In this episode I start with the concept of Hyper-normal, and a discussion of why Americans are slow to rebel or disrupt the system so they dislike. Avoiding simple ideas like sheeple or the like. I then tie most of the last several episodes together with a discussion of what revolution could be;  how striking, having an independent party, and all the rest folds into making actual system change happen.

Music Used: Atari Teenage Riot, Is this Hyper Real?
