You want to know what I think?
I think not all cops are pigs, not all politicians are crooks, and not all FBI/NSA agents are mindless big-money lackeys. In fact, I think the majority of human beings are generally decent, moral people who just want to get through life, feed their families, and do the right thing.
Notice I didn't say I thought *all* human beings are basically good. Some virulent strains of homo sapiens don't give a shit about anyone but themselves, and these are precisely the ones who are destroying this planet. The folks they control, however, are the (profoundly) silent majority. These are the people we need to reach.
I can't speak much for other countries, but in the United States all our strength lies in the rank-and-file Establishment. Without the cooperation of these people the evil power-mad elites are nothing. And the bad news for the elites is that these people are starting to stir from their slumber. It's up to us to shake them awake before it's too late!
The evil Bush/Mega-Corporation cabal is hauling out the shackles as I write. Systematically deconstructing the Bill of Rights through the "Patriot Act," holding political prisoners incommunicado, doing away with whistle-blower protection for civil servants under the Homeland Security Department, and paving the way for each and every American to become electronically tagged and monitored through injectible VeriChips. Time is of the essence. There will come a point when the middle-class establishment won't be able to fight back. But that time has not yet come.
FBI guys, wake up! Don't you see how these big-money arms-peddlers and dope-pushers have been using you all along and have steamrolled over your brethren whenever one of them got in the way?
Mainstream journalists, wake up! I know you guys read Indymedia, too. You have so much power. All that is good about our civilization is being sold down the river. Are you remaining silent because you're afraid you might lose your job?
Well, guess what, middle-class establishment, you've already lost a hell of a lot more than that while you weren't looking. Civil liberties, pensions, clean air and water, social security ... all under attack RIGHT NOW. But they can still be saved. While we can still speak out, we can still act, we can still vote ... Joe Shmoe needs to learn the truth of what's going down, because, at the moment, Joe Shmoe can still kick Sharp Dressed Man's ass.
