However, the idea that the public will ever force the entrenched corporate-states around the world to bend to their will because they're on the streets is very unlikely. Even if the protests become violent riots like in Greece, the controllers will not release their clutches. In fact, history says they'll only tighten them.
Additionally, those seeking systematic solutions all seem well-intentioned and deserve credit for offering ideas. But the more we understand that the system's creators and beneficiaries don't want it to change, the more we realize that even apparent solutions will never take place unless they're co-opted to fit the needs of the controllers.
There seems to be an awful lot of energy being spent fighting against the system, which is akin to swimming upstream.
We're getting nowhere fast and it's zapping our energy, as it seems intended to do.
And what would happen if each disenfranchised protester stopped demanding something, and, instead, simply started creating the change?
I'm talking about taking a systematic problem that you're most passionate about, identifying a change you can make in your personal life to limit your contribution to the problem, while also finding a tangible alternative to fully support.
For example, if you're passionate about clean energy as part of the solution, don't waste time railing against dirty energy. Focus on what you can do in your own life. Limit your use of dirty energy, install solar panels on your house, start an alternative energy blog or business, organize an energy cooperative for your community to become cleaner and more self-sufficient, or all of the above.
If enough people took to this initiative on their own terms, the diversity of action would destroy the current energy paradigm much faster than holding a sign and screaming about nuclear energy, oil cartels, or safer working conditions for coal miners.
Or, if you oppose corporate farming and factory food production, don't just spend all of your time informing people as to the evils of such a system ~ also live the change and help others to do so.
In other words, harness all of the energy you can muster into productive personal goals, and the solutions will blossom around you.
If each of us does something we believe in and are passionate about, no amount of force can stop the entropy of the change.
IT'S TIME TO BE THE CHANGE.
