The Yellow Vest Movement Has Spread Like Wildfire Across the World




If you’re interested in or somewhat confused by the Yellow Vest Movement (YVM), do yourself and society a service by reading this article in its entirety.

To begin, the YVM is more or less Occupy 2.0; it’s an organic response to control and corruption even if it has been manipulated by powerful interests (including via misrepresentation in the corporate media). In short, it rejects the corporatocracy, otherwise known as the crony capitalism we have today. It rejects putting profits before the people and the environment. And it rejects greedy and evil behaviour by those in power.

Ultimately, it rejects oppression.

There is a leader of the YVM, but it is not a person. Instead, it is an agreement. This interconnection has sometimes been spoken in historic incarnations, but not always. Regardless, the ancient union between the people can be summed up with one word: freedom.

So whilst we enjoy the beginning of Twenty Nineteen, it is also important to pay respect to the hundreds of millions of people across our world who are somewhere between frustrated and outright furious with the corrupted design of our social system. They genuinely want change for the people, and our future generations.

And that’s unity, right there. Embrace it for a moment, because it’s proof we can come to an agreement which would lead to real world changes, if we so choose.

So make no mistake: if the YVM is to be fully successful it needs as many people as possible to feel how they’ve been scammed and lied to, because they cannot un-feel it. In other words, the public needs to get on board. This essay, therefore, is designed to contribute to a much needed civil discourse about this growing global dissent, including encouraging a strong focus on the fundamental flaws of our systemic blueprint.

The Spread of the YVM

Once again the power of the people has been mightily illustrated by individuals coming together to say “enough is enough”, this time culminating as the global spread of the YVM.

Originating in France late 2018, the Yellow Vest symbol has been adopted by dozens of other countries from both the West and East. For example, many European countries have held strong demonstrations over the last several weeks. Thousands of Taiwanese people protested against tax injustices. Iraqis who donned yellow vests demanded improved public services. Canadians are gallantly stepping up with a FB group of over 110K members who have organised recurring rallies on each Sunday. And Australians have protests organised across the country for the 19th January, 2019.

The list goes on.

The Participants of the YVM

There are as many motives for joining the YVM as there are people. Each individual is unique in their experience and therefore their perspective. Many are just ordinary people who have been personally impacted by poor policy design, and others are more active participants in the truth and freedom network which has slowly been expanding in response to a rebirthing of ancient philosophy and powerful people conspiring in our world.

Many of these conspiracies seem outrageous to the public. Regardless of which ones are true and which ones aren’t, they still deserve to be put on the stage of public discourse because many of them are accurate accounts of reality. That needs to be facilitated, and not mocked, by the mainstream media, which is obviously the opposite of what’s happening. This is one potent reason why public trust in mainstream media has plummeted over recent years and why the way information is disseminated and therefore absorbed throughout our society has been shifting towards independent, online media. Furthermore, it’s also why dismantling the old and new media monopolies is a key target of activists and dissenters.

Regardless, members of the YVM want the same thing: justice. Unfortunately however, most people who have consciously unleashed their deep disdain against the corruption of the political and corporate elite have too narrow focus, such as on peripheral issues which don’t account for the core design flaws of our social system. Others concentrate on punishing those in power, instead of how to transfer the power back to the people. And others focus solely on transforming the meta-model of our social system, calling for anarcho-capitalism, minarchism, a Resource-Based-Economy (RBE) or some other futurist romanticism.

The Resistance to the Resistance

The Yellow Vest protests originated in France and has therefore been dubbed ‘The French Revolution 2.0’. Yet there are some people who believe protests are useless and that government is bad, full stop.

They say that government is inherently corrupt and therefore the only goal should be to shut it down. I empathise with this perspective, however much nuance is missed with such black and white views. For example, many protests over our history have resulted with the change sought, regardless if the goals were misguided or not. Yet even if a protest is on the right target but it fails to deliver real change in the system, there were still many people who were educated about the issues throughout the process.

That is still a win for the expansion of our collective consciousness.

In addition, governments aren’t going anywhere soon, nor should they. Whilst I admire the philosophy and ethics of anarchism (i.e. no government, people rule themselves etc.), it is dangerous and unrealistic to wish for it in our current era. Maybe over the coming decades if we begin to qualify as an ‘enlightening species’, but right now there are too many cultural clashes, too much power in wrong places, too much psychopathy, and too much dangerous weaponry to even begin considering removing the managerial systems we have in place.

