Hello everybody,

I am a great forum's fan and I think here we have the most intelligent people from internet.

But, instead talking about making money, today I'm going to talk about something very more serious.

When I say more serious than making money, I mean it. That's because when I come to this forum to learn about getting rich, I am honestly thinking pretty much about myself.

But now, while I write this thread, I am not thinking only about myself.

I'm thinking about the brazilian people in general, I am thinking about the reality our leaders are trying to hide, I am thinking about the families that lose their homes, their loved ones, their dignity.

Here in Brazil, we have our hands tied. We don't know how to fight against this. We are confused, we are tired, we are alone...

That's why I'm asking you for help. And when I say help, it doesn't mean a help with money. I mean we need that our cause has to be spreaded around the world. We need that people outside see, feel and embrace our cause. That people see how hard is for a father/mother to feed their children. To go to work (yes, it's a challenge too - an every day challenge for poor people). To live.

I'd like to get a feedback for people who are interested to help. Mainly I need to know how we can do this revolution works out.

And I give my word that, if you need help about anything regarding the same issues we are fighting against now, you can count at least, with one brazilian guy, which will do the best to support that cause.

Thank you!

    My friends and I have been posting the protests on FB. Hungary is also in major protest and resistance right now.

    Friend - the people of the world are angry and very tired of suffering at the hands of a few who think we exist only to feed their greed. People, globally, are uniting in resistance to oppression. You are not alone.

    Strength and courage to you and your people.

      I don't what Brazilian protestors want. They said bus fares were the problem - but that's been solved. So what are the real issues as you see them? I've not heard anything about jobs from the protesting groups.

      There are complaints about the cost of World Cup and of the Olympics (Brazilians were partying in the streets in 2009 when they WON the Games for 2016) - but what is the solution they are demanding? If you cancel the World Cup wouldn't that bring a new set of protestors?

      I don't hear jobs mentioned but calls for less spending....and more services. The protests seem to have turned into a complaint about everything with no suggestions for answers to the problems. The end of the recent article below is interesting:

      I feel sorry for the regular people in Brazil who are not violently protesting but simply trying to live and take care of the families.

    Welcome to America... and about 100 other countries on the blue marble.

    As others have mentioned, perhaps a bit more specificity is in order. If this is just a Brazilian version of occupy wall street (capital letters deliberately omitted), I'm not interested.

    It really IS a worldwide conspiracy that has been going on for over 100 years. With all that has happened, all the pieces are in place. Trying to do this 50 years ago would seem near impossible. Even twenty years ago would have been difficult. NOW, sadly, it is veritable childsplay.

    One decision, that apparently has to be made quickly, and was really revealed only this last week, could bring the US crashing down. The next few years will be interesting, to say the least. We only had a small taste of what could end up happening.

    I SERIOUSLY hope they fall flat on their face and the others, wanting only piece, rebel as they have before in the free world. That IS what created the US in the first place. IRONIC! And the two main triggers(over 200 YEARS apart) even have the SAME NAME! IRONIC!

    I would be less vague but, you know...., That IS part of the plan after all. HECK, they LAUGH at the idea of "manifestos" even while blindly following their own.

    But don't think many countries don't understand what you are going through.

    These issues often put my neurons in a sparkling confused synapse (whatever that means). To a large extent, some folks are better off simply because they know what they're doing and put the necessary work into it. One sees this time and time again when large groups of people are given the tools and means to achieve success, but only a tiny minority use them (look how once lush and thriving farms in Zimbabwe have become deserts). What I like to see are strong and enforceable laws that curtail abusive, criminal activities, looting of public coffers and suchlike. Easy to say, hard to do. Law enforcement itself needs checks and balances to keep it under control from getting abusive too.

    Many people in the U.S. and elsewhere are aware of what's happening in Brazil. A few days ago I was seeing live feed of the demonstrations on Facebook. It's a sign that people are waking up everywhere.

    At the same time, I don't see protests as being the real future of change. The authorities have a reliable formula. They provoke violence or plant agent provocateurs to incite violence, which turns many people against the demonstrators. When it comes down to it, the average person fears anarchy more than authoritarianism and leaders know this. This isn't to say that there aren't violent radicals, but I think in most cases it's orchestrated. Either way, large crowds are unpredictable.

    Protests are just one sign of widespread discontent with the system, which is really global. Once enough people are aware, they cannot perpetuate the fraud forever.

    My suggestion would be to support a military coup.

    In general, the higher up in rank, the better your chances but you can start making a coup as soon as you're a lieutenant.
    I don't think anyone ever listened to a Sergeant who started a coup all by himself.

    With this idea in mind,if you're a smart young man with his heart in the right place, you should be able to start plotting by the time you're 18-19.

    Networking in the military is very important. Basically, once you declare power for yourself (er, I mean for the people), other army units will be like WTF and try to attack you unless you're very good friend with the commander.So if you're not a drinker, I highly recommend you start drinking immediately.

    I'd like to get a feedback for people who are interested to help. Mainly I need to know how we can do this revolution works out.
    You are correct : you will need funding. In older times, it was nescessary to have a large base of contacts in the diaspora because very few would publicly admit they are supporting a military coup, but now you can private message brazillians on facebook and twitter so their co-workers won't know.

    And I give my word that, if you need help about anything regarding the same issues we are fighting against now, you can count at least, with one brazilian guy, which will do the best to support that cause.
    I am trying to fund freedom fighters to restore the long lost Princess Mombuktu of Nigeria to power. She's like Princess Anastasia but in Nigeria.

    Thank you!
    No problem, if you have any other questions, please let me know.

      Latest news:

      They began as opposition to transportation fare hikes, then became a laundry list of causes including anger at high taxes, poor services and World Cup spending, before coalescing around the issue of rampant government corruption.
      It's a moving target?

      It is claimed 75% of the people in Brazil support the protests. I don't understand the concept of "revolution" in a country where the government is elected by popular vote but maybe that's just me. The next election is 2014 - will that 75% vote to change things?

      So you suggest using the military to attack the military and politicians? And you claim RANK has something to do with it? Two major "military men" that caused a revolution and ended up runing the country were CORPORALS!!!!!!! Can you name a sergeant that did that? Still, people are TRAINED to not really listen to those below them.

      With this idea in mind,if you're a smart young man with his heart in the right place, you should be able to start plotting by the time you're 18-19.
      WOW, the other two I mentioned were EVIL and caused the downfall of their nations!

      WOW, GREAT ADVICE(SARC)

      I like the " yourself (er, I mean for the people)". That is often how it is. The other two did that ALSO!

      You are correct : you will need funding.

      And if the brazillian government finds out,or suspects such usage, YOU'RE TOAST!

      I SERIOUSLY hope you're kidding.

        It's called "tongue in cheek" and I expect socialentry is guilty of nothing more than humor.

          It may well be humor but if it may fall in the wrong hands...

          I don't know about Brazil but in Africa they need everything but greedy authoritarians.
