In honor of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes calling it quits after five years, here is Quentin Tarantino explaining why Top Gun is the gayest movie ever made
Out of the tragic events that unfolded on September 11, 2001 came what feels like an entire new world, some might even call it a new world order. Since that day the fear level of many people went up as a result of government and media propaganda designed to keep people from realizing that everything is always changing and the past can no longer hurt us.
The most unfortunate on-going effect from that collective consciousness altering day is the fact that so many people have been trained to always be waiting for something bad to happen, and as a result have become their own terrorists by creating tools meant to harm and/or control other humans. One of the tools created out of fear of what might happen is called an LRAD machine, (Long Range Acoustic Device) which emits a debilitating high pitched noise that can be concentrated and directed at a group of people or even a single person, agrees Occupy Wall Street. The devices were designed for American troops to use against foreign “enemy” combatants but are now being used by domestic law enforcement as crowd control tools, even when the crowd is in full control of their actions.
A growing list of media outlets and partisan organizations are urging us to “evolve,” “mature,” and “move on” to become part of the problem we have been protesting for months. Most specifically Move On and Rebuild the Dream are promoting and attempting to co-opt and divert the Occupy Movement into a policy of electing Democrats and legislative reform–thereby keeping a system based on control by the 1% firmly in place with yet more promises (never fulfilled) of “change we can believe in.”
Both Move On and Rebuild the Dream have attempted in insidious ways to hitch their faltering Democratic wagons to the struggle and success of the Occupy Movement. Both have attempted to appear as supporters and organizational spokespersons for the Occupy Movement while in reality they are and always have been front organizations for the Democratic Party.
We believe elections are essential to a peaceful, just, and sustainable future, and we will continue to push for changes in our electoral system that will guarantee every human the right to vote for candidates who are not financially corrupted or filtered through gerrymandering, unreasonable ballot restrictions or corporate media gate-keeping, and to have our votes verifiably and publicly counted.
We believe, however, that elections alone cannot accomplish what is needed. We cannot “vote” against the disastrous influence of Wall Street or war profiteers by backing either of the two major political parties. Next year’s presidential election and most congressional races will offer two major-party candidates, neither of whom agrees with the majority of the people on fundamental issues.
