 If you fight for a cause, almost anyone can change the world. It takes personal discomfort, confrontation, and persistence.  It  does not  happen fast.  Usually  it  takes  a generation, and sometimes maybe longer.  You do not convince the present generation. It is the following generation that you hope to reach. 
You engage in unconventional behavior that produces publicity and adherents to your cause.  You grow or join a movement.  Remember that eternal publicity is the price of justice. You must be a publicity hound.
Many of these people were ordinary people.  Moses started his career by killing a man, spent most of his adult life in exile from Egypt, must have been stoned out of his mind to be talking to a burning bush, had a speech impediment, and was 80 years old when he decided to lead the Israelites out of Egypt.

Jesus was a poor carpenter when he decided to challenge the priests and money changers on the Temple Mount, yet founded a religion, as did Buddha.  Mohammad started a holy war and founded a religion.  Luther was excommunicated by the Catholic Church, but founded another religious group.

Newton was a compulsive introvert, who rarely spoke.  Yet he founded the Royal Society, which started the scientific revolution for which he was considered the second most important individual of the last millennium.   First place was given to Johannes Gutenbergh for developing the printing press. Max Planck discovered quantum mechanics, but never believed it.  Einstein was an introvert, but dominated modern physics. Hawking is completely physically incapacitated and cannot talk, but he holds the physics chair at Cambridge University once held by Newton.

Mohandas Gandhi was a pathetic old man, but he liberated India.  Martin Luther King was a 25-year old Black man in the United  States,  but  he  coalesced  the  civil  rights  movement.

George Washington was a pompous, extravagant, womanizer.  He was President of the Constitutional Convention, but made no legal contribution to it.  His genius was keeping his mouth closed, but uniting all the delegates into a common goal by throwing lavish parties for them.

Charles Dickens, Victor Hugo, Ayn  Rand, Ann  Morrow Lindbergh, and many others did it by writing books.

The secret to changing the world is to use your particular talent with persistence, publicity, and patience.

Time to stock up on more guns, more advanced guns, better guns, and lots of ammo. If you are going to die in the Nazi executions anyway, you might as well go down fighting.

It wouldn't hurt to stock up on Bibles, on your understanding of what is written, and especially your understanding of the Biblical facts that God is the overall Government, world Governments will be destroyed by Him, that most of the Bible writings against people fighting against government have to do with protecting unprepared people from government, that if you have a government don't fight it because proclaiming that a government is your government shows that you have made an agreement with YOUR government that you should uphold until you throw the government off as your government until you fight it, and a lot of other things like these.

In some respects the U.S. and the modern State of Israel are traveling on near-convergent paths, like trains passing at a siding. 

Israel started out as a weird mix of traditionally observant Jews and those who slipped off the rails, driven by the "Pintele Yid" towards socialism (a defective, secular substitute for genuine "Tikkun Olam"). 

Slowly, today Israel moves forward.  The inexorable dynamic of assimilation & intermarriage are removing the secular and marginally religious Jew (along with the attachment to socialism).  At the same time, the world-wide shift to economic value vesting in Knowledge sets the course towards a market economy.

Conversely, America slowly slides (held back only by a huge inertia, borne of past glories) towards a future of being a marginalized, third-world, "Idiocracy". Replete with resources, but with a culturally selected population of sullen, grasping drones, (the productive class having quietly slipped away), America will eventually chugg to a moaning, exhausted, stop.

It is good that Julian Heicklen, has returned to his people.  May we all merit the coming of Moshiach ... soon.

Thank you for the good news, Ernie!
