“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell
“No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth.” – Plato
Those who know the world is heading in the wrong direction need to wake up and realize they are no longer trying to stop an authoritarian system being implemented - The world imagined by George Orwell in 1984 isn't "coming", or "a possibility", as mainstream media would lead you to believe. 1984 and big brother already exists. We live in it, we sustain it.
We are cogs in the machine that enable it, and we as a people, and a species enable and are responsible for all the "evil" we see in the world, yet we blame it on our politicians, the government, the republicans, the liberals, Muslims, the baby-boomers, other countries, the gays, the blacks - whoever, and whatever. ANYONE ELSE - to avoid taking responsibility ourselves.
We are doing exactly what those in power want us to do.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
We can no longer afford to divide ourselves over irrelevant, petty issues. We can no longer afford to sit idly by hoping that others will do what we know we should be doing. We can't assume that others will put in the effort, and take the risks for us.
We have a choice now, but we will not have it in the future if we continue to do nothing.
Everyone needs to spread the word. Everyone needs to educate those in their community.
We must resist propaganda and collectively speak out against anyone and everything that seeks to reinforce the worst aspects of the status quo and distract the population - wherever it be online or real life.
We must promote and spread individuality, new ideas and unpopular opinions, whether we personally agree with them or not.
We must resist the urge to spend all of our free time on meaningless distractions - TV, sport, video games, movies, Reddit...etc
Individually we have no power, together we have some.
History is decided by the minority enacting its will on the majority. Positive change never comes from the majority, which always has to be dragged, kicking and screaming towards progress.
You are not yet powerless, you posses the greatest weapon in history - human imagination.
Do whatever you can, because time is running out
