Is the US on brink of a revolution?
Are there tell tale signs of a civil or revolutionary war forthcoming to the US?
I don't believe an all-out revolution could happen in this Country. Having said this, I realize there are many America haters living here: there are also racial problems that may flair up in a relatively small way, and social democratic thinking does lead many to an attitude of entitlement. Take away entitlements and we may have a national problem raising from the entitlement generation(s). These areas are the only ones where I see a possibility there can be problems.
Americans, for the most part, are happy with their Country overall, and I do not think a majority can/will allow themslelves to jepordize work, family stability or the quality of life as we know it.
This is the greatest Country in the world: hands down!
God bless us.
No. Things have to get much worse for widespread resistance to break out. When it does (I say when, not if, because all societies contain the seeds of their own destruction to fall into ruin in the end, and because of the many malfeasances of the US government America's days of prosperity and peace are dwindling down), the US state will act to suppress it, brutally when that need arises. It holds such overwhelmingly violent power in its hands now that the death and destruction will be unimagineable. It cannot win, though. No modern state can survive if the people are firmly against it, not for long. The road to reform will be a rough one, however, fought tooth and nail all the way by what really has become a ruling class in the United States. I'd rather the world as we know it did not come apart in that way during my lifetime, but I recognize the selfishness of that attitude and would hope it would not guide my own views should I be mistaken in my estimate of the timeline.
No. USA is a military superpower with capitalism as its economic model. 20 years back it faced threat from USSR which is no more now. It is currently facing a serious threat from Islamic fundamentalists who are trained in Pakistan. America is pumping millions of dollars into Pakistan. Pakistan uses this money to train terrorists to target against America. In other words American money is used to kill Americans. This threat alone is not enough to produce a revolution. In fact the threat from Islamic fundamentalists will only unit the Americans.
No, we'll slowly slip into becoming a backwards Latin-American Republic with generalissimos and all. I quit watching TV when I noticed that when I turned the volume down on whatever I was watching, I couldn't tell the difference between the silly and mindless swill of a telemundo show and what US networks produce these days. Americans live in a happy fishbowl where they can stare at the pretty lights and ignore how much our government is making the world angry at us. The best of us will simply emigrate.
No, I don't see any type of armed revolution or Civil War II. However, it would not surprise me to see certain states try to secede in the next four years. This time, I see it going the way it should have the first time, to the SCOTUS.
Define "forthcoming". If an effort is not made to constrain the power of the "%1", I could see one in maybe 20-30 years.
If the "%99" can succeed in restoring power to the masses, then the odds drop greatly.
Most definately YES! We are fighting among our selves and blaming eccomics for our disagreements. The American Civil War of the 1800's was truely a fight for keepping our Constitution intact, but became known as a war over slavory because the Democracts of the South would not addmit the America was not truely free unless every one was. In todays America the only difference is that we are replace the slavory issue with, should America addopt Soscialism.
The United States has always been on the brink of revolution in many subjects and quarters. This is what brought about our existence in the first place. We are just now more capable of containing and addressing each subject carefully and with more self control, since history has proved that if we don't, we are defeated before we leave the box, in the horse race. We are a nation of rebels at heart and that is why we have laws and a constitution. Hopefully our drafted work done by the founding fathers won't be altered too badly to be effective and in our best interest as a majority, as it was so intended. There is no revolt by the people as a whole, just by separate groups who have a multitude of interests and rights at stake. Armed and hostile revolt is a thing of the past in this country in the most part.
No. I base this answer on the docu-movie hosted by Woody Harrelson called "Ethos."
Do we need a revolution of some sort? Yes. But it will never happen to "need" one.
Hard to tell....what seems to be happening from my point of view is a very divided America. Some want to keep America based very closely in accordance with the constitution and others want to bring it forward to a more European like country - some call it socialism. Many believe Socialism equals Communism....which is not true at all. And it always happens when a country is in a big crisis, many suffer.....sometimes it goes peacefully other times there are big clashes within the country when it is so divided....
