The problem is us.
We have a lot of problems amongst those of us wanting change. Whether it be change for human rights, animal rights or the broad spectrum of injustice in this world we must realize we are part of the problem. Responsibilities have taken a backseat to blame and fame. This is getting us no where. We must stand together, stop supporting and start going the other direction from all things unjust.
In terms of cooperation we are again to blame. We do not work together, instead we bicker and climb the moral ladder in an attempt to feed our own egos and bellies. From blogs to undercover investigations we are all asking for hand outs just to eat some tasty vegan food. Why not commune and share our efforts, our intellect, our love and bring this injustice system to a close.
Each day we weaken our efforts with internet, conference calls, and public meetings. What happened to the days of knowing one another, trusting one another, sharing with one another, and most importantly believing in ourselves in order to not fear the consequences. We have over paranoid ourselves, we fear the consequences of snitches and prison for lack of truly believing in convictions.
Many seek to find refuge in the anti-system but merely join the system. This is exemplified in the selling of books, t-shirts, speaking engagements and so on for one's own benefit and makes she or he nothing more than the same capitalist entity many of us are trying to bring down. How do you dignify your efforts when money greater than your expenses is exchanged for what you do or produce? This is not beneficial to the whole and only to the self. We simply need to live, not to profit. Share and share alike is our ultimate aim. So why do we beg for donations if we feel our efforts are just and beneficial to all. Isn't the benefit to others enough payment?
