I wonder why we allow ourselves to feel safe in this world. I wonder about the people who don't worry about their situations, their lives, and their worlds. Why do you believe what those in power tell you? When, deep down, we all know they tell us these things so that they themselves can do whatever they please. They would say anything to keep us calm and supportive... to keep us submissive and quiet. And, when it suites them, they play on our fears--even keep us afraid and needy--to get what they want from us. AND WE LET THEM. We let them feed us this propaganda bullshit, and we eat it up, even thank them for it. We rarely if ever question them, never wonder why they are allowed to commit crimes, but the poor are not. Never wonder why they get away with MURDER, but a damned mother of five can't steal a few cans of soup without going to jail.
We let our jails be overrun with 'hopeless' cases... fill them with high school drop-outs and lower class minorities... let our children grow up
