The game plan
The Animal Rights movement is part of the political Left. The struggle for animal protection and animal rights is no different than the historical struggles to secure the rights and freedoms for minorities and the oppressed. The fight against speciesism is a continuation of the fight against racism, bigotry, hatred, and oppression of the weak.
The Armory of the Revolution is designed to be a source of philosophical and historical information for animal activists, and a resource for political and organizational strategies to broaden and grow the movement and expand its influence.
I’m an animal rights activist, an environmentalist, and a civil libertarian, all of which puts me on the political Left. Now on my fifth career (I was a stockbroker, investment banker, lawyer and Democratic strategist), I run progressive social issue campaigns.
As a Democratic political strategist, I ran presidential campaigns in California and the West for 2 sitting presidents and 3 presidential aspirants. I also directed California’s Proposition 13 campaign for Howard Jarvis.
I am brazenly anti-military. I was thrown out of the Cub Scouts for refusing to wear matching pants. I’ve never been good at following orders or obeying superiors. I’m a child of the 60s.
Curiously, however, I couch most of my activism in military concepts.
I don’t think in terms of an army, I think in terms of a guerilla.
A band of guerillas, actually.
Guerilla warfare is what we do.
Not with guns or weapons, but with ideas, organization, sound bites, demos, and ALF raids.
The weapon I am most proficient with is the written word.
I have an armory full of that particular weapon which I will be posting here.
Heavy artillery, grenades, tanks, bazookas! Ready for combat.
You just need to go there and pick up your supplies.
They don’t do any good just sitting in inventory.
They need to be read and shared!
