You’re angry. Beaten down.
Unappreciated and underpaid.
Hamstrung by the powers that be.
Taken advantage of. And you’ve reached a breaking point.
The status quo is causing pain and it must go.
Change has become a moral imperative. Time to rally the forces.
To tear it down. Move away from the current paradigm.
Away from tyranny, oppression, inequality.
Away from ignorance, negligence, malevolence.
Away from disrespect, injustice, intolerance
Away from lies, deceit, defeat.
Away, away, away.
“Away from” is a rally cry, but it’s not an organizing principle.
It’s about tearing down, not building up.
Away from is an incendiary device. But what will you build once the the bastards have fallen and and the wall has tumbled? Once you’re free of your cage? And how? With whom? Toward what end?
What rules, ethics and constructs will guide you? What new reality will you create? What principles and structures will guide the reconstruction? What better resolutions, outcomes, experiences will you leave in your wake of righteous destruction?
“Away from” can start a revolution, but only “toward” can finish it. Click to tweet
So, my question is not “what do you want to tear down?”
But rather, “what will you build in it’s place?”
What are you moving toward?
