Greetings African Empress and Ayinde,
and apologies for interjecting in this dialogue, i hope that the flow of ideas does not suffer as a result.
Empress, you mention that it would be of importance for your 20 hypothetical whites in the stadium to be be actively engaged in the destruction of the current system (the stadium in this case). My question is this. By what means will the stadium fall? You are spot on about the vast majority of people not caring about most of the things we talk about on this board. After all, they have their jobs to worry about and a new car to buy!?! So we cannot realistically hope for some kind of popular revolt. So what is left?
Violent overthrow would historically seem to be ineffective in the long term. Do we create some form of parallel society and wait until everyone wakes up? Do we educate and flood the system with information?
It will be hard for the people outside of the stadium to break in, while there are a lot of them, the people inside have access to the most terrible weapons imaginable, and have stolen all of the gold and food. For their efforts to gain access to have the best chance of success they will need collaborators on the inside to help to unlock the gates and stop the weapons being used.
How do we pull the stadium down?
Sorry for hijacking your analogy....
Love and life
