The Lie We Live
At this moment you could be anywheredoing anything Instead you sit alone before a screen. So what's stopping us from doing what wewant, being where we want to be. Each day we wake up in the same room and follow the same path, to live the same day as yesterday. Yet at one time each day was a new adventure. Along the way something changed. Beforeour days were timeless, now our days are scheduled. Is this what it means to be grown upé To be freeé
But are we really freeé Food. Water. Land. The very elements we need to survive are owned by corporations. There's no food for us on trees, no freshwater in streams, no land to build a home. If you try and take what the earth provides you'll be locked away. So we obey their rules. We discover the world through a textbook.
For years we sit and regurgitate what we're told. Tested and graded like subjects in a lab. Raised not to make a difference in this world. Raised to be no different. Smart enough to do our job but not to question why we do it. So we work and work left with no time to live the life we work for. Until a day comes when we are too old to do our job It is here we're left to die Our children take our place in the game. To us our path is unique but together we are nothing more thanfuel. The fuel that powers the elite.
The elite who hide behind the logos of corporations. This is their world. And their most valuable resource is not in the ground. It is us. We build their cities. We run their machines. We fight their wars. After all, money isn't what drives them. It's power. Money is simply the tool they use to control us. Worthless pieces of paper we depend on to feed us, move us, entertain us.
They gave us money, and in return we gave them the world. Where there were trees that cleaned our air, are now factories that poison it. Where there was water to drink, is toxic waste that stinks. Where animals ran free are factory farms where they are born and slaughtered endlessly for our satisfaction. Over a billion people are starving despite us having enough food for everybody. Where does it all goé 70% of the grain we grow is fed to the animals you eat for dinner Why help the starvingé You can't profit off them. We are like a plague sweeping the earth.
Tearing apart the very environment that allows us to live We see everything as something to be sold. As an object to be owned. But what happens when we have polluted the last riveré Poisoned the last breath of airé Have no oil for the trucks that bring us our foodé When will we realize money can't be eaten, that is has no valueé We aren't destroying the planet. We're destroying all life on it. Every year thousands of species go extinct. And time is running out before we're next.
