5-Step Rebellion: Toasting La Policia

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.


Now that no one can alert the police to your antics, and the police themselves are isolated in their station, you can attack them a little more directly.

The Molotov Cocktail is your final lesson in rebellion. At this stage the free-form vagueness of the earlier lessons is gone, and precision measurements are required. The rag you insert into the bottle, for instance, can extend “no more than 20cm from the rim.”

Following these instructions to the letter is essential to insure the downfall of the evil regime. The “FFM” also offers a variation on this tactic in which you perforate drums of gasoline and throw the “coctel” at them, for a more pronounced, albeit more dangerous, effect.

 

Such are the demands of liberation, no?

Addendum:
The MoJo Wire does not condone the use of these tactics against any government, tyrannical or otherwise.

Retreat? | Advance!

THE BIG PICTURE

You expect the big picture, and it's our job at Mother Jones to give it to you. And right now, so many of the troubles we face are the making not of a virus, but of the quest for profit, political or economic (and not just from the man in the White House who could have offered leadership and comfort but instead gave us bleach).

In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," we unpack what the coronavirus crisis has meant for journalism, including Mother Jones’, and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support our nonprofit journalism with a donation: We've scoured our budget and made the cuts we can without impairing our mission, and we hope to raise $400,000 from our community of online readers to help keep our big reporting projects going because this extraordinary pandemic-plus-election year is no time to pull back.
