Do you think "revolution" means a period of anarchy while we rethink everything? Does every "revolution" involve civil war and chaos, madness in the streets as the people wage war against the state? No, the Renaissance and the Enlightenment were just as much a revolution as any social uprising. It's in making the current system bow to the will of the people, recognize its own flaws, and give the opportunity to cut away the corruption, restructure, and cleanse anew for the 21st century that we should make our revolution.
America is the new Roman Empire. We are at the core of the modern global economy, and despite the world's opinion of us, we have at least enough influence to warrant an opinion of us. We've adopted and tried to refine the same principles of democracy and equality, with a modern bias. And if you think change is unlikely, then you're a part of the very reason it is. The will of the majority is POWER. If everyone stopped buying iPhone's tomorrow, Apple would scramble and beg to find out why and do what the people wanted. If everyone stopped accepting the corrupt authority of immoral justices, they would have to cave to the greater will. It's in trying to inspire others to take up Peace that becomes the greater issue. In your mindset of the "impossible", to not try and not fight, you're furthering the cycle that is this illusion of powerlessness. We need to educate people, show them where the power truly lies, in submission, to help them realize their full potential as a mass. If you think you have power, and you gift this hope to the next man, and the next, eventually you do have power, because to try and contain everyone is impossible.
