You don't really want chaos.
I don't. Life is going great for me. Moving to Miami with my wife. Huge job offer that I accepted... I hope for no chaos and I hope you don't
want it either
I appreciate your sane attitude, and glad you wrote this-- not just for its own sake, but also that I think it illustrates what a polarized society
we've become. The well-to-do rarely want the boat rocked too hard. That's just how it is when you've got something to lose. Do understand, however,
that you may be one of the more fortunate ones in our society. There are many people out there who survive on $1500-$1000 / month or less.... and by
"many" I mean "millions." Many of those people would probably cheer if there were a revolution tomorrow. Living check to piddly check and having
few prospects of escape has a way of doing that to a person.
Meanwhile many others live very comfortable lives-- never having to want for anything, or having to worry they might end up in a position of severe
struggle and suffering (like those other millions of people). Of course there are varying degrees of this, just as there are varying degrees of being
poor and struggling. But the gap seems to be widening.
The less you have, the more you possibly stand to gain by massive societal upheaval and change, it would seem. And vice versa.
Maybe if corporatism hadn't been allowed to run amok-- if "they" hadn't been allowed to stack the deck so heavily in favor of those who were
already affluent, and against those at the bottom of the totem pole, we wouldn't find ourselves in this situation.
Despite being one of those who feels "stacked against" I too hope we can find a peaceful resolution that will be beneficial to all
VERY well said william, I couldn't agree more. Tons of people are resisting any change because they are on the side that benefits from this
controlled financial and social demolition we are seeing. These people are sadly the minority and will be the least comfortable if/when that chaos
I work in a middle class technology field that either shipped most it's jobs overseas, or is now paying lower class wages now, with no benefits in a
country with dwindling rights and forced mediocre healthcare.
Many have made very rational and valid points: if Anon was real and not a alphabet program then why haven't they hacked bank accounts, mortgages,
student loans, and medical files and erased some struggling people's debt?? That IMO would get TONS of people behind them, and rally some major
support. I'm not trying to downplay the importance of many of the documents that have surfaced thanks to Assange and others similar to Anon, but it
sometimes appears to me to be driving an agenda to allow government to have the kill switch... even though it's presented to us like the exact
"We are here to help your rights and wake you up, blah blah, and we do not want them to turn off our precious interwebs, yet everything we are doing
is SCREAMING at them to do just that"
The only point about the video I will agree with fully is the concept of a game you can only win by simply not playing. It seems like the current
gov/financial system in this world is one that can only be won if the majority turn on a dime and just stop playing. Illogical or not I like to
visualize this outcome.
