Policmen swing clubs at women, shoot rubber bullets at crowds without discrimination. Blue uniforms stretched over fat-bellied cops, angry violent pension-hoping arms beat down civil protesters. Women cower, hands over head, children run, men restrain themselves. Haven’t we seen this picture repeated enough already?
As a child did you want to fight the good fight, take down baddies? Then you grew up and realized it wasn’t so black and white. Who was bad and good was played out in a more complex context and you let your childish dreams fade.
Internet video has exposed once again the adolescent rage of aged men acting out on adult playgrounds. The world is watching in awe of addle-minded forces of hypocrisy paid by tax dollars beat down the people who pay those dollars. Whose orders are the Police following? Who in their right mind would order such violence against the very people that pay their salaries?
Is it any wonder people refuse to pay taxes to those who merely use the funds to create a force that uses fear and violence to take away our rights and freedoms. What type of person will gather under the banner of “protect and serve” only to use it as a guise for insane behavior that is illegal and only allowed because of force and occlusion by the rights of numbers or weapons?
If our tax dollars are going to be used to attack us and those in power do not know how to use our money shouldn’t we stop giving it to them? Would you pay the corner bully to beat you when you went out for groceries merely because he said he would actually protect you?
Time to bring down the structure we are feeding. Stop Buying! Stop paying corporations so can they choose our leaders. Starve the Beast.
