They’ve pummeled your dreams so far into the ground with their bloody fists that you’re willing to vote for an ass like Biden while you think Bernie is god’s gift to humanity, second only to Jesus fucking Christ himself. They’ve shoved you so far into the corner that you can’t see that Bernie is a sellout. He supported Obama’s drone program, had no issues with an extrajudicial kill-list, and was willing to play fluffer to whoever the DNC decided to ram down your throat. You think you’re being ‘pragmatic,’ but they’ve recruited you with cynicism and desperation. It’s not ‘naive’ to want better than their offerings of deep-throated dung. Wanting better is the only way forward because otherwise, you’re a fool, making deals with devils and thinking you’re going to come out ahead.
Better exists, and it’s your duty to make it inevitable, not to marginalize it and call it ‘unattainable.’ If you want integrity, look past Sanders and check out somebody like Mike Gravel, who wanted to liberate Americans from lobbyists and the world from America.
You’re not being smart or practical when you accept their shackles; you’re just acquiescing to the lowering of your standards.
Stop listening to them. You think they agree with you, but in reality, they’ve shoved you into their dungeon and pretended to be there for you. They’re not trapped in there with you – It’s their fucking dungeon.
It’s Kafka’s ‘A Little Fable.’ It’s the infamous monkey trap. You’re clutching their shit so hard that you can’t pull free anymore. So they close in on you, and they’ll feast on your brain, man.
The overlords are in control, their zombies have you surrounded, and you think you’re being strategic. You don’t change social reality by accepting it; you change social reality by defying it to your last dying breath. Everything else is acquiescence. Everything else is surrender disguised as wisdom. Everything else is an abandonment of your values, without which you’re not even a human being anymore, but a husk lacking the decency to acknowledge its own demise.
Eating shit is NOT a strategy unless your plan is to lose.
