Pfff. They can't even make a video without Juice Drops. Revolution? Who would they steal it from?
But yeah, I'd love to see their faces when agents rappel into their windows.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
We have a government that is not answerable to the people. It answers to money, and the personal agendas of the people who are supposed to serve us.
So please spare me lectures about my lack of participation. The only way protests do anything is if hundreds of thousands of people get involved, but our country has become fat and stupid, so that's not likely to happen.
what have you done to help exhaust all peaceful & legal options to change this country for the better?
and what would a violent revolution accomplish? kick everyone out of the government, so new folks could take their jobs?
what will you do when those new foks run things just like the old folks?

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Only if the government doesn't respond to massive popular protest should things become violent. But right now, the injustices are climbing. More and more people are being wronged. There are people that even I know who have relatives who have had unjust run-ins with overreaching government powers. It's only a matter of time before it affects you or I - the innocent.
Until now, our government has been skilled at walking the line and not offending the necessary amount of people to spur backlash. But as their addiction to power and crony money grows, they will be less able to keep their tyranny under control. That's when the ball will drop - and that day is coming.
