    and when change is not forthcoming, revolution presides. While I might prefer the former, I'll accept the latter. So which side are you on?

    Do I favor revolution as a means to achieve political change when agrivation and agitation aren't enough?

    Is that the question?
    Change is good.
    Revolution is a last resort.
    Can you clarify your question?

    I often advertise myself here in USMB as a moderate Democrat, cc. But nonetheless I am associated with radicals and otherwise derilects. Liberal I am. Honest I am as well. I only hinge on radicalism. I think revolution is only brought about by frustration that results in radicalism. Many here with far more right wing ideologies appear to be also on the verge. Do you dig it, cc?

    Problem is you are defending the status quo and not change.

    Affirmative action.

    Abortion.

    The current problems with the education system.

    Social security

    Trying to protect the power of the left.

    but you guys cant handle being out of power in a free society. Your ideas lost. So you guys want revolution. Its your death.

    The United States is too civilized to start a revolution. We like things being predictable, and safe. But if we don't find a solution soon, the revolution will come to us.

    Like I said, I'm on my second Mike's, so bear with me.

    Now I know why you're all addicted. (to this board) I want someone to start mediating an interesting discussion about merging left-winged and right-winged ideas. Or facilitating a give-and-take type barter.

    It's fine to sit back and talk about all the issues that need to be addressed, when things are going well in the world. But right now we need to stop fighting and sort out some solutions to the really big problems that work for Everyone. Or else Everyone will keep fighting and eventually Someone's going to get really hurt.

    Then people can take a load off, and start up on the smaller, but still very important issues that affect our day-to-day lives. Like healthcare, education, etc etc.
