People in the comments wishing for a new revolution should never forget this one fact, you know, in case a new one does occur so we don't **** it up again:
"Through revolution, the abandonment of personal despotism may be engendered and the end of profit -seeking and domineering opression may occur, but never a true reform of the state of mind. Instead, new prejudices, just like the old ones, will serve as the guiding reins of the great, unthinking mass."

The man is right, even during a lifetime that witnessed the American revolution and all of its optimistic promise, as well as the French revolution, he still knew how it would turn out. People talk about revolution, but they don't realize that humans are sheep by nature.
You see groups on facebook about this, usually depicting the Guy Fawkes/"anonymous" style, calling themselves "truth seekers" and warning about Big Pharma and Illuminati. But when you try to argue a scientific point, then apparently you must be either one of the brainwashed sheep or your being paid by corporations, so they discard everything you say whilst linking you to the same sensationalist fear mongering NaturalNews articles as their sources, unaware that the site exists solely to sell them products. Two groups have even blocked me from commenting, because I pointed out misinformation, on pages made to bitch about government's supposed oppression of free speech and choice.

tl;dr - New prejudices will always rise in place of the old, even for anti-corporation and humanistic movements. And subsequent generations will inevitably breed oppression.

Right.... old **** face who suggested policies that had never worked for a country with a population over 3 million. He didn't even know what he was talking about half of the time. He wanted to cut taxes into oblivion and turn us into mexico with white people

You know anything we do to change the government will only result in an equal or worse government, and honestly we could do a lot worse than the one we have now so really what's the point, I'm sure you can find better stuff to do.    
   
<-- How I feel towards the current government

a few years ago i would have considered italy to be a country whose government wasn't acceptable since berlusconi is involved in pretty much every big media company in italy and the mafia (not directly but nearly everything in italy is somehow linked to the mafia)

If you are fighting, your generation is already making the change. It won't be one day, it's already happening. Your description is retarded.

Okay, this is going to be long and stupid and no one will care. But i feel the need to say it. I want to be a revolutionary. Like no joke. I want to incite a revolution. I want to change the world. I don't care if I'm not the next Che Guevara. i just can't stand to see the world as this horrible place. Things need to change, and i want to be the one to do it.

TL;DR: Viva La Revolucion
#31 to #29 - tyroneisanigger (03/09/2013) [-]

I've been scheming and planning my whole life. It seems very impossible but I'd love to take the revolution route. Only problem is that things have to get bad enough to spark civil war at least. But the powers that be have done very good to pain an illusion.

#129 to #42 - presentdent (03/10/2013) [-]
How could you ever -want- a Civil War you mad man? Innocent people are killed in Civil Wars. Families are torn apart in Civil Wars. What is wrong with you?
User avatar #131 to #129 - infinitereaper (03/10/2013) [-]
You misunderstand what I meant.

I meant that no one is going to back a revolution in the U.S. today.

Things have to get bad enough to cause civil unrest; only then could there be a viva la revolution.

The poeple re too content and clueless right now, like cows being led to a slaughterhosue.
User avatar #64 to #29 - noopis (03/09/2013) [-]
I feel the same way. The ****** part is that I know if I try I'll be alone. People know that **** is ****** up, they know what the problems are, but none of them give a single **** , as long as they have their cheeseburgers and Facebooks they're satisfied. I feel like I'm watching a bunch of people light themselves on fire and I can't do anything to stop it. We're lazy, we don't stand up for ourselves until **** gets really bad, we tried with the Occupy Movement but that quickly lost all meaning, we fizzle out too quick. But still I wanna wage war on all the major corporations even though I know that it's pointless.

Look man, i'm all for what you're saying. No joking at all. But I just want you to know that I hope you're not the next che guevara. He killed many of his own countrymen to make a point to his government. Albeit that it was corrupt as **** ans his intentions were noble, he sent a lot of young people to an early grave, starved his people, and raided villages to aid his cause. I think what you have in mind is fantastic, but what i'm trying to say is is that che had to make quite a few sacrifices to do what he did, even watch a piece of his own humanity die.
#128 to #70 - presentdent (03/10/2013) [-]
If you're going to emulate a *********** communist, at least emulate one that was honest about his need for power and money. Be the next Stalin. Bonaparte all over your revolutionary brothers until all the idealists are ice-picked and you get to live comfortably. Or else someone will do it to you. (I would have put this in my first reply but I forgot. >.>)
#127 to #70 - presentdent (03/10/2013) [-]
His intentions weren't all that noble. His first decision when they had the triumphant decision into Havana was which mansion to take for himself. He picked the one that had the fancy television.

