CFN – Justin Trudeau sparked a storm of media coverage this week when he called Harper MP Peter Kent a “Piece of Shit” in Parliament. It reminded people of his Dad’s “Fuddle Duddle” remark, but it hits certain notes of frustration that millions of people are feeling around the world.
Whether in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, or many parts of the US or Canada people are feeling frustrated. They’re hurt; afraid and slowly; just slowly starting to get angry.
While what Mr. Trudeau did was wrong in many ways I have a hunch it’s going to up the ante in his eventual leadership run for the Liberals. Why? Because there’s a false patina of political conformity that we live by that people are finally starting to reject.
Like lobsters in the pot realizing that they in fact are not simply sitting in a warm bath people are just slowly starting to wake up to the multitude of injustices in the world.
And they are. It’s not conspiracy theory mumbo jumbo.
You don’t have to be an Alex Jones supporter to see what’s going on in the world. It started the day that John F Kennedy was murdered.
Accountability. Justice. The System working. The dream has long ago turned for many into a nightmare and there is no little blue pill to take that can fix it. Our world is broken and messed up. It’s as simple as that.
How did we get there? I don’t have the answers. I’m not that smart. I’m just a humble soul scribbling from a city of 50,000 people on a polluted river in a city run by a few cliques of people that are just as much part of the problem locally as bigger fish are on the world scale.
Again it comes down to accountability. If the big fish can get away with wholesale rape of our system why should anyone follow the rules? If the tax system is rigged to protect big fish why would anyone not want to cheat on their taxes and the system?
There’s not enough room in this one piece to cover this large a subject, but for today, if you’re still reading this, I’d ask you to take another moment from your day and think about how this lack of accountability in our society effects us at all levels of society and think about what you can do to change the world.
Because that’s what it’s going to take. Millions of people deciding to take action; one step at a time to make changes. Or not. Are you a human being? Does your life have value?
In the meanwhile here’s a video clip from one of the most famous scenes in film history.
