“The Coming Insurrection,” Joe Stack and Anarchy


Sadly, though I spent my entire life trying to believe it wasn’t so, but violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer. – Joe Stack

When Glenn Beck  brought up the book “The Coming Insurrection” on one of last week’s shows once again, expressing his grave concern about its’ content, I never expected such a dramatic example of its’ ideology to appear so soon.

Curious, as I knew he had mentioned it before, I downloaded the pdf last week and read it for myself. After hearing the tragic news about Joe Stack flying a plane into the IRS building in Austin today, I immediately thought of the random, violent and senseless acts suggested in “The Coming Insurrection.” It is full of despair and hatred for capitalism, and Joe Stack is a sad example of the result of this line of thinking. 

Joe concludes his “manifesto” with the following thought:

And justice? You’ve got to be kidding!

…The communist creed: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed

Joe Stack (1956-2010)

I am not saying that Joe had ever read “The Coming Insurrection”, but that he reflects the same communistic outlook and hopelessness reflected in it. He is hardly the only one to be affected by this type of thinking. It appears this could be a worldwide movement to inflame and instigate confrontation and anarchy all over the globe. It fits right in with the type of unrest in Greece, France and other countries in the last five years. But “The Coming Insurrection” leaves the reader with no solutions after they destroy everything around them.

“The Coming Insurrection” and its’ ideology is the perfect vehicle to set up the type of “crisis” situation that Marxists and Muslim extremists could take advantage of, by filling that void in the aftermath with a Marxist system or Sharia Law, perhaps one country at a time. Even if there is not a plan on this scale, we must be alert to those who seek to use these difficult times to complete their end game, and we must do all we can to alleviate the causes and skewed thinking that would draw people to this philosophy. The stakes are too high, as Joe Stack displayed today.
