The scariest thing is that even though he may not realize it he is advocating for an Orwellian dystopian future run by a corpocracy where activism is outlawed.
We have seen the laws passed off as protecting us from terrorists rushed through with minimal public exposure post 911.
I just dont get it. Words used to mean something from his sharp penmanship.
Activism is not the only way to create change. While hippies were out protesting the Vietnam war, the draft, there were people actually in there doing the work for them.
If they didnt make it obvious through their abhorrence for conscription that the war was wrong who was going to do the change; McNamara or LBJ? Who are these people you speak of. Doing the work for them.
Riddle me this. Under a fascist military Junta that has suspended elections and the silenced the Supreme Court if not for activism the only solution is armed upheavel or sit back and take it up the butt.
Please enlighten me what other options you have?