Now of course it’s important to identify the potential macro-models we could revolutionise our future with, as well as acknowledge the many symptoms of our sick social structure, however we desperately need to take control of the core infrastructure to initiate incremental shifts towards a more just and honourable systemic design for ourselves and our forthcoming generations.

After all, there is little agreement on the goals, let alone the paths to achieve them. That’s why we also need to ensure an inclusive, rational focus which builds unity through agreement, which in turn would educate mainstream mindsets and alternative thinkers alike on the deep systemic problems and their potential solutions, including how their liberty has been stripped away by an increasingly centralised control system.

Therefore, the initial steps should focus on minimising government interference in our lives, ensuring it is truly representative of the people and is servicing our true needs. This would obviously include basing all laws on individual liberty, meaning the individual has supreme authority over themselves, whilst also being held accountable for doing no harm unless in self-defence.

And do not forget: society needs to be re-educated on so many levels which will take at least a generation or two to achieve, so we need to be mindful of this when discussing how to move forward.

So make no mistake: with a greater focus on what we do agree on, as well as how we could evolve that agreement, we would no doubt encourage many more people to drink from the fountain of freedom and then guide others to do the same.

Refocusing the YVM

I have spent many years monitoring and documenting the current expansion of our collective consciousness. There’s the good, the bad and the ugly. The good is an ongoing expansion, the bad is a plateaued expansion and the ugly is getting lost in conspiratorial dogmas which are dead ends at best, and self-abusive at worst.

During this time I have focused on three primary areas, which are metaphysics, personal development and social change. All three are relevant here. For example, a core experience in metaphysical exploration is deepening our connection with connection, something that we need to do amongst ourselves if we are to literally change the system for the better.

In addition, personal development is relevant because taking exceptional care of all the layers of our health is the greatest rebellion we can have against a sick system. It’s also required so that we converse more inclusively with each other, especially those we disagree with, because it increases the success rate of facilitating change as well as reinforces our harmonisation with each other.

And in terms of social change, there are some key design areas that are 100% necessary to focus on if we want to revolutionise our world, efficiently and effectively.

These themes thread throughout this article, both subtly and explicitly.

Building on our Agreement for Freedom

My most recent article on the YVM reached into the hundreds of thousands of people because it was republished across many independent news sites. I was grateful that it went so far. In it I argued the need to create universal agreements that would actually initiate real systemic change.

Now be assured, what follows isn’t the ‘be all and end all’; it’s just a series of suggestions that I hope will encourage greater public discourse. It is designed to guide, not control. Now that I’ve made that clear, the formula for swift social shifts is quite simple, at least in theory:

  1. Agree on some basic values that most people would support, especially the public;
  2. Agree on some basic principles for guiding the change;
  3. Agree on the core flaws in the system and their potential solutions, which would create real change;
  4. Share these agreements with the media and the public to increase their support;
  5. As a united front, force our governmental employees to act on the will of the people.

In the previously mentioned article I identified some basic values to illustrate how we can easily begin to come to an agreement:

I’ll make this short and sharp. The six key values are:

  1. Love over hate;
  2. Truth over lies;
  3. Freedom over enslavement;
  4. Happiness over suffering;
  5. Justice over injustice; and
  6. Peace over war.

I did this to not just present how simple it is to identify ways we do innately agree with each other, but to also show the world where we fundamentally stand.

Moving on, the four key principles I suggested were:

  1. Informed choice (meaning the requirement of an honest media and government);
  2. Sovereignty (meaning all humans should have supreme authority over themselves);
  3. The Golden Rule (meaning do no harm unless in self-defence); and
  4. Decentralisation (meaning all services from government and otherwise should be locally organised).

Okay, now we have a good template for how we can unify. Yet, how can we actualise the change? The answer is obvious: by agreeing on key reforms that as a national citizenry we expect our governments to abide by.

Introducing RIC and His Pockets for Change

There is a dire need to focus on the core design flaws of our social system and their potential resolutions because they will undoubtedly remove the power of the political and corporate elite and give it back to the people. I proposed this and my previous article to an Australian Yellow Vest Group and what follows are some amendments according to the feedback.

So without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to RIC, the leading representative of the YVM:

Hi, I’m RIC. I embody Referendums Initiated by the Citizens (RIC), otherwise known as Citizen Initiated Referendums (CIR). Governments have lost their way and are now controlled by big money, instead of by the people. That’s why we need referendums aimed at the primary pockets of change.

