These are interesting times.
For the last few decades the corporate owned politicians and media have been busy restructuring the world. Not to make a new one, but one patterned on the worst elements of the old one. Repeating the lessons taught by every tin-pot dictator that has ever left their bootmark on history. Refining these teaching with technological advancements and a more systematic approach to stamping out personal freedom. But the tyranny obeys the two iron rules of those that came before it: Logic is the enemy and truth is a menace.
The moneyed interests had refined a system to destroy the masses, pitting a visibly corrupt party vs. a party paid to be quiet. Giving the illusion of choice. If someone were able to slip in a take a stand against companies trampling over the rights of people they had ways to remove them.
Now in communities across the nation people are standing up and saying, enough is enough.
Issue after issue protests are destroying the carefully crafted script that the two parties were playing out. Washington was ready to approve a “compromise” that would steal the Social Security Surplus to give to the banks. The occupy movement stopped that talk.
SOPA would make it so a person would spend more time in prison for downloading a Michael Jackson song, than the doctor who killed him.
And locally, the government of my state, Kentucky, voted to get rid of the most outspoken liberal in the State Senate. They failed.
When the people stood up to these actions, the system backed down.
One issue at a time we are taking back our nation from the two bought parties.
So I say to anyone who thinks that their voice doesn't matter and they can't win against the corrupt system, I say, “You do matter because you are made of flesh and blood, and you have a mind. When people stand up against the system, they will win. Because any system, any party, any ideology, that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, and the rights of every person, that system is doomed to fail.”
