What are the times teaching you?

The times are teaching us that the people in government are in a conspiracy against citizens' freedoms.

Too many people are lazy toward a freedom-stealing government.

And that is why there is no hurry for a much needed revolt.

But I say now is the time to set aside morals for an inner-country war.

Yet the times tell me no one wants a revolutionary leader to step forth and lead the masses.

They are teaching your body to not be able to think by putting pesticides and hormones in your food and the air you breathe. In School? They teach you things about your wonderful government's achievements with war and how they won and prevailed-not the people that lost their lives for no reason at all other than greed.

Honestly, Id love for it to be an actual conspiracy, it means we could fight it...

Because it means its not all just human nature, Greed = Corruption, it could all just be human nature at play, corporations act on greed, politicians than act on their own best interest not ours.

everyone has to be taught to share, no child just knows to share his toys they have to be told to, Some of us apparently learned that lesson better than others.

I don't think its about money. Its about a greed for power. Endless power. No matter how they get that power (in our current case, fiat money, war, terrorism, sickness....)

When you can buy anything, money loses its value to you. It becomes a secondary factory.

Power, on the other hand. Is like a powerful drug. You just want more and more.

To me, "sharing" can only happen among "equals". I let you borrow my shovel and you borrow my rake. That is "sharing". Socialists want "sharing" to mean "few work" and pay the rest who do not work. I want no part of that system. Thanks anyway.

maybe the people don't want to be led to certain destruction by people that are quite obviously imbeciles.

people are risk averse and require a significant promise of success of any adventure.

when they are given an opportunity to fully assess both the risks and rewards of an investment opportunity they will make a decision based on the probability of success.

they aren't showing up for your revolution because you have not shown to them that you have a firm grasp on what will be standing in your way.

Adam Smith, in his inquiry concerning the nature and causes of the Wealth of Nations, postulated that men are motivated by their own self interests at all times. People don't trouble themselves with fanciful philosophical notions of right and wrong or good and evil...these are obnoxious concepts in practice.

If they aren't showing up...the only plausible explanation is that most don't consider it in their own best interests.
