The civil rights movement should give us encouragement and remove some of the apathy. United in overwhelming numbers, and using civil disobedience can turn the tide and create the change we are discussing here. It takes courage and discipline like the freedom riders and many others of that movement had. They too had different opinions on how to accomplish their goal, and who would be leaders etc.. but they mostly succeeded. The PTB know if we were unified and displayed our displeasure about the current situation we find ourselves in shit would really hit the fan, why do you think all the police state laws are being rushed through, and anyone can be labeled a "terrorist" for the most trivial of things we used to take for granted? A united disgruntled citizenry is a terrifying thought to them.
