Up in arms over revolutionary letter

Dear Editor,

On July 7, the Post Independent printed a highly questionable proposition by David Krest, who apparently resides in what could be called “Western Slope Outpost of Boulder.”

He and his guru, David Barsamian, are advocating an obligation by we the people “to abolish, overthrow and institute new government.” He states that “No government is the way to go to bring peace. …” Everybody doing their own thing, David?

David further writes he agrees with his guru that “the revolution is now.” David, revolution to overthrow the current government? Small arms or big guns?

David says “we the people” a lot, and that is exactly the populace that needs to keep an eye on such as David Krest, his guru and associates assisted by federal, county and city resources. They speak of peace, but revolution is war.

Thanks for listening,

Jack E. Blankenship
