I have been watching the news lately and i just watched most of "Bowling for Columbine" for the 3rd time and plan to finish it tomorrow. What i have gathered from these things is that. I think the world is failing, i think its time for some revolution. I say this because, when you have people in power like George Bush, Dick Cheney, Amadivoghad(president of Iran, spelling? screw spelling I dont care about his name) in other words. A bunch of crazy people, and not just in the US Iran, i mean countries throughout the world. It just spells disaster. the American government is becoming to restricting to its peoples, sure there are lots of crazy people out there, but what really drives them to their crimes?

The "news" that is on TV, just emphasizes the fear in our everyday lives. the murders, rapes, bombings, war, etc. and the mass media, puts so much emphasis on whats in and out and what is cool and what isnt, and if you dont do this your not cool and **** you. i think that needs to change. the growing gap in the distribution of income is rising, The wealth is going to be concentrated into a group of people, the wealthy, whilst most of the population is stuck with little money. We are spending so much money on some stupid war, if we used that money and put it back into our own communities and towns, we would have enough education funds, money for good after school programs and such. which means less crime and eventually a more productive community overall. I dont know im kind of just venting, what are your guys' views on a revolution and stuff?

Wont a revolution mean more war?

But I'm well out of the firing line so it could be quite entertaining to watch.

yeah, the world needs to ****in straighten up, but this revolution would need to be GIANT, especially since there's so many different things to revolt against, it would be too hard to unite enough people for one cause.

lol, the thought of a revolution actually happening in a modern nation like the US is laughable.


the revolution would be crushed before it even got started. you could never get enough people to agree on one thing for it to get big enough.
#11
Of course you're gonna think along those lines if you watch bowling for columbine almost 3 times. If there was actually a revolution what would you do? The government would resist it, and loads of people would be killed. Besides, if you cant even be bothered to learn how to spell Ahmadinejad, a revolution would be a bit much, wouldnt it?

I hate our government. They keep setting up more regulations and taxes and restrictions and its stupid. They keep acting like they are trying to please every one but its just getting stupid. If 20 people complain about something but no one else cares they change it and then every one gets pissed off. Then they take everything else that is related to the thing they change and change those things too "well if you censored ass u might as well censor penis" and then they continue on with that until they censor words like "Colt 45", "balls", "weed"(all of these are in the song What its Like.
I had to change my car battery the other day. There was a 3 dollar "battery Tax", What the **** is that? That was added onto the sales tax. I mean seriously that is just stupid. They put random ass taxes on EVERYTHING. Vehicle taxes are horrible. Car tags, boat tags, and semi-trucks have to have a 20'000$ MCC license which they need just to drive on the roads. those are just auto taxes, thats not to mention the rest.

It's really sad that in our society being intelligent is frowned upon (0MGZZZ wut a n3rd!!!1) while mediocrity is perfectly okay. If people were just a little more concerned in education and less in looking cool. America especially disappoints me. If we opened our eyes to the world and realized there are other cultures out there, I would be soo happy. I get so ****ing pissed when people have absolutley no idea where a certain country is, and don't care. One girl I talked to said "I don't get why we have to learn Spanish, hell, the rest of the world should speak English." I'm not asking for anyone to know the capital of Cameroon or whatever but it would be wonderful if we had respect for other cultures. I feel that ignorance and arrogance are HUGE problems in the US. If that was worked on, many things would improve

Honestly, the world is a lot better than it was years ago. What people don't understand is that there are always going to be problems, and that the media will always emphasize them.

"Oh, there are higher crime rates now."

No, it is actually a much safer world to live in mor today's generation than for our parents'. Guess what time today's crime rate is basically equivalent to? The late 1950's. And, social issues aside, the late 1950's weren't so bad. Ever since Regan, the crime rate has gone down, big time. It's just slowly increased over the past few years. The 1990's were one of the safest decades in American history.

"Well divorce rates are up."

But gambling, drinking, and spousal abuse are down. Countries with higher divorce rates tend to have less of these sorts of problems.

"What about the war?"

What, Iraq? Please. It's hardly a war than just a couple of battles against an ununiformed militia. It's an impossible war to win, because there is no distinct enemy. Don't get me wrong, I support the troops 100%, God bless them. But honestly, with a few exceptions, the Middle East in general is less a group of countries than it is a group of mobs with armies.

And to the guy who made the statement about the greencard lottery, that is because there is a certain limit to how many can enter the country. Otherwise there would be too many people and not enough jobs. Anyone who's ever played Sim City knows that... :roll:

A revolution is hardly what the world needs, and is hardly going to happen anytime soon. The only reason not much gets done in this country is because Congress is a mess. Yes, there needs to be a change. But a V For Vandetta-style revolution? Please. This is a Republic, not a Tyranny. And please, I hope no one gets to calling Bush a Facist; I doubt you even know what one is.

And God, to all of the little Anarchists out there, you realize that an Anarchy is a political idealogy, right? Honestly, if the people of a nation had an accepted set of principles, and Anarchy would, honestly, be the ideal world. But there are too many people with the "Fuck the rules" state of mind that an Anarchy would end up being a disaster.

Edit - Quite the rant, eh?

I meant hte calling Bush a facist comment to anyone who did, not saying that you nessescarily called him one.

And yes, I could name 10 good things that 145 million dollars could go to. I simply meant that all the people who call this a terrible war blow things out of proportion.

Whats loose change?

And no i dont follow Liberals around. My political views are moderate. And my first post isnt about liberal media or bowling for columbine. Just because I was thinking about it, doesnt mean its why i wrote this thread. Just like reading a book about something doesnt make you want to instantaneously start a thread on UG's pit, or maybe it does for some people but not for me.

I was saying it is better that a high school student care about politics no matter how little he or she knows than to not care at all. Loosen up, man.

revolution is coming. in the 2008 elections. the US has always had the advantage of nonviolent regime changes (see election of 1800). unless you buy into the "der it's all one party! there's no difference between them! they're all corporate puppets!"
