Lets be clear about this
They would and have pressed the button to annihilate cities, millions of peoples lives ….shed a tear and praise their courage and bravery at taking such a difficult decision on our behalf…
Keep people in their place….more than just nasty people taxing bedrooms taking food from the poor discarding the disabled
Scare us, would they do that…..or just examples of what they might do if pushed to keep us in our place
Is it them or us
Angry one day? You would imagine terrible acts of revenge …would you do it? If you had the power? So would they?
When we talk about them…what they do how scary they are …do we add to their power spreading the fear?
Distracting us from what works what is needed
Fear or love
No compromise even in the face of Armageddon
And pushing the button….one fell swoop or little by little….
Chip away at those below or wipe out in one go
The news….the media….an illusion…just part of the torrent of input we experience every day….remember when you thought felt were sure about what was wrong? It hasn’t changed just the fog can descend and you have the worry and stress of everyday life to filter it through…..time has passed but….
It hasn’t changed….
what you thought was wrong and needed correction hasn’t changed…..it is still wrong, it is still based on fear and hate and still needs to be seen for what it is……call it right and wrong…call it some eternal battle between good and evil or a politically framed conflict of class and capital and us against them but meanwhile…..
People die, animals and other species disappear….whether talking about electronic freedoms ala the governance of the internet or everyday life….localised arguments about borders, private vs public sector, taxing the poor, disenfranchising those who are already disenfranchised…..just that little bit more, corruption in power may change name face flag but remains the same disease
It hasn’t changed….
Don’t be surprised, stop being afraid of what’s next….you already know it’s just a matter of detail
Build move forward grow empower gain strength with life and from your strength be more alive
Corny? Fear is the disease and love is the cure? Smile and be happy? Hippy cliché? Or perhaps just finding a way to live and survive here and now, not waiting for a fantasy to arrive once it’s all over
Fear and hate don’t
Don’t be afraid love your anger and kill the hate, you’ll feel better
...just my tuppence worth...
