Great thread and video. I wonder if this brave young man will go the way of Bradley Manning - I also wonder what would happen if, as I have mentioned
before, everyone - including our soldiers, simply refused. Refused to carry out illegal orders. Refused to pay taxes. Refused to buy into the lies and
When will we begin?? I look every day for local demonstrations I might take part in....why am I not organizing one myself??
Good question! I am called a boat-rocker, a trouble-maker, a maverick....always opening my mouth when it would be more prudent to stay silent. And
then, always nervous I will be rejected, I worry that I said too much. If I take aside someone who I think perhaps may agree with me, they often say
"You didn't say anything everyone else wasn't thinking."
That's comforting, but....WHY are we so silent?
How did this society become so toxic that only a few of us are brave enough to speak up? And even then, we are afraid? Because it burns
bridges...so....what's the solution? What will really empower us?
I come back to the only thing I can think of:
Refusal to accept and participate in the status quo.
I worry for my children, my future grandchildren....and their respective generations. What a mess.
Thanks for posting this.
