Great, so let's build the groundwork for a revolution before engaging in fantasies about playing the revolutionary hero and waving around guns. This isn't necessarily aimed at you, but there's a ton of that sentiment around here.

It's better to have guns and know how to use them before it's time for the revolution. Nobody is LARPing or fetishizing violence - we recognize that war is hell, but a revolution in better than continuing to live under capitalism until it destroys the world. If your comrades are trying to start a revolution before it's time, then you're engaging with the wrong people.

An armed proletariat IS groundwork for the revolution, you cannot expect things to go smoothly without a way to defend ourselves.
