It took me a long time to be able to get the words that I feel need to be said down. I am not one to post much nor am I one to throw my opinions
around, I would rather listen and learn.
That being said I feel that a major issue with the protests in the United States is that there is no major goal that we are trying to achieve. In
fact, that is a major problem with many of the people that I talk to and many of the posts that I read on this site. We do not know what we want. From
childhood we have been told that we want to make money, keep our hard earned money for ourselves, and buy objects that are suppose to give ourselves
I do not want to rant about socialization or the fundamental problems of the American Dream, rather I want to establish a unifying goal, a set of
basic rights that we can all agree on. Human rights, such as the right to basic food, water, shelter, the right to medicine, the right to live. We
need to be protected from corporate gains and from political ideologies that further separate the people of this country.
My question to you is, what do you want? What do you want out of your government and what do you want out of life? Most importantly, What will it take
for you to care enough to change this system?
The Day of Rage had the right idea but the name in itself is wrong, we should not be raging against any one person, for we all helped and allowed this
to persist. We should not be raging but rather changing, accepting some blame and then working to fix it, because it is fixable. It is changeable, we
just need to better understand what we want to change it into.
I want basic right for all people, I want to make this a place that once again stands for freedom, justice and the morality that we have lost bit by
bit over the years. I fight for the people, I just want to know what it will take for the people to fight for themselves.
I refuse to believe that we are too far gone, I refuse to believe that this is all there is, and I refuse to accept that people do not care. This is
our life, lets take control over it once again.
