Michael Moore rocks

Americans should read this. Understand that you are not living in a democratic country. You are living in a fascist plutocracy. You have very little in the way or rights or freedoms, although you do have plenty of illusionary freedoms (so as to keep you proudly buying high-fat food and pouring gas into your SUVs I suppose). I say this not to point out our collective faults; I say this to remind you that things are going downhill quickly.

What can you do? Let's start with two real simple things:

  • Support small businesses across the board — that means shopping at stores owned by people inside your community (not big stores). It also means supporting smaller organic farms — if you are in a smaller town, buy from the farmer's market directly. It means going to see bands when they tour, and buying their CDs and shirts at the concert.
  • Never borrow money. By borrowing money you enslave yourself to the state and to the banks and to the system in general. If you can't afford something, either make it yourself, or choose a less expensive option, or wait. In many cases you can barter things you no longer need, or work, for items, and circumvent money altogether.

Those are two very little things, and they're easy. They're not particularly radical, and you don't have to be a black flag waving anarchist to do them. There are thousands more, but if people consciously did only the two things above, the face of the West would change dramatically.

Again, I am not saying America is a bad place. I'm saying that there are evil people illegally in power who are using the average citizen to further their personal wealthy indulgance. These are people who not only put themselves in power illegally, but who were complicit in killing nearly 5000 Americans on September 11th, and then somehow escaped blame (if you missed the links on this, click here). Now they're talking about taking even more money from the average citizen for “defense”, and asking ALL young people to serve two years of “Universal Service” after highschool.

If you live in a Western country but are patting yourself on the back because you don't live in America, don't be so hasty… America may be on the cutting edge of wealthy corruption, but it is by no means unique. The entire West is going downhill, and the governments aren't helping. Private citizens can and must stop this process.

I'm not telling you to protest or revolt or declare war on the state. Personally I don't think that acheives anything, and “they” are far more powerful than “us”, and, overall, control the media — and, more importantly, have the legal authority to shoot and kill you should you break their laws. Don't declare war on them — they will win. Subvert their system, and use it to our mutual advantage. Make power valueless.

Of course, that's when they declare war on us.

Oh, wait, that already happened.

    those are big word but if everyone could just focus on the bryant case and bring it into a focus such that there is no them and us albeit the system will play it that way unless you can “all together now”

    The guy is only 7-8 years older than you shannon

    it works for me because a part of me is with each horse in the race

    wow – I didn’t say that was about michael bryant – I just can’t see how Toronto the good can be popping off about the rest of the world with that incident in her back yard – sort of like what happened to bme – in the final – you’re just people – that is what I took away from it – no real difference – maybe it is just DNA and Destiny
