Supporting the Revolutions

People around the world are supporting and calling for the further support of these uprising. The revolutions in Tunisia were occuring for about 28 days before it was put on mainstream news in the uk. They would rather these protests were dealt with and go away. I have news for them..
They wont. This is spreading it is going viral and as much as the powers that be dont want this change it is coming.
Even yesterday in the uk the politicans still showed support of Mubarak He is our man. We want him there. Egypyt works with Isreal to blockade palastine.This is not the kind of regime change that is welcomed in the western world.
Necessity is the mother of invention and this is plain to see in Egypt. News channels, mobile phones, water and the internet all cut out. The news still got out and continues to do so. some people used the old fashioned radios and sent out morse code signals, These were picked up and tweeted.
A group of freespeach ativists on the net opened up chat rooms and vpns and dial up to allow the flow of news in and out of egypt. Most of these peeps work Anon and in times past have in times past worked in countries with censored internet like china and iran. Wike chat rooms have been set up.
The movement of information has been paramount to these revolutions. They have been both digital and analog at the same time. Occuring on the internet and the streets. . Nothing like it has been seen before. The internet, social networking sites, mobile phones and cameras have made a massive difference.
They have the backing of international grassroot info support and that support is making a difference. Leaders all over the word are learning fast... Information no longer respects borders and there attempts of mass censorshiping are wayning.
Now days an idea can viral and spread almost of the spead of light. This is and will expontialy shake the existing power structure. That is why last year the government in the uk was concerned that a random person behind a computer viraled an idea regarding what song should be christmas number one. It was a success and this concerned the government. Not because of what he did. But because of the the potential of this idea.....

I feel that they're right and have been hoping that one day the people of america, many of which who have fought/given/worked very long and hard to keep our country running even though 25% of our annual defense budget goes *unaccounted for, even through all the tax money thats been wasted. Still continue to work 60 hours a week and pay taxes. I feel its coming, and its going to take the people to stop fearing govt action against the talk of nonviolent revolution. But the problem is most of the working class doesn't support it, what needs to happen is legitimate backing, not 20 year olds in the street throwing bottles and spraypainting everything. Until public opinions swayed, i'm sorry to say, this failing government will be allowed to continue to fail. Have a great day.

I couldn't agree more with the O.P. I think we all should closely monitor all of the events that unfold as I believe this is a big test run in case this happens on our soil in the U.S. Which in my opinion will not happen here as the populace is well armed so the TPTB will have to deal with a far more arrogant angry mob of citizen. Therefore, a far more severe crackdown of our civil rights will occur. We were training for civil unrest in 1998 in my National Guard unit.We built a city in the middle of nowhere at Stones Ranch, in Connecticut.

i love the idea of not paying tax's and no government but when government is gone it will be left to the military to clean up the mess the only way we would regain control of our country's is to get them on our side first

I thinking it's catching. Hope this is a more appropriate place to post
this video. This is just another example of what people are suggesting
in response to what is going on in the world.YouTube Video
There is a mass awakening going on. There is NOTHING they can do about it now. They will try to
stop it but they can't. They have underestimated the human race.

Not at all possible. You will always have some kind of taxes to pay, unless your idea of a perfect world doesn't include any kind of infrastructure. Roads, bridges, traffic control devices, all those things require money to build and maintain. Now if it was shifted to a more local level where the taxes collected were controlled and used locally that would be a lot better. The main waste of tax money right now seems to be on a federal level. Just like what the tea party has been saying all along, smaller government which would also mean less taxes, makes perfect sense in my mind, put the control back to a state/local level and things will sort themselves out. Isn't it a lot easier to voice your concerns and opinions on a local level and actually be heard than to try screaming at someone sometimes several states away in D.C. who won't actually hear you out or care as they are far removed from the problem?

It is lovely to see such support online for such events. Really for me it has been inspiring. It kind of all falls under the same umbrella. The cyber protests,wikleaks, Anon. It looks like a movement and atm it is still gathering.
There are all kinds of ways people can help even without being directly involved in the protests. Just keeping an eye in events, informing people and sharing information helps. boycottes, letters, phonecalls. online petitions like the one linked all help to put :

This is a GREAT source of information Thank you so much for posting it. Support comes from unexpected places

reply to post by purplemer

Pay no mind to the Islamophobes who can't seem to get past the historical potential and importance of what is happening here and insist on carrying on their religious wars by spamming this tripe all over the boards. You could not be more right. This is the about the people and what they want their countries to be,

The military would be on the peoples side (in my opinion) The military is made up of all of us ... just regular guys excluding the higher up corrupts. But do you think if The US were to step in and start a revolution the military would fight us back.. I think so to an extent but that would mean brother against brother. Coming from military and contracting defense positions. Most of us hated the corrupt and fat headed leaders. I think it would only be a matter of time... someone will light the spark and soon will come the tinder...eventually leading to flames. But who knows when??

posted on Jan, 30 2011 @ 09:54 PM
The govt. would call anyone protesting anarchists or terrorists or something.
As long as the delusion lasts.....thats how long it would take for the military to change sides.

why isn't america doing anything

posted on Jan, 30 2011 @ 10:40 PM
Its gonna be fun for american government

for years they have used 'democracy' as the catalyst for change in the world.
but the model they used is based on coruption, paying puppets to secure their interests,
and the flawed free trade that was supposed to lift the poor in these countries.

well, finally everyone is realising that it is nothing but BS.

they now have to cut their egyptian puppet's strings.

you can't spout BS about giving the people democracy, and then try to retain your corrupt pawns.
if the US, in any of these countries, interfers in any way, nothing will change, and it will get worse.
if the us backs or recommends anyone, then the democratic model in the us will be questioned.

its not good if the people there voted in the brotherhood, which is anti us anti israel, but you have to stand by the choice of the people. if you dont, then that proves that the US model is un-democratic.

i dont see the egyptian people accepting the newly appointed egyptian vice-p either, as he also close to the US.

all these counties (and some western ones) need a complete clean-out from the top down.
new elections immediately (monitored by acceptable citizens, and independant outside monitors.
all democracies should appoint/elect their govt officials, but should also have citizens along side each govt official
as an oversight committee. individuals, can not be trusted to remain 'clean' with the temptations in the positions involved.

I think we all need to cautiously realize that you can't tweet change, you can't facebook-status-update it into existence either. When the cell batteries die, and the power grid is smashed to hell, who is going to stand?

More importantly , how many of they/us are really willing to stand for a belief REGARDLESS of if it has 'viral' support?

I expect something new will top the header boards and search trending within two weeks. These 21st century 'revolts' tend to last until the cell battery needs a charge.

It ultimately takes more than gadgetry to prompt true change, and their is a definite danger in having an over reliance on technology to 'spread the word'-----considering one can't be really sure exactly who's 'word' is even being spread to begin with!
Technological gadgets and any 'viral' trending seem to attract band-wagon jumpers and the clueless. Adding nothing but overblown chaos to an already unstable situation. These are HUMAN problems, and only face to face human interaction between those affected by these situations can solve them.

My opinion.

Some group, military junta or autocrat will fill the resulting vacuum. It's the Middle East, it's a given. The new government will make/try to make some cosmetic changes, but it will be business as usual. People will still be poor and destitute.

After 15 years and counting in the area, call me jaded.
