It was a tad disheartening for me as well, so I never followed up with more. Some of the exercises I was thinking through were more optimistic as well. :)
I do spend most of time trying to learn and educate. As the years go by, I get a little frustrated sometimes, and wonder if the population as a whole has become too domesticated to make even a minor stand.
Here on the DailyPaul, it seems to be more fertile ground than most, but too often, the wins are short lived. I think that a truly educated 20% of the population would be enough for critical mass. the funny thing is, more than 20% of people probably already agree with the libertarian philosophy, but because they are unaware of the principles involved, they can be pulled back into statism relatively easily. The trick is to catch and teach them while they are receptive (hence my time on the DailyPaul... :) ).
I have a quick post for people to think through, I'll throw that up and it is relatively timely.
