DUmmies Hope Street Revolutions Come To USA
Are We Witnessing the Start of a Global Revolution?
[Posted DUmmie GliderGuider with the great hope it will spread here.]
The tempo of radical change appears to be quickening on all fronts around the world. Food prices are rising in the face of supply limits and the ecological impacts of over-exploitation and climate change. Energy prices are rising in the face of supply limits. The global corporate economy is in tatters, if not ruins. Governments are becoming ever more entrenched in authoritarianism as they face mounting resistance from their citizens.
Out of all great changes come great opportunities. We may be looking at a golden moment for individual citizens around the world to reclaim some measure of sovereignty and control over their lives -- if they are bold enough, or desperate enough, to seize it.
[Don't expect the DUmmies to break away from their pizzas to actually DUAC a revolution in the streets. Their activism would be strictly limited to enthusiastically blogging it from their basements only.]
Wikileaks, Twitter, Facebook... The revolution may not be televised, but it will be all over the Interweb!
[DUmmies are only too happy to BLOG the revolution. Let others actually do it. DUAC! DUAC!]
I think it is more like the Revolutions of 1848 that swept nobles from power...but it is probably too early to see if it goes farther.
["Farther" means Bolshevik Revolution to this DUmmie wannabee Chekhist.]
What happens when the revolution gets Globalized!? This is the beginning...
[Hopes this DUmmie. Of course, after the revolution, who is going to deliver the pizzas that won't be made in the first place?]
I see a World War coming. Maybe a Glopbal Civil War, but I see blood and bodies and I see it breaking out here. If the shit hits the fan, I'm sailing out of here at the first sign even if I have to steal a boat and shoot my way out.
[And go WHERE? The Workers Paradise of North Korea?]
A major theme is that Western governments, including the US, are trying to co-opt these revolutions, introducing 'Democratic' reforms and 'Democratic' governments friendly to Western interests. Will real Democracy emerge? Stay tuned, friends (to Al Jazeera and the alternative internet media).
[A DUmmie who would prefer that Sharia Law would prevail over Western Democracy.]
When the Working Class & The Poor realize we have more in common with each other than we have in common with the Ruling Elite leadership of BOTH political parties, WE can demand real "CHANGE".
[Ranted the Little Bolshevik who is oppressed by pizza on demand in America.]
As long as TPTB can keep us divided with wedge issues, and keep the National Debate between the very narrow frame of Corporate Democrat vs Corporate Republicans, the Status Quo will be maintained. As long as our Political Parties and the Media can brand Obama & Hillary as Liberal, we have no where to go.
[So much for the Little Bolshevik's belief in the Obamassiah. He obviously wants a street revolution to toss him OUT.]
South of the Border is the name of Oliver Stone's newest and I saw it last night. I highly recommend as he interviews Chavez, Morales, Kirchner, Lungo, de Silva, etc. Very well done and inspiring.
[A great work of complete FICTION that flopped at the box office in Venezuela. Yeah, like the people down there would pay to see a movie about the "Glorious Leader" who has caused them incredible economic hardship.]
I pray these Populist Revolutions have the staying power of the Africanized Honey Bee, and make their way to El Norte.
[So much for any pretense about believing in orderly CONSTITUTIONAL government.]
Would love it if workers of the world indeed, unite
[Workers of the World, Unite! You have nothing to lose but your DUmmies!]
One can hope... but it will never be complete until it happens here.
[Please replace our CONSTITUTIONAL government with ANYTHING...even Sharia Law.]
Please, please bring it HERE! To the 'good ole' United States...
[Please replace our Democracy with any sort of totalitarianism...especially Bolshevism. But, hey, even Islamic Fundamentalism would be swell for me as long as we DESTROY our oppressive constitutional government.]
I'd believe it except I've been reading "Revolution" posts on DU since I started lurking in 2004.
[DUmmies wait for the "Revolution" like Linus waits for the Great Pumpkin. Please let this be the year that the Constitution is finally destroyed.]
