Power to the People!


The only thing worth globalizing is dissent. ~Arundhati Roy

I made a discovery today or I had an awakening into the nature of my soul. It came about because the world is now globalized and I have access to news other than that published by a press hamstrung by the insatiable quest for ratings and the accompanying dollar over the dissemination of unbiased reporting. It is not possible to be truly unbiased so I would settle for balanced reporting.

I stumbled upon a website called by the same title as this blog quote. I perused and felt agitated, chills & shaking, righteous indignation. (Have you ever noticed how our own indignation is righteous and that of others is piss moaning?) The exact same physical reaction I have when my thoughts dwell on the Vietnam atrocity perpetrated upon the Vietnamese and American people by a self-serving, corrupt US government, soul rapists of millions on both sides.

My soul is stirred when the oppressed rise up in a communal voice, a whisper to a scream. It is people expressing communal dissent. Not dissent by the wealthy to preserve the status quo keeping them at the top of the pyramid but dissent by a people finding a voice to speak their truths to power, to self-appointed authority.

I am enamored with revolution, tickled ecstatic by the heroics of Gandhi and Che and Bolivar when they confronted power and helped the peasant change the world. I am enthralled by the lone man standing before the tank in Tiananmen Square in defiance of an oppressive regime.

I pray the US experiences a revolution in my lifetime. Peaceful if possible, violent if necessary. It is time the power was returned to the people. Power to the People!
