The Next Stage of the Current Highway Brigandry

Given this weekend's news out of Austin and Aurora combined with previous news from Provost, I believe that people are going to become less inclined to stop for protestors blocking the highway with their bodies. For the same real reason that hijacking airliners has become harder. People are now perceiving this action as a real and immediate threat of death or injury.

So what's the next likely socialist escalation of this tactic. Short term is probably either improvised caltrops/spike-strips or vehicle barricades.

In the first situation remember that even popped or blow tires aren't completely useless and sacrificing your wheel rims is better than an angry mob. Keep putting as much distance between them and you as you safely can. Also if you're getting new tires soon self sealing or run-flat ones might have a new point on the pro side of the decision sheet.

As for vehicle barricades. Straight Forward in a Crooked World (excellent blog that I wish would come back to us with active posting), has an article on the techniques of breaching a vehicle road block if you must I highly advise reading the whole thing:

Faced with breaching a road block made from stationary vehicles a car makes a very serviceable battering ram. But like everything, there is a right way and a wrong way. Do it the right way and you not only surprise everyone, but you may also disable a few of the bad guys cars along the way. It just won't won't be in show room condition afterwards.
Stay safe and avoid trouble where possible, but thinking about the unthinkable beforehand is the first step to surviving it.

Lost Meaning

Sadly this degradation gives cover to people who fit the classic definition of the word. Either because so many people are called racists real ones are lost in the noise, or because they're socialists and are therefore exempt under the new definition.
