So I was totally thinking about how scary and fucked up America is right now, and it made me think... The French Revolution: The rich got richer an the poor got so fucking poor that they decided that some rich people need to not be rich and/or die. The (American) Civil War: The rich folks in the South had lots of people (slaves). Because of this, there lacked jobs and having a bunch of people not being able to work for money (slaves), meant that taxes were a bitch for most people. Today in America: The rich are so much richer that we have the Occupy movement where part of the protests deals with the fact that rich people are paying people in other countries to work for them (for slave wages), making taxes a bitch for the majority of Americans. Difference between then and now: 1. Nuclear weapons/SWAT/Police to incite fear in people. 2. Media/Corporations that help us not know/care about what's really going on. 3. If it came down to a war on our home turf, most of us would be fucked. That's my thoughts. I beg of you to share yours! And by "I beg of you", I mean "please give two shits because war is something we should totally care about"
