“You can resist an invading army; you cannot resist an idea whose time has come.”
To all you naysayers, reactionaries, counter revolutionaries and defenders of the status quo: you stand on the wrong side of history and you are going to lose this time. You and the people who you represent have driven us into a corner. We have no option but to come at you...and so we will. We will do so peacefully and in ever increasing numbers...and this time we shall overcome.
Things have to be made more equitable. Some have become very good at the game of gangster capitalism. Problem is that game is rigged, and it never cared about the biosphere or humanity, only with the zero sum game, who wins who loses. It was never a good game and it has led us way too far down a bad road. We've got to fix it.
The revolution in the 60s should have succeeded. If it had we would be much closer than we are to having a sustainable and healthy biosphere, and everything else: Universal healthcare, economic and social justice, laws that apply to everyone – all the things that we all deserve. But they shot four of us in Ohio and we buckled. This time we won't. This time we have too much to lose. We can't turn back, there's no place to go. We don't have the option of withdrawing and hiding unless we are truly prepared to kiss humanity goodbye. If the opposition wins this time, we all lose.
Our misery is great, our ire is profound. We cannot afford to continue to allow the sociopaths to run our government or our society. We need to live reasonable, principled lives and we need anyone who would presume to be a leader to do the same.
For those who still don't get it, read up at MinistryofTruth's rec-listed post.
To win we have to do two things: we have to remain peaceful and we have to remain resolute.
