Not to sound pessimistic, but what guatantees are there that this ConFederation won't later on become another Federation? I'm not implying that this
is the intention now, I'm thinking along the lines of the Soviet Revolution - that it promised an utopia, but became the same old feudal system.
I guess everyone who would join a ConFederation would know that they probably wouldn't be able to live in a new America - which makes a revolution
even more distasteful. Most likely, many people would begin to ask themselves why they can't just change the current system.
Because there simply are no laws that can create a good government forever. The current situation is the proof of that. You will maybe create a new
America for another 100-200 years, then the same globalists are there again. And this for a struggle that could take decades, probably cost a lot of
people their lives, be expernsive, and, I believe, would probably end up being a movement of people who use the organization for personal purposes.
Now - to the struggle itself. First off, as we can see in all organizations, there are no single united view. There will always be splinter cells with
a similar idea, but not identical. Small differences could mean another organization that can even turn hostile towards the original one. This
increases the risk of "internal" fighting, both organizations trying to appeal to the public instead of doing useful work.
Secondly - if the movement is successful, it won't probably be so in years. Obvisously, time is not in the people's hands. This is not because more
oppressive laws can, and probably will be implemented (during the building up of the movement). It is for the fact that technology also advance during
this time. Better technology means better chance for the Federation to stop the ConFederation.
For example - your movement decides to, say, demonstrate. First you must send this intention to other people in the movement - that is, you must tell
other people by phone, internet etc. Better technology means better surveillance of these messages. I mean that they could make you "disappear"
before the demonstration ever took place.
But this is not just about avoiding surveillance. It is about the Federation's use of offensive technology too - weapons to use against you during
the demonstration. Sound- and light-based weapons could very well become the standard in the near future. Or what about special passes for the subway
and busses? Or further down the line - police robots, even though it does sound like sci-fi now, it isn't as fictional when you meet a machine that
doesn't care what happens to the people it shoots.
Despite all this, I would really like to see such an ideal movement, but I can't just see such a thing becoming reality. I share the thought with
SystemiK: too little too late.
