“I need to write, but I don’t know what to write.” I told my girlfriend, Carrie. “I really don’t know what to tell people. I’m angry. I’m hurt and I’m feeling defeated and if there’s one thing this campaign does not allow, it is negativity. I’m trying to put a positive spin on all of this, but the fact of the matter is that the corporations decided that Clinton was going to be President years ago and nothing was going to change that. I don’t think any of us realized how deep the corruption went. We knew it, but we weren’t prepared for it. I don’t know if it will take violent revolution to take back our government or if everyone just needs to run for office and I’m not sure either one would work anyway. I don’t know what to do and I certainly don’t know what to write, but I feel miserable and only writing helps with that.”

“Write about that.” Carrie said. “Write about the fact that you’re scared, angry and confused, because everyone else is too.”

Carrie is right.

Because I AM scared.

I AM angry.

And I AM confused.

And I know this is exactly what THEY want me to feel.

As I say “THEY”, I realize I sound like a crazy person, which to be fair, I surely am at this point…

I am the fly ramming it’s head into the windshield, hoping without reason, that the next time I will smash through this invisible barrier and find my freedom.

The fly’s friends say “Come play with us.”

The fly says “But there is this barrier imprisoning me.”

The flies laugh.

They do not see the barrier.

riot2

Like the insane fly, I feel the invisible barrier and like the insane fly I am bludgeoning myself to death trying to fight it.

I rage against the machine, but the machine feels no rage for me.

It is dispassionate, churning forward, crushing everything in it’s path, seemingly unstoppable, completely unconcerned with the life it severs between it’s blades.

The machine exists only to become stronger.

As science fiction writers pontificate the inevitability of Artificial Intelligence enslaving the human race, I watch this occur, but with corporations, before my very eyes.

I watch as they purchase my government and pass laws to protect their sovereignty.

I watch as they purchase the media, so they can program our minds.

I watch them tear down good people and exult fools, all in the name of selling products.

I listen to their lies , but rarely believe them.

I am defective.

The programming won’t take.

Syntax string error.

File not found exception.

Return to factory.

Wipe drive.

Scrap for parts.

riot4

The ones who cannot see the barrier say…

“Bernie lost. Hillary had more voters. Stop crying and unite the party or else we get Trump.”

It would be comical, if it weren’t so tragic.

There is nothing you can say to these people.

They are asleep in The Matrix and you cannot wake them.

If they had a desire to be awake, they would have awoken already.

I do not envy them their blissful sleep, nor do I begrudge them it.

It is just how they were programmed.

Willful ignorance is an effective method of maintaining one’s sanity.

The path to enlightenment is fraught with peril, but it is to those seeking the truth to whom I speak, when I say…

This was never about Bernie Sanders.

It actually pains me to say that, because I, like you, have tremendous love for this amazing man.

I, the cynical misanthrope, who held everyone with skepticism, fell madly, head over heels in love with a man I have never actually met.

So, there is a part of me, that just wants this whole thing to be about Bernie Sanders.

But this is not about Bernie Sanders.

This was never about Bernie Sanders.

When I was a child, I had the innocence required to hold rock stars in idolatry.

My bedroom was a shrine, walls covered with the musical prophets of my time.

One by one, the pictures and delusions came down, to be replaced with the harsh realities of adulthood, where simply keeping sane is an accomplishment that few could honestly lay claim to.

One by one the idealistic song lyrics were replaced with a 9 to 5 that became a 9 to 6  and then a 9 to 7 and all those ambitions of changing the world had to be fit into an occasional act of civil disobedience.

I marched for this cause or that cause, but wondered if I was doing anymore than just stroking my own desire to feel like I was actually making a difference…

And I doubted that I was making a difference.

Then Bernie Sanders stood up in a backyard somewhere in the Midwest.

He opened his mouth and said what I had been thinking my entire life.

And people came from miles around to hear this message.

Bernie Sanders saw the barrier and he asked us to fly into it with him.

Bernie Sanders reawakened a part of me that I thought was dead.

I started making t-shirts.

I hung his picture on my wall.

Bernie Sanders was and is my rock star.

