Our nation has all the resources we need to sustain our lifestyle and then some, there is no reason why good people are struggling to make a living because our government has screwed us over so far that no matter how hard we work we were destined to fail. There is no reason why we have an abundance of food that there are people starving everyday. There is no reason that the rich are allowed to live like kings, when the wealth can be shared.
I propose we change the way we view our lives, we do not need to spend our entire lives slaving just to pay for the essentials, while the spoils from our labors are funneled up to the top tier of our nation.
I'm against individualism and every one working towards their own goals, because I feel this is what allows the blinders to be placed and the corruption to be set. As I've stated, if you're focused on your survival, you're not concerning yourself with the atrocities being committed in your name.
what i am trying to convey is nothing from my individual life, what I am trying to convey is the advancement of our entire race. we need to evolve, a species evolution coincides with the evolution of its society, and if it does not evolve, we will devolve.
the reason why corporations are so successful is because they promote the importance of team work. A corporation will not succeed if everyone is not working towards the goals of company. yet in our society, instead of formulating and striving towards achievable goals, we promote a system where you are working on your own and the success and failures you meet are yours alone. this system is doomed to failure, no corporation will achieve success under such a mode of operation.
Where was my success or failure ever brought up? success to me is not decided by the amount of cash I have in my bank account, it's is summed up for me in the lives that i'm able to impact and the experiences i'm am lucky to have.
The majority of the American people are forced to work jobs they despise their entire lives to make a living, this is how we are enslaved. We must work to live, that is acceptable apparently, we don't like it, but we need to eat. That's just how they WANT it to be. If you are so focused on fending for you and your own, then everything else will ALWAYS come in second, this allow them to feed us the lies of freedom and democracy
I never stated that free will is lost, you are losing something in the translation
thanks for conversing with me regardless
I feel I've strengthened my position and my resolve, I may have done the same for you as well on yours.

thanks for the response frazzle.
I may have jumped the gun a little on the call to arms, but I do believe the time is soon. I think I wanted more to set the tone for the need of change our nation and our society is facing.
that being said, i don't even believe that a true revolution needs to take up arms against their government, i believe if the people feel strongly enough that a change is in order for the society, then the government will have to face facts. But that type of revolution needs to be an unshakable and strongheaded resolve that will show the willingness to take up arms if change is not properly addressed
Me? I'm for the peaceful kind of revolution where all of the states simply walk away from the madness and set up whatever kind of governments they can support in their own states or regions.
