Would You Take Any Responsibility?

When you take a good look around, it’s actually hard to believe what’s going on right in front of us. I mean really, the government, corporations and military are so corrupt, and so clearly doing the opposite of what they should be. Yet it continues. Yet it becomes worse. How is this even possible?

It has become possible because you believe voting matters.

It has become possible because you believe that there is another human being on this planet that is your enemy.

It has become possible because you allow the people that tell us we have enemies, to tell you that you have an enemy. And you believe them.

It has become possible because our education system in this country does not actually teach you anything about life or the banks or a mortgage or having a fight with your spouse.

It has become possible because you don’t say anything. It has become possible because you want to fit in. And it has become possible because you look at me based on the clothes I’m wearing or the vehicle I’m driving.

It has become possible because you know more about your team or tv show than you know about how our banking system works, or what the federal reserve is and how it works. Or the real reason we have war.

It has become possible because in our society right now as I speak, truth is stranger than fiction.

It continues because each of us thinks that it’s someone else’s responsibility to change.
