Yeah, most of you what sparked this question.

I'm not really asking for concrete answers, but I am looking for some thoughts, one way or the other.

Personally, I'm an advocate for activism, even when I don't agree with what the people are rallying for. I think it's a cool thing when people rally for a common belief.

Thoughts are welcome, but keep it mature.

I second that. I mean people should be able to at least fight what they believe in. They'd like support for their belief from others who believe in what they're fighting for.

As long as people don't go too fucking crazy about it, then I would let it be.

Activism is ok. It can be a cool thing when it's not creating total chaos. Some activists can get annoying as shit, though, when they try to force things on you.

Couldn't have put it better myself. I think activism is a good thing as long as that line is not crossed. Parade your ideals, I say. Political movements or, dare I say, the US Revolution?

It just fries me to see people take things like that for granted. *Cough*

There is a huge loss of patriotism in the U.S these days. As a whole, people in the U.S don't give a shit about their country unless they're going to be affected by it in a negative way. Personally, I love America despite its obvious flaws. So activists in that area I do appreciate.

Other activist activity like promoting black power, white power, etc. I do not support. Many black people are still sore from the whole slavery thing and the Jim Crow Laws. You guys realize, the reason that the majority of people in ghettos are latino and black are because the put themselves there. A lot of ghettos were established in the 1900s to promote black power and other racial power. They wanted to discriminate themselves really.

There are also a lot of union activists that really go overboard with trying to shut down places and such. Activism is split between me, really. I usually can't 100% agree with any popular worldly idea.

I'm a fan of activism. Activism is why American exist, it's why we have the 20th amendment, it's why America functions. Activism is an excellent way to reveal your thoughts on a situation and let people know that you're serious about his issue.

@Strider Pent: I'm sure there are some patriotism left in America. People are constantly rallying up against Barack Obama's and Congress's actions because they want to change America for the better. Remember the Tea Party boycott back in April, 2009?

Excellent point you bring up about the 20th amendment and such. However, the Obama stuff is mainly convenience issues and not patriotism.

I'll meet you halfway on the comment of patriotism. I'm a right-wing conservative and am highly against Obama, but I will agree that it is not patriotism. I don't view it as a convenience issue either. I think it's just a bunch of people who rallied against Obama for issues such as his health care reform.

Well sure, not everyone is concerned the same way. Still, a lot of convenience issues have provoked the American public into swinging partially Republican this mid term. America has become very fickle in that we wanted change so bad two years ago, but now we're saying "back off" to Obama.

This is why I'm an independent. I can't stand how ignorant these two parties have become towards each other. Even as a right-wing or left-wing, you'd have to agree with me on this fact.

I'd say something snide, but I'm not going to bring myself to that site's level.

Last time I checked Scandinava was pretty bitchin' where everybody accepted each other, so that's obviously not true.

That's Scandinavia. In America, both parties are equally ignorant of each other, shooting down each other's ideas without a second look. And we can't forget Jamaica who only likes Obama because he's black and because he's a liberal.
