Now, im not sure if i posted under correct topic so MODS, please move if so.
Recently my cousin and i got into a discussion about democracy. discussion started with him being a Ron Paul supporter and myself responding to it
"F*** politicians, they are politicians for a dam reason. it's a monolithic agenda at the end of the day! democracy doesn't exist!!!". the reason for
such response was because i was annoyed by his kerfuffle about Ron Paul as if he was god!
(i don't mean to vilify so much about Ron, i want to believe in him myself but, after all this hypocrisy through out history can i really fall for
"this trickery once again?". id be a fool if i did, call me cynical but, it's only based on the experience WE'VE been through)
My opinion has drastically changed from the past and haven't been on ATS in quite some time. Iv'e supported paul since the age of 16, i am now 21.
iv'e realized that democracy is just an illusion. "they" want to make you feel as if your opinion really mattered! haha
So as you continue the bickering about pity politics (as i'v'e done in the past), protested (as if so many cared; i supported/attended occupy but not
100% in agreement with them), continue to rant about the negativity in our world (as i am doing right now and which has made my life to be congested
with negativity), continue to write to your congressman, continue to....whatever you do.... IT ISN'T GOING TO DO ANYTHING!
"the problem is im peaceful" - lupe fiasco
"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." -JFK
"violence the tool of change" -Ron Paul
TPTB aren't going to give up too easily.
i don't want to mistaken this thread as to be an influence on violence or anything because i myself HATES violence. i believe that LOVE IS THE
SOLUTION. as ridiculous at that may sound to some, it is true.
Do you really believe in democracy?
what can we do to make this a better world, not just a better country?
why are so many afraid of revolution?
(those last two questions are rhetorical, one that concerns me is the first one)
iv'e lost hope in almost everything! last chunk of hope lies ON THE PEOPLE! you and i; in humanity!
by the way, i am not too good at writing so excuse me being everywhere, im sure most of you understand where im coming from.
