179. A revolution will happen. That's inevitable.
Edited on Sun Aug-12-07 12:01 PM by LWolf
It's a little surprising to me how quickly the mighty U.S. has collapsed, and it has collapsed. Our constitution and the ideals it was written to uphold are going down in the flames of corruption. Robinson Jeffers' poem, written before I was born , illustrates it perfectly:

While this America settles in the mould of its vulgarity, heavily thickening to empire,
And protest, only a bubble in the molten mass, pops and sighs out, and the mass hardens,

I sadly smiling remember that the flower fades to make fruit, the fruit rots to make earth.
Out of the mother; and through the spring exultances, ripeness and decadence; and home to the mother.

You making haste haste on decay: not blameworthy; life is good, be it stubbornly long or suddenly
A mortal splendor: meteors are not needed less than mountains: shine, perishing republic.

But for my children, I would have them keep their distance from the thickening center; corruption
Never has been compulsory, when the cities lie at the monsters feet there are left the mountains.


And boys, be in nothing so moderate as in love of man, a clever servant, insufferable master.
There is the trap that catches noblest spirits, that caughtthey sayGod, when he walked on earth.


The bolding is mine. I, too, will keep my distance from the "center" as the farce of politics implodes. I'd rather have a Kucinich revolution than the revolution I see currently brewing. When the dust clears, whether DK had anything to do with it or not, I hope that the people who remain evolve in his direction, towards peace, towards social and economic justice.
