Many people, it would appear, are disillusioned with the status quo. At the root of their dissatisfaction is the gradual loss of higher principles in society. Important ideals such as truth, integrity, and responsibility are landing on the garbage heap.
Good people don’t like it. Deep down they know, these fundamental principles (and others) are the foundation of the type of society they want to inhabit.
The wind of change is blowing, and it carries on it the word “No”. It’s time for a new vision, a new way of being.
Do you have a vision in your mind of what a good world would look and feel like? We can’t focus on all the negativity to achieve that. We must hold a vision and intention for the new. But first, we must say “no” and turn our backs on the old.
“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.” ~
“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
“Few travelled in these days, for, thanks to the advance of science, the earth was exactly alike all over. Rapid intercourse, from which the previous civilization had hoped so much, had ended by defeating itself. What was the good of going to Peking when it was just like Shrewsbury? Why return to Shrewsbury when it would all be like Peking? Men seldom moved their bodies; all unrest was concentrated in the soul.” ~
