What do people expect? We need to take a look in the mirror. We want to hand over our power and the ability to govern our own lives to other people and then wonder why that power is abused and used to further the interest of those who we willingly agreed to let run our lives.
Until people are willing to take responsibility for governing their own lives and are willing to accept the risk that goes along with that, we will always be at the mercy of a ruling class and nothing more than willing slaves with only ourselves to blame.
We need to look in the mirror and examine our own underlying beliefs and misconceptions. Until we are free in mind, we will never be free in body. The answer lies with us, not with some freak we place on a podium.
“Rise like lions after slumber
in unvanquishable number
shake your chains to earth like dew
which in sleep had fallen on you
Ye are many they are few.”
–— Percy Bysshe Shelley
