Big Hearts With Little Corporate Minds

I was a broken-down mutt, curled up on the side of the road, waiting to die. Nursed back to health through the kindness of others. People that had every reason to spit on me and keep on walking.

It is in our nature to care for each other. A great power slumbers in our hearts. But I look around and see so many that feel as if they’ve been rendered powerless; that everyone and everything else, has a say in the direction of their life but them.

The corporate community wants a world without spirituality and hope. They want us all to look and think the same. They want us unable to do anything for ourselves without the corporations doing it for us.

The psychology of this ultramodern-social structure being imposed upon us is unnatural.

Every day a little more of our individuality fades away.

Some are thriving in this world and don’t want to rock the boat.

Why should they? I get it.

Maybe you’re skating on this ice; doing figure eights and other fancy shit. You don’t want to be dipped in the freezing water with the losers that are already drowning.

But understand: you are an endangered species.

Everyday the numbers of the poor, addicts, prisoners, disabilities, and unemployed grow exponentially; while the numbers of the successful dwindle.

So, skate on I say!

But one day…

One day–one false move–you may fall through the ice and wind up down in the water with the rest of us.