​What follows, therefore, are the core areas of the system that require immediate and lasting reform:

  1. Electoral Reform to remove private money from politics, to bar lobby groups and vested interests from political decision-making and to dismantle the two party system so independent community representatives are embedded into the political structure;
  1. Monetary Reform to create a publicly-owned money supply, just like the Commonwealth Bank of Australia used to be when run by Denison Miller in the early part of the 20th Century;
  1. Banking Reform to dismantle the ‘too-big-to-fail’ banks, separate commercial and investment banking (through the Glass-Steagall Act) and create public banks that invest all profits from money creation (such as mortgages and credit cards) into social programs and infrastructure;
  1. Tax Reform to abolish all taxes and institute a transaction tax (similar to the Tobin tax) so that all tax loopholes are closed and all individuals and corporations contribute fairly (at a flat rate of just a few per cent, this would at least double current tax revenue due to eliminating tax havens, tax fraud and untaxed speculative spending by the big banks);
  1. Law Reform to ensure all legislation aligns with the Constitution and the sovereignty principle;
  1. Medicine Reform to ensure all natural and synthetic medicines are inexpensive, accessible and legal, as well as create a healthy mainstream food and water supply (yes, food and water are medicine too);
  1. Education Reform to ensure schooling and adult training fosters holistic learning, cooperation, self-discovery and health and life skills, as well as honestly educates on how the monetary and governmental systems work, including the natural rights we all born with;
  1. Media Reform to dismantle the traditional and online monopolies to foster free speech and ensure true public debate and citizen-based investigative journalism reaches the mainstream, as well as guarantee serious penalties for unstated ‘opinion’, fabrications and sponsorships in public reporting and journalism.

I know many of you reading this probably have a lot to contribute to the above. Maybe you have different ideas about how the reforms should look like. You might not even believe that all of them are necessary. Regardless, this is a template worth discussing and evolving because without the first steps, we’re going nowhere.

Uniting Mainstream and Alternative Thinkers

So now we have some basic values, principles and core areas for reform. It’s definitely enough to create a solid agreement to represent to the public and ensure real change within the system, as well as resolve many of the peripheral issues that individuals focus on within the YVM .

However, there are many other serious concerns raised by the truth and freedom network. Some of them are just written off as ‘tin-foil-hat conspiracy’ by the mainstream media and therefore the masses, but is that fair? Only when they are authentically discussed on the public stage will we all know for sure of their accuracy.

So what follows are some examples of independent and honest examinations that are essential to occur on the public stage. These inquests need to be supported by the government, reported on by all media platforms without bias and driven by citizen-based investigations:

  • What is the extent of the global pedophile network, how many children are being harmed and how high does it go into the political and corporate elite?
  • To what extent has scientific research been perverted by corporate interests and how can we rapidly return to publicly funded, independent, transparent, peer-reviewed scientific research?
  • Are governments truly representing their Constitution, or are they ‘corporations’ which coerce citizens into unconsented contracts via birth certificates?
  • Is 5G technology dangerous for our health and can it be hacked for nefarious purposes?
  • Geoengineering is now being pushed by some universities and the UN to control our climate, however to what extent have chemicals been previously sprayed into our atmosphere and what are their effects on humans and our environment?
  • To what extent are new energy technologies being suppressed?
  • To what extent are big tech firms – like Google, Facebook and Twitter – behaving fraudulently and unethically, and how can we create publicly-owned communication infrastructure for safeguarding our innate right to free speech?
  • What is the difference between vaccinations and immunisations, what ingredients are actually in vaccinations, what are their real effects on the immune system of children, how many children have been disabled or killed because of vaccinations and what is the extent of the fraud and cover up?
  • Are pharmaceutical monopolies suppressing cures for serious disease?
  • What is the true sociological impact of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s)?
  • What is the true sociological impact of the war-on-drugs?
  • Why do specific natural substances, which have been scientifically proven to have strong therapeutic and developmental effects, continue to be outlawed?
  • What are the real agendas behind the push for a global government?
  • In what ways are the UN undermining our individual and national sovereignty?
  • Is mass migration across our world being done on purpose to weaken the nation state?
  • Unclassified documents prove that false flags are strategies commonly employed by governments, so which events in our recent history are currently classified false flags?
  • Were wars in the Middle East and elsewhere manufactured for money and power?

Now regardless of where you personally stand on any of these matters, I know you want them put to rest once and for all.

We all do.

