Hah, didn't expect this many replies. I only check in once or twice a day so I shall try to respond to everyone.

I believe everyone is quick to label everything Communism these days. Some may call me whatever names they might, however, I always respected some of
the merits of the Communist ways, though I don't support most socialistic structure. I feel the failure of the Communist state relies directly on the
ego and power draw of the dictator in charge and if an actual riteous person would take the helm for once, we might see a different side to Communist
I'd like to know more about your ideas though if you are interested in sharing.

Do not worry, I have not come to judge a society on any single group out there, I know better than that. I just know that particularly in my area,
very few people embrace uniqueness or standing up for right in any form.
I like your mantra. It is simple and I suppose I would say I wish to be a builder in this world, at least at the time. In terms of being discouraged,
I am past that point. I have been discouraged enough by enough people that I don't let things like that get me down. Regardless, I am going to keep
trucking along and trying to make a difference.

All those answers you gave, I want to change that. I don't want people to worry about improbability. I want to pull people away from ego driven
personas. I want to rebuild the power structure into one of equality.
Nonetheless, I am glad you too are a freedom fighter and I hope one day our ideals come to pass.

Well I don't believe we can trust people to be themselves. There is too much sway in today's society. From television to all the main stream media,
to corruption and the hidden messages in songs, all the way to the indoctrination of our young to believe something without giving them choice in the
matter. People don't have a chance to be themselves because only days after they are born they are forced into becoming someone else, and that
mentality stays with them forever.
As far as my faith and knowledge is concerned, I never cease to expand them. My faith has evolved from Christian, to Atheist, to a mold of many
different religions and creeds that I feel is unique in itself. I am not one to shun off a particular belief over another and so I incorporate it,
leaving room for all possibility on the spectrum.
As far as my knowledge, well I can never say that I am sufficient there. I believe that knowledge is something that can eternally be obtained and in
the past few years I have been on overdrive. Do I have enough knowledge to aid me in my quest? Probably not, but I will continue to learn until I
I do need to work more on myself though. I never will claim to be a perfect being but I shall always try towards that goal in terms of spirituality
and consciousness. I thank you for your words and I will not take them lightly.

SOME are the converted. As I said, many on here lack the will or drive to do anything. I am not as some people would call an "armchair warrior". I
am spreading the word and the ideals through the most populace creation in the world: the internet. Yes, I know that word on the internet is not
always to be trusted, however, it is true that it is the easiest way to reach the most people.
As far as a grassroots political movement, well, I am sadly afraid that political movement will not do any good at this point. Are we so blind that
these grass root political movements have tried for the last many decades to promote a change to the political spectrum, and so far have failed
miserably? Is it their fault? No. It is the fault of those in power that would choose to quell such rebellion using any means necessary, be it by
financial restrictions and regulations, lies and slandering their name, or flat out crimes and misdeeds against them.
No no. Political activism is impossible and a waste of time. Even with the millions upon millions of people who stood up against things in the past,
this government has proven that they are not willing to listen and not willing to change. I am afraid to say that there really is only one way to open
their eyes to the fact that we are not just tools of the government, but sovereign people.

I'm sure your post was a stab at my post and "rising up" in general. If you do not wish to take part in such discussion, and I assure you that you
are not alone, you can simply choose not to participate. Regardless of why you choose to do it, you are only promoting one of the original points in

Thank you for the kind words my friend. I do indeed try to fortify my ideals around those of other people, for if one mans ideals are another mans
bane, than such an existence would never work. There are bound to be differences of a opinion, no doubt, but in the end I stand to represent a voice
and freedom for every single person, regardless of their background, their beliefs, their financial situation, their religion, their race or
nationality, anything that may set them apart.
Over here we
have one thing in common, we are all Americans. But in the larger scope of things we are more than just that, we are human beings - and we can't
