“Because inequality provokes anger, unequal societies require penal systems to crush rebels and intimidate everyone else. In America, unprecedented inequality has gone hand-in-hand with an unprecedented expansion of the prison system.”

no amount of positive change in the world

which has advanced the betterment of us

as a species,

has come about by staring into the face of

idiocy, malicious intent, straight out murder,

slavery, oppression & genocide &

then trying to win it over with

concessions &

compassion---

it is discontent & rage

that have come about as a direct result of the forces

in this world

which think that they can do to you what they want

when they want---

without it, there would be no

progress.

 

anger riles the individual

the individual gains strength

the strong individual speaks to another &

two become four,

four become eight---

sooner than later,

anger & anger alone

has brought together a mass of people

who understand that what has been going on

can no longer be so---

 

SOMETHING
HAS TO CHANGE

 

anger produces power in the “powerless”

by allowing them the courage to say that there is

nothing to lose

when it comes to striving for

rights denied to you---

 

hold onto your anger

clench it in your fist & never let it go

for what you have inside you is

just---

what you have inside you is a need to utilize every

part of your

being &

if your anger is all you have at your disposal

(that which cannot be tainted by those outside you),

then it is more beautiful than anything &

it is yours & yours alone---

it is representative of your own voice,

your own life &

your own ability to resist the destruction of your

will.
