I'm with you, my brother! Unfettered free enterprise gives us poison toothpaste, autos that tip over and kill families, tires that shred at speed and kill state troopers, and other atrocities!.

We'll never have a government that represents the people as long as people like McCain take $500,000,000 from the oil companies to switch his message from "Oil is destroying our world" to "Drill, Baby, Drill" (sometimes translated as 'Sieg Heil!') !.

Workers of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles!Www@QuestionHome@Com

I would ask you to think forward!.!.!.

And then what!?

Because (for some reason) every revolution ends up with repalcing a mild regime with a harsh one!. So instead of gaining freedom- you will lose it!.
What is more any revolutionnary will be seen by the new masters as a potential threat (he made the revolt once- so he may do it again) and eliminated!. Permanently!. Probably with the whole family!.

End effect is a de-facto kingdom (like North Korea) masquerading as a "peoples democracy"- in which 90% of the population are slaves and the 10% are slave masters!. And people die for a word!.

If that is what you want to achieve- then I would oppose you!. I lived most of my life under "socialism" and (while I agree that capitalism is no heaven) I'd rather go down fighting then try that system again!.

In my country (Poland) we say "think before you jump- and after you've jumped check what you have landed into before cheering"

Freedom!. You can possibly achieve true freedom on a small sailing boat!. Then you are alone and dependent only on yourself (also pirates, weather, passing ships and sharks- but let's not bother with minor details)!. On land you will always interact with people- and your freedom will therefore be limited!.

AS to revolution- think of the Anarchists during the Spanish Civil war!. They wanted "freedom" - but paradoxically were the most strictly disciplined group in the Republican side!. And also they were the first to be exterminated by their allies (communists) when it looked like they were no longer needed as "cannon fodder"

So again- watch where you land!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

>I would never lead but i would follow the man

>are you gonna be the sheep

>assuming my role

That is just exchanging one leader for another, you are still a sheep – that is not revolution – you are not ready for revolution!. Power is the answer, without power how can freedom of thought and freewill exist!?

Look at the lyrics of Revolution to understand the “Alright” reference!.

>my role is my thought and that is to myself the one thing that nobody else can have

You say you want a revolution!?
Well you know, we all want to change the world!.

You tell me it's the institution!?
Well you know, you better free your mind instead

But if you want money for people with minds that hate,
all I can tell you is, "Brother, you'll have to wait"Www@QuestionHome@Com
