When do you think this will come and in what form?
In our lifetime? Hopefully.
and it's the only one we ever needed.
the english civil war.
What came out of that? NOTHING.
Plus that was in old Engles. Unless you count the highland clearances as a revolution, then we've not had anything really I guess.
Oh yeah I forgot I don't know history. Oh well. I shall continue to make assumptions.
a revolution? lolz josh!
english civil war brought us a parliament and begun our constantly evolving democracy. because we have an unwritten constitution we can live as free as is possible. prob wif the labour government is the rise of excessive legislation. if it gets real bad then there might be call for a rev. :-P
How about I revolve my fist in your face, you fiend.
eurg..erugh..uuuuurgghhhhhhh....! *spit* aw man it's, jeez, it's on the carpet *guh*. i need to get this up. i'll use the dyson *zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz* i'll use 1001 now. *scoosh* *fizz* *scrape scrape scrape*. the dyson smells.
4u2btru is not likely.
to the mindset of the past. take the right to bear arms or even more significantly - sharia law. what is it about our system that is oppressive?
written constitutions in general do not exactly equal crazy guns politics or sharia.
we had a parliament for a long time before the Civil War, one which only became much more representative with the nineteenth century reform acts almost 200 years later.
Constitutional historians tend to focus more on the Glorious Revolution of 1688 which more clearly amended the "king in parliament" style of government.
End of message.
Awesome band name.
Was that when they cut the price of shortbread to make way for the new varieties?
that our revolution occurred in the American colonies.
get driving licenses and make their peace with David Cameron
i'm fairly positive
in the form of a very long and orderly queue.
do it. you'll go down in history. Josh off Drowned in Sound, liberator of Scotland.
free higher education financed by the english?
PLEASE CAN YOU START A REVOLUTION.
you bloody englishman
too well pronounced.
no? sorry. that was embarassing for all of us, i think.
i assure you, it would be really amusing if you could hear it
i reckon. hahahaha not probably.
i hate my voice. it's "cute". also, i'm pretty sure my imitation scottish accent is fairly masculine, as i've never really heard many girls with scottish accents. which actually, paired with my cute voice is probably all the more amusing. but yeah, no. hysterical though it might be.
cause i wouldn't do it, and then someone (prolly fucking lemonbrickcombo, basically) would be like, "i imagine you to sound like james earl jones" and then someday, years from now, i'd be travelling in the UK (or living in Scotland!) and meet people and then my voice would be a huge letdown too. because seriously, how many people in the world sound like james earl jones? what a stupid thing to say, you know? especially since i'm a girl.
I HAVE A DREAM.
directed at our occupation government Alexandra.
Now you're going to tell me that you like spam too?
WHERE HAS EVERYONE'S TASTEBUDS GONE?
that YOU PEOPLE drink.
but it *is* better than sunny d. which we people also drink. (not me though)
which startling revelations came before this?
1 Then I seed a differnt angel! He comed down from Ceilin and he wuz wearin a cloud and he had a rainbow for a hatz. His face wuz like the sun and his legz wuz fire!!!2 He holded a book. It wuz open. He standed on the sea with one footz and teh land wit teh other!3 He shoutid and it wuz rly loud. Seven thunderz sez somethingz 2.4 I wuz gonna rite it down but sumbuddy from Ceilin sez "no!"
But I guess you could examine in it then sense that revolution has always been an afterthought throughout all time.
THE ENEMY, TIME, IN ALL OF US.
oh and also tibet while you're at it for gods sake.
it doesn't even have a patron saint... it's just an economic union that's past it's sell by date...
as most western governments/administrations are not as malign as international concepts such as international finance and trading and consumerism. These are the things that need revolting against, unfortunately most humans are ignorant of the true human anemy that is most likely to destroy us.
this is unlikely to be undertaken by the masses as they are enthralled and enslaved by advertising, false flattery, and unecessary personal gain fuelled by the idea of personal standing rather than that of community.
Although I dont hold out much hope I do sometimes hope that some governments might make a stand somewhere against some anti human monetary tendancies, there is not much hope for this because even if some politicians might start out being noble, it doesnt take long for mammon to recruit enough politicians (via corruption and via the need to get a mandate from an ignorant populace enslaved to mammon) who will be enough to prevent governments revolting against our daemon nemisis
revolutions are not revolutions unless they are against an appropriate 'thing' Otherwise they are just tantrums.
So to revolt what you must do is
1) do not seek to own a fabulous or even 'nice' car.
2) Do not take pride in possessions, unless that possession can provide you with joy (like music making) or childish giggling or breathless wows (toys are not as bad as status symbols)
Do not support commercial capitalist activity other than we now need it to survive from day to day, do not advocate its 'validity' beyond its current necessity (we got manouevered into needing it, we could have had a society that would work without it, its just that we dont)
3) Become a survivalist, become caperble of surviving without 'civilisations' support as much as you can.
sorry if you want to bash a few politicos heads, but you cant really, specially if you've voted for any of em, cos basically that is a vindication for a process which you are now suggeting you might want to smash.......its problematic because you wont be able to break any heads in this sort of revolution without being hippocritical (unless you do stuff like I said first)
did that not happen in Britain? I dunno, I'm rubbish at history and stuffs.
