This video pretty much explains exactly how I feel about the current situation of this society, and just why we are facing the troubles that we are today.
Please view with an open mind...its entertaining as well.
"Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see."
So what can we do? Seeing through the illusion of the work/consume cycle is a huge step. Setting up our lives so we don't depend on their energy or food is another. Once we stop giving them our labor, tax dollars, and consumer dollars, they have less power. Once we stop fighting their wars and waking up our friends and family to stop fighting their wars...they are much less powerful.
They need us to WANT STUFF. We need to believe that we are incomplete. We need to believe that we need their products. We need to believe that we are separate from Nature and the rest of humanity.
I know there are some out there that will always say: "Jeez Rawmodel...dont focus on the negative. Youre such a bummer. I was trying to enjoy my cacao smoothie...and now this?" Shall we be misinformed? Pretending that everything is peachy while they take away our freedoms and destroy our planet is a complete cop-out. We are so much better than that. We have to be aware, and we have to take action. Remember...evil can only survive when good people do NOTHING. Darkness cannot exist where there is light.
Ok...done ranting. Enjoy the clip. Remember...open mind.