And the only way to achieve that is to do exactly what I suggested above:

These inquests need to be supported by the government, reported on by all media platforms without bias and driven by citizen-based investigations.

The Media’s Role

It is the responsibility of the mainstream media to support an ongoing dialogue about all these issues and therefore engage the entire public in that discussion. Now of course they won’t do this without being forced to, which to reiterate, is why there has been a rapid decline in trust by the public.

This is all the evidence we need to undertake media reform immediately.

However, the independent media’s role is to build momentum on this discussion. Regardless if individual journalists or entire platforms have their own disagreements about some of what is written here, they still have a responsibility to contribute.

And to be straight-forward; I don’t see the difference between the MSM and them, if they don’t.

Final Thoughts

If you more or less agree with the propositions of this article, share it. Discuss it. Yet to be realistic, I don’t expect much to come from it.

Even though my last piece was so widely read, I didn’t hear from any journalist – mainstream or independent – who wanted to explore it further, nor did I see too many people within the YVM push for building a sensible agreement among their peers to represent to the public.

Instead, I saw infighting and individuals pushing their own narrow agendas.

Regardless, I know this commentary will be educational to many, which is the primary purpose of it. It will help many of you to push beyond the ideological dogma that has stagnated you, as well as ‘feel’ our deep need to take the first steps towards a better world. I sincerely hope that’s you.

Moreover, it’s also a documented account of where we are in this context, and how we could potentially proceed. It needs to be said, it needs to be recorded. I’m happy to take on that role.

And to reiterate, this post is pointing out that we can build an agreement that is palatable for a confused public, whilst still focusing on the areas that will create real systemic change. Or put another way, it illustrated that we can construct a treaty, a message, that educates those who need it and therefore expands the YVM with a view of actually achieving something, whilst not pushing people away with ideological rhetoric and wild conspiracy.

It also revealed that we can raise conspiratorial matters as reasonable and non-offensive questions.

Moreover, it showed that the “awake” community are deeply divided on many theoretical and practical levels. I emphasised that word because most people still don’t understand they are NOT awake, they are just ‘awake to’ various layers of reality, regardless if it’s metaphysical, scientific, systemic, ethical or some other layer.

Put simply, it’s important for us to realise this is a journey of awakening, not a destination. And we’re all at our own personal stage of that development.

So the more people who not just realise this, but act like it too, the more playful and productive discussions we can have as we continue to expand our experience of consciousness, on both individual and collective levels. And on a personal note, it’s inspiring to know that so many of you already own that responsibility.

After all, you’re the next stage of humanity’s evolution. All the love and power to you.

3 Reasons Why Introverts Are Undervalued in Today’s Society




introverts undervalued society

It’s undeniable that our society favors assertive extroverted personalities with strong communication skills and underestimates the quiet ones. If you are an introvert, you have probably learned it the hard way.

It could be that you felt unseen in the classroom as a child or teen. Or you may have watched your less competent co-workers get a promotion thanks to their social skills.

It feels unfair, but if you think about our society, it makes perfect sense. The consumerist mindset that has become our second nature inevitably affects the way we treat other people. It seems that everything, including our personal qualities and worth as human beings, is translated into some kind of market value.

In other words, to make other people see your worth in personal or professional life, you need to be able to ‘sell yourself’. Yes, this expression alone tells it all.

You need to know how to make a good first impression, say the right things, and be assertive. If you can’t do it, you are perceived as incapable and uninteresting – whether we are talking about a job interview or an informal social gathering.

But it’s not the only reason why introverts are undervalued in our society. Here are a few more:

1. They are less efficient in teamwork

Communication and teamwork skills are required for all kinds of jobs. It seems that without being able to work in a team, it’s impossible to do your job even if your duties don’t involve interaction with clients.

Introverts are much more efficient when they work on their own and are given a certain extent of independence. They thrive in quiet environments with few distractions and interactions. This is when a quiet person gets the chance to unleash their creative self and make good use of their analytical skills.

Most office jobs don’t give employees this opportunity. Office meetings, group projects, phone calls and all the other attributes of a 9-to-5 job make it almost impossible for an introvert to be productive.

2. They don’t like to be in the spotlight

Sometimes it feels like we are living in a society of attention seekers. Today, you are expected to go public about the most personal matters, such as your relationship and family life.

People share their most intimate thoughts and feelings on social media, post updates about the most trivial events, such as what they had for dinner, and upload countless selfies.

Introverts are among those who still value privacy. They are less likely to showcase their lives online or share the details of their personal affairs with the whole world.

