Another unpopular post, lol, buckle your seat belts!
It doesn’t matter if Obama is a liar.
It doesn’t matter if Obama is a Corporate sell out.
It doesn’t matter if he is a tool of the PTB.
It doesn’t matter WHAT he is.
And above a certain level that is needed to stir your activism, it doesn’t matter how outraged you are about that, it doesn’t matter how much disgust you have for people who just can’t see “it,” and it doesn’t matter how much you beat people over the head with your opinions on it, or facts to back them up, or even to a lesser extent, how much history you muster on exactly what the United States is and who it is really run by.
Why doesn’t it matter? (Except for those few rare cases where someone’s eyes are just opening and you can help them see) I will let Morpheus explain, lol, in my continuing overuse of the Matrix as metaphor…
Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
Now the ‘enemy’ part is a bit overstated in our context, the people who have not yet opened their eyes, those who still think The System can work are NOT our “enemy.” And treating them, at least the ones who CAN wake up, as such hurts more than it helps.
And so attacking MOST of them (besides those already on the attack themselves) is fruitless and counterproductive. They are not going to wake up because of a blog post. And thus it just doesn’t matter if you try to convince them of your truth about Obama and the Government….and even stuff like torture….by beating them over the head.
What matters is this.
There IS a political situation, a political reality. And we are trying to change that reality. THAT matters.
We are not going to be able to change that situation, that reality all at once by telling people what they are UNABLE at this time to hear. That is not effective.
The entire System is broken, it is pretty much impossible to fix it all at once without an, lol, armed revolution. And that is just not going to happen in the USA….right?
So we chip away, and SLIGHTLY change minds…and the System…..piece by piece. While trying to raise consciousness of the real situation, the real reality as we go.
In that context…
It doesn’t matter who the players are or how corrupt they are or who owns them……except in so far as pointing these things out will raise the political consciousness of those we are talking to.
We don’t STFU, we don’t back down, we don’t run from a fight.
But we DO ask ourselves the key question, the question that DOES matter….Is This Working.
And if the answer is no, we find another way.
And then AS The People start to wake up, we feed them the info that they need to become active, to become part of the burgeoning People’s Movement. To become part of the solution to a broken System.
Fixing that System for the Greater Good of All Concerned is what matters.
Finding The Way to do that is what matters.
The rest of the “stuff” is important, knowledge is always important. But using that knowledge effectively is what matters.
