Well, here it is. 2014. A new year, new bunch of resolutions that people will fall through on. It happens each year, without fail. At this point if any of us are surprised it is your own fault for believing any of them possible.
More and more, I see new people coming forth with idealistic views towards government, big business, democrats, republicans, gays, races, religions, and pretty much every sort of difference that you can imagine between two people and any sort of reason not to get along. Its mildly disturbing, that so many people are falling into this propagated mindset, but if you want to be led and be sheeple, carry-on. I would propose to you that you stop listening to what every one else is saying, stop marching to the drums of war, and make your own observations. Is the news trust-worthy? Not particularly, but if you can read in between what is being said you might take away a bit of information that ties into something else. However, first you must stop being concerned with such malicious garbage as being concerned with people like Phil Robertson (those of you who may not know, care, or are reading this after this issue has died down; he made a statement in GQ about gays and their inability to get to heaven). Lets put it this way, if they are mentioned in The Enquirer, you should probably not value their opinion unless you want advice on acting or the music industry. Celebrities aren’t politicians, and politicians should never be celebrities. While I’m at it, stop holding celebrities in such high regard in general. There are better people out there to idolize than Lil Wayne.
Regardless of that, the big thing as of late that has really caught my attention has been an influx of groups of would be revolutionaries. As noble as the sentiment is, the concept behind it is ridiculous. When you have to try to drum up support by taping up a print up ad with pull tabs providing a facebook page on the doors of walmart what sort of revolutionaries do you perceive that you are going to draw to your cause? The ones I, and others as well, envision will be drawn to this shallow attempt are a bunch of backwoods, good ol’ boys, that like to drink beer and shoot guns. The bunch that only wants a revolution because of the face value that a black president ran this country to the ground. The bunch that shows up to the group meeting in armored hoverounds. And certainly the ones that have been laughed out of every serious group they may have ever contacted. Honestly though, what these groups actually intend to accomplish is far from possible. What sort of plan do you have? What is your goal? Impeaching the President? If it hasn’t happened yet, your band of miscreants is not likely to make it happen before his term is over. Even if it did happen, and you overthrew the government, what is your plan afterwards? Mass anarchy? That aside, if anyone considered your group that much of a threat, after NDAA has been re-approved, you would just go away. Drop your hook in shallow water, and the best you will get is small fish.
I’ve also had examples given though which inspire hope. A certain few individuals that seem to have the right mindset and outlook. Starting a revolution is short sighted. Surviving the downfall that is likely to eventually happen anyways, that is where your money should be. Guys(neuter) that are out there training to survive. Guys that are out there getting involved with communities. Guys that are planning communities. Guys that are learning valuable skills that a community needs. Those are going to be the ones standing when things finally go south. Stop inciting panic and subversion, and figure out how you can actually make an improvement, instead of blowing smoke and being a keyboard warrior.
All great nations fall in their own time. Where are you going to be when it happens again? Are you going to be ready?
