The Spirit of Disobedience
The students and workers of France take to the streets to change a system they feel is unjust. The people of Latin America occupy factories and barricade roads and throw out leaders who try to sell their water or otherwise betray their trust. They change their constitutions and use their natural resource wealth to benefit the most marginalized citizens, the indigenous populations rise up to take power.
The people of America sit on their couches and watch their TVs and grow obese.They take their soma and go to work and eat and shit and die. The students of America go to class and go to chapel and go to the big game. The workers of America produce more for less, vacation in Las Vegas, fight the wars for the ruling class and get their legs blown off. The natives drink. The people of color gang bang. The "bright, lifeless, sameness" has worked it's magic.
