A Revolution of Ideas is Upon Us: Time to Wake Upon March 21, 2012 at 10:30 pm
However, in America and the world at large, we are dealing with some serious issues that are happening with a common message. That message is loud and clear and it sounds like this, “WE DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR FREEDOM. SHUT THE FUCK UP AND DO WHAT WE TELL YOU!”
WHAT HAS HAPPENED WHILE YOU’VE BEEN WATCHING AMERICAN IDOL?
1) HR 347-
HR 347 has passed through Congress. It states that the American people will no longer be allowed to peaceably assemble to petition the government when certain government officials are nearby, whether they know it or not. This is a clear violation of the First Amendment, which states that this right is not to be ABRIDGED.
Justin Amash, R-Michigan, explains this change by saying:
“ The bill expands current law to make it a crime to enter or remain in an area where an official is visiting even if the person does not know it’s illegal to be in that area and has no reason to suspect its illegal.”
2) The NDAA:
The National Defense Authorization Act again chips away at your constitutional rights to due process of law. Underneath this bullshit pile, the United States government can declare any one of us a terrorist, lock us away without a trial for any amount of time they deem fit.
Is this what our founding fathers intended?
I think not.
As a creative person, an artist and a writer, and a father…or how about as a member of the human race–THIS PISSES ME OFF!
And I’m on Twitter tonight and all I see are other comic book artists, writers and other “creators” who surround me with Tweets about Batman and Marvel and Game of Thrones. I just don’t get it. As an creative person, as a writer, as an artist, as a musician…it is our DUTY to speak out against the materialistic, the wrong, defend the innocent like Trayvon Martin, keep in check the tyranny and crooked politicians.
I don’t know about you guys and girls but I’m pissed. For those of you with 20,000 Twitter followers, why don’t you say something profound for once and use your brain instead of RT and Tweet about how Guy Ritchie should direct this film based on a comic by Mark Millar. By towing the company line, BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAing like a sheep, you’re part of the problem.
THE REVOLUTION OF IDEAS IS HERE:
It’s time to wake up people. All of you creators, writers, artists, musicians…it’s time for you to make a difference. We are the shamans, the medicine men, the visionaries of the modern age. Yet many bury their heads in the ass of Kim Kardashian or some stupid video game. We can either be thinkers or robots perpetuating the problem.
If HR-347 and the NDAA, piss you off then do something about it! Use your abilities to write words, draw pictures, make music and say something profound! Use your influence to wake others up, like Bob Dylan and Pink Floyd did…It’s our duty.
