People in the comments wishing for a new revolution should never forget this one fact, you know, in case a new one does occur so we don't **** it up again:
"Through revolution, the abandonment of personal despotism may be engendered and the end of profit -seeking and domineering opression may occur, but never a true reform of the state of mind. Instead, new prejudices, just like the old ones, will serve as the guiding reins of the great, unthinking mass."

The man is right, even during a lifetime that witnessed the American revolution and all of its optimistic promise, as well as the French revolution, he still knew how it would turn out. People talk about revolution, but they don't realize that humans are sheep by nature.
You see groups on facebook about this, usually depicting the Guy Fawkes/"anonymous" style, calling themselves "truth seekers" and warning about Big Pharma and Illuminati. But when you try to argue a scientific point, then apparently you must be either one of the brainwashed sheep or your being paid by corporations, so they discard everything you say whilst linking you to the same sensationalist fear mongering NaturalNews articles as their sources, unaware that the site exists solely to sell them products. Two groups have even blocked me from commenting, because I pointed out misinformation, on pages made to bitch about government's supposed oppression of free speech and choice.

tl;dr - New prejudices will always rise in place of the old, even for anti-corporation and humanistic movements. And subsequent generations will inevitably breed oppression.

That may be. And it may always be, but what the hell does it make me if I don't try.

nah, you're sheeple because you don't think the way I think.
