Where do you think that power lay Hawk ? I do have some ideas I've been holding back.

I think a lot of people like us would agree the power is within us and of course with the unity of a majority of people our power becomes useful even if a minority wields it with the backing of the majority. This is how the revolutionary war was won. Only 3% fought but the majority sentiment was with them and supported them and this carried them to victory against seemingly impossible odds. I am not suggesting a hot revolution however the principle is the same. I think what needs to happen is a small group needs to set an example that others can see and this will eventually unify a majority of people. For example if a small but large enough group all moved to a county and took over the leadership positions of that county and showed a better way to live and used the County Sheriff to lawfully keep the feds and even the state at bay when they overstepped their lawful bounds. Built a sustainable society, embraced new and old but updated technologies, like 3D printers and decentralized open source manufacturing, aquaponics and greenhouse technology minimizing imported foods, alternative energy and fuels like ethanol and bio-diesel wood gas/gasification and methane, Solar wind and hydro power, and of course dive into researching and developing over-unity devices etc. once others saw a reasonable amount of success of such a place they would want to join it or emulate it. I have a vision on this and have started writing a book on it. I hope to spread it far and wide eventually and at the very least plant the seed if not initiate it myself with others willing to take action.. Someone has got to set the example. Would love to hear your ideas? Would love to start a master mind group of people to kick these ideas around and brainstorm etc...
