Forum Post: Trying to commit

The revolution is in my heart. This is something that I have considered since the Arab Spring.....would I be part of the radical change. I am having a hard time deciding to walk away from my crappy retail job.....my "this is all I could afford" apartment and step onto the plaza to stand for what I believe. If I walk away, there will be nothing to come back to. This wouldn't be a problem if this was a long term occupation, but I am worried that as soon as I make the decision to walk away the police will bully the movement enough to disperse it....or something.....

I need some words to help me walk away, because that is what's in my heart but I am paralyzed with fear.

You don't have to attend a protest to help out. Even if all you can do is talk to people about it and raise awareness.

Don't walk away yet. First ask this question; Are you prepared for the coming economic collapse?

If yes, then go ahead go protest. If not, then I suggest you get prepared first. If it doesn't matter then go ahead and go protest, because eventually you have to do what you want.
