Its catch 22 really. Sure you can blame people for not doing anything, and yes, we are to blame for not doing anything while we had the chance. But we
passed the point of no return long before I, or even my parents were born. (I personally believe this was in the 60's and the hippy movement was our
last chance, and that was defeated by TPTB introducing drugs to them, but thats another topic).
But, as I just said on my previous reply to someone else, nobody really wants to go to war, those who do are in the military and would likely be the
ones we would have to fight against as they protect and serve their corporate masters. Most people know deep down that is the only way out of this
system now, and can you blame them for not wanting to live in a war zone?
We are not in a democracy, protesting never works unless it suits the governments agenda, and they "listen" to protestors to maintain the illusion
of democracy. We have come a long way since the days of Ghandi, his tactics were radical and new and the government had no real response to them. But
they have learned now. TPTB have all the money and resources at their disposal to eliminate every substantial threat to them. We do not live in a
movie where some underdog can take on the raging beast. This is real life, and people have families to take care of. Yes you could argue that they are
doing their families more harm than good by staying apathetic and not changing things for them, but on the other hand, we live in a society that is
relatively safe and peaceful, we have food, we have social security, we have healthcare. Is it really all that bad?
