Well said/spoken/written - whatever. It is unfortunate, however, so many Americans are too spiritless for any noble form of embeddiment.

Ronw13, Yachats Or

To follow a Good Conscience tempered with compassion, to question tyranny in any form, and never side with it. A just Revolt. Some of the countercultures resentment for authority, a knee-jerk reaction brought about by socialistic rule. On the other hand, their Qadesh, Churl, baggage did more harm than good.

perpetual ? embedded in the human spirit? The rest is right.

E Archer, NYC

We can't be in a perpetual state of revolution, there's not enough energy to do that. From time to time, humankind makes a 'breakthrough' that 'revolutionizes' the way we understand something such that our very foundations are rocked. Sometimes that is enough to destroy the old ways and usher in the new. Substitute the word 'revolution' with 'being independent' and it sounds about right. There is always something remaining to fight for/against. ;-)
