Hello dear reader(s)!
It is time to stop crawling. It is time to stop bowing to the hate that has invaded our lives. It is time to rise against the forces that threaten us. It is time to fight back.
A desire for peace has for too long been interpreted as weakness or an unwillingness to fight. Appealing to reason has been seen as appeasement. We have attempted to work with those who oppose us despite their unwillingness to do the same.
We’ve played within the rules of a game that is rigged against us.
As we have seen, it is a game that we can not win.
This isn’t about voting, or the electoral college, or the popular vote, or anything else related to this particular election. This is about those who have forced us to choose between two of the most hated candidates to ever run for office. This is about those who have forced us to watch as our government is sold to the highest bidder. This is about those who have a responsibility to report the news and the truth yet sit by and let people lie to us for their ratings.
So how do we fight them?
We can start by identifying our opponents.
It isn’t Trump, or Trump supporters. I don’t like them, I hate Trump, but he isn’t the problem here.
As irresponsible as their votes for a racist misogynist are, I am sure most of them actually aren’t racist misogynists. They were simply desperate, and misled. Say what you will about them, but voting for Trump seemed the most likely way to vote outside the system. Of course, they are finding out their candidate is anything but outside the system as he starts to fill positions with the insiders he promised to clean out. We knew this would happen, but in their desperation I am certain they didn’t want to see it. I would love to hate them, but if they are truly so desperate, I can’t. I can only be mad at their unwillingness to stand up for the rights of all people instead of simply believing a conman who played on their fear and desperation.
So, who are the people who truly deserve our wrath?
- “News” outlets Specifically television news.
- Lobbyists These people have to register, it is easy to find out who they are.
- “Defense” contractors The real welfare recipients
- Incumbent Congressmen
- The two major parties
- Political Action Committees
- The greediest of corporate America The other real welfare recipients
I think you don’t have to be to the left, or to the right to know that these groups have taken our country and turned it to serve them, instead of serving our country.
So, now that you have identified them, how do you fight back?
Well, I prefer nonviolent action. I believe that violence should only be used as a last resort, in any situation. The consequences are far too severe for me personally.
You could boycott these companies. You could write to Congress and actually track their votes, letting them know that if they continue to work for those they are not Constitutionally supposed to represent, that they will not hold office for long, and then work to actually make good on that promise. You can vote for third parties from the ground up, so the parties can actually be built into genuine forces. You can come up with your own ideas, on how to fight these people in a peaceful way.
Protesting in the streets isn’t dong any good. Complaining about the system isn’t doing any good. Calling out people on social media isn’t doing any good. Our voices have been heard for too long. They are heard, and ignored because the money keeps coming. The time for raising our voices is over. It is time to rise in action.
Let’s rise up and fight a peaceful revolution, before things get so bad that someone sparks a violent one.
