Alright, I must keep pushing myself to write about things- especially things that’s going on in the world, as there’s some resistances to doing that, such as that I don’t know enough or ought to do more research, but that doesn’t preclude me from speaking from where I’m at from what I understand now. And, in fact, writing can help me to get further clarity and perspective on things as well. Really, it’s a win-win.

.

So I was having a chat with my dad about this situation in Libya with Gaddafi, and it was quite a cool chat because it helped me to get some clarity on the point. Because I can see that rioting/revolting is not going to be a real solution, from the perspective that is any of the people rioting ready to/have the skills/ability to run the country? Meaning, who’s going to step in after Gaddafi gets kicked out? Or, what’s to stop another dictator?

.

Often, these types of regime changes, have been planned, wherein there’s a ‘shadow government’ that’s been prepared before hand, ready to take over once the current gov’t is taken out. I don’t know if that is the case now, if not, then who knows what will happen, because it’s not pre-planned.

.

So I was saying this to my dad, that rioting is not the solution, and he was going into the point of like ‘but it was necessary/they had no alternative’, which was cool to have this come up because it gave me the opportunity to really look at this point, because I ‘knew’ that rioting wasn’t the solution, wasn’t a solution that would ‘work’, and that the ‘they had no choice point was obviously the main justification point for the rioting and really for any rioting, for that matter, that ‘there was no other choice’.

.

So we spoke for a moment about what the government is like there, like what stops the people from just no longer participating in or being a victim of whatever that dictator was ‘doing’ to them? Well, the dictator has staff that he pays to enforce his ways on the people. In fact, he’s had to hire out because his own military’s been ditching out, not wanting to turn on their own people, and I’ve heard that some of those who’ve refused have been executed.

.

So basically, there’s killing and torturing going on as Gaddafi tries to get control of the people. So there’s going to be more of this, until perhaps Gaddafi will leave, and then, who knows what/who will step in. What is certain, is that revolting is antagonizing Gaddafi to do whatever he can, which of course means people dying and suffering, and there is no real substantial plan for what to do if/once Gaddafi is ousted.

Then we realized, that this is exactly what would happen here, in the U.S., if we were to revolt the government would take measures to control, and it would go on and on until one gives way, and there’d be suffering and death and a big mess, and we’d be no closer to a better government.

I mean, look at egypt now, this headline from an article in The Telegraph explains the point quite well: “Egypt protests: fears that the army will install a ‘new Mubarak’ to keep its power and privilege”

Therefore, rioting is no solution- because the problem is not that no one is rioting, but that the government is not being done properly- therefore the solution is to have people develop the skills necessary and to do whatever it takes to get into positions of the government and become the government and change it from within, if possible. Until the people stand up to take the place of the government, as the government, then there will always be some ‘dictator’ in charge.

.

What’s fascinating to look at is the polarity point of ‘the government’ and ‘the people’ and how we have for so long only seen these two separate points, yet not really considered what it would mean if they were not separate.

Within all this, we must do whatever it takes, we must take self-response-ability, and see how we are able to respond to the situation we are in. Revolting is not solution- it only leads to death and suffering and then hoping a new nice leader is going to pop in. At this moment it’s all done through money- a government or those with political power- it’s achieved through money- therefore by implementing an Equal Money System, everyone will have equal power, and thus no one will be able to rule another. How cool is that.
