Empires always collapse. The corporate empire will collapse too. The only problem is how long it takes and whether it's destroyed the planet completly by the time it does finally collapse.

Corporations do not oppress society, for corporations are the very brainchild of society. I often think, what if everyone just didn't do ANYTHING for a week our four days, or even just a weekend? And I mean no washing the car, planning what we're gona do later, driving anywhere, even fasting would be appropriate. Most people would probably be driven partly insane, or become very depressed. What is everone rushing around for? This society is so mixed up in a grossly intense striving for security. That is why money is important. Addiction to security is, I think, the main problem here. I think the haiku that catclysm posted is important, because I find more and more people who are questioning how society operates. I think maybe it is possible to slowly change the paradigm. Without us, corporate control will slowly dissolve.

When 9-11 came, I was not surprised, nor was I afraid. I don't know why it was - I don't think it was just callousness or stoicism. I think it is because I try to keep the acute sense of insecurity that is inherent in our lives. Perhaps it will be something cataclysmic that shakes the human race out of it's stupor and forces it to look imminent death in the face, since, after all, death is always imminent. Unfortunately 9-11 didn't do that - quite the opposity really. We as Americans have become even more addicted to security and even more smug. It is sad, I do not know how it is going to change. But I will focus on changing myself; I think that's the best I can hope to accomplish.

Peace Earthlings.

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2002/apr2002/indi-a24_prn.shtml

This article was written on April 24th so I don't know what effect the protest had, I'd assume it made some sort of dent. However, it is the sheer size of the protest(10 million people!!) that I find to be incredible. There was just a large rally in Washington, DC(100,000people) to show their support for Israel, which I'm a bit confused the reasoning behind that. The US government isn't doing shit about Sharon and his actions, so the rally appeared to be more of supporting our governmen't stance with Israel. I was raised Jewish and yet I see no reason in supporting Sharon's plan to wipe out Palestine under the guise of "protecting Israel and fighting the war on terrorism". Anyways, this is just another example of the people supporting the US govt. which I'm sure the govt. is pleased with.

Does anyone here think there's even enough people in the country fed up with the government to be able to make a noise? I've been talking with basically anyone who's interested about the US government and for every 1 person who says, "I agree, our government is fucked up and they're fucking us" I get 10 'good americans' telling me to "get out of this country if you hate it so much, you: traitor, terrorist sympathizer, you're worse than terrorists, anti-american, more dangerous than terrorist, you're what's wrong with this country, liberal cocksucking treehugging fag".

Peace folks.

We all experience a kind of "mind control" if we have good parents who encompass us and shield us from adversity while we grow to be free thinkers.

That's only in an ideal situation though........the problem is that we are prone to mind control and this is bad if the person in charge is not in our best interest. We need to be free thinkers but "seeing it like it is" as a free thinker, tends toward a cynical outlook on life.......
Finding something positive to believe in and so be controled to some extent by, is necessary unless we want to take the harshness of life on the chin and try to stay positive.
Is the glass half empty or half full?
Perception and belief will determine the answer.........

They have created "a prison for our minds. A prison that we cannot smell, or taste or touch."

Okay Insomniac, I think you watched Fight Club and Matrix one too many times.
