You know, for all the semi punk anti the machine TM discordianism, this group at least, isn't very revolutionary.

We started out that way, but it quickly became evident that revolutions just cause more bullshit, even if you win.  Especially if you win.

I'm just here to watch the burning wreckage go down the stairs.

Given most people in the western world talking about revolution are about on a level with the OP, both intellectually and morally...well yeah.  I can shoot myself in the foot just fine, I don't need others to do it for me.

Revolution isn't my bag; too many people dying. I'm more of a cultural shift kinda girl.

I mean, we didn't  get same-sex marriage, socialized medicine, assisted suicide, municipal composting, free community college, and legal marijuana via revolution. I'd personally like to work it out so that we keep  all the good  things about our governmental infrastructure and eliminate the bad things as much as possible, rather than scrap the whole thing and start  over, which often as not just results in a different shitty overlord the same as the last one.

Also, this is not the place where those of us who do revolutionary shit get things done.

There's also that.
