Inner and Outer Revoloution

Revolt - destroy corpocracy before it destroys the ability of the Earth to support life
How amazing it is to see articles like this by Naomi KLein in the New Statesman, scientists calling for revolt and Russel Brand making mincemeat of Jeremy Paxman. A revolution is definitely coming - it will come in the form of collapse, devastating collapse of environmental systems, the ice sheets for one, and collapse of the financial system for another before long anyway.
I'd just add  that our way of life in the developed world is part of the problem. I'm all for protesting about fracking AND let's stop using cars too. It isn't us and them, it's just us. While we still use the convenience of the fossil-fueled way of life, the supermarkets and motorways, we are part of the system and complicit in all its hellishness.
The governments and corporations need us more than we need them. It's time to for everyone, everywhere to build a very simple, Earth friendly way of life. The other revolution is the inner revolution, thinking for ourselves, finding our individual power to make change by our own actions, whatever that is for each of us.
