The problem is, we do not know exactly whom to go after. Personally, I feel setting the politicians straight is the easiest thing to do, but its the
corporations and banks that need to be tarred and feathered first and foremost. But the question is who do we go after, which corporations do we go
after, how do we do it. They have such a stranglehold on our daily lives that unless you are paying attention, it is so subtle that people simply do
not really notice or care to notice. Then how do we break that grip without sacrificing personal materialistic gratifications that so many people hold
onto for dear life.
At least we all agree that this country is royally screwed, but that is not enough. Because then it comes down to morals and ethics and when someone
comes up with a plan or idea, the other group disagrees because it is immoral to them and it is a never ending cycle and nothing gets done. Then we
have technology for all its good and all its evil and people are so addicted to it that they cannot see past their next incoming twitter message. TPTB
have certainly got what they wanted, if they tried to pass some law and it failed, no big deal, they then just turn it in to technology and made to be
fun while laying the infrastructure to put their ultimate plan into motion, and the people are none the wiser, because now they can tweet - awesome!
Examples of this could possibly be discount cards, facebook and twitter alone are some of the biggest privacy stripping things out there, but so what,
its fun - right?
The US has lost its spirit that it once had, where is that attitude we used to have when someone wronged us, I mean, there was a time if someone was
wronged, the individual would be up and in the other persons face at the drop of the hat defending themselves no matter who it was. After all, we did
not like what the king was doing, so we packed our bags and headed across the pond, saying screw you while we left. The king tried to tax us, and we
unloaded a ship full of tea right into the harbor, saying screw you as each crate hit the water. Then the king tried to kill us again, and we sent his
soldiers right back to him, saying screw you. Where are the days we did not let anyone walk over us, instead of saying "I don't have a choice", or
"that's the way it is", or take things at face value, or taking the path of least resistance for fear of being chastised or called a rebel. Americans
have become despondent and submissive and I do not know why, maybe technology?
The problem is, we cannot agree on a common goal to set things right. Here is my challenge, lets try to come together and agree on one simple thing,
what to do about this mess. Then, lets not get all hung up on the method to reach that goal, as long as we all reach that goal at the same time, isn't
that what really matters? Yes, we will have to make people upset, we will step on their toes, we will be putting our hands in their cookie jar, and we
will break a few eggs, that is part of it and it is all worth it in the end. Come on, put aside petty differences and lets just work together for once
and just get the job done and always be aware of what the big picture is and not let others distract us from our goal. Because it really sucks that
the only time we come together as one is when things like 9/11 happen, then we are right back to our old ways 6 months later, as if nothing ever
