Some people want to watch the world burn. If the world’s going to burn, I want it to be an asteroid strike that does it. It’s the only fair thing to do.
For millennia the greatest gift of human beings has been the unprecedented ability to seek, document, and disseminate knowledge over great distances. We’ve been able to take those ideas, thoughts, and beliefs and turn them into a reality which propelled us forward. That same gift, however, has also, at times, been twisted and used as our Achilles’ heel and wielded with devastating results. Using fear, lies, and superstitions to pit us against one another.
We’ve evolved from insignificant creatures hiding in trees and caves to become the most formidable species the Earth has ever seen. From farming to housing to science and protection, we’ve taken this world and bent it to our will. Not only have we been able to dominate nature and every other creature on the planet, but we’ve also managed to break free from our world in search of others.
In the 21st century, we’ve been able to take those same gifts and supercharge them, for better and for worse. Not only are we able to transfer knowledge regardless of language barriers, but, we’re able to do so at the speed of light. Now, the sheer volume of information itself can be used as a weapon. The use of information for nefarious purposes may not be a new or novel idea, but the number of people who can be reached is.
True love, the tempory gift of an endless dream delivered by a breathless kiss.
#WeThePeople need to get a policy enacted that explicitly states, “No elected representative can legally lie to the American people unless it will directly & immediately cause harm.” It’s time to end the trope of the lying politician.
There once was a man named Cenk, Progressive, strong, I mean the man was a tank. He started a show in a really, small space, he took that show and put hypocrisy in its place. Out of the internet, he rose to television screens, where he told them to put up or shut up, the guests thought he was mean.
They Occupied Wallstreet, cheered the Sanders campaign, the Justice Democrats were born, uncorrupt and unchained. They were laughed at and looked down upon by the establishment reign. But, #WeThePeople thought differently it was time for a change. These are still early years with more battles in the war, can they be won? I say Of Course!
I owe @BernieSanders a debt of gratitude (or maybe a kick in the nuts) for making me believe that real change is possible. Before the 2016 election I, like a lot of people had been trained to think that, It is what it is & we’re powerless to change it.
He’s done more to change our country & the Democratic Party for the better than nearly all other politicians combined. All that aside, he is not the only Progressive & I feel that some folks are missing his message of #NotMeUs.
We are lucky to have both Bernie & @EWarren kicking ass leading up to the 2020 election. To all of those who are guilty of screeching, Only Bernie, do us all a favor & rethink your actions.
Upon waking this morning the 1st thing I hear on the news is “taps” playing for #DDay75. Tears immediately began flowing, not only for those who died 75yrs ago but, for all the soldiers who are still dying today & for what? We’ve allowed our politicians to twist one of our most basic instincts to protect, into something monstrous & disgusting. Knowing what we know now, we mustn’t allow it to continue. Though we may be many generations away from peace, we must start the process today.
