And as Ghandi said - "Be the change you want to see in the world."
So how do you get 150+ million people (the "thinkers") to mobilize for a single idea?
I'm seeing how starting with smaller more localized movements would work, but one obstacle I see there is the cities. In small towns and counties, it would be easier to get people to pick a good-ol boy from the area who will stick up for them against the Fed and others. But the cities are much harder to win because of diversion of people and their perception of things. How could you take the same "posse" approach in the bigger cities where much larger portions of the voting public exist? You would need to convince them as well.
Well as I have said you have to set an example. If you knew of a place where this was working would you consider moving there? The hard part is getting it started and working. Once that happens then people will flock to it to be free. The cities will come along later as they see the success of the smaller communities. This is why I have said it will not happen over night or all at once. Someone has to create a working model first and that is a monumental task. It seems impossible and that is why all you hear is why it won't work from all the nay sayers.
That is why I say it could take a hundred years to fully implement. But someone or group has to initiate it and stay focused on it come hell or high water, and it could take more then on lifetime to fully realize its completion.edit on 29-10-2010 by hawkiye because: corrections

by posting it on ATS and discussing
it .... BOY, they're really gonna be
c'mon guys, it's a pipe dream
or a fantasy or maybe even
a rant against the system but
u can't be seriously thinking
whatever u do is gonna make
a difference toward change.
Just as soon as the Federal Reserve
goes bust, then the World Reserve
will be standing by to take it's place
and people will fall for it hook, line
and sinker because they have yet
to be awakened and they will be
offered a solution.
IMO, this is a useless thread
as I've already stated the only change
worthy of having will be divine intervention.
So what do you propose would get the ball rolling on something like this at the local levels? I kind of see where you are going with this and agree on many of your points... it's almost as though you're saying to build a silent movement that grows and by the time there is enough knowledge to try and stop it, there will be enough communities and people involved that it will snowball and TPTB won't be able to stop it. How do you plant that seed all across the country in the smaller communities? How do you create the initiatives that would be shared and agreed on by those communities so that there is a coherent form of governance forming that could eventually replace the broken forms of governance today? Wouldn't there have to be some "handing off of the baton" between the old to the new and wouldn't that be the point of a clash?
