Let me put an idea in your head | Who Hijacked You? #GoodPeople
Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King once said, “Somewhere somebody must have some sense. Men must see that force begets force, hate begets hate, toughness begets toughness. And it is all a descending spiral, ultimately ending in destruction for all and everybody. Somebody must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate and the chain of evil in the universe. And you do that by love.”
The dark pathologies of the uber-rich, lionized by mass culture and mass media, have become our own. We have ingested their poison. We have been taught by the uber-rich to celebrate the bad freedoms and denigrate the good ones. Look at any Trump rally. Watch any reality television show. Examine the state of our planet.
We will repudiate these pathologies and organize to force the uber-rich from power or they will transform us into what they already consider us to be—the help. —Chris Hedges
To quote Dr. King once again, “Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes
the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's
sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the
beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true
with the false and the false with the true.” Please meditate on these
words. It looks to me like such a cancer is spreading in America, with
precisely the effects on its national “personality” that King predicted. - Charles Eisenstein
Good people. I know good people. You know them. You are one of them. I know and you know something is wrong in this world because we feel it. We may not be able to see it, but we know it's there and it's not good.
How long has this feeling been in your gut? How long? How long have movements of good people been attacked and crunched by an invisible elite armed with propaganda? How did they do it?
How? How did we forget we share one planet?
This thought came to me:
It's so easy to put a gun in your hand.
It's so easy to put an idea in your head.
Think... people... think
This is not who we are
We are not violent
We can always stop
Watch what you watch
Say "No More" more often
Think people think
Good people are individually responsible
... be light and shine light... be fantastically human
Your mind IS a weapon... keep it loaded with clarity.
Let me put an idea in your head
Love yourself first
Love can easily be hijacked. Love can be hijacked by people, fear and the unknown. Love can be hijacked but not for long.
Go outside and tell the world how you love it... just send that thought out in your mind...
and I love you... (L/T)