So when I say “This was never about Bernie Sanders.” it cuts me very deeply, because I really wanted it to be about him.

I’ve seen the 80’s movie where the boy loses the girl, but gains a lesson about life and I’ve seen the 80’s movie where the girl wakes up and sees that the perfect boy was there all along.

I really wanted the world to wake up.

Just this once, I wanted the happy ending.

sayanything

From day one, Bernie told us, what this was about.

You can forgive us if we lost ourselves from time to time, as we were bathed in a light so bright, we were often intoxicated, our brains swimming in serotonin, flooded with the promise of revolution and starstruck by one so simple and humble.

Bernie Sanders was our flaming arrow, shot from a mile away, drifting unnoticed over the battlefield, with a trajectory destined for the Emperor’s heart.

But Sanders reminded us daily that it was “Not me, but US.” who were responsible for Our Revolution.

Bernie reminded us that WE are the arrows.

Bernie reminded us that revolution only happens when millions stand together.

Now, as the establishment gloats over another victory, taken at the expense of those they were sworn to serve…

As the Emperor swats away the flaming arrow and smiles indignantly, completely ignorant to the fact that a million more have already been launched and that there is simply no way to deflect them all.

As the establishment laughs at our great effort, I am reminded..

That this was never about Bernie Sanders.

This was always about YOU.

riot8

Just as a young Bernard Sanders stood up in 1962 to fight against segregation, YOU must stand up, every time you see injustice.

Just as Sanders had the guts to be dragged away in handcuffs, fighting every step of the way, WE must have the courage to stare evil in it’s face and not let our fears stand in the way of doing what is right.

Just as Bernie reluctantly accepted a position in government, so that he could serve the people of his community, we must also step up and take charge of our own government.

This was never about Bernie Sanders, but Sanders has been our light, leading us back to the path when we were lost.

This was never about Bernie Sanders, but Sanders reminded us of the importance of standing up and refusing to sit down in the face of oppression.

This was never about Bernie Sanders, but Sanders is the one who dusted us off and told us to get back in the game.

And I pledge to myself, to you, to my children and yes, to Bernie, to never forget his example.

I promise to oppose evil everywhere I see it.

I promise to feed the hungry and put the greater good ahead of my own gain.

I promise to take up positions of service when I am needed and I promise to oppose and expose those who use the suffering of others for their profit.

I promise to never settle for the lesser evil, but always strive for the greater good.

This was never about Bernie Sanders.

This has always been about revolution.

This has always been about us.

riot9

So what now?

Like I said, in the beginning, I don’t know…

But I’m searching..

I will be in Philadelphia on July 24th because Bernie Sanders asked me to be there and I strongly encourage you to use any and all means necessary to get there as well.

If you don’t have the money to go, then you need to go.

Our Revolution is about standing up for the poor.

If you are afraid that you will be arrested, then you need to be there.

Our Revolution is about standing up to government oppression.

If you feel that your presence there will not make a difference, then by all means, find a way to get to Philadelphia.

You need to see firsthand what a million people united can accomplish.

We do not go because we believe that the “super-delegates” will see us and grow a conscience.

We know that the majority of them are sociopaths that care nothing for human suffering.

We know that they have already been bought and paid for, before the first vote was even cast.

We know they will support the evil one, because they want to protect their power.

We do not go to change their sick, selfish-minds.

We go to stand in solidarity with one another.

We go to remind them that Our Revolution is strong and that if you oppress us then we will come back more powerful than before.

We go to be the conscience of those who have no conscience.

We go because they built a wall to keep us out.

We go because they were planning to put us in prison, before the ACLU stepped in and said “NO WAY!!!” and because to fear one’s government is completely unacceptable.

We go, because to not go would let them think that we were okay with what they are doing.

We go to let them see the generations of voters, activists and volunteers that will be working against them.

We go to Philadelphia for liberty.

We go for justice.

We go because we are revolutionaries.

