I agree, don't give them (The EU) a reason to raid the server room with their draconian laws.
The way that we win isn't through violence, it's by making the opposition irrelevant.
They want to read my email? They can't it's encrypted.
They want to control my computer? They can't it's minimalist free software running on Free Hardware.
They want to tell me what to think? They can't, I turn them off, I change the channel.
Finance alternative media platforms if you don't like the media. Turn off the tube and read a book, or take up a physical exercise activity, like swimming or water polo.
If you want to "rally the people", then do it around the banner of freedom. Start with Free software and Free computing hardware solutions. Go out and rally the people around Free Software and Free Computing for a start.
Reason, logic and good rhetoric is far more persuasive than violence. You can win hearts and minds with the truth and with good argumentation. Start by identifying the problem and then proposing alternative solutions, like for instance alternative media, community news letters, pamphlets, etc. Don't begin with rocks, sticks, clubs and guns. Wrong approach.
Violence is the very last resort and only after violence has been unjustly applied to you or your loved ones without cause. Also know the consequences, are you ready and willing to be surrounded by a tactical team and die for your beliefs about the media? Or is there a simpler more peaceful solution?
