A university is like a government in miniature. Officially democratic policies conceal an ironclad despotism, with a vast disenfranchised population at the whims of a privileged few, but also with the power to be awoken and moved to action. It is the perfect small-scale experiment.

If a large government can be toppled, a small one can be too. Tactics are easily adapted to differing scales, especially in cell-based organizations. A major–but not too major–university is compact enough that a sustained campaign by just a few cells should show results much sooner than with an established and hegemonic government. If the methods and plan we have chosen are successful–and there’s no reason to believe that they won’t be–our organization may be able to destroy or seriously disturb the university within the space of a single semester.

That will be the proof of concept. From there, it will be a simple matter to disseminate the tools and tactics we used worldwide and move up the chain. A major city, a state, a nation…once we have proven it can be done, someone will do it.
