It is my hope that those who read this use the message to empower themselves as opposed to getting upset with being called out.
If you don’t fall into the category of being a willfully ignorant hypocrite, then this will likely just give you a chuckle. But if this stings a bit when you read it, it means I am speaking directly to YOU.
All of our so-called ‘awakened’ or ‘enlightened’ or ‘truth warriors’ seem to fall into two distinct categories: those who genuinely seek truth, knowledge and to empower themselves by doing what is morally just or right… and those who think that all sounds good but fall short when push actually comes to shove. Not everyone is willing to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to HALF of the shit they are out there preaching to everyone and their mother. Many of the groups and individuals who demand change will literally do only that… scream and yell and demand change, yet they do not want to put forth the effort that is required to take actual action.
For some, their action literally ends with complaining online via social media or in person to anyone who will listen to them… that’s it. They won’t go out and actually try to effect change. When you ask them why they aren’t at a city council or school board meeting, which legislators they have actually emailed, or what actual action they have taken and why not, it is usually a barrage of excuses… I have to work, I don’t have time, I am too scared to speak publicly, I don’t know where to start, blah blah blah. These people will likely never change, and their apathy will get them nowhere.
But what about the people who go beyond those complaints and actually try and do something? What about the people who are showing up, speaking out and attempting to fix things within their community? Surely their efforts are appreciated, right? These people may be a step above the keyboard warriors and complainers, but let me tell you from personal experience, many of those same people do not even believe in what they are out there saying. How can I say this? I will tell you how: if people believed in half of the things they were out there telling everyone else to do, their actions would match their words. It is that simple. Yet, a lot of what I see are mouthpieces who want to assert their ideas and opinions for how we fix things or get change to happen, but don’t follow their own advice. This is typical behavior, demonstrated everywhere from here in my own local community, to doctors and scientists who have large followings worldwide.
So many examples comes to mind when I think of these instances…
There are school teachers out telling off administrators at board meetings and demanding that their friends and family all stop submitting to the faulty masks and testing, yet they present themselves for weekly testing to keep a job that clearly doesn’t give a rats ass about them!
There are healthcare workers who continue to work for employers who violated their rights, know the vaccine risks, seen firsthand how the numbers were inflated with faulty tests, and watched as their employers got rich while people literally DIED. Is your position with an employer like this REALLY that important?
There are virologists, scientists and doctors who demand medical freedom, autonomy, and the truth behind the medical-industrial complex, yet will not properly address the science. They fail to act from a place of integrity because they are too scared their career will go down the toilet if they acknowledge the ugly truths they are faced with.
There are parents who see first-hand what is being shoved down their children’s throats while they have them in school. This ranges in areas from Critical Race Theory being taught… children being forced to mask, test, or vaccinate… having crude LGBTQ lectures given by groomer instructors… the list goes on. So many parents openly criticize many of the things they dislike about their children’s delivery of education, yet they still send them to school every day to be subjected to this bullshit.
I think I made my point with these scenarios, all of them demonstrating how folks are willing to complain, but they are not willing to take necessary action. You cannot be out there demanding change if you are someone who falls into the hypocrite category here… you look and sound like a fool. If your words and your actions don’t add up, you aren’t someone who should be trusted. Period. Conversely, there ARE people out there taking meaningful action, backing up their claims with action and evidence. To them I ask this: at what point will you realize that your efforts to attack the system are not working? The system is not broken. It is doing exactly what it was designed to do.
That leads me to this closing statement… we need to depart from these systems. The idea of what many now refer to as the ‘Great Bifurcation’ needs to take place. This is actually going to be more of a ‘Great Fractionalization’ really, because we won’t just have 2 separate systems. This will consist of many smaller systems, and we need to concentrate on building our own systems locally in regard to almost all aspects of our life. This includes areas such as education, healthcare, and food delivery, to name a few. Instead of demanding change in a broken system, BECOME the change and forge new systems.
