    Absolutely none of these people can be trusted about anything. I wonder how long it's really been this way.
    Arafat won the Nobel for peace in 1994. Obama won it for doing precisely nothing in 2009. Itís really been that way at least that long.

    An inside job has been very effective for the Marxist movement in America.

    Imaging viewing climate change that way.

    Anti the flip side of this, which is a bitter pill to swallow (and I as an older Millennial have to accept just as much responsibility), is that today's women that you're alluding to with the Russian revolution example flourished amongst very mentally, physically, and spiritually weak men. It's some chicken or egg debate, whether the weak men created the [ ] women or vice versa. Basically, who the fuck cares, we're back to that ""strong men create good times create weak men create bad times" meme, which doesn't do or mean anything because neither Robert (silent generation?) or Rip (Boomer) or Millennial (me) wants to claim responsibility as THE generation of men who enjoyed the good times and turned weak. Rip and Robert no offense meant I just picked you two, as frequent commenters, and standard-bearers of your generations, for the comparison.
    So we're back to square one, David's proposal IIRC, you don't even have to reverse Universal Suffrage or the other big issues, just:
    be the best man you can be,
    raise your family "right,"
    try to be as insignificantly interconnected as possible to mainstream culture and the federal government behemoth,
    and try to find or foster at least a small community of like-minded people (like-minded on the BIG, important stuff) around you.

    That seems like it'll free up much more energy and set the mind at ease since you have more influence over all of that within your life and can see your results, which will feed positively into your motivation-act-struggle-experiment feedback loop until you ultimately succeed.

    True, but marxists are a different breed and merely emulating what you think they do is cargo cult mentality. marxists are successful because there are many moving parts all working on unison, providing support and cover for each other as well as practical, logistical and financial support to go onto a well established philosophical framework to justify everything they do.

    Example.

    On one hand you have Mike. Mike has decided that he wants to fight for george soros and his ilk and defend the globo-homo world empire. In isolation he can't do much, but if he walks into a US army recruiting office, he will slot himself into a pre existing structure that will utilise him to full effect.

    Mark on the other hand wants to save America and decides to go down to the border to "man the wall" He is arrested on the journey down because his social media footprint identifies him and his phone allows him to be tracked easily and picked up at leisure by the FBI. Due to his charges, no lawyers will represent his case and he is forced to represent himself against a variety of federal charges.

    Thomas Sowell is a black conservative, former professor at Cornell among other universities and now 90 years old. He's extremely critical of Obama and particularly of white liberals starting from 50 years past in the way they've addressed poverty including affirmative action programs for creating a lot of problems for poor ghetto blacks. I've listened to a number of his podcasts recently. Someone else is doing the talking on this thirteen and a half minute video. To say that this podcast and others from him have been mind blowing is an understatement. WEB DuBois mentioned near the beginning of this video was a prominent black intellectual from the 19th century.
    The Origin of Black American Gangster Culture | Thomas Sowell - YouTube

    In this talk, near the end, he talks about the success rate of blacks from the West Indies in New York who faced the same racism, who before any affirmative action programs attained a lot of success economically and politically. Excuses about racism and slavery (Carribean blacks were also enslaved) for the plight of blacks in the ghetto aren't the facts. Very unfortunately, it's a self-perpetuating culture of violence and self-created problems now glorified by hip hop culture. Another podcast mentions how Northern blacks had a very different culture and were integrated with their white neighbors in Chicago until the black migration from the South after World War II. Northern blacks who had been there generations didn't like the culture of Southern blacks, and most ended up in ghettos unfortunately. Sowell cites the statistics and knows the history. He's worth checking out.

    Victor Hansen on Tucker for 33 mins.

    When old Guys are talking revolutions things are getting hairy. I'm glad you guys are ahead of us by a decade or so.

    If you don't want to watch it, there's a moment where Tucker asks something along the lines of "why can't you run from this" and the answer is "They can find you" And they will. You are already on the kill lists. Traditional revolutions have already relied on informants in neighbourhoods to draw up lists. It's all on Amazon and Google servers now.

    Al Gore won it in 2007. That says it all!