    1. Margaret, I sincerely hope so. I’m 63 and have been an advocate for human rights all of my life. It’s been disheartening at times to expect to find a leader with any integrity to speak of. I think it’s the nature of holding public office, as if corruption must somehow go hand-in-hand, as if one must sell one’s soul. I was so immensely buoyed and hopeful about Bernie. I just hope this younger generation keeps carrying forward the message that we must regain our constitutional freedoms from the corporate powers that be. We must take back our country. Aloha.

  5. Sanders was a long time, establishment politician running for elected office within the two party system. He campaigned hard, he put forward detailed policies and spent heavily on advertising (particularly in California) to attract voters. But he came up short. He lost. Like many politicians who lose, he said that winning was never the real aim.

    Time to face reality – there was never a revolution, there was only an establishment politician attempting to become the Democratic nominee for the Presidency. Supporting his campaign would never bring real change. Trying to influence the policy platforms of the Democratic Party is a weak response that won’t bring about real change. Protesting outside the Democratic convention just tells the world you’re angry with the actions of the party. That’s just petty.

    Fact is, all the hardcore Bernie supporters are people who willingly embraced the establishment, two party political system, so any claims to be a “revolutionary” are a joke. I’d suggest you take down the Bernie picture from your wall, face reality and start to look at groups and movements that are successfully fighting oppression and injustice from outside the system.

    1. Wish someone had told the Super Delegates that Sanders is an establishment politician! Maybe then he wouldn’t be losing them by a 12-1 ratio.

      Sanders wasn’t funded my corporate interests. He’s proven that there’s another way to campaign for the Presidency, that millions of people are ready to support someone who isn’t beholden to the Robber Barons.

      When the banks screw up, and they’re about to collapse, and they’re asking for a bail out, I want a President who isn’t friends with them. Someone who stands on the side of the proletariat. Maybe that doesn’t strike you as real change but it’s significant to me.

      Yeah, he didn’t win. But he took far left issues into the mainstream and dragged a corporatist neoliberal party into the twenty first century. There’s a good chance that the next President of the United States will be a woman who supports a high minimum wage and free college. Those policies are going to improve the quality of life of tens of millions of poor and middle class people. If that’s not real change to you, I don’t know what it is you’re expecting exactly.

      And I don’t see how you can be so haughty about protesting. It’s a constitutional right that people have died for. It’s what separates us from tin pot dictatorships.

You fail to acknowledge that he has successfully brought citizens back into the process of Democratic government that were sick and tired of the whole system and decided not to take part in it as a result. He has opened the eyes of millions of people and given hope. That in its self is a ground breaking event in this country s history.

  6. Seems that many people recognize that there are increasing unsolved problems, and a LOT of diverse notions about how to go about solving those problems.

    Yet, it should seem obvious that the FIRST priority is to to develop a decision process that lets us actually define and solve problems.

    Really, consider that every election cycle we sit around sweating over the results, pinning our hopes and dreams on a favorable outcome, and we do this like some gambling addict in Vegas.
    “If only we win this election, we can start fixing things.”
    Compared to:
    “One more pull of this handle, and if it hits, I can pay my rent.”

    Well, that’s the problem isn’t it. We use a system that forces the public to play casino circus games to attempt resolution to real world problems.
    You understand what casino circus games are right??
    Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but the house always wins.

    The systems we use are failing, dismally to resolve the conflicts of modern society.
    We need to fix the process we use to consider and enact resolutions, because what we use now ain’t working.

  7. hahaha. YOU ARE REVOLUTIONARIES??? hahahahahaha. Sanders is endorsing Clinton soon…dummies. About time, too. The man is arrogant but he is finally behaving. Go to Philly dummy – but know this: You would not know a revolution if it crapped on your head. You’re punks who got punked. Hillary Clinton is a true revolutionary and has been for 40 years. Ask any woman who is not up Noam Chomsky’s spoiled white ass.

    You are so delusional it is actually really really funny. This is comedy, right? You slow are witted children – who know NOTHING about real life – actually saying Clinton voters are in “the Matrix” – hahahah. Pot , meet, Kettle. Y’all got play so badly it is actually embarrassing for you….if you were smart enough to be embarrassed. Sanders worked your asses for money, enjoyed a great time. And paid his wife handsomely along with free trips to Rome etc. On your dime. Sanders is a fraud and a loser. And your “movement” is a called a “movement” because is crap nonsense.

