There are other options. Just because you aren't being presented with them, doesn't mean they don't exist.
However, many of the politicians in our nations are beholden to the very small group of people causing many of the problems.
Violent revolution tends to wreck things. I don't like the solutions many people are presenting. For example, I don't believe in a lack of a social
contract like the Tea Party. I also have no interest in the remarketed communist state being floated by those marketing the Occupy movement. As for
the religious nuts slathering on the sidelines, I trust them even less.
I'm not for full out smash and burn. I'd like to see a more surgical approach to a cancerous problem.
Now failing to address what even "They" know is a problem isn't acceptable. I'm not opposed to the French Revolution. Either we correct these people
now, or the wider World is going to "correct" us at some point. Because while everyone is talking the One Percent, on a global level you and I ....we
are the top Five Percent. More likely the top 3%.
If you were to project the problems and the demographics of the Bourgeois and the Royal-Right-To-Rule classes of Europe from the Enlightenment through
to the Bolshevik Revolution onto the global stage today, what you would find is that you and I, we are the merchant class, the Earls, the Barons, the
Counts, the Chevaliers.
Not getting the top 0.01% and the political laps dogs under control is going to eventually have the effect of the World wanting to put you and I to
They are clearly not acting in anyone's best interests but their own. From the Corporate Oligarchs, to the infamous "Military-Industrial-Complex." I
say that as someone who isn't opposed military in any way. Nor am I opposed to capitalism.
There are WAY fewer of "them." And I'm not talking the 1%. I'm talking the 0.01%.
Many of the institutions your being told to hate over and over - those institutions are often working to fix these problems. The message to hate
these agencies and economic actors is likely being funded by the 0.01% to favour their interests.
