arguing with counter-revolutionaries

Just about all of the good (material) things in your life is supplied by corporations.  You are greedy and want more, so you are about to kill the golden goose (sic).

Ah yes, the classic lament of the counter-revolutionary: "You guys will wreck  EVERYTHING; nothing will be                     like it is now."

Yeah, that's kind of the idea.

No more megabucks flowing to the .1%. No more war for those parasites to batten on.

No more crappy & useless paper pushing "jobs" in cubicles. Just listen to crazy Jim:

The more detached from reality American culture becomes the more strictly ceremonial leadership gets, as illustrated by the raft of bromides Barack Obama floated past the assembled vassalage of government last week in another grand effort to avoid the necessities of the moment.

Those necessities include freeing a hostage public from the tyrannical clutches of corporate despotism — the evil empire of big boxes, big burgers, big pharma, Big Brother — and the atrocious rackets fostered by them that masquerade as an economy. The template of the life we have known is broken and the pieces within are flying apart, and no amount of wishing or promising can keep them going. If this society is even going to survive, the people have to smash their way out of this template prison, probably against the efforts of the people and organizations now running it merely for their own benefit. (Januay 2015).

Don''t listen to the siren song of the counter revolutionary. I'd rather drink muddy water & sleep in a hollow log / than to stay around here gettin treated like a dirty dog.

What's so bad about it? War & racketeering mostly. Russia fell when the Czar refused to acknowledge the war (WWI) was a lost cause, France when the monarchy refused to force the .1% off the backs of the people. What hapens is that the people look at the thin layer of "leadership" holdig society together, realize "they don't give a damn about us," and then recognize how easy it is to shake em off.

If you're thinking our situation here today is unique, you're dreamin. The last time this almost happened (1929-30) it was brought on by a nearly identical situation, in which the oligarchy, ater wrecking the economy, left the people holding the shitty end of the stick. 

One more thing, Seraphim: civilization is a lot tuffer than you think. It won't go away...
