Ok lets approach this at a different angle, We both appear to be banging our heads on each others brick walls.
Right back in the OP I described how I thought revolution could be achieved.
Your turn, tell me how exactly you would go about a violent revolution and how it would end up.
Step by step please.
Very well then. Even though you didn't put it up step by step at all.
First of all, nonviolent revolution will do nothing. They will not be harmed by it in any way, so there isn't any instigation to care. If they do
feel they are being harmed, lo and behold the powerful "LIE" machine. It can produce any physical or abstract lie, without tarnishing the user. They
will use these "lies" to enact their plans, as they have done for centuries. When all of our freedoms are taken away (almost are now) there will be
no choice but to violently up rise. It doesn't even have to happen violently. It could start with a peaceful protest. Then the people hold up
traffic, causing a major traffic jam. The governor calls in the state militia, which blocks off the protesters. We all know what happens next, with or
without instigation, as it has been occurring for many years. One shot fires off, and then two. Now the people have two options.
-Cry about the wounded, and go home acting as if nothing had happened. MSM shows up, covers the situation, and nothing really comes out of it except
maybe a charity or two. Or maybe a new law?
-The people are fed up, go home grab arms, and stand outside on their streets. The government tells them to stay inside or else. No one turns back.
Whole families are outside holding weapons like an HK 9mm in a SMG casing, Benneli's and AKs and AR15s. Workers decide not to go to work that day.
Schools are closed, because the teachers are outside their homes.Airport pilots decide not to fly. Middle class citizens are angry and decide to
complain to the government. The whole world is keeping an eye on America, trying to decide who is right, and who is wrong. China can't choose.
England can't choose. Who to help? Family, or the government? Soldiers try to get in touch with home to no avail, so they talk to their sergeants.
Nothing. The colonel? Nothing. So they decide to take matters into their own hands. Guess who decides to open up fire first? because who will make all
the more money? Citizens are arrested and the devil removes his splendid Red white and blue, revealing his true colors : A bloody battlefield of
Constitutional rights, and money. Many top heads such as CEO and governors decide to take cover in Washington. Wall Street top shots are taking heed
to the bunkers in their enormous mansions. Right before an F-16 Fighter jet pilot is deployed to land, His commanding officer gives him permission to
contact his wife. She tells him that she is inside with her two year old son, and how the government has lied to them, and the bankers are stealing
money, and how citizens are fed up.
Grade A communities are transofrmed into Baghdad-like skirmish platforms. With small troops of citizens hiding in homes, and a couple of bodies in the
street. Street gangs go home whatever family they have left, deciding that they should protect their community (Yes it can happen.) The F-16 pilot
decides to go to his friends, and his officer and they discuss, that something isn't right. The borders are closed off, and many citizens run to the
wilderness, or the Rockies. The Army decides that it will not attack it's own people, stating that the citizens have not let a bullet leave any
barrels, and that many laws are unconstitutional. A small group of willing peoples decides that it is time. Live forever as slaves to the banking and
eventually become so poor that government creates a law where, if you are too poor to pay back taxes and such, you are to work in a FEMA camp until
so, or stand up and fight.
The Army decides to promote peace, and George Casey decides to not wage civil war with it's own people. Several Military officers are relieved from
duty, and others are convinced that America may not be "The land of The Free" anymore. Civil War is imminent. Many caring Americans appear on MSM
declaring that Civil War will bring the destruction of America. Civil War happens. Many Riot officers are killed, as whole communities band together
to fight back. The Army decides NOT to help, and many Army men are convinced to come home, or desert the force. Backup military is called in, But with
the lack of workers, low fuel and ammunition are looming. Prices for supplies rise, as private groups take control of resources, linking a whole
underground network of Food, water, and supplies. A whole underground Militia is formed. Homeland Security decides to commence killing of everyone.
(this is not like in movies though) Many servicemen refuse to fire upon the innocent, and Obama meets with several foreign leaders overseas. A hidden
group pays off Britain to attack and secure America, and the Army is sent in to protect America and it's citizens. Small bases are created and
Britain is fought off. The war has been ongoing for less than a year. Homeland Security troops now refuse to waste their life on millions of American
citizens. Several countries come to America's aide, by hearing of various distress calls, letters and emails sent from scared Americans. The small
group bombs the Federal Reserve, and Americans who can, leave on ships to other countries, who welcome them. They live with their relatives, and swear
to work until America is rebuilt. Bullets and bodies lie in America's streets. Homeland Security surrenders and many key figures are arrested for
breaching the Constitution. Thousands of (faux) dollars are lost, and many bank accounts are destroyed. Thousands of Americans are arrested for the
war. Import and Export come to a halt, as small communities appoint leaders to rebuild and grow food. Many communities connect, and communication
opens again, as people are riding bikes to other cites and driving what is left to other states. Many various countries come to aide America rebuild.
Various family owned businesses are started, and communication is fully re-opened again. It takes America 5 years to rebuild.
I decide not to write anymore, my hands are tired. This is a Brief and vague overview of what'll happen in the end. Violent or nonviolent.
