1- The destruction of the heart of their power center
Me: No.
2-  A savage USA civil war
Me: Also Not. With all due respect, violence is not an option, a) because violence is a resort of those incapable of winning  the intellectual argument but worse b) practical considerations; our '#1 enemy' has more firepower and is itching to deploy it to kill as many of us as they want to. Then, silence/inaction is not an option, since silence is acquiescence. Q: What to do? A: Defeat them on the level playing field of ideas, where we hold the natural advantage, criminals being not so clever. rgds

We are living in a moment that is ripe for a new level of honesty in politics. Ripe for young aspiring political leaders to incubate a new DC Ethics Manifesto that treats constituents with respect and intelligence; a manifesto that offers voters realism and solution, not deception and ruin. We are living in a moment that begs for new behaviorism from politicians: conduct that favors truth over lobbyists. This, we should absolutely and firmly demand from our politicians.
Me: IMHO, not going to happen. Politicians are ineluctably corruptible, and the [filthy 5th-column] coercion-operators are firmly in place. Yes, "fake news" has been well and truly flushed, activists must simply keep 'catapulting' - the truth. rgds
