Title:Fourth Communication from the Weatherman Underground [page 2 of 2]
Date:1970
Description:

Quote from document: "Listen Nixon. We were never that naïve. We knew that flowers in your gun-barrels were risky ... We begged you to live and let live, to love and let love, but you have chosen to kill and get killed. May God have mercy on your soul. --Timothy Leary" Calls for: "1. Resist lovingly in the loyalty of underground sisterhoods and brotherhoods. 2. Resist passively, break lockstep ... drop out. 3. Resist actively, sabotage, jam the computer ... hijack planes ... trash every lethal machine in the land. 4. Resist publicly, announce life ... denounce death. 5. Resist privately, guerilla invisibility. 6. Resist beautifully, create organic art, music. 7. Resist biologically, be healthy ... erotic ... conspire with seed ... breed. 8. Resist spiritually, stay high ... praise god ... love life ... blow the mechanical mind with Holy Acid ... dose them ... dose them. 9. Resist physically, robot agents who threaten life must be disarmed, disabled, disconnected by force ... Arm yourself and shoot to live ... Life is never violent. To shoot a genocidal robot policeman in the defense of life is a sacred act."
