This thread is to remind people…’we the people’… that we do indeed have power.

Through propaganda techniques we have been brainwashed into thinking we aren’t worthy.

“You can’t do that”

“Your not good enough”

“In your dreams”

Well its time to wake up friends!

I feel as if I’m preaching to the choir somewhat, but even so, it needs to be said……and acted upon.

We are ALL weapons of mass creation.

But for too long we have been frightened into remaining in the shadows. Those who have had the bravery to use their talents for good have been 'removed'.
But if all of us stand up on mass, and use our creativity, what will we have to fear?

If you have a talent, do not be scared to show it. To use it for good. To make a better world......

The Last War




Freedom, Peace and Security will NEVER be won nor secured by the sword, another war will always need to be fought to end the fear of the sharp blade against the vital thoughts of change.

The last war will be waged without soldiers or freedom fighters, without blood shed or death, no rockets red glare, no bombs bursting anywhere.

The last war will not cause suffering, broken hearts, splintered spirits, or shattered bodies and souls, the creation of nature and man will not be crushed under the rolling thunder of armored machines, chemicals will not rain down from above, maniacal viruses will not attack from within, suicide terror raids, genocide, and nuclear holocaust will have no place in the last war, the casualties will be the end of competition, industry, government and religion which plan for and carry out the destruction, addiction and control of others.

The last war will be waged BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE, a war where all things will be TREATED as equal, a war employing weapons of MASS COOPERATION, battles fought and won with tolerance for all, understanding of difference, awareness of responsibility, a war in which compassion and love conquer and destroy the final evil enemy of humankind, the last war, the mother of all wars, the war to end all wars, must be waged upon fear.

We the People, declare a global war on fear.

How do we the people start this war, how do we wage this war, how do we the people win the last war ?

We start by turning away from those who support fear, by denying our services, our employment, our political, financial, moral and spiritual support to those who build and profit from the economy of competition, addiction and war.

We wage the last war by demanding that our energy and environment be clean and renewable, by demanding that the thousands of billions of dollars spent yearly on making the weapons and means of war be shifted and added to the nearly meaningless hundreds of billions which is reluctantly parted out for social, health, education and domestic infrastructure.

We win the last war by simply entrusting our votes, our support, our children's and grandchildren's lives to those of US whose words and actions - DELIVER - compassion, love and truth.

We the people can, will and must defeat fear.

Strength, Unity, Peaceful Change . . .



A stunning example of using creativity to get your message across......











Banksy

Personally, i still don't feel i am using my talents and creativeness properly, something i am trying my best to change.

I (and others) are trying to get the message across, in our own unique ways.
Its safe to say the area where i live will see a lot more examples of this......



Our greatest ammunition is imagination
We are all weapons of mass creation
While they drop bombs that kill and maim
We will create works that do just the same
But what we are killing is the idea
That war and destruction is why we are here
And when the world is at peace
A reality from birth
A whole new generation
Will see the masterpiece that is earth




Peace

Really awesome thoughts and ideas. Art is very much a message that can last forever and I think we all have it within and I believe all people are able to embrace their creativity. In art, your dont need to be famous or well known to get your point across.

This is such a "feel good" post that I had to S & F it.

I can't remember when being an idealist was a good thing.

Too many put-downs, . . a notation of "dreamer" in quotations.

Seems that TPTB want us to fear . . . everything.

( Liked the guy with the flowers . . .)

Thanks Scooby, you make some great points.

Works of art can indeed last forever, usually they outlast the creative force behind them and even the message they portray. But this is a very positive thing as it serves as a reminder and sets an example.

Yes, to create works you don't need to be 'famous' or 'well known' at all. Take the example i gave in the OP. The world at large still don't know the identity of Banksy, but his works have become world famous and much loved. They give a lot of food for thought that's for sure.

And i think his the way he goes about it is brilliant, remaining unknown, an enigma. By using urban 'graffiti' techniques he is also popular with the younger generation, who respect his works.

Anybody can do it, you don't even need to be good at it, although im sure it helps
, as long as you have a positive message to give.

Thanks SIEGE, i agree, idealists are few and far between.

But if everyone stands up together and uses their talents, others will follow. We need to set the example.

Fear is the most thought restricting word there is. We need to let go of fear.

Some may say that i'm a dreamer......but i'm not the only one.

Hi kaskade, i couldn't tell you how to make these stencils or where to buy them. A thorough scour of the internet might get you some results though.

Luckily i have a friend who does his own very similar designs, so i go to him. Very talented individual.

They are a lot more difficult and complicated than they look. That's the beauty of them, they are graffiti, but they are also so much more.

Thanks.
