Grassroots movements are the best; only the minorities can change the majority, and, indeed, the majority is always just a deceptive minority or two. Especially what with how big our countries are getting, how small the world is seeming, and how huge the gaps of ignorance have always been: now more than ever must we try to realize our size, then can we actualize our potential. As Chomsky points out, America is a well-polled nation. We should keep better track of this. We should have apps for this. We should have a system of social achievements, or points, based on how much we participate in whatever it is we participate in. Bring back royal titles, only promote them beyond royalty. There’s really just so much going on now, if we don’t realize soon that we could be doing it together, that we can even come together at all, then the fun is good as dead – and when the funs dead, you know hard works been dead a long time, and all thats left is probably just transferring our consciousnesses into robots or whatever (now thats what I call Associations!). I think we all know its really a political problem at this point, but we shouldn’t let the state claim to be the people! If Man is a political beast (though I’d rather contend that he is a laughing hyena (but, hey, whats the difference?)), then government is either our political predator or prey… either way, we’ve got to keep each other in check (not mate). On a side note, I’m no confederate, but I sure as hell would be open for that whole California seceding from the union, setting charges to the fault lines, and just drifting out to sea, going half-Atlantis just because we can. Still, I’d give this whole being-a-whole-country-business a little more time; god knows (we all know) we all have the desire to better associate! I, for one, say we get a new mythos going. Hollywood tried real hard, and are still trying way too hard (and by that, I mean they pander), but we need to all be creators. like now.

I’ll leave ya a little quote.

Whitman, Leaves of Grass:

“These are really the thoughts of all men in all ages and lands, they
are not original with me,
If they are not yours as much as mine they are nothing, or next
to nothing,
If they are not the riddle and the untying of the riddle they are
nothing,
If they are not just as close as they are distant they are nothing.

 

This is the grass that grows wherever the land is and the water is,
This the common air that bathes the globe.”
