What makes me so “radical.”

February 21, 2010

Even at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’ll say something
 like this many times over:
The groundwork for tyrannical government has been laid for a long time, and
the two-party elites and their corporate allies are building upon it.
I don’t respect this system as “representative” of
 my interests.
Sure I’m concerned about the system, and to some extent I fear it, but respect is
 not the same as fear and worry.
Some will find this ironic, but I believe one key to a just
 society is not participating in mainstream party politics.
We wouldn’t have to worry about countless things if
people stopped voting in sham elections, and directly took over what little economy they
 have left, working out problems as they arose rather than expect a
 corrupt and often violent political system to do it for them.
 Problems have proliferated because people are afraid to directly assert rights
 in their lives — in their communities, and in their places
of work.

There you go.  That’s what makes me so “radical.”
