Hey, Dave, let's add in the corporate fuckers of BP who skimped on safety and brought us the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill of 2010, which will eclipse the Exxon-Valdez as the worst oil spill in U.S. history, and has the potential, however slight, of killing the Earth's oceans . Crimes against Njord?
I'm sorry, but as a skald, I have a religious duty to praise the deeds of heroes who fight to defend Mother Earth, as beloved Thor himself does. It doesn't matter how your empire or its various media label these people. It doesn't matter if an enslaved and cowed population has been frightened into bogeymanning them. Real people look at actual deeds, not accusations, labels, or slander. They examine the quality of actions and the values behind them. They admire real courage in the service of something transcendant and meaningful. They do not step in line with propaganda machines and simply mimic whatever we are told we are "supposed" to believe, nor do they cower in regiment simply because some kind of smear words created to arouse fear in listeners is applied to someone.
Let's get real. The overwhelming majority of those who are smeared as "ecoterrorists" are not "terrorists" at all in any definition of the term, and are at best ecovandalists. Ask anyone in New York City who had to go through the awful trauma of 9-11 whether they consider "vandalism" and "terrorism" the same thing. There is no comparison, and the authoritarian imperialists peddling such words know this. They're just depending on you to be stupid enough to not notice the difference. Don't be stupid. Your freedom depends on it.
And just in case you were wondering ... the word "vandalism" comes from the name of a Germanic tribe, the Vandals, who wreaked havoc on the Roman Empire as they came through with a spirit of retribution against an Empire which had repeatedly violated their groves, their laws, their children, and treated them as less-than-human. Do the math.
