I agree! We need to stop feeding the beast and the beast is capitalism run amok! As we feed the beast, the beast gets bigger and stronger while we grow weaker and weaker and we can’t see that this is happening?
As Sojourner points out, even if there were to be a revolution, what good has ever come out of a revolution? None! There was never any lasting, long term ‘good’ impact for the people that had risen up! Everyone is right back to square one. So, what difference did it make? What we need to do is hard and that is why we will never do it because we have become too soft, thanks in part to what we get in return for feeding the beast and so, when the going gets tough, we merely find another way to continue to feed the beast and even when there is nothing more that you think the beast of capitalism can get from you because you are broke and homeless, the beast incarcerates you and you keep feeding it because you work inside a FOR PROFIT prison! The beast ain’t done with you even after you’re dead. Someone still has to pay your bills even after you are dead and a bill is no longer any concern to you, but they’ll pry a ring off of your cold, dead finger to pay off a credit card bill. Don’t think that this has happened? Die! And the executor of your estate is responsible for paying any outstanding bills from your estate. They call it, your ‘financial obligation’.
This shit never stops! You owe the beast even when you’re dead! Now, how sick is that?
Many of the so-called ‘aware/conscience’ types still seem to believe political activism is somehow going to change and/or improve the horrible mess this country and world are in, today. After all the years of political-activism, from the 1960s until now, with no real political change, except for the worse, these ‘aware/conscience’ types still believe political activism is the answer to all of our political and social ills. They believe this, because they still ignorantly and naively hold to the lie this ‘land of the free’ is and always has been. I believe most of these sad, gullible folks are still wearing their stoned-hippie, rose-colored glasses and wishing Woodstock III would happen.
I’ve used the following quote many times, and I’m forced to use it once again:
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
This is not a difficult…
