We can only hope that what rises up from the ashes will be more just than what we see now...that is assuming the powers that be actually give a fuck about the common man's plight (they don't, and there is no evidence that they will even after the system crashes, if anything they are preparing to fuck us over even more in the future). I have a bad feeling about this....bad times seem to bring the worst out of humanity rather than bring the best out of them. Just reference the link between poverty, recession/depression and increasing crime rates. When people in general turn their back on integrity and stop caring about doing what's right and only look to pleasing themselves, there is no legislation that can be signed that will give people back their souls once they've chosen to sell out.
I don't think what rises out of a failed democracy will be more democracy, nor do I think it will be fair, rather I can look forward and seeing certain power hungry individuals taking advantage of the situation and putting measures in place to ensure that they remain in power, and they may just rig it so that anything they say goes or else, prison or death for you.
There are serious consequences to us all if everything completely goes to shit and we will loose far more than just some money over it, we will lose sanity and humanity too. This is why I say it is better to fix it before everything crashes cause once the crash happens there will be a domino effect and NOBODY will like that mess.
If your car started making odd noises under the hood I am sure you would take it to a good mechanic or fix it yourself if you are so inclined. You wouldn't keep driving it w/o it getting checked out, would you? Because rest assured when (not if) it breaks down it will be much more expensive to fix. You'd have to get a wrecker because the car will surely break down at the worst time far away from home lol. Other components may go bad too leading to more expenses than you are able to pay at the time, or worse the car breaking down on the highway could lead to an accident, you could lose your life or cause somebody else to lose theirs.
There is something to be said for preventative measures being taken and fixing what is broken rather than rocking it till the wheels fall off and disaster strikes.
Because we may not necessarally survivine the "crash" if you get what I'm saying.
Plus, I wouldn't trust most people who sat back and did nothing about it while the injustice was happening to actually rebuild anything when the smoke clears. Most don't have it in them...it requires too much work for their liking or it takes them out of their comfort zone, or they prefer to leave the hard work for others to do. we have become a self absorbed generation who has grown shortsighted and doesn't care about the legacy we leave behind for the next generation and those to come. Until that mentality changes among the current crop of people living right now, I don't expect great things to ensue.
