Gigi, you thought a citizen could be permitted to participate in politics, if they wanted to reform it. The system just told you “We’re NOT changing….” what did you expect? They listen to $$$ NOT the common man or woman… Forsake politics… it has already forsaken you….
(If you are a long term reader of this blog, you already know, I knew, and said this would happen…)
Chris Titus: Love screwed up people, though. I could hang out with screwed up people forever. Screwed up people are great, ’cause screwed up people have been through some stuff. They know what can happen. They know the problems. ‘Cause if you’ve been through a lot of shit in your life, you know every time you see the shit just about the hit the fan… you step to the side of the fan.
[laughter and applause]
Chris Titus: That’s right. But all the poor little normal people? BTTTHHH!
Chris Titus: Hey, you learned something didn’t you? Not gonna do that again are ya?
“Mr. King you are disruptive to the status quot and a danger to the people as well as yourself. We shall hound you, surveil you, threaten you, and assassinate you… “for your own good of course…” because this system is the ONLY thing that “works” for so few, at the expense of so many… What you advocate is anarchy. You shall be dealt with at a time of our choosing. You have been warned… Do the rest of you get the message yet?” — Pardon me, while I stand with Dr. King even if I stand alone. If YOU are not free, I am NOT free… What part of this do people not get, why, and what for? (And for how long…???) That is the real question, here.
“Just so you know anybody can see what you post on Facebook… You’re just alienating people with what you post… Why do you even bother. You won’t get a job or have a life…” Yep, got it. Thanks. That I post on FB stuff from FB is criminal. What I post is also apparently inconsequential and meaningless.. at the same time. So apparently we have the 1st amendment to post pics of cats. And network with people that agree with us, and that life hasn’t been better, and can only get better “if all the negative people” get out of the way, of “the makers” and leave “the takers” to fend for themselves amongst each other. Because even though we live on a planet with finite resources that are more valuable the more they are used, and is more unlivable the more we consume… if we actually valued people, human life and that which sustains life, we could have peace and nobody would want for anything. Clearly that is not only violent, but evil, and you deserve to be surveiled, discriminated against, ostracized and made to submit to the “popular will” and conform to what those above you on the conformity totem pole demand of you, naturally… for your own good. Even though paradoxically their own good COMES from YOUR disadvantage out of YOUR rights, being transferred unto them, and transformed back to YOU as temporary privileges… subject to UNQUESTIONED OBEDIENCE… And that is “freedom” and that is “opportunity” for the weak to live on the benevolence of the “strong” who game the system to benefit themselves and those like them, and are self righteously and with contempt willing to maintain order, by allowing those beneath them to compete for the crumbs from their table. If we can’t speak out. If we can’t think and share our thoughts or have diversity of opinion without reprimand or fear of reprisal… How is any reform supposed to take place? How is upward mobility possible? And how is the status quot supposed to ensure anything less than the medieval caste system? It’s a serious question. But please don’t direct your responses to me, that would invite conversation. Take it up with those around me, and let them tell you how insane and crazy I am for having a conscience, and the will to act on it… When that becomes threatening to mankind… um, we got bigger problems than what somebody posts on fucking FB! Don’t YOU think!?!
But if this bothers you… It’s okay! We GOT a pill for that/you!!!