I want to do that for Russia. America isn't doing badly at all. No, really. Seriously. America has it really damn easy compared to a lot of places I've lived in. I want to be a revolutionary for Russia, because the way things are going right now, Russia's like North Korea. Only much bigger, more populous, and with the largest nuclear stockpile in the world. It is volatile as **** right now.
User avatar #47 to #32 - biggydy (03/09/2013) [-]
Maybe people in America isn't doing bad, but i'd die to change the "we can do what we want to other countries" politics the USA have. Your country is having problems? We don't care. Your country is having problems and you have oil? SEND ALL THE ARMY WE'RE GONNA FREE THEM, EVEN IF THEY DON'T NEED OUR HELP.
#130 to #47 - presentdent (03/10/2013) [-]
You would die to change how the United States treats other countries? Why? Because it doesn't seem 'right'? Well, **** , brother, let me tell you something, there is rarely a 'right and wrong' in Foreign Policy, it's all about doing everything possible to keep your own country as powerful as possible and protect your people. As for the "we only wage war for oil" argument, please cite me an example of fighting for oil and I'll cite you an example of defending our people or our allies. WW1, WW2, Korean War, Vietnam War, the Tripolitan War, The War of 1812, the Battle of Mogadishu, the current War in Afghanistan. And you know what? All of those wars had an economic basis too. Hell, the Tripolitan War had the noble result of crushing the Barbary Corsairs, but it was still basically a defense of our trade in the Atlantic/Mediterranean. So to be willing to die because we allow economics to influence our wars is just... stupid.

Che Guevara was a monster that oversaw failed revolutions in Africa and Latin America and the executions of women and children in Cuba. If you're going to pick a revolutionary to aspire to, at least don't pick the ****** pop-culture one... That's like saying you want to be a rapper and that you aspire to be as good as Lil Wayne... or **** ... that guy that made the Superman song that was popular a couple years back. You know who 'won' at being a revolutionary? Napoleon. Became a god damned Emperor. Aspire to be like Napoleon. Or Caesar. Worshipped as a God.
User avatar #132 to #75 - fukkenname (03/10/2013) [-]
I get what you're saying. Che Guevara wasn't the best example. But with Napolean and Caesar, they did become Gods. And i don't want that. A reveloution should be for the people, not to instill a new tyrant. 'People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.” - V for Vendetta
#135 to #132 - presentdent (03/10/2013) [-]
Guy Fawkes was a terrorist fighting for a return to Catholic uniformity and was in favor of oppressing freedom of religion. This isn't to say the Puritans he was trying to kill were any better, but Guy Fawkes is -also- a crap example. (Though V for Vendetta was a wonderful movie). It's hard to pick a revolutionary though. All the "idealists" get killed or were far too radical to be likeable. And the successful revolutionaries all became tyrants. If you really want to pick someone... aspire to be like George Washington (not the native-slaughtering part) or maybe Paul Revere? John Paul Jones? Benjamin Franklin?

Or you could vote for the parties that have no chance.
Or blank.

Voting blank is a much better way of saying that you dislike the political climate than not voting, since it can't be interpreted as being lazy.

User avatar #108 to #102 - pandation (03/09/2013) [-]
Wouldn't that rather be shifting power into those who are responsible for selecting who is also qualified? Like UberAndrew said, a Janitor is by no means qualified but that doesn't mean there aren't qualified people who don't want power out there. But that would also lead to someone being manipulated. A decent hearted politician is just far too much to ask for these days

The problem is Politics is showbizz for Ugly Boring people who cant get that kind of attention on their personality , own skills or abilities.

and because politics is so boring you have the cretins of society (Generally, always gonna be some who arent) as the ones who end up going into it.

At school the people who were into politics were the weird ugly boring kids who were all friends with each other because they all had being weird ugly boring and disliked by everyone else in common with each other.

And because you have the people at school who never had a proper life trying to tell others how to life theirs it just doesnt work. They also have been craving all this power and attension all their lifes because they dont have personalities or any skills as soon as they get this power and recognition it just goes straight to their head .

you just have the wrong kind of people getting into the politics in general

So it's somehow a conspiracy theory that a few rich interest groups manipulate and buy politicians, use their privately owned media which is legally allowed to lie, to warp perceptions and create a system in which there are mutual benefits for all said campaign sponsors? Have you ever heard of a Super PAC? You live in a corrupted system and anything besides acknowledging that is lunacy. It's not a conspiracy, the sad thing is they do it right in your ******* face and the American public gobbles it up. If they didn't, it wouldn't work.

I would honestly like someone to bring back our soldiers home, give them jobs as like police officers and whatever. Allow anybody to film/record a police officer when they are questioned and the police officer must have like a small camera or whatever that would be running 24/7 everyday and charged when his shift is over. If a police officer is found abusing his power he won't be able to work forever as a police agent and will be set in jail for [insert double digit number for amount of years]. And do something about the drug traffic.

I'm not a conspiracy nut, I recon there's probably real reasons for some of the goofy rules and regulations out there. I think we should legalise everything, peel away the warning labels on cleaning products, just let the problems sort themselves out. Maybe make a reality TV show about it...
