just today i was thinking about revolutions. i googled it. one hundred and twenty seven million hits for revolution. from dogs to music to churches to governments… there seem to be revolutions happening all over. well, at least one hundred and twenty seven million worth!
i began thinking more and more about what a revolution really means. the dictionary on opie (aka iBook G4) tells me that it’s “a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system.” wow, that’s deep!
but seriously, is a revolution really needed? what government do we need to overthrow? what new social order needs to put into place? it all sound high maintenance to me.
in thinking about these questions i realized that no, we do not need to overthrow our government. afterall we do live in the USA… home of freedom that millions of people risk their lives to have a part of the promised land.
