Why haven't we started this Revolution yet?

(Move to most suitable location)

Is it me or should we have started this by now? In a time when the government is interested in what you are watching and downloading off of the internet, and who's calling who overseas or county to county, it seems they've succeeded in dilluting us and getting us so consumed in pointless mind games with ourselves and those around us. We are more focused on who's walking down the street at 11 pm and not important things like, why the hell are we wasting our days doing nothing about our future.
We have no privacy, and our pursuit of happiness has many detours, it seems the government does everything they can to pull the rope tighter around this freedom and I don't get why no one wants to do anything about it. "We know the truth, but prefer lies," but why? Are we too scared of dying, or of losing the fight and thus more freedom? Or are we just too scared of succeeding and not knowing what to do with all that power? This is why we end up having to vote for "d-bags" and "turd sandwiches." No one thinks they are decent enough, or feels they have what it takes to be the one in charge, except for egotistical maniacs. Well I too am an egotistical maniac, infact, aren't we all? Where's the ego in you?
Don't you want to be apart of something bigger than you? "There are those who make s#it happen and those that s#it happens to," well who sick and tired of things happeneing to them? Well you let it happen. Either except being pushed down, or stand up and tell that retarded little punk that its about time he gets on his horse and get the hell out of this town, or we take him out of this town in pieces.

As Tracy Chapman wrote, "We're talkin' about a revolution, but it sounds like a whisper."

Many people out there are apathetic. They simply don't care. They are more interested in their own material gain, rather than doing anything for others.

What can anyone do that really changes things?

Well, anyone who has listened to Alex Jones recently notices there is an escalation in language and posture amongst his guests... but I suspect that is what the other side wants, they have prepared for a revolution and would probably use it to further the depopulation agenda and lay down de facto martial law, and I say de facto because the US has already lost Habeas Corpus it seems, so it's half way there.

Personally I think the path is a within the system revolution upto such a point where the military, just like happened in Portugal in 1975 takes things unto itself, and simply occupies the capitol and the whitehouse. Then you can have political change with minimal consequence. Of course this depends on how many good men are really in the pentagon and how willing they are to go against the military-industrial complex which is being manipulated by the world elitist parasites.

One of the most important things we can do right now is to educate others.

Not to fill their heads with conspiracies, but true teaching.

Make DVDs of reputable free videos out there and give them away to your friends, co workers. Share the knowledge.

Have a video night at your place. Invite your friends over, have some snacks, and really get down to business about what's going on in the world. Have an adult conversation.

That's what you can do.

But you should also never stop learning. Check out how-to books from the library, talk to the old timers, listen to stories of how people survived on almost nothing during the depression.

There's lots of stuff that can be done. It depends on the perception. Otherwise the "nothing" excuse sounds like a woman who has three closets full of clothes and has "nothing to wear."

Before you try to turn this around on me and ask me what I do to help... I educate myself. I teach people around me little by little. I don't throw it all in their faces, however. I'm polite and sneak information in there. Majority of the time they understand via this method. And I'm actually surprised at some people. They know what's going on and then share additional information with me that I didn't know. It becomes a session of enriching each other and amazing when it happens. But I would have never known if I didn't strike up a conversation.

Everyone has something to offer. But you have to take the time to get out there and start talking to people. Be willing to have people give you "that look." Because some will dismiss you outright.

And there's a huge misconception... some think that in order to help they have to be a one man super hero and do something HUGE that makes a difference. So they do nothing, because it's just not possible to have a one man hero.

It's the small things that count. Plant information seeds in all those you meet. If those seeds sprout, then great. But please don't expect 100% germination rate. Some seeds will simply rot.

So to sum up, the best thing that can be done right now is Empowerment. Anything that empowers someone is what's needed right now.

For some, all they need is information and sharing. For others, they might enjoy learning how to grow their own food. Or someone else might like to learn how to ID wild plants. Others might want to learn to build something with their hands.

No one wants to feel helpless. And everyone wants to feel like they have a purpose.

If they ask you what needs to be done to repay you for your help, say you don't want anything for yourself, but they should "Pay it Forward" to others.

There's many things we can do the question is why are we scared to do them? We could fight. We could all just walk on washington. We could not goto work. We could just sign petitions, or we could do nothing. We need to atleast do something. Politics is dead and maybe we should realize that.

posted on Aug, 2 2008 @ 10:03 AM
See the way I always saw it was, the government works for us. Why don't we start giving them ultimatums and start demanding things or we turn on them and throw them to the wolves and re-constitute ourselves. We can't be scared of the people who are nothing without us. Reform Washington by 2010 or Revolution.

.... its never to late to start saying no to the government

i think it requires a heavy urge to change something.

the way we are headed in this world seems will improve the number of those people.

its possible that its already to late then.

i think a good start is to try to convince as much people as possible that we are all of the same origin and need to help each other.

if social networks are built on that intention the gov. will start to learn the meaning of the word fear as they put on us by the media 24/7.

