      We've all known for some time now that "something is wrong." The clock is ticking, and at a much faster pace now than it used to. People are starting to wake up and see how the pieces fit together.

      The transfer of wealth upwards and de-regulation of the financial sector.
      Commodities speculation, which artificially inflates the cost of living for working classes.
      The continued wanton ruin of the environment.
      The explosive growth of the national security state and the outright destruction of civil rights and liberties.
      Disaster crony capitalism.
      Mass voter suppression.
      Systemic exploitation and destruction of the working class.
      The annihilation of America's public education system.
      The blatant purchase of elected officials.
      Endless wars of imperialism.

      I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that the events born this year, from the Wisconsin Statehouse to the Occupy campsites, are America's last stand.

      Rome fell, and with its fall came the Dark Ages.

      When the USA falls, what will be wrought? And can we, the People, stop it in time?

      When are you going to understand that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage. - Practical Magic
