Aristotle said that revolutions could be of two kinds, one that modifies the existing institutions of governance through a series of reforms, and the other a kind of revolution that radically changes the foundations of societal structures. Culture like biological systems can de-evolve into necrotic unsustainable dead ends. Like so many cultures that have gone extinct before us, the western model with its main characters is agonizing in self-destruct. The industrious corporatocracy has cornered society, preemptively herding us to a giant wall.
Reforming the current technocratic plutocracy will do little to improve the impending global economic collapse. With no signs of recovery, this current system of human interactivity does not work and we better redesign all our institutions immediately. Gradual change would be nice, but given the accelerating crashes all summing together into a singularity, change will come as traumatic birth. We must steer the human locomotive towards a plural society free of class or racial distinctions, based on respect, empathy, information, technology, local food-coops and art. New republican constitutions will be drafted with whole new sets of laws and social agreements. This revolution must begin with the eradication of all wars, tribal or continental.
Let’s declare a moratorium on the mega trillion military industrial complex and stop manufacturing weapons. Begin by stopping the carnage among fellow humans, no more innocent civilian casualties on any street or any town. It is unacceptable that we continue to conduct Darwinian primal impulses making of this world the psychopathy of horror and destruction. Instead why not build paradise on Earth, why not reconstruct and empower society to its fullest potential. It is totally sociopathic that we spend more trillions in national defense. We have to stop building bombs for the narco-mobster industry of death. We can begin by dismantling our nuclear stock pile’s which can kill Earth thousands and thousands of times over. We can begin with a moratorium on the poisoning of water, soil and air. Let’s put an urgent stop to all the toxic sterilizing pharmacopeia imposed by Big-Pharma. The master minds of these atrocities must be made accountable. Precipitately we need to knock some sense back into our collective thinking. No more shortsightedness lets be wise for the sake of our children.
Let’s invest in programs that will endow the common wealth in the context of community and ecology not this dumbing down of the population. Let’s promote holistic and preventive health education, inventiveness, creativity and innovation. Let’s revise how we create and distribute wealth. Let’s be eerie of market forces that deceive human beings and foster addictions. Let’s create regional economies based on real needs with quality goods and services. Let’s get millions working in the restoration of the biosphere. Let’s ignite small business and generate local markets that endure sustainability and cooperation in a host of autonomous technological villages. Why not?
Revolutions have occurred throughout the history of humankind resulting in major changes in sociopolitical institutions. In spurts of eruption that turn the tide of human destiny, revolutions tend to be short lived and they reach climax status after violent or nonviolent mass protests, arrests and casualties. As the hive mentality awakens, born out of famine in Africa, and extreme misery in Bombay, injustice is activating millions of unemployed destitute homeless after foreclosure, worker layoffs, jobless graduates and sweatshop laborers of south East Asia. They are all taking the streets. With nothing left to loose but life itself, we are calling on a stop to this insanity.
The 1% elite sustains itself on the shoulders of the soul collective. We cannot accept this anymore; this unfathomable dysfunction inside the sociopathic ego-mind of gangster mega-banks must be stopped. It must also stop within ourselves, a mandatory revision of who we are and what it is that we’re doing is past due. However, the human spirit is rising to the occasion like the phoenix, with its marvelous ability to heal and resurrect from the ashes. We must also understand that the collective energy force is a force to be reckoned with. We must deal with its energy signature as a whole and not belonging to any one individual. The illusion of self is a myriad, when you fall asleep it disappears, we are more like different perspectives, or the many eyes that decorate this fluffy sponge cake called consciousness.
Since “we are all one” consciousness, it is our mighty responsibility to admit to our collective malfunction. Let’s accept our mistakes and admit to our temptations. We have become detached from reality, we have forgotten to desire freedom and habituated to slavery. If we want to be free we have to get rid of our dependencies and the controls in our life. An authentic revolution almost entirely comes from within in an act of self-governance, yet it stands for the collective. The distress and illness of any part of this multifaceted collective, disrupts its coherence, contains growth and diminishes the mass awakening eyes of consciousness. The ground truth is that the current model of society has taken us to a crumbling wall. The game is over; this paradigm has to be replaced with brand new systems of governance. The laws that keep this corporate banker global system are only binding upon the consent of “we the people.” This is the founding principle of direct democracy. What this means is that all laws can be revoked at any time, no law is deemed mandatory. The inalienable right to say no more will incite the change we are claiming for.
Completely disconnected from human suffering and ecosystem suicide, the private banking cartels hide in their slick high rises relying on deceptive derivatives, rigged speculation and ponzi schemes. With no more banker bail outs, the walls of this fortress will not contain the explosion of mass awakening. People from all scales of society are occupying big cities and towns, tired of deceit and government abuse, hungry, broke, in debt, expressing their right to free speech and to peaceful assembly. In the meantime, the corporate CEO’s, occupied with their own psychopathy and record bonuses, perpetuate the power of their bosses in the shadow banking headquarters. Their workers on Wall Street occupy offices with buttoned up $3 thousand dollar suits, hiding behind computers screens. They too will witness the walls collapsing around them like chips on the mega bubble monopoly board. They too will be joining the 99% on Main Street. Govern thyself or be governed by others. What space do you want to occupy?
