Josh Begley works very hard to document and communicate what is going on in our world. Here he lays it right on the line, and reminds us that we live in a very different America than we did just a few short years ago.
Sometimes I scratch my head and wonder what is the difference between my generation, the boomers, who fought long and hard against war. Some say, oh, you had the draft, so people were much more motivated to protest. There were lots of better opportunities then for young people, much better than getting blown up half way across the world to further the agenda of a corrupt ruling class.
Well, then you have to congratulate the guys in charge. They side-stepped that issue this time around, and now, not only are most of our young people silent, but we boomers have by and large, also refused to stand up and protest our country's obviously out-of-control war agenda. I don't believe people really buy the "terrorist" threat as a justification either. We're just not that stupid. I think it's more of a group trance, or just...too busy just trying to put food on the table or pay the mortgage, or figure out how to live into old age with a shred of dignity.
So, I'm always heartened to see young people like Josh Begley working to communicate, to protest, and to attempt to alert other Americans to what is being done in their name.
I hope you watch. I hope you care, for we are all responsible, if only because we remain silent, and loyal to the perpetrators of atrocities.
