Isn't it illegal to protest without legal papers and a permit?

I don't understand ... what is being protested and what do they hope to achieve? Looking at the site, I just see a bit of a "rawr, we're angry, lets show the government we're angry". Not only do I not see what is being opposed, I don't see any mention of them proposing a solution. If their objective is to overthrow the government (lol), what next if they succeed? Without a solution planned in advance, the result would be a lack of order, which many people will take advantage of.

No matter who is elected President, many people will complain saying they're running the government all wrong. Claiming from behind their TV idling on the couch that they can run the government better. And then these people that blame the entirety of the economy on the government... That isn't the definition of an economy at all, every individual has a responsibility in what constitutes the economy.

Also, no government ever will meet everyone's ideals, unless you begin to strip down freedom to force ideal living like in most utopia-turned-dystopia fiction. Seeing as that there's plenty of governments that are yet worse, I wouldn't want to strip down the government to rebuild it, a slow progression is appropriate. Start with something simple like ceasing to show interest in primary parties and vote for others. As more and more people progress that way, it becomes less and less of a "wasted vote", and you achieve momentum.

I know the economy sucks, even applying to lowly places like Walmart there is somehow no room for more employees. I've been jobless for a long time. Most of my meals consist of flour, butter, and milk, with other flavorings I can find lying around added. Other food expenses look less idea if I want to afford anything else. My mother who has been kindly supplying, who has worked many years for the advance technology company Lockheed Matin, is also at risk of losing her job as the government is less and less able to fund such a company. If she loses her job, I'll probably downgrade to eating just flour and water. Should it carry on to losing a place to live as well as internet, well I can't pursue my career any more as my art is purely digital, thus I'll cease to have reason to live.

But I don't complain about the government. If I can do better than the people who spent much on being educated for government positions, then I should try to get into the government. But that's not my role.

In my eyes, the economy is still collapsing. We can push it up and support it a little longer, but all structural integrity can no longer withstand modern needs. As such, collapse is inevitable without need for forcing it. We need a new economic model, but with how clingy people are, a full collapse is the easiest route as no alternate options will be left. This protest does not carry with it the end solution, so it achieves nothing original.

I'm not hallucinating, I read it on a palm card last year when I went to Youth Rights Fair. Do you think the police won't do anything if a whole bunch of people just march down a street and blocked traffic?

Fuck off loser

I can't until martial law occurs and revolution takes place. The chaos and destruction that will follow will be highly entertaining. Peace is boring.

I've been waiting for martial law since I first discovered what it is back when I was even younger than I am now. Stuff like this is exciting, and indeed, highly entertaining. I certainly hope it affects brits like me somehow.

You know... Politics sucks.. However US politics.. Urgh... Don't even get me started.. A very good example of wannabe democracy. Obviously politics does not really work anywhere. But in the US it is simply an outright media war. I am from the US, however sometime around my 22nd birthday I grew a brain and moved to Europe. And never looked back. (FYI I am not living in Amsterdam smoking pot every other hour-.-)

I can't wait until all Hell break loose. The day everything collapses into total failure and chaos will become one of the most entertaining days of my life.

This is a result of democracy but under that lies capitalism the system is flawed due to fact that people themselves are flawed they're corrupt and filled with greed such as lobbyist, politicians, corporations and possibly more that will eventually start popping up.

Note: This not a rebirth of democracy, that is an illusion that people forced upon themselves.There was never much of a democracy under it all lies Capitalism the machine that we're feeding.

Rebirth of democracy?

Who cares. I'm going to go look at pictures of cats on the internet.

There will be no revolution.
