We are a collective with a new aesthetic.
Every day we are led to believe that who we are is a product of ourselves. This is a lie. We are products of a society that values violence and domination. We are told that violence is a natural human function when in reality it is a product of a society that values it. We are formed from birth to believe that our worth lies in our appearance and our bank accounts. Creativity is not valued unless it is synonymous with capital gain.
And we consent to atrocities committed in our name by not speaking out against them.
If we change ourselves we change our communities and our world. When we break down the systemic oppression that holds us in place we weaken the system itself. We begin to redefine the world in which we live because we are redefining the people that make it.
When we break down the oppressive structures that bind us we see that there is nothing to be afraid of except the fear of finding ourselves. We don’t have to allow the systems of racist, heterosexist, corporatist, patriarchal oppression to form us into who we are. We don’t have to listen to the rhetoric that tells us to conform to the standards of a society that doesn’t value individuality.
We can stop being afraid.
You have a choice to make my friend. You can be a consumer or a revolutionary. Revolution isn’t what you think it is. It’s a stuggle to become ourselves in the face of a society that tells us who we should be. It’s a Revolution of Heart, it begins with you.
What you think you know is a product of the experiences that you’ve had. And your life has been made up of the illusion that what you think is your original thought. When in reality, “you” are a product. We are all products of the world in which we live.
We must wake up and see the cellophane ceilings and the world we’ve created. We can’t go on not questioning.
Why do we accept the world we’ve inherited as inherently anything? It is what we make it!
The system has been molding us from the beginning and we never saw it coming.
Pick a job that’s profitable. Sit still. Don’t make a mess. Make money. Exploitation is acceptable. That’s just the way it is. People will never change. You can’t do anything about it. It’s not up to you. Don’t even bother. MAKE MONEY! Don’t ask questions, don’t make a scene. Because I said so. Because I said so. Because I said so.
It’s time to unlearn everything that you thought you knew.
Conformity is no longer an option.
It’s time to be unschoooled.
