Ordinary Americans' Options

Ordinary Americans brought up to believe in “justice, freedom, democracy” have been watching their elected governments blatantly erode and betray each and every one of these noble principles. Sadly, there seems very little they can do besides voting. But by now, even the intellectually challenged and CNN intoxicated should realise that the ballot box is just an eeny-meeny-miny-moe democracy chimera designed to fool them, and to subvert others.

Facing two surreally abominable candidates this year, some angry and helpless Americans talk about “revolution”. I hope they are only venting frustrations, for an armed insurrection against one of the most violent and powerful military regimes in human history is suicidal.

A peaceful and passive revolution, however, is possible.
