"The rulers of this country have always considered their property more important than our lives." -Assata Shakur
It's Hallow's eve & in a few we are our about see the selection our next president of the United States of America.. No need to introduce who is running we are all aware. Selected players in this game of chess, all in connection with one another orchestrating the "perfect" society in which the 99% remain poor and dumb. Full off consuming the idea of dreams which will never been filled. The 1% perpetrate the nightmare in which they continue to fulfill as "life", while we proceed. They call it progress.
Starting back to 1789 & we're gonna skip how a foreign entity even got control of another land but that's another conversation.
So back to the construction of the United States. A entity of people, man kind let's call it what it is created the idea of race.
And look around that's the theme of society. A race. A competition. A race to build the biggest, most thriving empire. And the freedoms to do so however he pleases. Practicing whatever type of behaviors and rituals to maintain his lifestyle, giving him this freedom. We have seen empires rise and we have seen them fall. All racing to be number one. Look at the world right now. And look at our country. Race to the White House. But pause, let's look at politics. The definition taken straight from google;
Politics is the study or practice of the distribution of power and resources within a given community (a usually hierarchically organized population) as well as the interrelationship(s) between communities.
A variety of methods are deployed in politics, which include promoting or forcing one's own political views among people, negotiation with other political subjects, making laws, and exercising force, including warfare against adversaries.
Pretty standard definition given the fact that the people created the construct of race and class systems are given a look and their playing hand..
However leaving out the fact that when you look at who is giving out the power and resources. Businessman whose business is inhumanity. Majoring in the banking of chattel human labor. Inflicted with the deadly sin of greed, is this what voting for freedom in America means ?
Looking at the history of this country and what exactly it meant to be free. For all of us it means something not all of us will see. And this is what we vote for ? The change we will never see? Let's be honest...From the moment the constitution , amendments were created they reinforced taking from the masses and giving to the few making them rich. Consumerism became God & savior. Laws and regulations are her hymns. And how you show love is implementing new ways to continue the system of extortion upon the land. We pay for water and it's poisoned. We pay for food. And that's poisoned too. Aside from all that we pay for nature and vote to breathe just to be turned down with those without a soul. This isn't what we signed up for. Do you remember voting this torture in? And then they keep on asking us to do it again and again?
This is trap. This is no American Dream, not for the 99% at least. Decide what you will but remember not everything is what it seems. Rise from your slumber. Open your eye so you may see.
