    Well Older Hippies...I must ask...do you think that the younger generation will ever be able to re-start where you left off...the time in this world is right (politically)...but do you think we have what it takes?

    Yes I believe the younger generation has what it takes.I also believe that if and when the govt starts up the draft again,this time including women,we will see the revolution begin.

    Oh god yeh!!!

    Get involved in as many good causes as you can... push the system:)

    Check out the protest forum!

    If us silent majority begin to get vocal and take our views to the streets we could start a significant movement!

    Love Clairexxx

    Not likely.

    Your even weaker than we were, and we were pretty damn weak.

    It's unrealistic to expect anyone raised, in a culture of obese materialism, to ever possess the inner strength to overcome our collective fears and insecurities.

    Even if the Oil taps are turned off, that merely sets us back a hundred years without changing the impulsive desires that got here to begin with.

    The Rebellion Of This Generation Is An Internal One.

    Its A Battle Against Ones Self.

    You Can Start Anytime.

    You say you want a revolution number II
    Well you know we already tried to change the world
    You tell me that it's president bush vs evolution
    Well you know we all want to change the world
    But when you talk about destruction in Iraq
    Don't you know that you can count me out
    Don't you know it's gonna be alright
    Because I'm going to amsterdam
    Alright alright

    You say you got a real solution
    Well you know we'd all love to see the plan senator kerry
    You ask me for a contribution
    Well you know we're doing what we can
    But when you want money for people with minds that hate
    All I can tell you is brother you have to wait
    Because I'm going to Amsterdam

    Alright alright

    You say you'll change the constitution
    Well you know we all want to change your head
    You tell me it's the institution
    Well you know you better free your mind instead
    But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
    You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
    Don't you know it's gonna be alright
    Alright alright in amsterdam

    Alright alright alright alright
    alright alright alright alright
    Alright alright alright alright
    alright alright alright alright
    Alright alright alright alright
    alright alright alright alright
    Alright alright alright alright
    alright alright alright alright
    Alright alright alright alright
    alright alright alright alright
    Alright alright alright alright
    alright alright alright alright
    Alright alright alright alright
    alright alright alright alright
    Alright alright alright alright
    alright alright alright alright



    And, if you young people truly want to start a revolution. Let me know.Because, I'll bring the Gator-Aid.

    its certainly possible.
     
  16. I agree homebudz. Seems like the revolt really took hold back in the 60's, when the kids continued to be drafted and shipped over to Vietnam. Revolution won't start in this country until people are FORCED to fight in a war they don't believe in. Right now, the war is affecting only those who chose to be over there, by way of voluntary enlistments. It's going to take a mandatory draft to stir things up, and I'm sure the Bush folks realize this, that's why they aren't pushing for the draft right now....but maybe they will after November if the bastard is re-elected.

    I really do think that's where it's at now. Whether y'all know it consciously or not - somewhere in you, you know that change begins within. Change your thinking, open your heart and you can change the world. It's quieter, less dramatic, not as visible but it's still going on. Lots of people believe there's a shift in energies, in consciousness at this time. I believe any revolution that happens now will come from within many many people and that their beliefs and hopes for peace, a loving world, and world-wide unity will greatly influence the collective consciousness.

    Of course, were there a draft again - I think, uh, forget the poster's name who brought up this point, but that definitely might create a very visible rebellion!!

    I have a question for the person posing the original question - do *you* think the younger (high-school, post high school) generation has it in them to band together to try to change this society and culture? I mean, look at WTO in Seattle - I took part in that and while it warmed my heart to see so many people from, clearly, many different walks of life and generations (like old time Labor and Environmentalists) coming together to demand a better world - how many of the most active and how many of the organizers were in their teens and twenties? Many, many!!!

    I'm not quite sure....I haven't been out there enough to tell you. Where I'm from, no...we could not. The people of my town are of that "stereotypical American" there are very few that aren't clouded by materialism... I want to see what's out there before I could determine whether or not we could start a revolution for our generation....but for now...I am finding my own inner light... hopefully I can find others who are themselves
