Seriously, Wrab, we do need to display some compassion towards those who really are cornered and try helping rather than condemning them. You
will not understand their predicaments until you walk in their shoes.
Okay, you know absolutely nothing about me. You are making a habit of personalizing your replies. I'd ask again, as I have once before, keep to the
topic and not me, personally. I'll be more than happy to do the same and debate the topic, as I approach things on a case by case, thread by thread
basis for the opinions I form.
You may insist others follow the unjust law or challenge them, but sometimes, we need to position ourselves in their shoes and judge their
capacity. When push comes to shove, it is either civil disobedience or torching yourself in front of a government building to prove a point.
There is a mindset that favors a revolutionary (perhaps literally) approach to change. I'm among the very strongest against that mindset you will
ever meet. The talk of change of the system by force is suicide by government agent. It's not a fate I would seek out, but some in our nation are
leaning that way in these very troubled times.
Some also see the rich as the problem. (shakes head)... naww. Rich isn't the problem, as the worst things the rich do are done within the law. That
law is written creatively by a whole different class within our society. A political class. That class can be removed...and force isn't required.
Just a lack of apathy by more than a voting minority. The party hacks always show up...but not that many more do and annual stats show it.
A past rant on revolutionary mindsets
(Pardon the title if it's a bit harsh, and it's not intended to be personal. However, that's one of the best texts to understand where I'm coming
from...as you've taken a strong interest across threads in that)
I favor change by using the system itself, against the system directly. It's designed to be used that way, if we'd bother to even try.
