This is exactly what I have found in my life as well.
Often i'll get "okay, so what? what do we do about it? sit here and talk about it? i can't do anything practical to change it, so what's the
I just want to slap them in the head. Educate yourself. Become aware of the problems. Be ready to jump out the window when we can to escape this
burning building. If we aren't looking for windows, we're just gonna burn.
I think this is also the greatest stumbling block for Occupy as well, but for them it's kinda on purpose, imo. I think the reason Occupy continues to
weather the criticisms as to "they have no direction" and "who's in charge of this #?" because it helps their cause. When you solidify a leader
or a certain platform, you give a focus to your opponents. The game quickly becomes a race to discredit the people or the ideas behind the
institution; something they do quite well with control of the mass media. Occupy has failed to outline a platform or a leadership so that the
discussion is driven by normal people like you and I. We are not held to a certain arena or idea as to what the problems all are and how to solve
them, which is a strength because it allows all points of view to come to the surface. Each person cares passionately about something else, and
without a leader to dictate the focus, the focus can be everything.
These are the small but powerful things that will actually wake america up. We've been told 2012 is going to be a lot of things, but not many hold
the view that I truly believe. 2012 is going to be the alarm clock going off with the burglar still in the house stealing the gold. I expect justice,
but honestly, once these assholes get put out of power I think we're gonna be too busy living a proper life to care much about revenge. Send em to
space and forget about em!
Love and light all. I wish the very best for all of you.
