Be wary and avoid anyone calling for a violent overthrow of government. It's just not necessary, non violent methods and tactics have been proven to
work just fine and have prevented the use of higher levels of violence in response (you don't bomb unarmed protestors in front of news cameras, even
the worst dictators hesitate to do so and if they do the response is often a UN or NATO campaign against you).
We have a system in the US and can still work within it. The main problem keeping real change from happening is a lack of a coherent, planned
alternative. People scream for change but it's always one issue at a time rather than addressing systematic corruption.
What we need are true visionaries, qualified intellectuals and educators to draw up a framework of reforms to address the corruption and stasis
pervading our system. Things like term limits for all offices, anti influence peddling regulations, tax reforms like a sales tax based flat tax
without all the fun and games the current power structure wants to latch onto it, court appointment reforms, etc. We need a well planned out set of
changes. With this and a signed pledge by a new party to implement it we could change our system overnight using the election system, for example. If
there are indications this is interfered with illegally the next step would be peaceful protest and general strikes - tools which have caused entire
governments to resign in other countries.
The remedies against tyranny are not a short cut. They are to be used only after the tools of peaceful change built into our system are exhausted and
then only if prevented by illegal interference. A bored public unwilling to participate does not count and such a populace will get exactly the amount
of tyranny they allow, no more and no less.
I can understand your comment but honestly I cannot understand the stars given to it. In theory what you say is so nice, peaceful, righteous...as are
sayings like, love each other (while we kill, hate and murder each other), be nice and respect someone else right of...(while we do the opposite, we
hate, we don't tolerate, we're disrespectful), government is by the people, to the people, for the people (while government even though is made up
by people doesn't give a rats @ss for the people), love nature (we destroy nature), love animals (with other actions every days a species goes
extinct)...etc. I mean, in theory all this things are so nice, so loving, so kind...I can go on forever on the amazing nature of how nice things can
be done. But can they? Follow our history as humans. Tell me one occasion when oppressive governments or social systems have come to change
peacefully? Tell me only one example and seriously I'll rest my case. You are deluded to have a system in US and especially working with it. US has
been taken over by corporations, big pharma and military complex. US has been taken over by Federal Reserve and other money grabbing sharks who know
and understand only one language to step down or even better, hide and disappear: That of the gun in their temple (as for the temple in the head.
That's for illiterates). Great changes require great measures and actions, sacrifices and dedication. In a more popular vocabulary, a very big set of
balls. Pacifists and lecturers of smooth acting, by the book and in accordance with the rules set by the rulers, are just the worst crowd in a reality
that screams for change. Keep that in mind, there is no tyranny in history, ever, who has come down with flowers, understanding, banners that say
Love, Peace, Kindness...There is only one way and unless people start to understand that and be part of that mentality, talking is always going to be
