Stirring the Emotional Riot

After an hour of just sitting here contemplating what to write, staring at this blank space…it’s time to write.

I feel like I’ve been trying to avoid what is on my mind. Maybe it will just be better if I get it out.

Next Tuesday there will be a Rally and March in Solidarity with Mike Brown, Ferguson, and all the victims of police violence.  I will be attending, because quite honestly, I think the police don’t hesitate to kill a coloured person in this racist world. It happens way too often. I am reminded of Dudley George, whom was also killed by a police officer.

Colour is not a crime, for some reason we are the targets. Gaza, Palestine, Israel, all colour. Whose supplying the weapons? U.S? U.K? Obviously a wealthy old white man. If you think about Pipeline number 9, where it begins and ends, are aboriginal communities that experience the side effects. I know when I say side effects, it doesn’t sound like much, but literally these communities lives are put at risk. Besides the pipeline, Aamjiwnaang First Nations are exposed to the pollutants in “Chemical Valley”. Many community members there have died from cancer. Apparently, people of colour are on top of the list of extermination.

My ex told me to look of Georgia’s Stone, and what I found was frightful. Carved in stone are the following words; “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000.” That’s just one of the “commandments” written by man. Limiting the population of the earth to 500 million will require the EXTERMINATION of nine-tenths of the world’s people. That means, only 10% whom they choose, will be worthy of living.

Well no wonder your Government is trying to poison you with GMO’s, and fuck up your natural resources, they are literally trying to kill you.

As for the police, they supposedly serve and protect. Serve and protect who? Definitely not the people. I mean, they’ll show up at peaceful rallies and make arrests no problem. Yet, our Government is full of criminals, and not a single arrest is made. Instead of fighting for peace, they fight against it. The only thing they serve and protect are the interests of the Capitalists.

I think what these police officers fail to see is that without their uniform, they too are just one of the people. Not the 1%, but part of the 99%.

I fear for all people of colour, as well for anyone within the working-class or lower.  I fear for my children that are being brought up into all this. My son has already experienced some discrimination in the education system, and he’s not even 10 years old yet.

Racism seems to be an ancient form of hate we keep passing on. Partly why I turned away from religion. After doing some research and realizing it teaches people to hate each-other, and doesn’t allow people to think for themselves.

I don’t believe in a heaven, and I don’t believe in a hell. I believe those are nothing but fiction, made to induce fear so the elites can control you. The only heaven and hell there is, is what we make it here on earth. And unfortunately, too many people would rather make it a living hell. Especially the people in power. They are the ones promising you eternal life if you slave your asses off for them, so they can continue to live in luxury. Not only that, but the bible gives off the impression that if you make money, you are worthy to go to heaven. If that doesn’t make you think, or question it all, then what the fuck? Like seriously, they try to convince you, or already have for majority of the religious population, that everything will be better when you are dead. You are expected to waste your life, serving them like a machine for their sake. Meanwhile, maybe your purpose here is far greater than that.

I believe each life is valuable. Unlike capitalists that value money over life. I believe every single person was given their own unique gift to contribute to the land, and to each-other. Not for the capitalists selfish needs.

The way things are going saddens and concerns me. In a way I wish the people would just go on a Global Riot. Show your pain, show them your hurting. Tear their system down. I don’t mean to go hurting each-other, these are times when we need each-other the most.  Our differences and false illusions that separate us from each-other need to be put aside. Your blood is as red as mine. Sometimes, in order to change things, you need to deviate. It won’t happen if you’re too scared. Make as much noise as you can, because your life matters, you are valuable, and the generations that follow, their lives matter too. – Pooks

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

  1. I completely agree with you. The only way to effect change in this greedy world would be to have everybody open their eyes and work together one common goal, change. If for one day, every single person stayed at home the system we are forced to serve would see that we are in control. Everyone should stop paying their bills and max out their credit cards and stop paying their rent or mortgages. The system couldn’t take everyones house because there would be nobody to buy it after it was repossessed. Unfortunately I don’t see that happening. As long as the average person has their reality TV and Facebook and get the new iPhone as soon as it comes out, they will continue with the self sedation and be blind to the puppeteer who is pulling their strings. I wish it could be different. Somewhere humanity took a wrong turn and got lost but the people kept going and didn’t look back.

    • Maybe that is the problem. The hopelessness and depression. Nobody believes we are capable of change. Or as the religious folk like to tell themselves; “That’s the way it’s meant to be. It’s in Gods plan.” Haha! More like the Capitalists plan, bunch of delusional sheep! Newho, I think it needs to go even farther than just stop paying the bills, and maxing credit cards. We need to abolish money period, and seek better energy resources than the ones that harm us. Instead of oil, and nuclear power. We need to try more natural resources, such as the sun, water, and wind. Basically take away what the Capitalists value more than life, oil and money. Sure it would mean having to resort to simpler times, back when humans bartered. Maybe then, all this having to be competitive bullshit will cease, and humans will actually come together and support each-other. As for technology, it has it’s pros and cons. Like you said, it can be self sedative. People use it to distract themselves from reality. But I’ve also seen it be used as a helpful tool to bring a mass of people together for rallies and other events. The choice is up to the people on how they use it. Are they aware of the powerful tool they possess?
