Go to [http://www.echoingthesound.org/phpbbx/viewtopic.php?t=20517 this thread] on ETS for discussion of this website
The URL for this website was found on a [http://www.ninwiki.com/images/9/91/Resistancepk0.jpg red flyer] at the Feb. 22, 2007 show in Paris, France. The logos shown on the site are consistent with the [http://www.nin.com/current/photos/2_21_07.jpg 2_21_07] image posted on the nin.com/current site.
There are two known links on the main page. The first links to a previously undiscovered thread on [[Another Version of the Truth (website)]]. The second links to a 'tools' page which provides downloads of the [[Resistance Logo]] in various formats.
"You think spray painting shit is going to make a fucking difference? All this art
crap might make you feel better, but the cops are laughing their asses off as they
haul you to jail. You want to make a difference, switch from .38 to .45, assholes. " - TheWarden
This may relate to biblical passages:
38: John said to him, "Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us."
45: And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life crippled than with two feet to be thrown into Gehenna.
''note: both the .38 and the .45 are gun types. the above biblical references are probably not relevant. sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.''
"b. Jan 10, 1967
d. Apr 19, 1995
Explain it to me, Warden. " - soonerlater
These dates could be a phone number, or manipulated to find the next clue.
Another way to look at the numbers is that .38 to .45 is a reference to gun calibers, and not religion. Suggesting TheWarden wants them to amp up the damage.
The dates given by soonerlater about his mothers death may link to the fact that on the 19th of April 1995 a truck bomb at a federal building in Oklahoma City exploded, killing 168 in an anti-government movement. This seems to fit in with the idea that some people on the thread are choosing to show their resistance through art and not violence due to the loss of innocent life violent events can cause.
Info on this event can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oklahoma_City_bombing
Something else worth mentioning is that CazzazaKid says "he just wanted to tell us AIR has flatlined, not start WW4", suggesting that World War 3 has already happened.
Also note that the Artist topic linked via the Art Is Resistance website contains text in the background which when compiled is the same passage from Slaughterhouse-Five found on the Wire-Tap website.
Check out the discussion page for this article for further theories and speculation.
'''Another point to ponder...'''
President Lyndon B. Johnson's State of the Union address:
Jan. 10, 1967: ...We have chosen to fight a limited war in Vietnam in an attempt to prevent a larger war--a war almost certain to follow, I believe, if the Communists succeed in overrunning and taking over South Vietnam by aggression and by force. I believe, and I am supported by some authority, that if they are not checked now the world can expect to pay a greater price to check them later.
It should also be noted that one of the screennames is 'BanksyForDictator.' [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banksy Banksy][http://www.banksy.co.uk] is a world-famous anonymous artist/social commentator known mostly for his graffiti and stencil work. His use of illegal art in a most extreme form is a testament to the role art can play in a social movement and fits hand-in-hand with the theme of www.artisresistance.com.
