I’m going to put a more positive spin on the Tuesday social commentary stuff this time.
On the heels of my “Be the Change” post, I want to talk about what the mega-rich, power elite political and business leaders (and their media puppets) are utterly terrified of… YOU! Not just you actually, but Us… seeing through how we’re being set against each other to the point of needless, senseless violence so that we don’t see how they’re robbing us, keeping us down and and outright working against us.
I’m going to use a couple of short clips from Rise of Skywalker to make the point, since something like this IS their worst nightmare:
Perhaps it’s more appropriate to say it’s HOPE that they’re afraid of. Because when hope rises at a dark moment like today, THIS is what happens:
Note the shock and contempt in the officer’s voice also when he says “It’s not a fleet sir, it’s just… people.”
For the record, I’m NOT talking about violence either. I’m talking about all of us standing up and saying “NO MORE” in one loud, unified voice.
No more corrupt government that thinks we exist to serve it instead of it serving us.
No more divide and conquer, spreading hate.
No more false solutions that only make matters worse.
No more politicians becoming filthy rich at taxpayer expense.
NO MORE putting giant financial institutions and mega-corporations ahead of people, the environment and smaller businesses.
No more pretending too big to fail doesn’t actually mean they MUST be dismantled.
The day we FINALLY stand united and say “ENOUGH!” is when the world changes.
Right now, it feels about like 25 seconds into that clip, where even Poe has given up hope. As that fleet’s arrival shows though, everything can change in an instant. We just have to want it bad enough.
