THE ILLEGITIMACY OF VIOLENCE, THE VIOLENCE OF LEGITIMACY by CrimethInc.
A CrimethInc. article with the subtitle, "a text for occupiers, freedom fighters, and the discontent," on the dynamics of legitimacy and violence in social movements. While most such writings focus on a historical or strategic need for violence and self defense, here CrimethInc. focuses on how proponents of nonviolence position themselves on questions of legitimacy, and how that works to isolate and target less-nonviolent actors.
