And it will.
The hero's will come from Europe.
To break this cycle, we need to get dangerous. We need to shake the system to its core, and act on the flaws that we all know, but refuse to address.
We need to start breaking s##t, and not fearing the consequences. We need to stop fearing for our lives, and start regretting that we only have one life to give in the pursuit of our own freedom, and that of our children. We need heroes who will likely die in the process, and we need ways to make sure that the system cannot mutate again into what it has become.
We will crush, kill and destroy anything that stands in the way of total domination of this planet and its resources... and we'll continue to see ourselves as virtuous.
"We emphasize the great importance of martyrdom operations against the enemy - operations that have inflicted great damage on the United States and Israel, which damage is unprecedented in their history, thanks to Almighty Allah." Sheikh ul-Mujahideen Usama bin Laden (hafidhahullah).
What Are Martyrdom Operations?
Martyrdom Operations - sometimes called Fidayee attacks (see Note 1) - are those where a Muslim, a Mujahid, attacks the enemy in such a way that the death of that Muslim is (should Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) so will it) highly likely. The history of Islam is replete with heroes who have sacrificed their own life for the Way of Life which is Al-Islam.*

If the issue, or problem if you will, were so blatantly obvious why wouldn't the masses all come together? If the truth or corruption were in the open I would like to believe my peers would agree with me. I understand the civil war divided families and friends, however, I would like to believe that we have seen the horrors of war and wish not to become involved in it once again.edit on 26-4-2012 by Covertblack because: added a ?

...so regardless if the people were to take a violent stand, the end result will still have a bitter taste in the mouth of someone and the end result may be a case of leaping out of the pan and into the fire.

I think it will happen whether we want it to or not. Some person who will likely be forgotten by history will challenge the right thing at the right time, and it will catch on. It will likely even start as a simple symbolic protest, but as soon as that symbolic protest is used to send a symbolic message to any symbolic supporters, the symbol will be used to justify terrible actions.
Decades later, the initial person's name will be changed, and he or she will be made into a giant who can shoot fireballs out of his or her fingers, but the reality of it will likely be much more forgettable, and less... dramatized for television. It may have already happened... and it just hasn't caught on yet.
I don't know if you can feel it... but there's a general mood to the populace these days. Not a good one, but a frustrated one. Frustration is always dangerous. It can't be held back forever.
To quote Jeff Goldblum "Nature... uh... uh... finds a way."

I will probably have some doubts about the initial person's true motives, though, because the powers are literally itching for an uprising so they can put it down by their favored methods. And that could be a factor in the shortage of heroes stepping up to take the credit/blame.
