    It sometimes happens so slowly you just think it is itself impossible.  

    Would African-Americans of decades past ever DREAM it would be possible to have one of their own as POTUS?  Women got the vote after years of struggle against a similarly broken system.  How about the pursuit of gay rights?  Would the rioters at a New York gay bar, rebelling against repression at the hands of the NYPD in 1969, ever think their struggle would be directly acknowledged in a presidential inaugural address?  That change happened only because thousands organised, fought and kept on fighting for decades.

    Change happens, but only if WE organize, fight, fight more and NEVER give up, and keep the pressure applied for as many years, as many decades as it takes.

    The intrinsic nature of Power is such that those who seek it most are least qualified to wield it.

      Or the Class War, which ensures that we will not address Climate Change.

      There are issues we can wait generations to address.

      Some we can't, and for those, the current system is no solution whatsoever.

      The Class, Terror and Climate Wars are indivisible and the short-term outcome will affect the planet for centuries. -WiA "When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill..." - PhilJD
