Imagine you live in a town with only one widget factory.

One day you go on a tour of Widgets Inc. and realize their entire business is terrible. The equipment is falling apart, workers are asleep at their posts, and the floor manager is in the back room snorting cocaine off the secretary’s taint.

Most people would ignore an experience like this, but a savvy businessman would recognize the looming failure of Widgets Inc. as a massive opportunity. No matter how big and secure the company may seem today, their position is fragile. Someone is going to come along and eat their lunch.

This is how Americans should view their current political elite.

What Is A Revolution?

Revolution seems like a big, scary word. It shouldn’t. Political revolutions occur often throughout history, and they don’t necessarily involve violence.

Revolutions occur when influential people are disappointed in the quality of their government, and start working to transfer stewardship from one ruling class to another.

The goals of a revolution are broad and far-reaching. At minimum, a true revolution will require the complete liquidation of the Democratic and Republican parties, and massive reforms to every branch of government, our financial system, academia, and mass media.

Who will benefit from a political revolution in the United States?

Revolutions result in winners and losers. Some people and groups will find their status elevated, others will not.

The people who stand to gain the most from a changing of the guard in Washington are flyover Americans: white, middle-class, Christian, Republicans, i.e. the most hated and shat-upon people in America today, who nonetheless are her most avid supporters. Middle America has been reduced to a spiritually empty shell of itself, and members of this Vaisya class are almost completely powerless in the modern world. A just revolution would elevate their position to one of basic respect.

Young Americans, awash in student loan debt, unable to afford middle-class lifestyles, and doomed to pay the financial and spiritual debts of the Baby Boom generation for the rest of their lives, are a likely reservoir of support for a political revolution.

The elite of Silicon Valley, as the most likely candidates for our next ruling class, are also likely to benefit from revolution.

The armed forces, disillusioned with a decade-plus of watching their friends die in utterly pointless wars and primarily populated by the Vaisya class, probably wouldn’t stand in anyone’s way. N.B., the United States Armed Forces officers have sworn an oath to defend the formal Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. This probably justified a legal military coup in 1933, and certainly could justify one today.

And who would lose? The Washington-based political establishment; the academics and journalists who make their living reinforcing its legitimacy; the freak show social justice warriors and protected fringe classes terrorizing the kulaks on their behalf. Certainly no one whose career prospects are worth losing any sleep over.

What Would A Revolution Look Like?

It’s 2015, so forget about storming the Whitehouse with brickbats and torches. An ideal revolution wouldn’t require any violence at all. It’s possible that pre-revolutionary conditions could be established entirely through the internet.

Consider: what would happen if 75% of property-owning Americans verifiably supported an online petition requesting the federal government to abdicate all power and revert complete sovereign authority to each of the fifty states? There are other options. We could nominate a worthy man – say Peter Thiel, or Arnold Schwarzenegger – to the position of absolute monarch. We could choose declare war on an absurdly well-governed sovereign, like Switzerland or Lichtenstein, and immediately surrender, inviting them to conquer and administrate us.

Personally, I like all these ideas, but the simple dissolution of the USA into fifty independent nations is my favourite. It’s a simple, clean, humble admission of the complete failure of the American experiment, and it provides a nonviolent resolution to the Red/Blue conflict, letting each state’s population govern themselves as they see fit.

Would the armed forces stand in their way? Would Washington march against state militias, dissident army factions,  and citizens across the country, annihilating tens of millions of Vaisya Americans in a new civil war bloodier than any the world has ever seen? Maybe. But if so – if the ruling class would actually wage this war, commit a genocide against people who just want to be left alone, to go their own way, live their lives, and be free of their coastal overlords – well, then we’re probably fucked anyways.

In the absence of a revolution, here are the people on track to inherit power:

These people – and of course, those who actually control them –  must be stopped. That is our generation’s burden, and it is our great opportunity.

How To Prepare For A Revolution

Arguably, a revolution is already occurring in the American mind. People are losing faith in the status quo. By reading and sharing this post, you are already contributing to a pre-revolutionary environment. The only question is: will you be a part of what comes next?

The success or failure of any revolution will be a function of the quality of people supporting it. A revolution led by healthy, successful, intelligent, disciplined men will win. If you want power, become worthy of it.

If you believe that America in 2015 would benefit from a peaceful revolution – and quite frankly, between unnecessary wars, mass surveillance, population replacement, fiscal insolvency, the breakdown of family and community, a vanishing middle class, and the widespread elevation of depraved lunatic social justice warriors to positions of power and influence, you’d be crazy not too – the best thing you can do is work on becoming the best possible version of yourself.
