I have had quite a lurking hiatus here on ATS, so consider this my return to the forefront. The longer that life goes on, the more I feel like The
Joker in a way. This is simply because I feed on chaos. Unlike that character, I don't enjoy it, I see the good in it all and the reality of
everything, all connected, all leading down the same dark path.
I posted all the way back in 2011 a few simple statements that make me giddy with excitement:
The clock nears midnight. Soon we will enter 2012, a year with quite a name to live up to. By this time next year we will be at one of three
1. Recovering from the effects of December 21st, should anything prove to happen on that date.
2. Sitting with a little bit of found hope now that Ron Paul has won the presidency.
3. Miserable and complacent as the world continues to get worse, and we continue to accept it.
In all my honesty, I believe that the most likely of these outcomes to occur would be the third. While we can hope for some kind of global change, be
it a catastrophe that opens the minds of all, or some kind of mass spiritual awakening, or some kind of grand event that will unite the world... we
must be ready for that which comes if these things do not come to pass.
Why the excitement? Because I was right. ATS was in an uproar back then. There were several mentions of the term "revolution" week after week and
people were finally getting "Mad as hell and they weren't going to take it anymore!" But sadly... the Declaration and its prophetic words hold ever
...all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the
forms to which they are accustomed.
And it maddens me. The fight that so many people can have and can digest in upon themselves and yet continue to do nothing about it.
Your movements fail. You do them again.
Your petitions fail. You write more.
Your politicians all end up the same. You elect them some more.
Your voices are ignored. You continue to speak.
The definition of insanity rests within the confines of the soul of the modern American, wanting change so badly but too ignorant to see that the ways
they were told to go about that change don't work, they never have worked, they never will.
It is the equivalent of standing next to a fire when someone tells you to put it out by blowing onto it. In any normal situation, the person would
learn that blowing at the fire doesn't do anything, and in most cases just makes things worse. So what does a normal person do? They try new things.
They keep trying until they find the thing that will put out that fire.
But not America. Not Americans. They keep blowing on the fire because Uncle Sam told them that is the way to do it. 2+2=5 because Uncle Sam said so.
Ignore the better ways and the history of our world because blowing on that fire is the only way and it will work... eventually. That is what dear
Uncle Sam keeps on telling you in their 1984 dreamworld.
But better men have discovered long, long ago that the proper way to quell that fire is to use water. There may be water damage to follow, but water
can dry. Ashes will not pick themselves up and go back together again.
My friends allow me to introduce you to a radical concept, an idea that history has shown to work through countless times, a tried and true way to
depose tyrannical governments who no longer accept or listen to the wills of the people.
The water to the fire that is out of control government.
*Gasp. Shock and awe. Inconceivable.*
Strangely enough, we were even given permission to do it in the Declaration of Independence. Isn't that wierd that the Founding Fathers would thing of
such a thing?
Don't worry folks. No need to jump the gun just yet. Let's just wait for Operation American Spring to come and really put a pin in the behinds of
those in Washington. After all, have you read their mission statement? With change this exciting they are bound to gain some ground, right?
Their plan of action:
1. Field millions or multi millions of people into Washington DC, unarmed and lawful, and stand around picketing.
2. Have at least one million of those people stay in DC and basically live there or... "occupy" it.
Well the claim is that by doing step number 2, somehow this is going to cause the current government leaders to step down. If that happens then step 3
would be to create an interim government consisting of supporters of the Tea Party in Congress. Whatever, I guess. They have this claim that if Egypt
could do it, so can we. Problem is, Egypt used violence. It was a violent revolution just like all of Arab Spring.
But where have I seen this concept before? OH YEAH! The Occupy movement. In fact, I was there at Occupy DC on more than once occasion. I was also at
Occupy Philadelphia and Occupy New York, and I was a member of the various Facebook groups. Hell, there had to be at least 100-200 different occupy
movements around the nation with probably millions upon millions of people involved.
How did that turn out?
"Well you see, they never had a clear defined goal so they never would have gotten far anyway."
Yeah, I've heard all the excuses. They are the same excuses made for every rally, petition, protest, ect. that fails.
Revolution works. Do people not realize in the last decade alone how many violent revolution have deposed their governments successfully? The number
is ridiculous. Not to say that they replaced them with better leaders, but that is just like your opinion man.
But not in America. Oh no. We are too "civilized" for such "barbarism". With our iPhones and our Panera Breads and our American Idol... we sound like
old Britain, whining of the barbarism of guerrilla tactics because all Americans wouldn't line up in a field and get shot by superior firepower "like
We need to get over ourselves. There is a fire burning. It is raging out of control and all people want to do it keep blowing on it. We have an
endless supply of water but for how long? How long until the government takes that resource away from us? How long before it is too late and we just
have to watch it all burn to the ground without any hope of stopping it?
The choice is simple people. You either use the water (revolution) to put out the fire and clean up the mess afterwards... or you let it all burn to
ashes, no chance and no hope of ever seeing your freedom, your liberty, your American Dream - ever again.
Am I talking to a wall or are people actually willing to listen yet?
