The people's call to arms should not be one of open conflict or wielded weaponry, for upon that playing field they would suffer the most resounding defeat against this oppression. Our liberation rests with us, to be sure, but not within our capacity to fight or struggle. It rests in our mere willingness to shake the sleep from our eyes and see that "freedom," such as it has long been defined FOR us, is really only a thin and anemic rendering of something so much greater in potential, something yet to be fully realized by the human race. What yet lies dormant in the collective human psyche is the realization that self responsibility; far from being some inconvenient burden, is actually the most hallowed of ground. It is the very foundation itself of a brand of human Freedom and Liberty which, if ever given its own mind and room to run, would look back upon our historical definitions of 'freedom' as not much more than a proudly-carried, prison ID card, issued to us by a relative handful of societal creators and usurpers, who have always been most happy to do all our thinking for us. WE THE PEOPLE are the ones we're waiting for!"
