Are we going to change the world yet, or what?

What we are trying to do is to change the world.  We would like people to see it for what it really is, all because of human beings.  In order to change these things, we need to make our voices heard.  We need to change human beings.  Unfortunately, there are still too many drones listening to the likes of Rush Limbaugh, and fox news, and praising his word as canon.

I know, I know, I probably shouldn't call them drones.  But what else can I say of these people who just mindlessly listen, and not bother to check the facts for themselves?  It's difficult for me to look at them like my equal, as they generally seem to openly embrace, racism, sexism, homophobia, and oppression.  Among other things.

So, how does one deal with this dogma?  This hyperbole?  How does one actually solve these problems, as it does appear that this bias is the real problem?

The truth is, that the people need to be shown the path.  I don't know exactly how that will work, but I do know, that people need to be shown the way.   Unfortunately, many people don't want to be shown the way.  They refuse to even accept that there is anything wrong, or if they do, they refuse to do anything about it.  Too many are stuck in their jobs, needing to work to eat and live, and by the time they get home, they are just too tired to do anything but turn on the television, which has a tendency to fry people's critical thinking and logical reasoning skills even further.  Instead of looking into the facts, and doing a little research on the issue, they'll repeat someone else's hyperbole as truth, overlooking logical fallacies completely, or trying to justify them in some way or another.

We have a pretty open society when it comes to minorities.  However, ©Harper's Gov't is quickly eroding all of that.  The new immigration laws this JACKASS, and his LACKEY'S, are bringing in, remind me more of what we saw after WWII.  No one wanted to let the Jewish people in.  Even here in Canada, our bigoted leaders, and the masses that did nothing, and stood by, while horror stories slowly filtered in, and ignored by the mainstream media at the time.  And now, we are going to be doing the same, only worse.  Some will be denied basic human rights like health care.  That's right, come to canada as a refugee, and you have a heart attack, too bad sucka, you're dead.  You'll get no treatment from us canucknuckleheads.  Our doctors will just stand by and watch.


War is good for the economy though, right?  So, lets go fight a war, bankrupt the gov't and the banks, force our gov'ts to take on even more debt, at the expense of innocent's who have bombs dropped on the them daily, so that they try to escape to live elsewhere, force our own citizens to pay for it, and send our children off to die.  Tell me something, when was the last time you heard about a senators son, or an m.p.'s daughter getting killed by an I.E.D.

We don't hear about those types of things, because they don't happen, because if they did, then the war would be over.  That senator or mp, would now be biased, and is now going to fight to end it, because it's not a game to them anymore.  Like it is now.  No military commander wants to have that hanging over their head either, so when the sons and daughters of officials in gov't do enlist, they are flagged, and not usually given dangerous duties, or put in harms way.

Not like the cannon fodder that is supplied by the people.  Those who are ignorant of the real reasons for the problems, like capitalism, patriarchy, colonialism, sexism, racism, and oppressive attitudes of those holding office, are doomed to let them repeat it.  It is up to us to educate and inform people.  But this can be impossible sometimes.  When the mainstream media does not want to present a coherent, reality based image of reality, and tends to scew and distort things, it kinda makes one wonder.  We have to turn more people onto alternative press, and we need to have way more informed people in the world.  The other problem is the lack of decent education on some of these subjects in schools.

Feel free to comment.   Hopefully someone has some more pieces to add to the solutions. Right now, I'm just focusing on the problems.  I need more focus on solutions.  Help if you can.  Peace.
