Rebellion - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
...So by the time I’m done the meek are going to be inheriting the earth and the “big boys” are going to have to decide to turn over new leaves and be meek. They can do it early and preserve a chunk of their cash for themselves, or they can go down fighting and end up as broke as the low level workers they’ve been using and abusing for decades. You doubt I can do it? Watch me.
In the future it could be said that I started the rebellion accidentally. I could understand that. How many forty year old housewives do that? We’re over the hill, saggy round the middle and our best days are behind us, right? For the most part you’d be right, but not this time. I want it to be known that I meant to do what I am setting out to accomplish. I am planning a bloodless rebellion that will be less “revolutionary” than “evolutionary.” I have planned out the changes without ever attending a political rally, barely ever leaving the house, without making a single speech or being a public figure other than a fiction writer under a fictitious name.
I plan to stay in my kitchen with my ethical bean coffee and fresh baked cinnamon buns, I can make that butter-rich dough with my eyes closed. You don’t know it yet, but you’re going to help me, and you don’t have to break any laws to do it or act significantly different that you do now. But together, you and I, we’re going to save the earth. We “little people” of all ages and all backgrounds are going to bring down the mega-corporations while looking like obedient little sheep. They’re going to growl and be confused when they step up the fear and we don’t run to our wallets like we always do. It will be peaceful, empowering and save us money - how? Because we won’t be giving it to them. Our local economies will flourish, artisans will do good trade, artists will be valued again. We're going to get our "free will" back instead of being told what to think, how to feel, what love and happiness really look like.
