The economy in the United States is in a collapse.  The Capitalist system does not work anymore; banks have become more powerful than our politicians.  The government now has a policy based around Fear and Greed.  The rich are getting richer and more powerful, while the great masses of America wallow in poverty.

Must we continue to exist in this passive state, only living to serve the rich and powerful?  Or do we, the great masses, stand up against the policies Fear, and Greed, and God?  We must break the bonds that separate us, we must pull down the centers of Greed and Fear and we must pull down the houses of God.  These borders are created to separate us into individuals where we can be controlled easier.

We must stand up, against the tyranny of the centers of Greed, and Fear, and God.  Quoting John Adams:  "People should not fear government, government should fear people."  Once we stand up to Fear, to Greed, to God, we will become united!

This being said, I advocate the collapse of the Capitalist system and the foundation of the United Socialist Federal Republic, in which the government will exist to serve the people.  Capitalism is Dead.  We must put it out of it's misery and move on toward Socialism.

The only problem is that the average citizen of the United States is...ill educated and they are too attached to the current system. They dislike anything that goes against their norm. In order to establish The United Socialist Federal Republic, a small united group of individuals must seize control and force a change, only then can the education of the average citizen take place.
See, that's precisely how it doesn't work. Yes, they may be ill-educated, attached with the system, all that. Which is hardly new. You can't seize power "on their behalf" and "force change." A small united group of individuals is inherently elitist when over the majority. That's exactly what happened with the Soviet Union and other countries. We all know how that went. Don't get me wrong-I'm for a change. However, it must be grassroots change, from the bottom up, or it just turns into another dictatorship, whether "of the proletariat" or not. Soon it's "over" the proletariat.

If the economic recession deepens, there may be an opportunity for grassroots change. Really we have to do like the IWW said: "Build the New World in the Shell of the Old." To "be the change you want to see in the world." The means are the ends, remember. You can't have a tiny elite set up a dictatorship without participation or consent of the people they're supposedly acting for. If there is to be change, it'll have to be people themselves doing it. That's always how it really works.
I understand that the great masses need to be behind this change in order for it to come about, and that the public needs to educated on the new system. There are more individuals out there that approve of this system.


The Rich and Powerful have blinded the masses. Ultimately, the Rich and Powerful will do everything in their power to see that the masses still serve them. If a "grassroots" change will come about, it still must be headed by the small grouping of individuals who are united; because the public will be far too easily swayed and the movement will end before it even began.
I'm not saying there will be no leaders. They cannot be dictators, though, which your post seemed to imply. It is possible for even "blinded" and "ignorant" people to wake up, as we've seen all over the world. Their leaders must be acting for them directly, not just claiming "we know what is best for you." We have enough of that "leadership" already.
The problem is that America actually isn't democratic, it's a Republic. People don't actually vote for their leaders, it gets filtered through the electoral college and supervoters have more of a punch than the every day guy. If we had an actual democracy, the results of the elections I feel would be much different than what they turn out as. Contrary to popular belief, a lot of Americans are unsettled with the system. It isn't really 'Americans' that spread around that democracy shit, but conservative Christian members of American society.
The expression "put to sleep" is used only for animals in the US, not for humans.
Michael Parenti summed it up the best: we have a "democracy for the few."

Someone on Huffington recently said:
"I don't think the question is about capitalism being the correct economic theory, I think the complaint is about the extreme absence of (for lack of a better phrase) noblesse oblige.

"Noblesse oblige" is generally used to imply that with wealth, power and prestige come responsibilities. ] In American English especially, the term has also been applied more broadly to those who are capable of simple acts to help another, usually one who is less fortunate.
In ethical discussion, it is sometimes used to summarize a moral economy wherein privilege must be balanced by duty towards those who lack such privilege or who cannot perform such duty. Finally, it has been used recently primarily to refer to public responsibilities of the rich, famous and powerful, notably to provide good examples of behaviour or to exceed minimal standards of decency."

And this was my response:

Capitalism doesn't encourage "noblesse oblige", it encourages economic and social predation. Capitalism centers on the notion that wealth and unearned privilege is sacrosanct. It's a sociopathic ethos in the name of looking out for number one because "he who dies with the most toys wins."

It's a social construct based on "getting ahead" in a winner-takes-all, n-person zero-sum game. As you go up the economic ladder, attitudes of self-importance and entitlement increase. This naturally follows the rate of capital accumulation, which increases at a greater rate as one moves up the income scale. And the micro mirrors the macro. But we never talk about the culture of capitalism; the culture of greed and getting ahead at all costs that is pervasive among the comfortable classes — including well-paid blue-collar union workers and union organizational leadership, which has a white male face — who think they have a “divine right” to always come first.

We have a culture of capitalism that promotes and maintains classism. We have a capitalist society that touts greed and self-centered entitlement as a virtue. We have an architecture of aggression in which capitalism’s biggest losers (poor women) are discarded, devalued, disrespected, and unacknowledged. We’re not even seen as being human enough for harm to us to matter. The culture of capitalism is centered on the notion that only the “fittest” deserve anything and to hell with those of us who have been socially and economically excluded.
We already live under a dictatorship

Hyperbole? Bad analogy? I've never lived under a dictatorship (arguably, in this case), but I have read about them. I don't see this comparison as holding water.
Banks aren't stronger than government..big business..ehh you could argue that (:

However its going to be the same situation unless your socialists government has regulations of some sort on businesses. Bleh I just don't see it working though..I'm for communism and socialism all the way honestly I just don't think you can force that on people >.>
Banks are a tool for Big Business, sorry if I did not make sense. The United Socialist Federal Republic will have government that will oversee that everyone has everything they need to survive, such as food, water, clothing, home, a job, etc.

Imagine you are a farmer and I am a carpenter, just for example. You need chairs, and I need food (ie. potatoes) I make the chairs and you make the food. The government only gets involved to transfer my chairs to you and some of your food to me. Simple, is it not?
Thats communism (: not socialism. Socialism provides the needs of people...well a good one does.. Your idea of socialism is communism and allow religion.. not good for me sorry lol. People should have thier needs provided by the government and everyone else should be working. Needs include good education, medical care, and food for everyone ect..
You misunderstand Seth. This is Socialism. Everything will be provided for the people; everyone will be equal a classless society, everyone will be equal, and free of Fear, Greed, and God. I am advocating the destruction of religion, and of the rich and powerful.

Religion is no longer needed. The Capitalist system is no longer needed. I never said anything about allowing religion.

Communism is like Capitalism it is too extreme. Socialism, however is a perfect system, where everyone will work toward the betterment of everyone.