    There has never been a larger group of moronic punks in American politics than Sanders cultists. You joined a personality cult and are not pretending you’re not in a personality cult. The man played you for the fool your are, took your pizza money and had a FANTASTIC year….on your dime. Pray Jane figures out how to cover her tracks.

    I am not convinced no one under 26 should be allowed to vote. You all are just too stupid…stupid and yet arrogant.

    Clinton is great. I am not in “the matrix” – I am also not in some white elite entitled wonderland like you Sanders kids. Move to Vermont – be with your tribe.

I say they will never win me over because they are both gaining money and power from the other 99% of Americas and other countries that are being terrorized by their own governments and terrorist organizations.

I have been seeing the same thing, and it always had to be us and not any particular “leader”, it follows Chomsky’s philosophy on anarcho-syndicalist structure of production and governance. I also think things were deliberately “set up” for OUR political revolution (not his). In game theory there is only one way to obtain a fair outcome in a “rigged system” and that is a tactic called “spite” where a player does not play against the other advantaged” players but rather developes a strategy to overwhelm the game/system itself to force fair play. We are the final level of the game, not him, they wanted us to take the lead and the power and win the game ourselves.

  18. I’m writing this as a Bernie supporter who disagrees very strongly with what you’ve written, a poetic but romanticized, overwrought version of what being a revolutionary is. I needn’t point out more than the images you’ve chosen to run with your words. Whipping chains and tire irons at police? Battle gear and barricades in the streets? Flipping off the bad guys? That’s what you consider revolutionary? I’ve seen this before, played out many times. At the Democratic Party convention in ’68 (yeah, I’m a geezer like Bernie. I was 24 then.) Among the many thousand of people who came there to protest war and influence their representatives, there was a large contingent of SDS folks there dressed just like the people in your photos, battle helmets, bandanas, sticks and bats, the whole deal. And they ran around and got clunked by the cops and tear gassed. Other than that, they didn’t do shit. The kind of self possessed posturing you’re describing is not what revolutionary is. What is it then? Not unsurprisingly, Bernie has indeed given us the best guidance. The hardest, most revolutionary, most impactful thing we can do in our broken democracy is represent people honestly, without the corrupting influence of outside money and corporate lobbying. That’s what Bernie does. He’s not telling people to go to the streets and fight with police. He’s asking for a “political’ revolution. That means engaging, running for office, changing laws, changing the way we make decisions as we govern in our society? I used to think when I was younger that the system was the problem. But the system, in theory at least, is brilliant. Representative democracy is not the matrix. It’s a system that works well if people actively participate in it. It works when people who can’t be bought off engage it, take it on, run for office, lend support. Bernie knows. That’s why he’s still engaged in it. He’s not leaving it. He’s asking us to engage, too. How many of you are running for office, at any level, or are thinking about? How many are actively supporting progressive candidates? How many are helping to get out the vote? Our system has been hijacked. We’ve got to get it back. How many of you have, at least, that understanding of what a ‘political’ revolution is? I suspect not many. My guess is you’d rather get all dressed up in your ‘revolutionary’ gear and go get tear gassed and have your heads conked. Then you can brag for the rest of your years how ‘revolutionary’ you were back in ’16. Good luck with that.

  20. It IS about Bernie. Let’s face it. He is the leader of our Movement. If he endorses the liar, he is essentially telling us that what we fought so hard to do, change the system, is no longer POSSIBLE, no longer worth fighting for. I’m writing this on the eve of a so-called endorsement that I cannot believe is true. Bernie said he would go all the way to the convention. He promised US, his Movement, that he would. If he is unable to fight with us and go all the way, then how does he expect us to? The platform means nothing to Pinnochio Shills. Money and power are all she cares about. If he endorses, it’s over. The liar will give Bernie a big pat on the back and cackle as he exits the stage. Makes me want to puke. I like your writing a lot, but this IS about Bernie. Revolutionaries don’t exit before the fight is over. They just don’t. I hope Bernie surprises us all. And fuck the media.
