Signs your field may be political agitation disguised as an academic pursuit:
1) It has the word “Studies” in its name.
“Industrial sabotage… certainly does (have its place).”
“I can’t honestly say I haven’t been in a position where I haven’t wanted to inflict harm on somebody…”
“Violence is a tactic…”
“I believe in the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie and that freedom is found at the barrel of a gun…”
“I don’t necessarily want to be part of a capitalistic society, I want to take over the state with a revolutionary movement.”
“Is there any sort of rough guess on what percentage of the population has to be involved for something to considered a revolution instead of terrorism?”
