I think I’m alright
I think it’s not a good day to die today
You know I feel like flying
Anywhere fast, fucking far away”
The world is in disarray. Americans protesting on all coasts, police officers shooting citizens and choking them to death for infractions that don’t even command arrests by law, and a system left where the only decision it can make to avoid disruption is to side with the very pitbulls it erroneously trained to kill.
Disorder has been imminent since the birth of this grandiose nation. A nation they want us to believe was purchased for pennies by tribes that didn’t even consider themselves owners of the land. A nation full of more lies and coverups than all the soap operas ever created in time in order to save face for its citizens.
But, there is a difference in these Space Aged days that we are living. That difference is access to instantaneous information. They can no longer censor the bits and pieces of the full and true stories that will allow us to see what is what; information travels much too fast nowadays. They can no longer hide their criminal pasts and ill intentions. Instead, they want us to look the other way as they protect the very mistakes they created: officers that over-police at every corner based on emotion.
Since when is walking on the street illegal? Since when do we not draw up criminal charges for someone who commits a criminal act? Is not an illegal chokehold, illegal?
You can’t strong-arm a foreign land, draw up your own rules and regulations for it, and then choose who does and who doesn’t get charged with crimes when they violate the laws of the republic. That is not how the land of the free, and a system that was supposedly made for the people, works.
It is time that we protect each other. It is time to realize that the very people hired and trained to protect us have betrayed us for the corporatocracies that sign their checks. It is time to follow through with what your gut tells you the next time you see these criminals with badges abusing your fellow citizens because they, are no longer on OUR side. When they put on their badges they only see us versus them, and so we must take stands daily if we are to see change and live in a world where standing up for one’s beliefs is not punishable by death.
José Jame‘s “EveryLittleThing” sets off the pace for a revolution that is already here. 200+ people arrested in the capital city of the planet is no coincidence. New York sets the pace and tone for the rest of the nation, and the world. The system understands that by suppressing the most influential citizens it can win without a war, but we are smarter than that, and we won’t give in so easily anymore.
If 500+ people need to be arrested today, and 1,000+ tomorrow, then so be it. We need to remind the globe why we are a nation of individuals not to be fucked with, and that homegrown, organized, and falsely legalized terrorism will be dealt with the same exact amount of compassion that we deal with foreign terrorists to our own republic. We must begin to put up firm hands and robust fists in the faces of the uniformed oppressors and their masters in order to remind them why they are where they are in the first place.
Do not be afraid to stand up for your fellow citizens. Do not hide behind smartphone cameras convincing yourselves that you are helping, and do not walk away with regret knowing that our power lies in numbers and not guns, swords, germs nor steel. If 36 police officers are surrounded by 300+ unarmed citizens, let me remind you that they, by law, can NOT shoot.
We will begin to change things to how they should be:—police officers that help keep our belongings safe, politicians that hold our best interests in place, and a system that listens to us on demand rather than ignore our century-long chants.
