We all know the score,. although some play dumb. Ignorance is perhaps bliss, however reality still holds sway.

1% of the people on this rock claim ownership of most everything!

99% live on a fraction of our actual share of the wealth of our common planet. Wars are used by the few to confound the many, while they rob them blind. Taxation is used under corrupted governments to punish, and redistribute wealth from the many to the few. Bankers always getting their cut,. compounded with interest, on top of interest.., and fees., a wealth transfer machine they have created!

We know we can do better than the sht system our parents left us; disused,. rusty, and just plain broken.

Real democracy,. more direct. All voices equal, no elected proxy representatives. General Assemblies, local, regional, national, global,. with full net based participation. structured and moderated forums of debate and voting,. (perhaps even room for troll farms) . change a vote at any time. No four year terms,. no individual to corrupt. Secure voting by public voting,. all votes published in real time., convince your friends and neighbours to change their votes. votes are only on issues not politicians or parties,.

We can devise a much better system, as we now know more than we ever have,. we are networked world wide, and locally. We can change,. we must. The current path is to extinction,. so if you are not suicidal,. you really need to wake up, pay attention to what is going on,. and follow your hart. Think about the children, the future generations.

Global Safe is designed as a technical solution to bring about the revolution you are talking about.

interesting,. thanks for the link.

I do like some of the ideas for banking and direct issue voting,. although the laser tunneling, and other techno-fetishism stuff seems to loose them some credibility, with me anyway. I will now be watching the progress with this. thanks again.

Forget revolutions. Revolutions create civil wars and death, and never end well.

The only solution is that we create our own Parallel Economy (Cooperative Economy).

How is that not a form of revolution?

Economic revolution perhaps, but revolution none the less.

that sounds revolutionary to me,. maybe a joyful rebellion then?

a parallel economy is a good idea,. as well as a parallel democracy. Just supplant the old ways,. with better functional systems.

There is no need for wars and death to bring revolutionary change to the world,. in fact the change I aim to see would end all wars.

Yes.

Stop depositing your money in private banks, and put all your money in a National Cooperative Bank.

Stop working in private companies, and start a new workers' cooperative with your fellows. The National Cooperative Bank will provide the credit lines to the new cooperatives.

Stop purchasing stuff from Walmart. Only buy stuff from Coop-Mart, a nationwide network of cooperative supermarkets.

Substitute private property by Cooperative property without shooting a single bullet. Just don't buy anything from the private corporations, only from the Cooperatives.

yes, all tactics that work are valid,. choices that are already ours should be used wisely.

Agreed, so perhaps you would consider our group's proposal of an alternative online direct democracy of government and business at http://getsatisfaction.com/americanselect/topics/on_strategically_weighted_policies_organizational_operating_structures_tactical_investment_procedures-448eo , for this is a small-business-bottom-up approach, not today's big-business-top-down approach, so if agreed, join our group's 20 members committed to that plan at http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/StrategicInternationalSystems/

Exactly! Why not come together through Intelligent means of Capital Creation where we can financially free ourselves from the system that wasn't built for us to begin with? Then we can create what we want for ourselves and our families. We have to become the solution we are looking for.
