We Outnumber The 1% – Why Don’t We Recognize Our Power?

We Outnumber The 1% – Why Don’t We Recognize Our Power?

There are less than one million people, world-wide, who wish to maintain the present system of exploitation. There are 6.9 billion of us. Numbers difficult to grasp so let me re-state it so: For every one of “them”, there are nearly seven thousand of us! The minute we act together is the same minute in which their system of exploitation will cease to exist. This is why “they” spend billions on black propaganda and carefully staged acts of terror aimed at dividing us against ourselves…Once we grasp, however, that it is not WE who are doing these things but that we are ALL victims of the self-same theatrical propaganda campaign then it becomes much easier to solve the problem. When we all grasp that we have been conned into believing that any particular group, nation or whatever is “out to get us” and that the only ones who are truly out to get us are the self-appointed “elite” who’ve been exploiting us all along then we can act together to eliminate our sorrows at their source.

Toby Israel: Though I consider myself a staunch advocate of non-violent protest, I don’t know what it feels like to have a family member or neighbor brutality victimized by police. I can’t say with absolute certainty that I would feel so inclined to peace if these threats formed a part of my daily experience. I believe that the reality surrounding the current situation in Baltimore might be too complex, too replete with senseless brutality and injustice, anger and inequality, to take a hard line on one side or the other of non-violence.
