Hey Guys and Gals,
I am here to talk to you about the revolution that will most likely start hitting a lot more nations in the coming years. First before I begin I would
like to bring up the definition of revolution because some people may think violence or physical fighting like in Libya and Tunisia.
A revolution (from the Latin revolutio, "a turn around") is a fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a
relatively short period of time. Its use to refer to political change dates from the scientific revolution occasioned by Copernicus' famous De
Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium.[a] Aristotle described two types of political revolution:
1. Complete change from one constitution to another
2. Modification of an existing constitution.
A revolution doesn't mean it has to be violent but it does means change by any means. A change won't happen to the constitution but a change in the
ways that altered the constitution for the benefit of the government and their cronies.
The revolution that is happening around the world is going to cause a ripple affect all around the globe. I don't mean just oil prices or the stock
market, I am talking about food prices and perhaps a revolution here in North America. I am mostly going to stick to America, even though I am from
Canada, because what happens in America will eventually hit us here.
I thought to myself...why on Earth would America, Canada, and Europe want to revolt? Don't we live happy lives and have freedoms that other
There will come a time in everyone's life when we get sick of trying to get ahead because we find out that we are on a treadmill and the past 4 miles
were non-existent. We think we live in a "free" nation only we are not free, I don't even know where people get that idea! We have more freedom
than other nations but we are not free. We are born and live to abide by the rules that are set by society but now society doesn't really set the
rules anymore because the government does.
People influence the government to set legislation but one little guy will virtually have no effect on congress. Every other person is taught to think
of their own lives and not to worry about what your neighbour is doing. Well your neighbour will help you fight your war if you help fight his. Even
congress works like that so why can't we do the same? In congress they have a you scratch my back and I scratch yours type of policy. Us civilians
have a don't bother me and I won't bother you type of policy.
We are born to a society that keeps us in debt all the time. You want that house? Credit. You want that car? Credit. You want those speakers,
television, and game console? Credit. Your nation wants arsenal? Credit. You want social security? Credit. Opening a business? Credit. Well you get my
Not many people actually save to buy any of those things anymore. We are encouraged to spend money that we won't have until the next paycheck but by
that time you forgot your bills come in on that date. And so you get stuck in the same rut trying to dig yourself out of the hole.
People are starting to get sick of being in debt and not having money to afford a decent vacation with the family. They are sick of paying the
interest rate on the mortgage which ends up costing roughly the same as the house.
So why did countries like Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya start their revolution? Why did they wait so long to even start a revolution?
The media will have you believe that they had an uprising because they don't want tyrants and want to live free. B/S, this happened because the gap
between the rich and the poor was unbearable anymore. Those people had no more food and no more clean water. The living standards were terrible and
people couldn't feed their families and became sick of it. History has shown that when prices of food, water, and living goes up people get angry.
The tipping point is usually seeing an unfair distribution of the wealth between the rich and the poor.
So why am I posting all of this?
Well I seen a nice little article on Yahoo which showed the gap in America between the rich and poor became very wide within the last 30 year span.
This coupled with the increase in food prices, electricity, natural disasters, the debt, the uncontrolled government spending, 3 failed wars, the
lies, the deception of the mainstream media, and the internet revolution is a brew for a social change.
Here are new graphs depicting the gap increase:
It took me a couple of looks to understand it but basically the top right are the richest going all the way down.
I found this one particularly interesting because it shows the vast increase in the wealth within the last 7 years.
Kind of funny seeing that the population is going down while the rich are going up. It is kind of ironic too that the rich started going back up after
9/11 and the poor started going down even more.
The original article comes from MOther Jones
If you go to their web-site it has some very interesting graphs such as the richest political representatives, number one being Darrell Issa worth
In conclusion, I think the time for a revolution is ripe. Many people are living paycheck to paycheck and they are having a hard time paying for their
houses, food, energy, pills, and they can't even afford a vacation to blow off the steam!
People can only be ignorant for so long before the turmoil bites them in the back. Schools are failing, hospitals are ridiculously priced, there is
corruption everywhere, the government and banksters have their hand in our pockets, and we are slowly being poisoned to death!
Now tell me do you smell a revolution or what?!
