The (R)Evolution Will Not Be Televised

Get out there. Talk to your neighbors. See what’s going on. Talk about stuff that matters to you. Really matters. What’s going on in your heart? Do you know? Can you speak it?

Make something. Make some art. Plant a garden. Plant a seed. What do you wanna grow?

How are your relationships? What’s happening in your community? Your city? Your country? The world?

Look around you. What’s going on?

  1. I like Bernie without a doubt better than Hillary. I just don’t think America is ready for such a drastic change as socialism. The powers that be would never allow the current system to change unless money was to be made. That being said, with the world being in crisis again and expecting another downturn in the world economy and ours a strong leader is necessary. without the support of the mega rich socialistic values will never stand.

    1. I think people get hung up on the word socialism. Bernie’s proposals are more in the lines of Theodore Roosevelt, (Rep) (breaking up monopolies and regulating banking) and Franklin D. Roosevelt (Dem) and the New Deal. At any rate, yes, he will be better than Hillary, when I went to see him speak there was not one thing I disagreed with. Bernie is supported by regular people, not the mega-rich, which is a big reason his campaign is so fascinating. I think the people are ready for a change, and I’m afraid the powers that be won’t allow it to happen. It’s not the people (the 99%) who aren’t ready for change, it’s the Plutocracy that isn’t ready.

      1. Yes I agree everything you said is honest and correct, but look what happened in Colorado, the delegates were appointed without a single vote from the 99% the people. legal or not they will find a way to swing the election in an institutional favor so little change if any happens. I also think Donald Trump was right when he said if things continue on a business as usual agenda and the wrong person is elected unrest will happen on a scale that hasn’t been seen before.

          1. I know sometimes it seems very clear that we are or might be heading towards another slave system, but this time race or gender will not make a difference. Look how far we have come as Humans in almost all areas except our Humanity.

            1. That’s why it’s so important to remember our humanity. To look around us and see what going on – in our hearts, in our close relationships, our communities, and the world. 🙂
