    Not exactly sure if we agree or disagree until I re-read.

    Meh.... 50/50 with you on that one.

    Still think people are entitled to keep their dignity and hold those they trust accountable.
    What do you think the end goal should be? Holding people accountable can only be done systematically. What kind of system should it be?

    There's no such thing as "end goal." Purely an illusion.

    Opinions, preferences, and status are a fluid thing that keeps changing, and will continue to do so. IF you want some sort of permanent resolution, you will need to start lobotomizing the general populace (I think TV is getting that job half done,) slipping complacency chems into the general food and water supply, or something of equal measure to cause the people's thoughts and ambitions to stagnate.

    Otherwise, prepare for change. Constant, never ending change.

    Not really, because technically is an olygarchy/corporatocracy and democracy only by name.

    I agree with this 100%. In a round about way, it's the whole point behind my long ass post. I think human beings are destined to struggle. Life as a member of the human race will always be volatile. With this in mind, our current situation seems reasonably stable and liveable. We should ride our current system as long as we can and make the most of it, even if it pisses us off that some people **** $500 bills and we don't.

    Don't let it fool you into a false sense of security. Historically, **** can hit the fan at the drop of a hat. Once the annoyance/aggrivation level reaches critical mass, the disenfrenchized masses are like a pool of kerosine catching sparks.

    Alas, bloody, violent revolutions are part of human nature.

    I don't have a false sense of security. I'm perfectly aware our way of life can change any minute and I've said so before on this site many times. All the more reason to enjoy relative stability while we can.

    Yes, revolutions are a part of life. They can liberate the people who feel oppressed and give them enough power to oppress others. No reason to hurry that process along in my opinion.

    I have a very simple philosophy in life. In everything you do, in everywhere you move, anticipate a zombie apocalypse. Zombie-proof everything, and if **** does hit the fan (in terms of actual societal collapse,) you and your fam are pretty much good to go.

    You sure? When one looks at the track record of say, Athens on war, slavery, and women's rights...not to mention that more people voted for the American Idol than Barack and john combined....I think republic is the way to go but there needs to be a few changes in how we pick our representatives. Term limits would be a great start....
