You Say You Wan’t A Revoluiton? Well, You Know…

February 22, 2008

Mr. C. read in interesting article written by Sara Robinson of ourfuture.org. Ms Robinson’s article called “When Change Is Not Enough: The Seven Steps To Revolution” breaks down the seven conditions that have historically existed in countries that have undergone some sort of revolution in the last 300 years. Some notable examples include Russia, China, France and the United States.You say you want a revolution, Well you know… we all wan

The article is interesting not because it calls for citizens to rise up,revolt against society and stick it to the man. It is interesting because it shows how the last 30 + years of American conservatism have created the ideal conditions for a modern day revolution. The author is not saying a cultural revolution like we had in the 1960’s or an economic revolution like the labor movement created in the 1930’s. No, Ms. Robinson article is saying that the conservatards have created a nation that may turn into a revolution more like the 13 American colonies waged against England.

The seven conditions being the following:

1) Crashing of a soaring economy.

2) Class warfare.

3) Deserted intellectuals.

4) Incompetent government.

5) A gutless ruling class.

6) Fiscal impressionability.

7) Inept and inconsistent use of force.

Does any of this sound familiar? If so, then proceed calmly to the nearest exit and leave the country, and would the last person out kindly turn off the lights? Thank you for flying Conservatard Air!
