If This Video Doesn’t Wake You Up & Make You Think, Nothing Else Will
How often do we take time out during the day to take a step back and really look at what we, as a whole, are doing on this planet? Most of us are solely concerned with the immediacy of our own lives — going to school, finding a job, and figuring out how we are going to pay bills, feed ourselves, and support the ones we love. And we aren’t to blame for doing so; we have been forced into this way of life. We are taught how the world works and what we need to do in order to survive in it from an early age. As such, we don’t question the wisdom of this path, and are considered strange, even subversive if we choose to stay from it. The sad reality is that we need little pieces of paper representing figurative value in order to survive here. We must pay for our lives.
What’s even worse is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Imagine living on a planet where everybody had their basic needs met: it might seem beyond our gasp, but our species has both the potential and the resources to create this type of existence. However, we need to change as human beings, from the inside out, in order for this to happen. We also have to tackle the monopoly of the corporations and the big banks, who use our elected officials as puppets and as entertainment; we must take away their control over our world.
While we struggle with this conditioned servitude, we are also brainwashed on a daily basis through mass marketing. Corporations today literally dictate what we think we want and need.
