: Damn straight! Here in the United States here, in the last 30 years the Republican party, abetted by conservative Democrats, have passed law after law, executive order after executive order, and regulation by regulation, slowly bringing the country ever rightward so that now, what used to be considered far rightwing is now mainstream.

This is what it's about and while the US right have CIA assistance, we should learn from their example and pretend we're fighting the enamies of ethical people in the ninteeth century.

: Change over time is still change.

What's more, is it's far more premanent and difficult to remove, like an old or engrained stain.

: : Of course they dont and that's one of the reasons they defeat the left wing so eaily and are so successful at lamponing us as loonies.

: I'm reminded of an early AIDS activist chant: "AIDS cure now!" Even though I share that desire, simply demanding something immediately doesn't mean it can be done, and in fact make the demander appear immature and foolish.


: Keep in mind that insurrection=violence and you'll understand why many people, especially people with children, want nothing to do with it.

Insurrection is suicide if it is norhing more than violent resignation to the enamies might.
