The Absolute Truth.
 -- Me Again     
    Yes, well, this is what all revolutionairies say, but after the old order is toppled, there is no guarantee the new order will be what people fought for (e.g. French Revolution & Russian Revolution).
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Archer, said well. Further, the question to be asked is, what is it that we need to become? To become free we must not remain liberals/conservatives, democrats/republicans, socialists/fascists, etc. To remain mere chattel and slaves, we need to become nothing else, we're there (-; speaking collectively, not personally, of course ;-).
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Change is always inevitable - as Einstein said "Change is the only constant factor in the Universe"
     -- RobertSRQ     
    Great quote apropos are need to change the way we do things in reference to energy.
     -- Waffler, Smith, Arkansas     
    "Thank you Alex, I'll take the bleeding obvious for 10,000." Sorry, but this falls in the self-evident category.
     -- Goop, Gloucester     
    Who decides when we need to be something different? If it is our selves that make the determination then are we really being changed? If it is Waffler's Global court then we will be changed into slaves. Quote lacks any inspirational qualities.
