We live in interesting timesAtalanta is studying at the moment and as a response to some of her study she wrote this. I loved the writing because it is real and from the heart. I am so pleased she is studying to become an effective teacher in the community!
The Chinese curse has come to pass.
The state has a stranglehold,
are we a democracy?
Where our choice is between the far right and the extreme far right
Where anyone dissenting is labelled a lefty extremist?
And in jeopardy of being jailed as a terrorist.
It's a web of deception pointing us in a particular direction.
Just watch the media -
hooking us on big pharma (it all starts with Panadol)
and out-of-control consumption,
Give me Anarchism
freedom from the oppression
of Government and big business.
A shift in perspective from
what we have
A Welfare state
with the subsequent restriction of rights
in exchange for SOCIAL SECURITY
What is social security really?
Am I so radical really?
Wanting to be free of capitalism, fascism and all the other isms...
Govern/mentality, all of them
Pushing “regimes of truth” that are
Who decided that the people require guidance, and for what purpose?
War? Workers for industry?
So some may be wealthy beyond measure
Whilst the rest starve
So many laws
So little purpose
Except to control
A most bloody and avaricious regime of truth
consumes the planet
All the isms at play now bow
to the God of them – Capitalism
They make me sick
these excuses for government -
doing the bidding of big business
Who are the true rulers and dictators
Progress, industry, consumption and greed
Just look at the gas field's steadily making
State and Federal government
allowing the interests of
profit and petrol and progress
over the health of the land
and therefore all living things...
Goodbye drinking water
Good governance be damned
Its all good on paper
A stripped back public service
privatization of public assets
Yet, without the nicety of
steering rather than rowing
So many protest sites all over Australia at the moment. There is protesting against Fracking , Roxby Downs and the Gas Hub in the Kimberly and up near Broome they are building a 2klm long jetty to ship the GAS out. The place in the Kimberly is the home of the Killer Whale. This is the totem too. The whale will rise up in the ocean and slap its tail down so hard none of us will survive.
The Sleeping Lizards belly is being gouged out. Inside of his body are a rainbow of poisons to kill the miners. Please go home and leave the lizard alone. Honestly it will not be worth it to any of us.
