Okay, so you're out for yours. You're convinced the government is so bad, it's course irreversable, that it has to be "overthrown!" There is no other way to end the greed, corruption, and oppression. That's you. What about the tens of millions who are content with what they have? What about the tens of millions who agree and are relatively okay with the (awful) form democratic representation they currently have. Hell, what about the tens of millions of people (who I would group myself under) who believe that with good will, unwaivering integrity, and collective bearing that things can be reversed. Are you or the man who wrote the article going to decide what is right and just?
I once remember a man who called himself "the decider," and I didn't agree with how that whole thing panned out.
Well said! I do not think many people touting revolution really look at the larger social, emotional and reconstruction issues that would ensue if there ever were a full fledged revolution in America. Too many are too eager to shoot rather than shout for their rights these days.
