What protesting is, or any other collective action, is ultimately an act of insanity. Because as Einstein described it, repeating a task and expecting a different result each time is an act of insanity. History has proven conclusively that each and every method which has been tried against the State, and by extension the money power elite who own the world, has FAILED. What should be evident is as the awakening masses come to realize this, it takes more and more state violence under the cover of sumptuary law for the power structure to maintain control.
 Elections have not worked. The ballots are rigged. The candidates preselected, so your choice is irrelevant anyway.
 Law suits have not worked. The judges are owned, the laws skewed to favor the system above all else.
Protests have not worked. Brutality or indifference renders them moot.
Many of which are controlled arguments and thus irrelevant.
 Petitions are ignored. Ballot initiatives are thwarted by the courts. See above. Strikes never get enough participants. And in this country at least, are widely viewed as collectivist and derided.
Opposition movements are quickly co-opted or counter movements raised
as a dialectic is built. To wit: the Tea Party vs. Occupy.
 Violence is counter productive and is actually what the state is best prepared for.
of these methodologies are used to waste the activist's energies into
frustration. To divert your resources into avenues which the system
tolerates as legally acceptable and ultimately non threatening to the
system itself. Wake up and realize we are repeating the insanity by
continuing to choose the methods which have repeatedly failed. We must
use the opposite consciousness to solve this problem, we must see the
world anew. Just walk away. Withdraw your consent. If the problem is
collectivism then the answer is individual action. The elite fear this
most, because they cannot predict or control YOU. They can only
influence group dynamics... The TEA Party, Occupy Wall St., mass media
and society at large.
Like quicksand, the more you struggle, the
more you will be ensnared. The more you ignore them, the less powerful
they become. The more of us ignore them, eventually they will become
irrelevant. This is how Obama has defeated the opposition Congress. For
those who recognize just how truly unique and precious individual
liberty really is, we stand in awe of the founding fathers and I have
met many well meaning people who differ not in goals but applications of
solutions. However, we need to stop worshiping the Constitution. As any
of the founders would have told you, its just a piece of paper. A
meaningless document unless WE are educated, informed and engaged
ourselves, because government is not a separate entity. It is us - if we
mean to self govern. Of course this is not the case today where we have
a national state, which was never supposed to exist. We recoil in
disgust as it places itself above not only the once sovereign several
states which created it, but above the individual as well.-Read more: http://www.wendymcelroy.com/news.php?extend.6031
