Toward Human Rights (Humanitarianism)
A Revolution of Values
“Those who make a peaceful revolution impossible will make a violent revolution inevitable. . .” Martin Luther
King Jr.Our culture has been high jacked by manipulators bent on creating a nation of sleeping drones willing to giveover their will power to anyone seen as culturally
ur minds have been indoctrinated with self-suppressing ideas that
render life meaningless and shallow, awakening psychosis’ so dramatizing that self
-rejection becomes our prime motive and dependency on external authority becomes our saving grace. Ourhomes have been declared worthless by a banking system which sees them as chips on a large poker table inwhich they own the dealer and control the cards. Our communities have been devastated, rendered hollow bylarge corporations who have brought off our representatives, elevated a flawed electoral system and promotedfraud, greed and dehumanization within their ranks. These moral-less actions have resulted in the shatteredfamily life we are all witnessing today. This modern version of The Brady Bunch sees both dad and momworking more hours for less money; it propels the myth that work is the chief accomplishment of theirexistence; it projects dominance, stress and apathy onto the children from whom much is expected except theirobjection, critique or suggestions as to how the family should operate and finally because of those moral-lessactions the next generation looks to the future with a dreariness not expressed by the media they take in.
These are the realities being faced by the overwhelming majority of this nation’s residents. It is to them that
Idedicate this entire essay to. Consider this is a call to A.R.M.S (All Revolutionary Minded Sojours).We, the 99%, must see that our country is in the shape that it is because we have been unwilling to stand up andclaim responsibility for its derection; we have been unwilling to roll up our sleeves and say ENOUGH! Wehave been unwilling to step back and ask t
he tough questions, questions such as “is there a wealth problem inthis nation or just an organizational problem?” or “how can my community development alternatives to our jobneeds?” When you began to ask questions such as these your mind will wander out
side of the prescribedparameters it has been trapped in since you left school. Questions like these provoke innocents, they provokehope and dignity, innovation and companionship, kinship and heritage but most of all they create an atmospherewhere spirituality and consciousness can thrive, where Community, Family and Humanity takes precedent overgrowth, economics and materialism. Through this way Government becomes a verb not a noun.Our time demands recognition that the concept of grass roots is a fable; in the forest that is our globalenvironment we are the soil, the water and sunlight that promotes growth. We enable large institutions to grow,mature and survive; we promote cyclic processes the generate false wealth and monetary collectivism; wedefine the barriers of growth and expansion of the collective whole known as our economic structure; butultimately when all those metaphors are stripped away, as a population in general, we encourage representativesto rule over us, we give them the power to facilitate cooperation between the institutions that now exist. Wemust now discourage behavior from those representatives that shows contempt for us and if in the process of demonstrating our disapproval they deceive us with propaganda or reject us through scathing criticism, then wemust revoke the power of those individuals to speak for us, elevating someone from within our ranks to do the job that we demand from them.At this present time we stand at a cross roads that questions our commitment to changing our world for thebetter. For over 200 years we have tried piece meal changes, the result of which has been a delayed resetting of the machine known as our Socio-Economic system of Predatory Capitalism. We must now confront the realitythat this system continues to create. High exploitation, a subverted class, a small materially wealthy elite, largecorporations and diminished economic possibilities for all are just some of the symptoms of this system. In1967 Martin Luther King called for a Revolution of Values; he realized that a system that creates poverty mustbe retooled to eliminate that process. I agree.
