Not that I would turn down a helping hand, but call me deeply sceptical. I mean, fuck. All you have to do is look at how good the mainstream media in general has been at keeping anything resembling the truth from appearing on the airwaves. Most people have never heard of the demolition of building seven, and the ones that have sure as shit didn't hear about it from cnn. The empire has been invading countries with impunity, taking over governments, seeding mcdonalds and bombing families with unmanned drones, and at the same time what most MSM adherents are worried about are the fucking rhinos, patting themselves on the back for their activism, as sent from their iphone. And then some Jesus-looking actor appears on the very same babble box and calls for revolution. The whole thing stinks.
As a programmer, much of the mental work following my late awakening has been spent towards trying to figure out what the core of the problem is. That problem, as I see it, is blind obedience to authority. It's the reason most people can't see what was done to WTC 7 for what it is, because the man on the teevee said it was a fire. Really, I should stop saying "most people", because as the excellent Washington's Blog reports, more Americans think it was taken down by controlled demolition than believe the account spread by the mainstream media. But it wasn't always like this, and we definitely didn't get here because a celebrity went on teevee and told us it was OK to question the government.
I won't turn down the man's help in spreading awareness, but it should end there and it's obvious that it's not meant to. Already he's being held up as an icon. The things he said, those that I have heard, are elementary truths. Frankly, if what he said is news to anyone, in 2013, I'm not much interested in hearing their solution to global warming and saving the rhino, which are likely to be the only problems on their radar. If anyone has known these things and, following his public unveiling, decided that they now have permission to do something about it, I'm not much interested in hearing their thoughts about activism or liberty. If I wanted sound bites, I would get it straight from the mainstream media's arsehole. Better yet, I would go straight to the same Ye Olde Handbooke of Self-Defeating Activism that they work from.
If this movement turns into another revolution, it will accomplish nothing more than what the empire intended for it: More control, centralised. We don't need a revolution, we need to start thinking for ourselves and living differently. The government has no power that we don't give it, and we don't need to give power to anyone else to solve the problem we created; we need to stop giving our ability away to people who promise to take care of our problems for us.
If we have any hope of accomplishing anything positive with the momentum we have, we have to become a race of self-aware beings: People who can say "I disagree with you and your government", not "My movement disagrees on this issue" or "David Icke said..." or "Plato once wrote...". It's trust of totems and blind agreement with talking heads that got us into this mess and, despite what the fed's handbook says, we're not going to solve anything with more of the same.
