1. Do we have to have a crisis and crash for change to come?
2. How do we get past Partisan politics and Republican Democrat radicalism?
3. Gerald's new movement: Occupy Peace Movement. OccupyPeace.US
4. Can the Internet Revolution save us?
5. One of Gerald's favorite songs
Gerald: Absolutely. Again, the vacuum has never been larger. You know me. I'm a political atheist. I look at both parties ... I mean, they're the Bloods and the Crips. I don't mean it facetiously. They're murderers and they're thieves. How many more wars do they have to start, how many more people do they have to kill before people call them murderers? How much more money do they have to steal from us before they call them thieves?
Cody: You have no idea how many times I would get stopped in the elevator and hallways at Fox, or when I would go to appearances at ABC or any other channel ever, and they would say to me, "Can you please pull back a little bit on your political rhetoric? When you're calling the Republican-Democrat regime a bunch of warmongering murderers, Cody, that's really radical." I would look at these people and be like, "No, the warmongering and murdering that the Republic-Democrat regime is doing is what's radical."
Gerald: It goes back again to the question: Look at what the people ...
The same thing happens with me all the time, and I don't get invited back because they don't want to hear it; but again, going back to the question: does a crisis have to happen?
Here you have what you would think are people that are intelligent calling you a radical as they keep buying the crap and supporting it.
Cody: Correct, and propagandizing it for ... in that case, when it's in the hallways of a television network ...
Gerald: Exactly, so that's why I keep going back to: it's the people. It's the people.
Cody: How do we get to this better platform that is non-Republican, non-Democrat? As far as I'm concerned, I'm radical enough to be antipartisan at all. I don't want there to be parties. I want people to be free-thinking. I think there's enough of a literate base in this country that people can write in who they want to be elected, and we'll just take whoever gets the most votes in each thing.
Gerald: I agree with you. Again, I would not use that term "radical." As you said, the radicals are the ones that are the murderers and the thieves.
Cody: Thank you for clarifying and straightening me out there.
Gerald: Going back to it, here's number one. The new Trends Journal is going to be coming out on Monday, and I'm starting a movement. It's called Occupy Peace, and it's going to be ... the website, we're building as we speak ... OccupyPeace.us. This is only for Americans because, on top of the Occupy Peace is no foreign entanglements.
Cody: Oh, wow. That is a good platform and basis that you're starting with there. Keep going.
Gerald: Here we are. I'm speaking from Colonial Kingston, New York, and this is the foundation of ... that's part of the foundation of the revolutionary war was right here. The British burnt this joint down in 1777. This is the ...
Cody: [Crosstalk 00:11:27] you're talking to me in Lincoln County, New Mexico, not famous only for the Lincoln County Wars with Billy the Kid, but I still am best friends with kids whose last names are Geronimo, Larry Geronimo and others, who also are part of the revolutionary national movement concept that you're talking about. I wanted to connect some dots there.
Gerald: That's great, and that's what we're talking about ... again, the people. You said about enough people. Here's the way I look at it. Eighty percent of the people will follow anything and do anything. You see them all over. They eat crap, they buy corporate food, they eat corporate food, they have no minds ... they've lost it. They'll follow good or bad. Whoever has the loudest voice, they'll follow.
Other ten percent are ... I call the destroyers. These are the people that are destroying things in front of us. These are the greedy, the immoral ... and again, I'm no preacher. My whole life ... I'd be the last guy to say, "Oh, yes, I did everything just right." No. As you get older, you try to learn more and you try to make yourself better. I'm not telling people what to do or how to act. I want to make that really clear.
Cody: I'll say it like you are a preacher, Gerald, because you're preaching the word here. You're doing God's work. I do believe that. Keep going.
Gerald: Then there's the ten percent that you're talking about ... the builders. Now it's time for the builders to move into position, and that's the way I see it now. The vacuum has never been greater.
