There is a time before every great society rises where people recognize their true oppressors and in unity have become fed up with the status quo. When the injustices of authority have become common and freedom has become a rarity that is when good men can no longer sit idly by and watch mad men burn the world down with their disregard for the human spirit. We live no doubt in complex times, and they will assuredly not become more simplistic, but this is why change can no longer be put off. For as long as anyone can remember politicians have been kicking issues down the road, applying band-aid fixes to problems on the scale of brain aneurysms. The truth is: we have reached the end of the road, we have left the road, walked down the pier, and we now stand at the edge of a great chasm. The choice before us however complex it may seem is in fact very simple. We can choose to make the same mistakes generations before us have, and we will watch our great society crumble, we will witness all the things we cherish and honor vanish from our sight. Or another choice: we can bite the bullet, and defend freedom from those who seek to vanquish and its promoters.
