Many of them ARE being "oppressed enough"; but this is certainly a very different type of struggle. In the past, most people KNEW they were being
intentionally oppressed, and that is was wrong... this is not just another case of outright oppression, this is MANIPULATION. The movement is to
create awareness and in a peaceful manner make a shift in ideology. To say that people shouldn't join a movement because it'll just fail is somewhat
pessimistic and more of an opinion than anything else. If people DON'T join together, then the truth of what is happening will not flourish; bear in
mind that the education systems, and rights of people are slowly being stripped away to leave people too busy or disconnected from the grand picture
to do anything about it. If people DON'T become involved, then time will trail on until it's too late for people to even have the ability to make a
move (I would argue that for many, it's already hard enough to breathe, and with suicide rates increasing, I'd say so is people's spirit). The
problem is also that many people come to see and understand various aspects of this film throughout their lives but only see the circumstances as
independent variables as opposed to a holistic picture; I believe this movement will help people realize that they are not alone with these thoughts,
feelings, and ideologies, and that they are in fact being manipulated into conformance.
This financial/monetary system will at some point crumble into pieces on it's own due to greed... but that doesn't mean that it's not going to kill
a vast majority of the world population first. The evidence of this is showing just by observing the rapid shrinkage of the middle class population.
Very soon MANY people will (as they currently are) slip into the "poor class". People are having to sell possessions that they have worked their
whole lives to attain in the first place because of this whole financial gain. Statistically, 25000 CHILDREN alone die every day; this is not
necessarily and will increase drastically if the current system/'faith' is NOT put into pressure by a movement.
As for "free will", no one is tampering with your free will; and I will not go into a philosophical discussion as to what "free will" entails.
However in context to this movement, people still have FREE WILL if they join... as it is of their OWN ACCORD to make these choices of lifestyle
change to aid a CAUSE they believe in.
If people don't stand up for a cause, yes, it will fail... that's why it takes brave individuals to step forward and and take action for what they
believe in. If there wouldn't have been brave people standing alongside a cause when Ghandi or Martin Luther King stood to make a difference... then
things could have ended very differently and quite possibly with much more deaths and much less of an impact. The difference in those cases is also
that there were more confined/isolated incidences, IN CONTRAST to this movement, which is meant to take on more global proportions.
Although I respect your 'humble opinion' (as you put it), I unfortunately would have to strongly disagree with it given the overall
