I don’t believe that our current economic system actually works. Capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system something has to be exploited. That’s land, labor or resources. And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we’ve got to move into something new. And I believe in community ownership of land, labor and resources and distribution of those resources. And so whatever that morphs into I think will serve community the best. And I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary.

By any means necessary? What does that mean?
If it means what I suspect it means the only proper response, after all peaceful avenues are exhausted, is that given by General Francisco Franco to Niceto Alcalá-Zamora y Torres, President of the Second Spanish Republic:
One thing that I am sure of, and which I can answer truthfully, is that whatever the contingencies that may arise here, wherever I am there will be no communism.
God help America. The Left is hurtling us toward a precipice.
