It is time to wake up!

Opinion from the Internet about the general ignorance in the world about our state:

There are a few people who can see plainly what is happening and if they had the capability to help they would and are not stupid in that way. The stupidity lies in the way where many cannot see that the group which not so much leads us but rules over us do nothing about it especially when you consider the effort put into war and destruction. We are humans, top of the food chain anything is possible if we want to but we are apparently confined by this created thing called money and ultimately apathy on the part of the people who could do something but don’t.

Yes, it is amazing how many people are ready to resign to this state, accepting the readily available “circus and bread entertainment”, celebrity culture and consumerism, while allowing the so called “1%” to control them, enslave them, exploit them any way they want.

But a remarkable, unprecedented thing is happening now.

The pandemic and the worsening crisis - more precisely the virus doesn’t allow us to ignore, cover the crisis that has been brewing for decades - will completely dismantle this “Matrix”.

As we can already see the masses are getting frustrated, angry, the movie industry, professional sport is dying, billions will become unemployed as all unnecessary, non-essential production will disappear.

Even the freely promoted addictive substances won’t help, while the elites will also lose most of what they have. The “Matrix” is gone!

So what’s next?!

If we follow history, unfortunately the next usual “solution” is war, to reduce excess population and revive the economy through military spending and the inevitable rebuilding after the war. And this war might be a truly global and nuclear one, so not many will survive.

So the question is if we are still happy to stay idle, if we are still happy to “care” about the world to the extent of the evening news, late night shows, or we start to understand that it is actually about us, about our own survival?!

Hopefully at least a critical mass of people (about 15–20% of population) will wake up and start searching for true, non-violent, non-destructive solutions.

So the pandemic gave us a true chance to survive instead of sleepwalking into a seemingly inevitable disaster!
