As my topic title states, the riots should continue, and they should grow larger, and those of you who actually want something changed in this world,
instead of accepting the status quo and going about your 9-5 while complaining in the evenings on the web, perhaps you should all join in as well.
You might want to consider that the 9-5 is not a bad deal.It generally indicates that one is working for their money. The routine, or rat race, is not

But... I guess that all depends on what exactly you seek to accomplish. If your goal is to destroy, then that is what you will do... either to
yourself or those around you.
