: How did I spend my #sicko
Saturday? Well, maybe it wasn't the most uplifting alternative to getting in the streets to #womensmarch
with the rest of you, but I napped a bunch, finished #thetravelers
(so good) and sunk myself into a social funk with a viewing of #zeitgeist
: Moving Forward. I'm proud of the millions of people who stood up and counted. But my truth? Sounds more like this quote from #georgecarlin
from this flick: "If I had to say to you what is the answer I would say massive bloodshed. I really would. I don’t really, honestly, deep down believe in political action. I think the system contracts and expands as it wants to. It accommodates these changes. I think the civil rights movement was an accommodation on the part of those who own the country. I think they see where their self interest lies, they see a certain amount of freedom seems good. An illusion of liberty, give these people a voting day every year so that they’ll have the illusion of meaningless choice. Meaningless choice that we go like slaves and say: "Joy, I voted!” The limits of debate in this country are established before the debate even begins. And everyone else is marginalized and made to seem to be either communist or some sort of disloyal person…a kook…there’s a word. And now it’s conspiracy… see? They’ve made that something that should not be entertained for even a minute. That powerful people might get together and have a plan… Doesn’t happen! You’re a kook! You’re a conspiracy buff! So… the only way you cure that… death, bloodshed… I don’t advocate it… but I see that it’s really the only answer." Let's just say, I hope you're right and I'm wrong.
