Viva La Revolucion!

Austin Cline is calling for a revolution. It’s about fucking time!

America is revolting, or perhaps it's just not revolting enough. Extensive complacency seems to have set in, preventing people from getting outraged enough to do anything about the various — and connected — problems throughout society. Does anyone think that any of these problems will fix themselves? Perhaps part of the problem is that these problems have been building for so long that people no longer recognize the trouble we are in. If that's the case, then it might be helpful to keep harping on these problems and insisting that people directly face them.

The entire essay is worth reading, so click on the link. And if you get a chance, check out the comment that I left there.

Austin and I are both well aware of the atheistic surge taking place in the West. But what of the revolutionary surge? Is the two party system in peril? Is society ripe for a big, fundamental shift in the way it organizes and functions? Do people want to be able to choose their own interactions and associations?

Is it time for freedom?

Government is evil. It is time for freedom instead.
