You do NOT agree, I must therefore assume, that the present System is rife with injustice; causes a degradation of society (because its laws are too complicated and are unenforceable); and produces long term grevious and regrettable emotional problems for our children? You do NOT believe the lives of non custodial parents and their families are presently being ruined–and the children made to suffer!–because of undue burdens placed upon them by that Society of caseworkers, social workers, lawyers, judges, and our unrelenting media? I thought these things were common knowledge to the members of our club, but perhaps I am mistaken?
It is true, as you say: humans are the cause and solution to our problems. Do you feel as Kierkegaard, such that: “Twaddle, rubbish, and gossip is what people want, not action…The secret of life is to chatter freely about all one wishes to do and how one is always being prevented–and then do nothing?”
Personally, I am tired of hearing the stories of untold numbers of persons affected by this misguided System. Are we nothing but support groups for victims of the evil Society, or are there ANY of us who are willing to take action? Jefferson puts it nicely, when he ponders: “Timid men…prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty.” (Jefferson). But not so nicely, Paine says my feelings about inaction more precisely: “The heart that feels not now, is dead: The blood of his children shall curse his cowardice, who shrinks back at a time when a little might have saved the whole, and made THEM happy.” And further: “‘Its the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves of his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.”
Insofar as “anarchy” and civil disobedience have in common a disruption of the status quo, I am indeed calling for radical changes to be accomplished as quickly as possible–and with the most pressing and immediate level of urgency necessary. Voting against the Majority is a fruitless effort. Ask anyone who has been doing it a considerable period about their success, and you will find they’ve had little or none!
I am sorry if my style of writing offends some of you, or you do not like all of my extremist opinions. I am only trying to encite and arouse the readers, and members, so they will join me and make a stand for the right. What I think is “strange” is that no one will join me! How long will you all remain pansies, patsies, pushovers, and wimps?
No, the solution is not simple. I suggest we as a nationwide body begin paying support on our own terms, rather then those of the government. Pay every other month, for example, in an act of defiance until we are heard and the laws are finally changed. If we made our payments ahead of time, or slightly late, it could cause no harm for the children and, at the same time, send a powerful message to the lawmakers. Then, if we had a list of our grievances, and a Committee of the Whole to present them for us, and citizens willing to work with the government to change laws, abolish laws, and create new ones, perhaps then something will be accomplished? Do you suppose there are enough Humans among us for such a solution to have a chance? Perhaps my ideas are strange to many of you? By posting my message(s), I am only seeking to find those of you who are like-minded, and are tired of the cheap talk and false sympathies of these groups who do nothing for our cause.
