Every little bit…
Everything in our society is establish by us. People. Individuals.
And when people come together to reach a common goal then great, magnificent feats can be achieved.
But every little bit counts. Everything that had been worked at so hard to be established is really a jigsaw puzzle of unique people’s ideas and opinions.
So, if you want change, it is the work of every individual.
But, if you want change to happen, it’ll have to be the work of the masses.
Take the protests and unrest in Egypt, for example. Here is Khaled Said,a shy, soft-spoken 28-year-old who ran a small business in Alexandria. He was one victim of the corruption of the police force in Egypt. He was beaten to death. The police blamed it on the crime he committed. His story was the spark for many Egyptians. Their equal, combined rage over this young man’s death is only a small part of the current happening.
But it’s a cycle. The result of such mass rage, is the anger of the very people. If you want to quell the rage of the masses, you have to make every individual happy.
I guess it’s the same for the media too. As much as it seems like a solid, single thing, it’s really the opinion of people. The opinion is just, perhaps a little truer, and factual, and backed up more first-hand stories. Perhaps then, there is no truth. There is only the opinion of each and every unique person. But when the opinions of many people come together, and common ideas and thoughts and facts are put together, then maybe now that so many people agree on the same thing, there is truth.
So it’s simply a cycle.
