I’m the perfect rebel, too unlikely to be taken seriously until it’s too late. Maybe I will catch a bullet in a few years or some other fate, but there are folks who don’t even live to see my age or have a fraction of the amount of love in their lives that I’ve already had, so who am I to hide under a rock? I can’t live with buying plastics that are destroying the earth. I can’t live with buying food laced with chemicals we aren’t supposed to eat. I can’t live with animals being “farmed” in concentration camps - that isn’t farming. I can’t live with our children being pressured in a school system that treats them no better than cattle, controlling them with fear tactics. I can’t live with a world where our politicians are bought by those with the deepest pockets and the population is controlled with fear and the wage/food dynamic. I won’t shut up and I won’t put up.
