"If you can't win, change the rules." this is what we should do with financial crisis.

Peter Diamandis in the one of his talks said "If you can't win, change the rules" and this is what we should do with financial crisis. We have got now much better technology and ideas so we should use these all of things to make better future. We should stop listen politicians and we should just take care about ourself. In this way we can use the Internet as a tool for direct democracy which could change the rules and could let us win.

    I think you're hitting on something very powerful and important. As time continues to move forward in the age of the internet, it is difficult not to notice the ineffectual nature of our "representative" government. Comedian Joe Rogan talks a lot about this on his podcast (along with an assortment of other fascinating explicit themes), "The Joe Rogan Experience," about how eventually the greater internet will eventually be the government; that is, we the people will govern.

    At this point, there is no sense in speaking of war; if and when the revolution occurs it will be the voice of the many simply overwhelming the status quo, and its nature will be peaceful.
