IF YOU ARE AWAKE, YOU ARE THE RESISTANCE.
I need to make a side note before I begin talking about the videos from today and in a way it ties into today. I’ve noticed that every time someone mentions getting a movement or a rally or an event going, immediately someone and it’s usually the same core group of people attack and start belittling and downing anyone who wants to do it. And it’s nation nay worldwide. They all say the same thing, “YOU CAN”T”. No it’s not you can’t, it’s you don’t want us to. “Why, you can’t have a rally, you can’t have an Occupy movement because so and so or such and such”
No it’s not me who can’t, I was there, I decided to do it and not listen to I can’t. You are the one who told me I can’t, not me. Get it. I was there so obviously I can do it. You didn’t want me to do it. Well thanks for your opinion now shut the hell up. If you put as much effort into doing the rally I imagine we would be free already. But as Morpheus said in a photo message on the web I saw recently. It read:
“You have to understand… most people are not ready to be unplugged and many of them are so inured, so helplessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”
And it makes the issue for itself; yes they are so helpless and petty that they will fight to maintain the illusion, for that illusion is all they are and all they have. There is none so blind then someone who will not see. We all have so much potential and we are all so strong, but we allow others to lead us and tell us what we can do. We except it and go with the flow because we have stopped seeing that if we but stood up the flow isn’t as deep as they told us. We have been lied to so much that when someone tells the truth we can’t believe it it’s seems so damn radical. Imagine that the truth a radical notion, instead of the normal status. Wasn’t it George Orwell that said “In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
He also said “He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” So I say people need to stop worrying about what so and so will say, let them talk if they didn’t stand up or show up they can shut up. I am tired of them bringing down an idea because they rather be a coward and stay behind the anonymity of the computer screen. Because if they were there they would sit quietly and timidly like the cowards they are. They don’t deserve their freedom. But since all humans need to be free they get theirs for the price those of us who stand up pay. Mark Twain said “In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”
Ronald Reagan said “History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.” Meaning if we don’t stand up and make the price of aggression high and stand our ground, they will take it from us and then who do we have to blame. I intend to fight right now with words and actions later with weapons if it comes to that. I’m hoping that by standing up and fighting the infowar that it will stop what they are planning next. But we all have to find the courage to stand up, once you do it no matter how many times you get knocked down just keep getting back up. It only takes you getting up once more then they knock you down to win. But stand up and tell the troglodytes to shut up. Anyone who says “YOU CAN”T” tell them Yes I can.
Okay on to what happened today. I got to the event a little late when I arrived there were about 30 maybe 35 people around. Chris Dorsey was speaking to a few people and I stood there watching and listening. The group slowly started to break up and many left, that’s when I got Chris and Teddy Parham to speak on camera. They brought up many interesting points and even if you don’t agree with them, they are at least out there doing something. I will be doing more here in the future getting my arsenal of cameras ready to film more events. People need to realize like I stated before to stand up. It’s doesn’t take courage to say hey something’s not right. We need to also realize to agree to disagree. If you don’t see eye to eye on everything, good that means you can think for yourself. If you don’t agree with someone that is your right. But don’t go around saying don’t and can’t because you disagree with someone else’s opinion. In a free society we all have the right to our opinion. Doesn’t make one better than the other just different, if we all pulled in the same direction we would be out of this mess we’re in.
