    Revolution, through the Amendment process.

    Getting an Amendment to publicly Financed Campaigns,

    would be a great place to start.

    Next an Amendment against corporately financed Lobbyists,

    might one day put We the People, back in charge.

    But I pretty much adhere to the Beatles philosophy on the topic of Revolution, myself:

    War is the problem, not the solution.

    What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
    -- Maslow ...... my list.

      the Constitution, necessarily, at least somewhat, as long as that was done in a genuinely democratic manner.

      But that will not be materially feasible until the right has been much more substantially purged and suppressed, heh.

      With sufficient progressive/liberal/moderate Democratic plurality in the House and Senate, Not rotten with Blue Dog ilk, it would be relatively easy to enact some fairly modest electoral, campaign finance and media reforms, legislatively, to allow the emergence of a much more viable democracy, from which could flow all manner of more substantial and fundamental changes.

      Meanwhile, we could roll out the new green paradigm all the way, put everyone back to work, bring home the troops, have homes, pensions, health care, education, etc.

      And did I mention?  Actually really prosecute monopoly corporate fascist traitors to humanity.

      Democracy is the most fundamental revolutionary principle.
