I long for the day that the oppressed masses rise up agains the upper class twits. The only problem is, the oppressed masses don't know that's what they are. They're so oppressed that they believe they're free and happy. That's quite an acheivement. Brainwashing an entire population and making them like it. If the masses were released from oppression, they would be lost.
Imagine a world without television. No advertising, no bad movies, no worse "reality" shows. What would anybody do, without that little box telling them what to like?
Imagine a world without "democracy". No lies, no bad haircuts, no pandering to the voters. What would people do without somebody to tell them what they need?
Imagine a world without religion. Religion is one of the biggest causes of loss of life throughout human history. In the name of religion women are deprived of freedoms concerning their own body. In the name of religion minorities are persecuted and killed. Who would people kill without a religion to guide them?
I feel like John Lennon. Imagine. It's a beautiful song, with beautiful sentiments. It is a song embraced the world over as an anthem of peace and love. But when it comes to the crunch, it's just a song. It has no power to change things.
Imagine what we could do for this world, the people in it, and the environment... if only we all made a little effort.
It's daunting, I know. Where do we start? Each of us feel alone, and that our singular effort will be futile. Rise up, masses, and realise that the collective will of the people can be strong! Just look at the French - I'm fairly sure they've lost count of how many revolutions they've had.
So who's with me? Who wants to obliterate poverty, encourage free-thinking, and save the forests?
Now I just have to figure out how...
