I think you've seen one too many movies about the glories of revolutions. I've read a bit about the phenomena. With few exceptions they share a common theme - they are bloody, cruel, and frequenly result in regimes worse than those they hoped to replace. So let's see what awaits in revolution:
1. I face death from battle, exposure, starvation, disease, etc. on an almost daily basis.
2. It is highly likely that at least one of my kids would lose their life. Not to mention that all of them would be pulled from the education system and have their childhoods ripped away and replaced by a nightmare of death and destruction.
3. There would likely be significant damage to the country's infrastructure that would last well into the future - prolonging the issues from numbers 1 and 2.
4. We'd probably end up with a regime far less concerned with freedom than the one with which we started.
I type this from a warm home, stocked with food and medicine. My family is close by. Police, fire, EMT are all here at a moments notice if there is a problem. I have access to more information than has ever been amassed in human history - at my fingertips in seconds. My kids go to great schools. We can use roads to get anyplace we wish for hiking, biking, skiing, hunting, fishing, etc. In short, I (and most Americans) live a life that is the stuff of dreams for all past generations.
You are saying that we should give up all the things in the second paragraph in favor of all the things in the list? Because someone is reading my email and searching me before plane flights? You go first.
I completely agree with your sentiments regarding the government overstepping its bounds. Talk of revolution, however, just seems absurd (at least from my station in life).
