Wall Street Bombing
There was a lot of interest in the photograph on Friday of the anarchist meeting in New York City. So, I thought you might also like this one. The picture was taken on September 16, 1920 on Wall Street, and shows the aftermath of a bomb which was set off by anarchists. A victim of the blast can be seen being covered on the sidewalk. Most people do not know about this incident. The blast killed 38 people, and over 400 were injured. The bomb was transported in place by a horse-drawn wagon, and was detonated by a timer.
I have never understood the anarchist movement. So, they want to bring down the government, burn, loot, and pillage. Then what? So lets say on day one they burn the grocery stores and malls. On day two, they bring down the government. Then, what is the plan for day three? Who will pay the police, teachers, and garbage collectors? If these people are not paid, who will maintain order? If there is no order, who will reopen the grocery stores? If the grocery stores do not reopen, how will the anarchist feed themselves? Am I just missing something?
