Matthis Chiroux: The Wisdom and Power of a Leaderless Resistance

1 Nov

With no leadership structure to dismantle, the message of the Occupy movement stands poised to self-perpetuate, impervious to traditional routes of attack. The greatest tradition in movement breaking of all time, wanton violence, could still be used against us, but as the establishment learned once again last Tuesday in Oakland, sometimes using violence to clear an intersection can fill it twice as fast.

What is to come of our struggles is a story yet unwritten. We cannot honestly say we will win. What we can say is it doesn’t matter. Simply to struggle changes to world, and we learn from the struggle and continue to fight more effectively for the change we seek.
