The end of the political era. [View all]

Last edited Sun Jun 12, 2016, 04:57 PM - Edit history (1)

Living as we do, struggling from day-today just to survive within a collapsing economy embedded within a collapsing empire embedded with a collapsing ecosystem. We must come to terms with the fact that we now inhabit a world where meaningful progressive change can no longer be facilitated through the political process. As society crumbles and resources dwindle, we must learn to hone our tactical abilities. Not just as a means for survival, but to achieve a lasting and practical path for humanity as we enter this new dark age. We have entered the Age of Great Consequence. We need to start treating every decision we make as if it were the most important decision we will ever make. When voting loses its power as a means of voicing suffrage. All other aspects of our daily lives must take up the slack in response. Vote with your feet. Vote with your bicycles. Vote with your gardens. Vote with your renewable energy. Vote with your every purchase. Vote with every special skill you have been graced with. Vote with your anger. Vote with your love. Vote with your life.
