If a bully was pushing you around trying to get you to punch him, eventually, you're going to work up the courage to fight him. The same principle
doesn't seem to apply to how we are being treated in this country. One side wants us to work, the other side wants us to have individual rights, one
side wants peace, one side gains money from the wars. It's a F**ked up system and I know a bunch of people are getting tired of it but no one is
overturning anything. No one is doing anything monumental. No one is making history the way I learned about revolutions and power (given, history was
written by the winners, so the stories are always going to be different of the truth, dead men can't talk or give the facts)
Buying a Guy Fawkes mask isn't going to help either, who do you think owns the rights to the movie, let alone the merch? Look at the dumb logic in
that one. You're feeding consumerism to make a protesting point about consumerism and your society/political believe systems.
I'm sorry for ranting, this isn't my place to do so. But nothing will get done in America unless we all overthrow our local governments. Small
towns, marshal law, whatever. Make it work. Because you have to work from the outside in. We are likeminded people here but I would bet on my life, no
one here would organize to take down a government. We can talk about it but really, in numbers is where it counts. 200 people storm a government
building. That's an army of 200. more people get in it doubles, and triples, and quadruples! But alas, this country doesn't have what it takes. By
this point you're asking, what about you? Talk the talk but you can't walk the walk. And you're right. Because one person can't do it alone. This
isn't a stupid action movie. It takes more than one to take down an empire. Monopoly. That's all this country is, is a nice little game and we're
all the pieces lined up like a row of ducks doing what we're told.
