Thoughts on the future, on where we are headed...

Be awake, Be aware, Be alive,
This all will change, and not by some magic force, rather the people will reach that all feared breaking point and react, I think the challenge is going to be finding a way to take that energy and putting it into effective means (as in not watching major cities simply descend into rioting.)
I see a revolution of sorts coming from all sides and political spectrums and even a-political spectrums. I see people whom would normally not even associate in the same room working together to achieve a specific end by a specific means. The question that leaves me wondering greatly is "After the fall, and the inevitable civil war for power ensues, and the multiple factions that once worked together are now ripping each others throats out to be the "new kings and queens of this republic, Would the American populace not beg for a police state that would in effect end up being more brutal that the one that currently exists? Would the sheep without direction, comfort, or the ability to be complacent beg for some ultra brutal force to "restore order?"
We must have a vision and a direction to implement, otherwise we are inherently doomed to repeat history.
Empire rises>Empire falls through foreign or domestic means>Empire is restored in a similar if not more extreme manner by those same people who advocated the fall.
We cannot go from being the oppressed to being the oppressors, this cannot be sustained in any realistic manner.
The challenge has been set, how long will the masses wait to answer the call? We cannot afford to wait for someone else to do it, each and every one of us must do what needs to be done. We cannot say, "X person will come along and create a movement of massive proportions." We need to stop waiting for some Saviour, we can save ourselves if we choose to. We must make that choice, we must take that leap onto the road less traveled.
Hope and truth are great and powerful weapons that we all possess. No human or weapon can take your hope, no human or weapon can alter what is known to be truth. The power players have greatly underestimated the sheer power of the human spirit, no matter how bad things get, things will come full circle.
We are alive in quite possibly the most interesting and horrific period in American history.
We must learn to take care if one another, all we have is each other. We must learn to live and survive Autonomously with one another with no help from those outside of our autonomous communities.
The old ways are becoming new again, these destructive ways that the human race has adopted must be forgotten again.
We must end the simple chatter of these ideas and start making the dream a reality. There is no better place than here and no better time than now. The future is ours if we choose to shape it. Our reality can change quicker than many would like to accept. We can be if we choose to be, the greatest generation of all. The future is unwritten, grab a pen.

Dec. 21, 2012 is indeed a date that holds mystery and intrigue for many around the world. I hope that humanity is able to change for the better.