I would say because people are too comfortable sitting behind their desks at the computer, typing away at a keyboard talking about it, since they haven't been pushed out of their comfort zone yet, and can not connect the dots from seeing it's needed to the point of it actually being needed. There's a difference between a revolution and people sitting on their butts typing away like mad in the darkness of their livingroom or in their well lighted office in the safety of their cubicle.

Government, all Government, of each and every country knows that people are set into the mindset of apathy and complacency in that they will never act towards revolution until the doors are knocked on and people begin getting arrested for blogging negatively about the Government, etc, ad naseum.

To top it off, you will rarely hear about it, because the media will turn a blind eye like the traitors they are, bought and paid for in that they know to go against the Government's of the world will get them shut down. While one reporter, or two, or even an occasional television producer may consider it, if they had morals to begin with, they wouldn't get far because it's not their decision to make, it's the people who own the telelcommunications industries choice.

If the media actually had a backbone back like in Vietnam it might actually make a step towards showing us the truth, but due to what they did in Vietnam, the Government has essentially made it more difficult for them to actually do their jobs, because the F.C.C. can fine them, shut them down temporarily, or even go further and shut them down permanently, and label them a rogue entity as well.

The revolution will not be televised, and if it actually is, it will be televised in a fashion through propaganda filtered views, and produced as a way to cover up the crimes, not show them for what they are.

* War Profiteering

* Collusion

* Treason

These are actions of the current Administration, and the telecommunication industry, as well as all the slaves of theirs they have at their beck and call.

I don't care if the revolution is televised or not, infact, I hope the media doesn't survive it either since we are all aware of the lies and disinformation they tell us. 90 people were running for president, why they only talk about 3 people? Its a scam. We always get scamed. Lets turn the tide. I don't want to advertise, though look for my tshirts circulating around the country.

The whole system is a scam. Now that you need 100's of millions to effectively run for president if any major power finance has effectively blocked almost everyone but hand picked puppets to run against each other in a pointless satire of real democracy. It's time to change.

I think this is the initial death throws of big government, if enough people wake up to the elitist manipulation the current situation is.

One bit of advice though, it is not enough to fight for democracy in big government, because if it is not present in big business the seeds of tyranny will still be sown and down the line we will find ourselves in the same situation again.

posted on Aug, 2 2008 @ 04:15 PM
I agree, big business needs to go as well. Corporations feel as if they own these people. 10$ an hour isn't enough to pay someone for them to be owned by them its ridiculous. Big corporation is scum.

Some of us like me do things like a lone wolf.

It's only since others wont do jack that they should do or are supposed to do.

Acting like a lone wolf puts time to operate in your own hands with no boss but yourself. You get to do however much you feel needs to be done without conflict of interest with others since you do things alone.

posted on Aug, 2 2008 @ 05:07 PM
Simply put, because it isn't too late yet to handle things in a peaceful manner. There are still people in office on the side of the people. I believe that when the time comes it will be obvious to everyone.

Lone wolf in terms of you work for yourself? Or lone wolf in terms of you taking part in revolutionary things by yourself? That I've been doing. Though working for yourself, as much as I enjoy it, its harder to gain that way. Though that is what I strive for. Though back to this revolution. I'm sure we have plenty of lone wolves out on the prowl, though packs work better.

just stop buying the Eddie Bernays doctrine
foreclose on your debts

The United States of America can not be the land of the free if it is not the land of the brave

any attempt to violently riot will be met with extreme measures .
Today in the USA it is impossible to march, riots will cause you to become incarcerated and quite possibly killed.
But I still believe it is coming ,Because I believe it is going to get much worse in the USA. So bad in fact that there will be mass riots ,civil war or the arrest of millions of people.
The reason for thinking this is that the North American Union
is coming The President no matter who it will be has orders to bring it about . and this will cause the spark .
Best thing you can do for yourself is to understand
What America is who you all are as a people and why the NAU is coming.
Those that fail to understand this will be those that do the rioting .

I don't own brand items. I don't have debt, I buy everything cash. I don't even have credit. All I know is I will die to change this country into what it should be.
And not just for americans, but everyone who deserves freedom.

Many people out there are apathetic. They simply don't care. They are more interested in their own material gain, rather than doing anything for others.

Those two lines say's it all. Also it's fear of loosing your family, your stuff, your job, get stuck in jail, getting hurt or shot.
This lack of freedom to choose for yourself started many years ago and like unchecked rust just keeps on and on and on.

You may laugh but it started with little things which is "for your own good", like helmet and seatbelt laws, making them law.
The point is, it's taking the decision out of your hands and you except it as a minor issue............they won.

Think about it.

There are three good reasons that noone is starting a revolution. 1: a lack of motivation by the general public endorced by propaganda. 2: the refusal of the general public to accept and belive people who understand the situation. 3: no organisation of those that would participate in a revoloution givevn the oputunity. If those problems, especially number three, were to be fixed, a shot at such a revolution exists.