At the same time, the quiet ones don’t like to be in the spotlight at social events. An introvert will never interrupt you. They will listen to you and talk only when they have something important to say. This tendency to avoid attention can be mistaken for insecurity and even a lack of intelligence.

3. They prefer to be real than to be ‘nice’

If you want to make a good impression on others, you are expected to be nice. But what does it mean to be ‘nice’ anyway?

In an introvert’s mind, it equals saying things you don’t mean. Quiet personalities will never bombard you with compliments or say meaningless social pleasantries just to win your fondness. But if an introvert said something nice to you, then be sure that they truly meant it.

Small talk is another component of social relationships most introverts struggle with. To them, it embodies utterly dull, uncomfortable, and pointless conversations they can perfectly do without. For this reason, introverts are often mistakenly believed to hate people.

The truth is that they don’t – they just crave stimulating, meaningful conversations and choose their social circle more carefully than extroverts.

In my book, The Power of Misfits: How to Find Your Place in a World You Don’t Fit In, I write about the reasons why so many introverts feel inadequate and alienated from other people in today’s society. It all goes down to social expectations this personality type has to deal with from a very early age.

But the good news is that every introvert can overcome the negative effects of these expectations and find the right path in this loud, extroverted world.

The Esoteric Meaning Behind Neo’s Interrogation Scene in The Matrix




esoteric meaning neo interrogation matrix

More than 20 years old now, The Matrix is recognized by fans across the world as being one of the most brilliant films in history, most notably for its deeper meaning and esoteric philosophy.


One scene that is particularly intriguing, considering the social climate of today, is Neo’s interrogation by the Agents of the Matrix.

Now, before we dig into the potential hidden meaning here, as I perceive it, and how Neo found himself in this uncomfortable position to begin with, let’s first establish some key points in relation to the overall story line that will help us to appreciate the implications behind this scene a little bit more.

What Does The Character Neo Represent in the Matrix?

Neo in ancient Greek (νέος) means new/young one. This is an important piece of the puzzle to help us understand what the directors of the film are trying to communicate to us. With that said, when we assess Neo’s character in the first film, we find that he is a solitary individual that keeps to himself and is struggling to find deeper meaning in this world by constantly searching the internet.

What Does The Character Morpheus Represent in the Matrix?

Morpheus in Greek mythology is a messenger of the gods. He appears to humans through dreams with the intention of delivering divine Knowledge and Truth. In the Greek mythos, he can appear in almost any form in people’s dreams, which could be because anyone, regardless of race, gender, or outward appearance, can be a messenger of enlightenment and Truth.

The First Matrix Film is About The Beginning of the Journey to Awakening

With the understanding of the deeper meaning behind what Neo and Morpheus’ characters represent in the film, we can now appreciate the intro scene of Neo sleeping (whilst searching for Morpheus) through a different lens of perception and awareness.

You see, Neo sleeping whilst searching online for Morpheus represents the early stages of the Truth seekers journey — “asleep” but still searching for deeper meaning in life — and hoping to find that meaning by seeking out a “messenger” of higher Knowledge and Truth.

Truth is Terrorism in the Empire of Lies

Through his incessant efforts, Neo begins to get closer and closer to finding the elusive Morpheus. This, however, also attracts the unwanted attention of the Agents in the Matrix, which represent the enforcers of the shadow government of this system. Their job is to ensure that no one exposes what the Matrix really is, and how it turns unsuspecting every day human beings into useful resources that it can use and exploit.


The Agents proceed to apprehend Neo and interrogate him, where they make it very clear that they’ve been spying on him and keeping meticulous records of his activities, both online and offline, for quite some time now. As we all know very well today, all around the world intelligence agencies are doing exactly that — tracking what we view online and keeping meticulous records on many of our movements.

The agents, however, do not see Neo as being a major threat to the Matrix system, as he is still in the early stages of his awakening and does not know enough to be a major threat. Instead, they offer him a deal where they will be willing to “wipe the slate clean” on his illegal activities online, if Neo will simply help them track down the man they call Morpheus, who they claim is “a known terrorist” that is “considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous man alive”.

