the machine of government

This quote struck me today with the upcoming occupy Portland protests, and with other things i have been reading as of late. “If… the machine of government… is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law.  ~Henry David Thoreau,On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, 1849″

I am thankful for the things that we have available to us I mean lets be honest here this is not a 3rd world country, its the top consumer. We have a lot available to us but we complain about it all.

is it the nature of complaint or is it the desire to control that demands that we keep our government in check. I think its the will to strive.. yes strive not survive… i don’t think most politicians have any idea what its like to feel like you need to survive.

The machine of government has created a class divided system, and it continues to divide us, into even more defined classes.
