Is "Red Fist Revolution" something we could/should get behind?Submitted by throughtheblack on Wed, 09/14/2011 - 18:25
I ran across a band called Red Fist Revolution which is kind of a rock opera project. They seem to be quite anti-war and I think they understand what goes on in the back rooms of power and control. I haven't been able to find a whole lot of info about them but they are now on my radar. Just wondering what others think. Could we get behind them? Could we maybe get them to help get Ron Paul elected?
Some of what I have found:
"Many bands strive to make a difference in the world through their music no matter how big the struggle or how minimal the odds. The members of Red Fist Revolution take their roles in the band very seriously and strive to inspire others to make a difference as the events of their rock opera unfold. The group is so dedicated that instead of getting interview answers from Ben Stewart, guitar player and vocalist, I received comment from his rock opera character Trooper Chrysalis.
With just a quick visit to its website (and possibly registering your email with the band, which will get you a free track from the newest album) the band’s dedication shows no bounds. There are currently three videos available online which guide the listener into a world where the band is actually a revolutionary group fighting against the enemy through its music. Trooper Chrysalis speaks more about the group’s cause: “They wanted to tell the world that it could be free of the Goliath OverClass, and truly make a fresh new start . . . a brand new day.” "

We believe that mankind is fashioned in the image of its creator, and as such, all human life has worth and is sacred.
These battles we fight are not against flesh and blood alone, but they are within the theatre of idea
Personal transformation can have global effects. As we go, so goes the world. The revolution that will save the world is a personal one.
Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.
Every revolution evaporates and leaves behind only the slime of a new bureaucracy. We must strive to end the bureaucratic age.
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
It is hard to tell if they are coming more from a libertarian perspective or a socialist one. They don't seem to be globalist at all. Does anyone have any more info on these guys? What do you think?
P.S. It appears the front-man previously was in a band called Conspiracy Of Thought
