm not generalising I know they are not All like this. Just the reactionary attitude of Americans scares the fuck outta me)
sorry, democrasy wasn't the word(s) i was looking for, just the one i happened to think of at the time. i meant to say i didn't expect a lynching of a perfectly rational, peaceful person in a "modern, 1st world, educated" country.
i knew that there are some really patriotic people in america and some people that won't listen to facts, but an entire *school* ? including the principal ? i must admit i was slightly taken aback when i read about it.
What a fucking moron.
She sounds like a pretentious fuck who fully deserved everything that happened to her.
I bet she wrote about this on her livejournal. From the afterlife, even. Fucking tool.
She went to the principal on Oct. 23 2001 wanting to start an anarchy club. Her knowledge of American history and sense of timing was poor.
In the wake of any attack against the US there will be a period of shock, anger, and an automatic public response by most to support the government and whatever action they take to deal with a common enemy. Any opposition from within will likely be labeled as a anti-American and be considered as taking a position favorable to the enemy against your own people. Once US forces are deployed to fight this becomes even more the case as vocal opposition to the war will then be viewed an attempt to demoralize combat forces in the field.
And she wanted to start an Anarchy Club in this kind social and political climate? Sorry, it was a foreseeable consequence that even if she won the right in court to start such a club, it would amount to a pyrrhic victory at best because this doesn't guarantee that the other students, teachers, or parents would quietly agree with it. All she probably accomplished was to increase an awareness of what she had done and was doing, and increase the level of harassment directed against her.
All in all, this a prime example of "Good intentions, good ideas, bad procedure, bad follow up, and just far too much extremism at the beginning." She would have been far less ridiculed for wanting to save the environment but started by requesting to form a club on Eco-Socialism. Hell, that wouldn't have been nearly as bad as advocating pure anarchy.
Wow...if I were in her class, I'd slap her too. What a fucking moron.
