A friend of mine invited me to a supposed 'revolution' that the organiser wants to take place in London on 11th September 2011.
The idea being that on 11th August 2011, everyone stops going to work and begins a month of 'non-compliance.' After that month everyone then 'peacefully' seizes the capital of London (and other capital cities).

The organiser wants this to happen all around the world, not just London. But he personally will be marching into London (although probably on his own.)

Quote by Charles Torres Veitch
We will occupy these buildings physically, spiritually, and symbolically. We will use the apparatus in place for improving the lot of people, and we will implement a new human constitution which aids the enlightenment and free will of all men and women, not only big business and career politicians. We will gently replace the class-structure with one which sees the individual as sacred. I will need the help of all of you, because I do not know how to write a constitution, nor do I know how to run a country.


I personally think the guy is nuts.
But what about you, Pit monkeys?

Do we need a worldwide (or even nationwide) revolution?
Is a month of non-compliance the best way to start a revolution, if not, what is?
Is it possible to overturn the current authority and still function as a society?

Discuss.

I'm sure I could help by occupying Parliament House symbolically. My chips could symbolise liberty and freedom, and my eating them in my pants while watching clips of Top Gear on Youtube could symbolise taking them back from those in power.

Dumb. Even if it was realistic it would take decades to build a support base big enough and organise this. Not 2 years.

To geeman: I think this guy is just aware of the shit load of world we live in.

I think it's definitly a good idea to see the human as sacred, but I'm sorry it just won't happen. There is too many assholes on this planet.

Just another middle aged man trying to find a spark in life either by getting into conspiracy theories or organizing pathetic crap. It's almost as pathetic as calling you and your friends a militia and thinking your all badass.

Yes. I don't even know what that word means. But please, if it's grammatically wrong feel free to correct it.

My guess is that a dozen people in london will miss a day of work, realize no one else did it, and go back.

If you're going to go on some vague tirade against capitalism I wouldn't use the country which has gained possibly the most from it as an example of where needs it removed the most.

To suggest China however is just stupid. Hell, class divides are probably a lot firmer set there than in the US or the UK.

It's the biggest country that is supposed to still be communist. I understand that they moved away from that a lot, but they still live under the same government Mao set up. It was kind of my point, I was kind of being ironic. I don't care, I don't really wish to prove my intelligence to someone over the internet that I'll never meet.

Anyone with half a brain would know otherwise. Don't take it personally but It'd be nicer if you didn't throw that kind of stupid around.
