5-Step Rebellion: Toasting La Policia

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!

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
