  •  You too can be a dismissive tool. (17+ / 0-)

    Just make unfounded assertions with no references or links whatsoever!

    Just pretend there's nothing to see here while a small handful of people gather all the resources on the planet!

    Just pretend nothing's happening while they collect all the information they'll ever need to marginalize or railroad you into prison should they ever need to.

    Just pretend that these activities have no impact on the economic lives and justice of billions of people on the planet.

    Just pretend that the marginalization of minorities used to diminish their influence on decisions and keep them in subservience is nothing.

    Just pretend that this is not the cause of the Climate War.

    Just pretend that this is not the cause of the Terror War, which is a permanent war on individual rights and due process.

    Just pretend, by the way, that you aren't therefore not only complicit but also an active accomplice in all these developments.

    Pretend hard enough and dismiss all these things. You'll still be wrong, but you'll be a handy hammer for those pounding everyone else into the ground.

    The reason the 1% is so powerful is that 99% of the 99% has a sleeping sickness. ☮ ♥ ☺
