The people, it would seem, have had enough. All across the planet we are seeing an increase in uprisings and protests. The little word “no” is spreading like a virus.
The people are tired of many things, but, at the root of it all is the gradual loss of higher principles in our societies. Important ideals like truth, integrity and responsibility are landing on the garbage heap. And people don’t like it. Deep down they know, these fundamental principles (and others) are the foundation of a good society.
“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.” ~
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” ~
“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.” ~
“Civil unrest occurs when the feelings of overwhelming powerlessness hit critical mass.” ~ Michael Connelly
