We all have to choose the path that's best. If I were still in my teens or twenties, who knows, I might be out there with OWS and whatnot.
Because their system will (quite literally) run out of gas. They'll have their hands full just holding onto the United States and Canada once the oil stops flowing from the Middle East.
Some sociopolitical trends--like the imperial and collapse stages of big republics--are simply too big for any person to alter. The herd will go where the herd goes. And the best course of action to follow is simply not to be there when it does. Ask any European Jew who saw the 1930s and 1940s. Your best course of action was to LEAVE.
Yes clearly that single historic event in the history of all mankind is a gauge on how the world works more then seventy years ago. Not to mention Hitler failed.
Hell , He failed down right spectacularly.
Not just are the jews still alive but they have there own country , one of the leading superpowers ended up having a black president and i'm pretty sure his approval rating is less then forty percent globally. I don't vote for the same reason that I don't belive in these vast conspiracies like the bilderberg group , bohemian groove and the Illuminati. It's something Sagan said.
"Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar", every "supreme leader", every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."
That's it. Every leader from Hitler to Stalin to Churchill was just a man. A man living on a dot in the vast cosmos. You might think that man is great or wondrous or impeccable or evil , unjust and a villain but he's just a teeny creature living on a mote of dust in the universe. Nothing he does really effects the cosmos at large. Electing Barack Obama or Mitt Romney or running away from your invisible boogeyman isn't going to effect the macrocosm.
We're ants. Living in ant hill , fighting for that ant hill despite the fact that we don't have that much time here anyways.
Once again take the Eastern jews of the 30s and 40s. Yes they died in one of the world's most horrific tragedies but what would've happen if they won? If they ousted Hitler before the holocaust started? They still would've died eventually.
De Gaulle , Churchill , Patton , Hitler , Rohm , Goebbbels all end up in the same place. The ground.
Entropy doesn't care about socialism , fascism liberalism or conservatism. Everything dies period.
