Idunno, bit too idealistic for me. In practical terms we need to just get government working again. Once you start talking about crazy schemes, the public just shuts off and dismisses it all. Let's not blow our chance here. We can achieve something. Maybe not all our dreams but ... something anyway, and that's better than nothing.

Well, one thing I can tell you is that platitudes aren't going to solve anything ...

If you want to go that far with your anarchic philosophy then I suggest you start using violence to get rid of the establishment. I strongly urge you to do so, get some followers and start crushing the establishment. This is our government after all, right?

In the new era (the era of Truth, and the government of the People), the government should have other powers - the executive.

The People must create a state program, which government will must be realize.

I mean - this movement (OWS) in the projections of the future. We need to unite regardless of nationality, or something else.

Until people learn to take matters into their own hands, they will need government to do their skull-cracking for them.

That will not be forever, but it is for now.

If you can somehow imagine in your mind that 7B people surviving on limited space and resources do not need any form of government you are probably dreaming.

Just how many people do you invision living in your "not forever" world peacefully and not needing government.

Somehow, I recall that there was some "skull-cracking" going on during the times of the "iceman" and there weren't very many people on earth at that time compared to today.

I'm not here to paint rosy pictures about the realities of life-on-earth; just because I may not like the truth does not mean I would deny it.

"Learning to take matters into your own hands" doesn't mean doing whatever you want.

It means doing what you are willing to face the consequences for, and vice versa.

A government derives its JUST powers from the consent of the governed. - Declaration of Independence -

as if your living in the past it's not 1776 We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal Read it again all men now are judged on how rich they are if that's equality than I'm an astronaut

true in 1776 and true today

Congress approval rating 9% - very little consent of the governed

I think instead of blindly following one entire movement like a bunch of sheep, we each stand up and think individually for ourselves. You might notice that with just a little prayer and meditation you will receive 'downloads' and your eyes will become open to know what you personally must do. Each and every one of us of plays a very important part in this game of life and the battle between good and evil.

But don't listen to anything I, or anyone else has to say...think for yourself and question authority.

could be seems when more than one mind gets together everything gets confused, perpetrated, perverted, disoriented, scrutinized, etc etc I have been single all my life I'm 53 and if I were the only person on this planet I would get along just fine no kidding

That I would like to see, but from some other world. It ain't going to be very pretty down here.

[-] 0 points by eyeofthetiger (304) 2 years ago

well I can say that people are now following the beat of they're own drummer for sure

It is sorta like what would happen if the snare drummers in the marching band all played a different cadence while going down the street at Macy's Parade.

But, that is what we got here.
