I take my stand every day. I protect my loved ones. I help my neighbor (metaphorically and literally). I set an example for my son to see, and pass
that down. I need no followers, just a faith that by doing the best I can, on any given day, it inspires others to do the same. Not all stands are
violent conquests. TPTB are only defeated when we take back control of our lives. I have control of mine.
Money doesn't rule me, though we do use it as a tool to provide things that elsewise would force me to barter on levels I simply don't have the
resources for. No one can force you into the camp. No one can force you to take that shower. There's always a choice. Making the right one, that's
how one takes a stand.
Though, I too would like to see changes in the system, I am but one person, and can only offer the world the best of which I know. I suppose if this
is "what's the shoving point before you go all nuts on the establishment?" the answer is when they're stupid enough to interfer with my slice of
the pie. So far, I see acts of evil, but me and mine are safe. Is this selfish? A little bit. But I lack the power to do something more. This is
honest. It's a team sport if you wish to bring a revolution to the world (India comes quick to mind. If Egypt wasn't a CIA op, it's a good one too.
I'm still on the fence on that one though). Until then, all you can do is set an example and hope it sticks. My two cents. ^.^
