Some posts from a friend on Facebook….’WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE’…
My favorite of these… “If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.” – Malcolm X”
One commenter to this post on FB, said, ‘we must rise above competitive politics’…. how is this possible in this utterly divided nation that we find ourselves.
It really hasn’t changed that much since I protested the Vietnam War in the 1960’s/70s…. some of the players have changed.
The Occupy Wall Street movement, in my humble estimation, made plain the culprits , being the Big Corporations, Bank or Banksters…et.al. but this was just a ‘reactionary’ movement… which the spirit of, is still present with us. It got me up off of my ass in the 2000’s to become somewhat of an activist, speaking out about things I thought I needed to…
This is just a cry in the night or the wilderness (fill in the blank)…. of someone looking for a way out of the never-ending spiral of War, Hate, Money over Democracy…you name it.
I will stay vigilant. I might look like a fool at times. That’s ok.
Yours truly. thanks to the ‘TimesHeraldRecord’ local area news
