What if I told you 99perc of your peers feel the same as the 1% - most (not all) given the chance would sell you/me out, because their values are wrapped up in the values of the society they are so dependent on to feel validated; to feel like someone/thing. Many have not even throught about who they are - just 'lucky' by default. scary thought, scary reality. This 1% nonsense has led us to a common enemy and herded us politically to not question the very culture we inhabit - very powerful stuff because, we buy it. Us vs. them - the elite vs. the rich, left v.s right - handy tactics for political pensions. Blaming without action is complying -' I dont like how that makes me feel' but im powerless to do anything - I have NO power. Easy. Its an easy life to point fingers and be smug in your victimisation.Stupid people have always been in power like the land rapers, the huge banking systems that are corrupt to their core etc etc........
The people in power have never given a toss about 99% of the rest & that is the way it's been for many years.
As you asked above about if you should sit back & watch it burn I say yes, the time we are in is the final day sadly.
I used to think "God" was writing the last chapter, these days I think his writing the final word.
