Revolution - Now that it's done...

So... a lot of us have come to the conclusion that the powers of this world are corrupt and trying to ruin the population, numbing us all with poison and lies; their every breath tainting the air around them, suffocating who they deem to be the denizens of this world.

Well, let's say that their was a world revolution which saw "the elite" crumble, restoring the planet back to the people. What now? What exactly has been achieved? What will be achieved shortly thereafter?

Who would then take control of the world, and how would the people be able to come together and restore order? The only way we all know how to govern people is through certain systems e.g. capitalism, socialism etc. These systems have all proved to be pretty decent in theory, but it's obvious that they all have downsides that seem to always leave people at a disadvantage. If these systems are followed soon after a worldwide revolution, how long would it be until another group of nasty people hold the reins of the world? These are things that need to be thought about. No doubt most of you here have thought about it, but it's important. What good would a revolution be if the world gets run the same way it does today?

Has humanity lost a battle altogether?

A revolution, any revolution, benefits the next in line to assume control.
You are exactly right.
An "ideal" cannot lead, a theory cannot lead and direct, someone or some group will fill that void created by the revolution, and to assume that the leaders would be representative of a collective mankind is as realistic as believing that a designed NWO government being forcibly installed would be as equally representative.
This madness we call civilization will cycle all the way through to,
out of control to big to manage type rule and eventual collapse,
back to small localized tribal living.
Running the world, ruling the world, has been a mad mans dream for ages.
If we all did a better job of running and ruling ourselves the world would take care of itself.

good thinking whine!

I have alternative proposals - I'll make a thread.

Definitely. I agree with a lot of what you're saying.

A new world order of a good kind that benefits not only mankind, but every other lifeform on this planet would be great. At the moment it's definitely highly unrealistic, and I don't know how humanity could sustain itself harmoniously with the current way we all think, but it has to be done at some stage.

I would like for a worldwide revolution to occur. I mean, you have to be mad if you don't want it, but doing so without thought of the possible repercussions is something that shouldn't be done. If I had the answer to all of the world's problems I would voice them, but unfortunately I don't.

I do believe that mankind does need some sort of leadership. Perhaps the leadership post revolution could lead in a primitive way, much like tribal living, but of course, not as primitive. I mean, the tribal way seemed to do the environment and wildlife a lot of good, but I think that we're definitely beyond that system now, what with technological advancements and stuff.

Perhaps is humanity became spiritually aware universally we'd probably be able to solve these problems almost instantly, but in saying that, spirituality only fuels the ego in some people, and if spirituality ended up being like a religion, then we'd be back to square one, what with the amount of division that religion has caused.

Urgh, it's all too difficult. Where to start, where to finish, and what to do after we've finished? If only I could put my exact thoughts into words that make sense.

All these systems are great and could work, but people love to screw it up for the rest of us for their own greed. Nothing will change until mankind suffers so greatly that all the greed, lies and corruption people perform will not be tolerated. That's all it's gonna take which is why I've been hoping for whatever the NWO throws at us to just come already. People need a wake up call to see what exactly their own ignorance and stupidity brought us to. I don't want people to die and I don't want to see a war but it's been evident to me for quite a while that people, outside of this little group we have here on ATS, just don't give a damn. They need to be snapped back into reality and it's not the reality that the secret rulers have put in place in for them. I know we'll suffer and it'll be hard but I hope that whatever they have up their sleeves is so sinister that people will finally wake the f up. The only thing is that it just makes me so angry that because 98% of the rest of mankind is ridiculously stupid, ignorant and selfish, the rest of us few good guys are going to have to suffer.
Only to be standing there in the end, smacking them upside the head saying, "I told you so you freckin waste of flesh!"

I agree, unfortunately it must be peacefull. I come from Belfast N Ireland and lived in london during the 90's and have been present at my fair share of Riots. Then i grew up and had kids and stuff. I don't want to be killed by t.p.t.b they can do that now, and get away with it. What Hurts them most is.........Not using money. It ruins their system. And its so easy to do.

I grow my own food and my truck(when I use it) runs on veg oil with NO farting around with filters etc.

If they can't tax you how can they use your money for wars, police or infrastructure?

Rebellion from the comfort of my own home.

I think that the most important thing for any political group is to get rid of the rhetoric of Revolution.

As Hakim Bey writes: "The slogan "Revolution!" has mutated from tocsin to toxin, a malign pseudo-Gnostic fate-trap, a nightmare where no matter how we struggle we never escape that evil Aeon, that incubus the State, one State after another, every "heaven" ruled by yet one more evil angel. "


"In sum, realism demands not only that we give up waiting for "the Revolution" but also that we give up wanting it." (

Every revolution is always replaced by another system of control. Mao even called for continuous revolutions in order to maintain social control.

When any nation falls, heck when anyone in charge falls there's a "power vacuum".

People rally around the most powerful person nearby. Instead of one giant group, there would be a bunch of smaller groups ruled by the warlord du jour.

The people in charge would help themselves and their friends and they would, in turn, create a new elite.

Along the way, many people die for no reason other than to perpetuate the cycle or perhaps for their chance to go from the "have nots" to the "haves".
