In today’s world many of us look to measure the success, or lack of it within our movements. We look at the amount of newscoverage, we count the amount of people that show up at an event, or even at a GA. Sometimes we get frustrated with our world, and look at the movement and use our individual perceptions as a tool of measurement of success or failure of the larger group. We have every right to choose to be supportive, or proactive based upon our perceptions of the movement, and what we perceive others may or may not have done.
In the end, after semantics, and after arguing the differences from each other, and trying to figure out who is on top and who is on the bottom, we are all still faced with the same looming problems. The longer that those in the 99% point fingers at each other the deeper the pit gets so to speak. Who will you blame after the pit is too deep? Who will the next generation blame? My belief, is that they would be told that this is the way it’s always been, and will know no difference.
You, however can do something. I can’t tell you what that something is, for we all have different innate abilities that can be utilized to make this a better world for all the people. It’s just up to each one of us as an individual to find that thing that we can do to make a difference. To be a difference!
In ten years, how will you look back at all of this? Will you smile, and think back proudly of the part that you played in the civil advancements of all the people? Or will you be the one that sat on the sideline, critiqueing others as they fight in the struggle for humanity. Each person has to look deeply within themselves to find this answer. I am not the one that will judge you, it is not my place. But you will be your own judge, and its up to you to decide.
