Your alleged "leaders" often believe you are "incapable" and feeling too powerless to be more proactive than simply attending rallies and marches in a passive way. The flyer text here is meant to do two things: inspire you, and many others, to become more proactive--in a basic resistance of consciousness! Here is a giant pile of deep info that should inspire!
Students! Youth! Persons tired of passive following of leaders! Anyone who'd like to get information out to a public beseiged with lies and hysteria. Assist them in thinking critically WHILE helping them PERSONALLY with info they would not usually find in our so-called "free society".
This is a sample idea for a flyer you might wish to hand out around your town and school. And hopefully you will make something even better than this (or you may simply wish to use this one--more power to you!)!
I myself have been passing out this flyer in various parts of the u.s.a. I find handing this out is one way in which to promote consciousness and self-liberation (I hope you'll agree).
Note the method of this flyer: On the one hand to catch the attentions of a VERY broad section of the public, and on the other, to promote critical thinking about the way in which our so-called "leaders" think and strategized in a kind of perpetual war against all of us.
Feedback and critique (on design and content) is highly desired, so to possibly make this flyer even better!
In case you didn't know…
"When I go around in America and I see the bulk of the White People, they do not feel oppressed—they feel powerless…We see the physical genocide that they are attempting to inflict upon [American Indians], and we understand the psychological genocide that they have already inflicted upon their own people…"—John Trudell, Santee-Sioux spokenword artist who lost his entire family, including 3 young daughters, to a very suspicious fire at the height of the 'cointelpro' era (an FBI program which illegally attacked a huge variety of legal dissent).
Note: All info herein has been compiled, over years, by an anonymous independent getting no payment except the joy of helping his fellow people. Get online, free, at your local public university or suburban municipal library! (best outfitted)
