THE beast AND I
last spring we were feeling wonderful :))
we thought --no: we were Convinced that something BIG was happening, at last.
the Arab Spring had already set a precedent, then our Spaniard Brothers (#15M) had continued carrying the torch, and just days later, #25M, it was our turn.
the evenings and nights on the square, the yelling, the debates, the acts of protest, the happenings, the music, the screenings, the live connection with other european cities, the BrotherHood, the MAGIC... it was the power of a feeling, of a Knowledge that Here and Now the wonder is taking place, the new earth is ours, the future is now.
i was mistaken. we were mistaken.
the System --in reality: the system-- had yet to show its teeth; the plague not only was not cured or even reduced, it actually started spreading [cuz that's what plagues do] gaining new power, multiplying its tentacles and its heads: the heads of the Beast. sure, some victories did happen on our side, some [minor?] samples of an impact on the criminal establishment(s) appeared, occasionally; but we hadn't calculated the hypnotic mesmerising effect of its perverted nature on all its servants. we had not.
which only meant that the battles grew stronger, more intense and more fierce, and less far between. until they turned into this Giant --in reality: giant-- battle that now involves many more people(s), many more lives, many many more hopes and visions and legitimate dreams that need to be restored. a HUGE cry for Justice, until now dormant - absent - hostile, is producing a deafening sound and becoming the heroic soundtrack of this phase of the glorious(?) 21st century.
it's the beast against US. against You. against Me.
it's a dying beast. it has to be handled with care: relentlessly, stubbornly, courageously but fairly and carefully. the time for words has ended. we --you and i, and more and more people(s) every minute-- know who our opponent is. and most of all, we know exactly what has to be done.
the Future Is Now.
