We Don’t Need No Revolution
We Don’t Need No Revolution By Chris Campbell – LFB.org
You’ll hear many outspoken radical pundits in the coming weeks, months and years jubilantly declare to the masses: The “Revolution” is nigh!
Watch for it: “Revolution,” with a less-than-subtle dash of “grassroots,” may soon hop on the buzzword bus.
But don’t be fooled.
Revolutions, especially those proffered up by the pop-cult likes of AntiFa, Russell Brand, Bernie Sanders and Katy Perry, are, however well-intentioned they may (or may not) be, in the end, when the dust settles, different fig leaves on the same old saggy baggie of family jewels.
The “Revolution” will not give change.
If any Revolution is to gain any traction at all, it’s likely only because forces behind the curtains wish to wield the ungodly pyramids of power all for themselves.
The Revolution, then, will be televised.
Because, if it’s anything at all, it’s just another proxy war between the snakes in the grass.
As Francis Bacon put it: All the world’s a stage.
The Revolutionaries are the pawns, the busy-bodied zombies, the misplaced angry, the useful dummies, the nimblest and most unprincipled of all the marionettes.
Revolutions claim virtue, but their rocket fuel is revenge, envy and an unquenchable lust for power.
The wise one’s mission, then, if he or she chooses to accept it, is certainly not to “#Resist” the Revolution, and definitely not to resort to violence (in violence, the House Hydra always wins), but to simply help expedite an obsolescence of all of the eternal turnings.
And to do so in the place that matters most — right outside the doorstep.
To the Victor, Out of the Foil
Harharkh, a contributor on The Spiritual Sun blog, suggests the quiet creation of a parallel system running alongside the current status quo.
Lasting change, after all, doesn’t come from extremely loud and incredibly close cannon fodder, but by the quiet, patient perseverance of the worker, the grower, the producer, the doer, the builder, the inventor, the imagineer, the feeler, the thinker, the tinkerer… the maker.
