“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – R. Buckminster Fuller
Reality in the 21st century is not what it was fifty years ago, let alone a hundred plus years back. Times have changed and technologies like the Internet have revolutionized social interactions within societies and the dissemination of information and ideas across the globe. As a result, activists have been forced to rethink their approach towards changing the world, as the tactics of the past are no longer the effective tools they once were.
For example, planning an armed revolution takeover of the government seems incredibly naive and suicidal today compared to its perceived effectiveness in say the 1700’s. Do people really think that a small rebel army can physically take down one of the strongest and largest militaries the world has ever known? I highly doubt it; plus, solving the problem through violence, the very same tactic that caused this mess, not only seems counterproductive but further encourages violence and division within a society. At The Last American Vagabond, we are highly skeptical of such an approach and have no desire to promote any type of violence in the name of recapturing national sovereignty, unless it’s in self-defense.
