My heart aches to see the turmoil in the world. I was reading an article that stated that if 3.5% of the populace protested they had an almost guaranteed chance of success. This was with all other factors taken into account as well. Peaceful protests (of course) beat out violent protests for best results.
The thing is….. China, much like other idiotic dictator type regimes, isn’t into negotiations of any kind. What these people in Hong Kong want is not exorbitant by any means. It’s sad. What China is doing to them and to the Muslims they are incarcerating through no instigation and with no due process is inhumane. But the world gives in because China is a huge creditor to the world and also has a lot of buying power.
Does it matter to anyone that it’s all fictional? It’s all smoke and mirrors finances propped up by weaponry and bullying. Weaponry is the real dictatorship of the world and as long as governments have the weaponry and disposition to use it against its own citizens who simply want to have basic freedoms…..then no one is truly free.
It makes me so sad that the corruption and madness of a few powerful tyrants can create world atrocities. The world deserves better than this. I don’t have answers. Even in smaller (one on one) situations power can corrupt and cause severe repurcussions and trauma……
So all I can do is offer the support I can from were I am, doing all I can to make this world better. I wish I could do more, but I offer my support to those suffering from China’s bastardly antics.
They will atone for their cruelty. If only they knew. But so many are so enraptured by the illusions of this life they can’t see the killing off of their own souls….for money…for power..for instant gratification…for selfishness…for self protection?
It makes me cry to think of it, to see it.
I hope Hong Kong stays strong. I hope they get the things they demand, some concessions at least. We, the little people, need a win. I’m so tired of seeing the tyrants of the world succeed. So tired of it. All.
We have so much power. Without the masses those in power have nothing and are nothing. We gave them the authority over us. They don’t run the world. They just set the rules and enforce them arbitrarily as they see fit. We truly run it. We the little people…. and I just wish everyone more clearly understood that.
Without us holding them up like a house of cards they have no one beneath them. We are the foundation that they built their thrones on.
But….. they won’t give up power easily or willingly…. because who does? This is such a ridiculous methodology. It’s all warped out of place. Yet we continue the facade for fear of worse. Fear of what worse exactly? That the scraps that are left from the regal opulence the one percenters have stolen from the world be taken from us?
What does it matter? It matters. It all matters. It does. It really does. And you can look away but you can’t escape the consequences of it. It ripples through eternity and you are either part of the problem or part of the solution. I aim to be part of the solution to a whole new paradigm of true freedom, truly living, true valor, true honor, true breath of life.
