We are inundated with  ‘revolting against society’ posts .

Take no more shit from  religion , politics-  war..

Yet, I am just as guilty.

We like all these posts but we do fuck all about them .

I’m Daisy the anorexic.

I am 100% against racism.

Are you?

Did you voice your opinion when your Nan, mate or whatever  went and called  a group of people one of which you may be married to, work with ,friends with- a bunch   Paki’s ,Kaffirs  or a nigger ?

Why didn’t you speak up for  him/her/them?

Why are  still we buying all this make up and these clothes if we are supposedly  not buying into the media and being brain washed?

What are we actually doing that is making a change in society?

Don’t like seeing animals abused?

Why do we not take what we use on our skin and put in our bodies seriously?

Why you wearing leather?

Does your name end in Flinstone?

revolution

Eating meat?  you don’t like animal cruelty?

What are you doing  going to Primark ,Topshop – whatever shop  to buy your clothes if you don’t believe in slavery?

If you see me at these places let’s hook up and start to communicate properly.

 

We obviously don’t give a shit.

Why do I still drink bottled water?

I know I’m killing the planet.

Hypocrite comes to mind.

Why don’t we care enough?

We all know war is not the solution .

Our men and women are dying for the elite few and still we glorify them.

“Look what a hero he or she is fighting for our country.”

What?

I don’t see any improvements from war. I see governments profiting.

WE DON’T CARE ENOUGH. -Aldous Huxley  comes to mind.

We are  fighting about legalising some drugs and not others – all drugs including alcohol and cigs, E vapes ( I’m hooked on the shit)  brainwashes us into a nebulous slumber.

Didn’t George Orwell say something like that in  his ‘1984’?

NEBULOUS.

A drug is a drug. Legal or not.

State the fucking obvious Daisy!

I think we are messed up.

What business have we -wanting children, when we treat the world the way we do?

By all means like these ‘take a stand against ‘ insert ‘what gets you ire’ posts.

But let us think about  what we can do about this situation we call  -a humane society ?

Why can’t we revolt?

Better the devil we know?

I don’t have an answer.

I have tons of questions but then I always have questions.

Why are the majority of us  not doing something?

What can we do?

We need to communicate seriously …

You can think you are your own island and continue with the whole  ignorance buzz   but don’t go trying to bring more life into this world in your mission to believe,that by liking an “I am not going to be brainwashed by media or whatever” post  -that you are actually doing something.

I think it is a new kind of brain wash . Like it and you think you have done something.

No, you have read something and clicked on a button. You haven’t done fuck all.

Think about why you are liking it, what is supposedly happening in the world and in the News.

Mainstream news/media  as all these posts we like, tell us that we are being fed propaganda – every continent even yours!

Is this war in whatever country a cover up for something that need covering up closer to home?

DUH!

We have to get smarter..

Fuck reality T.V. bullshit.

It’s not an easy answer.

I think, if we are going to like these posts we should be in the front line protesting.

We need to start doing more.

What movement do yo want to see in your society?

What?

Why?

…and how is revolution going to change the fucked up society we live in .

If we can get all fucking “artistic” and organise a ‘flash mob’ , we can organise a revolution surely?

I want to wake up and stay awake.

Done with this politic rant.

Thanks Charlie for the inspiration

Gonna go back to reading posts – ha ha! Rant over.

  1. It’s all noble and good to say that you’re taking a stand for / against something…but when you avoid people because you think that they aren’t fighting the same fight that you are, simply because they aren’t doing it “your way,” it isn’t uniting…it’s divisive.

    I’d rather get out and do things that make a difference – not sit online and pat myself on the shoulder because of some “viral” post. That’s just me, I suppose!