This represents that the single greatest threat to this manipulative system — which is overwhelmingly ruled by deception and exploitation — is any messenger of higher Knowledge and Truth that can potentially awaken those who are still “asleep” to what the proverbial Matrix really is. In fact, one could argue this sort of power struggle has been going on for thousands of years, and is possibly why Socrates was accused of “corrupting the youth” by the ruling class more than 2,000 years ago and subsequently sentenced to death; or why Fred Hampton was assassinated by government authorities in 1969; or, in more recent history, why civilians that were peacefully protesting against Wall Street and the bankers for their part in destroying the world economy in 2008, were targeted by the FBI and even labelled as potential “domestic terrorists“.

Simply put, Truth is terrorism in the empire of lies.

Imaginary Rights

Neo, still being somewhat naïve and unbegun in his journey, rejects the Agent’s offer and demands he get a phone call because “I know my rights!”

To this, Agent Smith retorts, “tell me Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call if you’re unable to speak?”, which results in Neo’s mouth warping in the most eerie of ways.


This scene represents a lesson that all genuine Truth seekers eventually come to learn — this system is not concerned with human rights nor is it concerned with upholding authentic justice. Instead, it inculcates these beliefs and misperceptions into our minds from a very young age, because it serves to help legitimize its unnecessary existence in the eyes of the unsuspecting public and indoctrinate us as to why we think we need it. But in reality, our government guaranteed “rights” can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye.

In relation to current events, for example, many thousands of people worldwide have been arrested for violating curfew orders; In one Indian state, civilians were told they must take selfies every hour and send it to the authorities to prove that they are staying indoors; in South Africa, some have been fined for not wearing masks while driving their cars; In Boston in the United States, people have even been told that they will be fined if they walk “the wrong direction” down the street; Homeless people in France have reportedly been fined for not staying indoors; Some people have been arrested for attending funerals of loved ones because it violated lockdown orders; Others (including doctors and scientists) have had their right to freedom of speech censored online; In Australia, a pregnant woman was actually arrested in her home for facebook posts that encouraged protesting against the lockdown; According to the International Labor Organization, tens of millions are being pushed into unemployment; and travel all around the world has been severely restricted by these authorities who have taken it upon themselves to be the rulers of this planet by dictating what the rest of us can and cannot do. Whether you agree with these policies or not, these things cannot logically be called “rights” since they are so very easily violated and taken away from us.

We Must Start With the Imagination

There are many other examples that demonstrate how our government given “rights” are more of a comforting illusion than an actual reality, such as the CIA’s secretive Black Site torture programs, which have been done in cooperation with other intelligence agencies and authorities throughout the world. In these programs, people have been kidnapped — without any legal criminal charge or trial — and then taken to undisclosed secret locations where many of them are tortured for many months on end, in ways that are considered to be in violation of international law and basic human rights. The CIA, of course, simply claims they are suspected terrorists. In 2014, however, a Senate Intelligence Committee Report found that at least 26 of the people that were kidnapped and tortured were actually “wrongfully detained”.

Wake Up Neo — You Are the One

Fortunately, Neo manages to escape this unthinkable situation without any serious injury or harm. Soon after, he is contacted by Morpheus, where he is told that he was very lucky that the Agents underestimated his great potential and spared him, because if the Agents had known the great secret that Morpheus knows, then Neo would probably be dead.

Confused by the obvious strangeness of everything taking place, Neo asks Morpheus what the hell is going on, and what exactly is he talking about?? Without hesitation, Morpheus replies to him, “You are the one Neo — You see, you may have spent the last few years looking for me, but I have spent my entire life looking for you.”

This is perhaps the most important lesson the new Truth seeker must eventually come to learn — We are the ones we have been waiting for to change this corrupt world my friends; and we must stop looking for heroes and human leaders to absolve us of this very serious responsibility. Instead, we must all take on the role of Morpheus — which is to awaken as many Neo’s (new minds) as we possibly can, whilst also taking on the role that represents the journey of Neo, by challenging ourselves to become the best version of who we authentically are.

By doing this, we will help to awaken and unleash the unique creative forces of each individual’s problem solving imagination; and we will also find unity in our shared struggle against the injustices, and corruption, of this inhumane system which invariably exploits us all.

If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?

This Clever & Controversial Artwork Will Help You Think Deeper About Society




True artists are what I view as the antithesis of entertainers…

You see, an entertainer is concerned with popular opinion and giving the public what it wants to see. They intoxicate us with mindless amusements to help us escape reality and the everyday stresses of life. But artists, on the other hand, they give us what we need to see; by challenging us to to think deeper about the nature of reality, and the society in which we live, and they do this through the transcendent language of art.

With that said, I decided to collect some of the most thought provoking artwork from around the internet and offered my own little commentary on them…
