Those in power, need something to control. Without it, they're powerless. It's logical, not necessarily ethical. It's a scam, man.

I suppose in order for growth, the disadvantaged are used to fuel the needs of the advantaged. Survival of the fittest or whatever.

It sucks ass, but you can live with it, choose to do something about it or use it to carve out a life of your own. I know there are many many people who don't have a choice too, which are the one who need help the most.

The next question is how?

I think we're on the same page, dude.

Im not sure I would suggest inaction, it helps no one. I would suggest non violent protests etc. If you can act in a peaceful, proactive way, then by all means do.

It bums me out that I can't help all those that need it, I wish I had the necessary means, but I, (like most of us), can only do so much.

(Is this what is meant by Engaged Dudeism?).

As for what to do in the meantime, do what you will, but harm none.
Same for the rest of us really.

Whatever or specifically if (and it's a big if) we do anything at all it should be in the spirit of the Dude. (Or Tommy Saxondale but that's just a personal favorite.)
Imagine a global collective united in the pursuit of celebrating the spirit of the Dude in service of social awareness. Olympic swimming pools full of mister bubble along with a spray painted silhouette of the Dude doing tie chi in his robe. Hacking the presidential debates are replacing them with whale songs.
And video of a man with a paper bag over his head saying that unless the plight of the American Indians in pine ridge is addressed there will be further acts of senseless stupidity. That sort of thing. Metaphorically occupying various administration building and smoking a lot of tie stick. Most importantly the occupation of people's psychic administration building. Putting a likeable face on social action rather than the typical douchebag in dreadlocks singing folk songs.
Nothing very destructive.  We're not hero's. But what's a hero? They come in all forms. Why shouldn't this experiment we call dudeism do some research into the realm of heroics?
That sort of thing. Some men ask why.
We ask why the fuck not.
Fuck it dudes. Let's get a lane.
A fight club of stoners who go about their lives yet are part of a global collective ready and willing to make a complete spectacle of themselves in service of the higher good.

Well fuck it.
It's fun to talk about anyway.
Every dude's ambitions should exceed his reach.

Fuckin' A Bikerdude, I dig your style, man!

First rule of Dude club; Don't blather about.... what the fuck was i talking about?, is this a? Lost my train of thought there!

We could go on segway protests, (because fuck walking, right?) Hotbox administration buildings and raid their fridges if they don't take it easy, or blare out The Fuckin' Eagles, man!

A loose collective of "cells" each with their own style yet falling under one umbrella. A group of operatives who specialize in bursting into government offices dressed in penis costumes. "The Johnsons". Their motto is "Where One Falls another rises in his place" A group of hackers called the video artists. The possibilities are endless really.

I have t shirt that says "Buddhist Death Squad - revenge of the pacifists"

Maybe the hackers are the Knutson's, because no one knows who the fuck they are! (Well, maybe Da Fino, (RIP), was the head honcho, as he had information, man).

Maybe this should move to the dudeocrat party thread.

That makes 3, anyone else want on this?

That's an open question to anyone else, how many of us are there?, Where is everyone?

Abide, to me does not mean to let go, or not engage in betterment for all. It is giving into those things that must be done to make things easier and thus more enjoyable for those around, so we can get rolling

An absurdist protest movement like this would be a good response to the absurdity of current events these days. I've been fixating on the news lately instead of doing my freakin' job. That's my fault. I have traveled deep down the rabbit hole, and the crazy shit going on these days is truly surreal. Lewis Carroll must be spinning in his grave.