    This is probably your most brilliant post to date Daisy. The Respond Movement, that’s just it in a nutshell. There are all these things we can do, but never quite come around to doing them, although we support the concept in theory. I could take this to the Nth, but my personal awakening bids me take an enlightened approach. War is never eradicated with war.
    The whole system is riddled with lies and we feed them by our pocketbooks, and that is supposed to be advancement. No, that is robotic and a very subtle but effective slavery of the masses for the sake of the elite. And who are the supposed elite, nobody, just the most willingly brainwashed, satanic, puppets among us. Theres a better way, and you’ve encouraged me to continue to advance it.

    • Theory doesn’t change things action does. Sorry for the late reply onl just seen this. I love what you do with your blog. Active awareness. If there was no debt in the world we would have no need for money…

        Now you’re talking my language! Money itself is debt. In our current system it is owned by the banks, so if you own it, you owe it. That is why it is called bills.
        But it goes much deeper than that. It is the price we pay for ego indulgence. Think about it. If all were strictly benevolent instead of selfish ego based, we would produce and share everything freely. Debt would be unheard of, because there would be nothing to buy. It would all be freely shared among us.
        Now wouldn’t that be a happy world? 🙂

      • Oh it would be a far simpler world indeed. We have been brainwashed into consuming. The elite few every day try to eradicate the most natural thing humans possess(and our only saving grace) -compassion. The more robot like we are, the better off they are. The devil doesn’t need horns and scary demonic shapes. It is alive and thriving behind a facade of tremendous power and beauty.

  4. Great raw post. Love to see people having the courage to state their beliefs unapologetically–that’s the way forward.

  5. Ohhh Daisy, the guilt is really sinking in. I will be more conscientious of my spending habits (all of my habits, really). I never thought about how buying products made from cheap labor is tacit agreement with slavery. Great post.

  6. Daisy, I love this, it’s real, it says a lot about what’s going on in the society, you actually captured everything in a place. You are on point!!

  7. If you get a chance, watch “Requiem for the American Dream”, a documentary featuring Noam Chomsky. It is streaming via Netflix. It touches on many of the points you bring up in your post.

  8. Daisy you summed up everything humanity wants to hear.
    If we put or try to have faith in our planet earth. We must shift a little change in what’s wrong with ourselves and what we’re doing to mother-nature herself.

    I’m very much in love what you expressed here. A side of you I have never read before, and I love it Daisy and you are the best human being on earth. I mean that from my very own heart. You are fantastic. 🙂

    Thank you so much for writing this and including me in it. 🙂 I try and do my best to inspire those who need a smile. 🙂

    • aaaaaaaaw Charlie – you never seem to amaze me with how soft hearted you can be. Your poems don’t portray this side to you. I love you for it even more 🙂

      • I love you too Daisy. 🙂

        Well, once in a great and rare while. I do tend to express my real feelings to the world. As you might have known of me – I hide behind surrealism and visuals. That’s what I love expressing as oppose to what you just read on my new poem. Don’t get me wrong I like it and enjoy it and its a big change in my direction of writing. So, thank you Daisy and I’m sending you lots of cyber-hugs and smiles. You are special to me and keep on sharing and expressing yourself to the world. 🙂

      • So many more hugs to you Charlie. I love what you do too. You stretch my mind with your writing. It is needed no matter if I don’t understand it sometimes. I feel it and that means pursuing to understand more and you more xx

  9. Yeah! Trust is a rare commodity these days…or so it seems. Excellent post, Daisy! ‘Revolution’ – meaning ‘Change’ is essential to growth – hopefully in in the right direction… 😉 Hugs! ❤

  10. This wasn’t a rant about politics, it was a well written reminder that we need to put faith in action. Made me think how clicking “Like” on a Facebook meme does so little to change minds, much less society.

  11. We have a referendum vote in UK soon to leave or stay in the European Union. Although I know it is an imperfect system, I vote to stay in it and try to change it from within. I think change from within is the best kind of change, rather than external changes being forced through! Let’s all try to chill out and change for the better within ourselves?! Except Daisy is allowed to rant as she does it so well! LOL! 🙂 How’s that for a response!? 🙂
