The Individual Is Rising

An excerpt: 

History has shown, repeatedly, that the human spirit cannot be conquered.  You may be able to suppress the human spirit for one hundred years or so, but never forever.  The human spirit will always rise.
History has also shown that the collectivist tyrants will do everything in their power to suppress the human spirit and maintain power, and the present day situation is no different.  There are now cameras on every stop light and federal taps on every cell phone for this reason. 
Federally funded SWAT teams are now operational in nearly every town and city, and heavy duty military vehicles and equipment are deployed in every major metropolitan city for the same reason.
The PATRIOT Act, which effectively repealed the 4th amendment, was passed for this reason.  The National Defense Authorization Act, which declared the United States a battleground and every American a terrorist suspect, was passed for this reason.  The Department of Homeland Security has purchased millions of rounds of hollow point ammunition, which is illegal under international law, for this reason.  The REAL ID act, which requires States to upload every single American's photograph into a federally monitored facial recognition system, was implemented for this reason.
The power elite are not content to go quietly into the night, to be filed away into the dustbin of history's mistakes so seamlessly. 
Instead, they are prepared to use force to maintain their lordship over the individual.  They are prepared to meet the individual on the battlefield.  What has completely gone over their head, however, is that the individual does not fight on the battlefield of force, but rather the battlefield of thoughts and ideas.
Victor Hugo once said "No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come."
Our time has come.
The revolution is already in motion.  It is a peaceful and intellectual revolution - not one of violence or force, and that is why it will succeed.  The collectivist power elite are ill-prepared to fight on the intellectual battlefield because the results of their ideology are in: they failed and they can no longer convince the individual otherwise.
Brushfires of liberty are burning in the minds of men once again.  And what is so amazing is that this liberty revolution is not constrained to America this time; it is world-wide.  Not only are Americans awakening to the long-forgotten principles of liberty, but so are individuals all over the world.  There is a fierce anti-Euro, anti-collectivist movement sweeping all of Europe as these words are being written.  Meanwhile, much of Asia is becoming more free-market oriented by the day.
History has demonstrated that dying paradigms are sometimes capable of holding on for much longer than anyone can believe.  But they can never last forever.  The current paradigm may be able to linger for a while longer, but make no mistake about it - a major paradigm shift is currently underway.
And make no mistake about it - the individual is rising.
