so iv been editing and printing lately but not realyl taking photos school and work have completely taken over my life i havn't even gotten to ride yet. but i just wrote this essay and im pretty syked on the conclusion of it. the essay is about consumerism in the 1960's and today. so let me know what you think.
With all of these pressing issues in the 1960’s it is amazing how far we have come, with people such as the housewives and the black panthers pushing through the crowd for us. It just goes to prove no one is going to sit and revolutionize the world for you, you have to find the problem, isolate it and do whatever is necessary to fix it. Whether that be, stepping out of the suburbs, or bombing police stations. The world needed to change in the 1960’s and the world needs to change today. In the 1960’s the world was controlled by the government and the white men who ran it, and supported it. Today the world is controlled by consumerism and the ever-growing corporation. The corporations of today run the government. They control what you eat, what you watch, what you hear, and what you feel. The people who are making your depression medications are the same people who produce your vegetables. And the people who package your potato chips decide whether or not we have a national health care system. The world is corrupted by corporations and government, and the only way to fix it is through revolution, and this revolution will be different than any other. This one means more work, more sweat, more blood, and probably more violence. We’re going to have to start growing our own food, creating our own entertainment, and finding ways to make ourselves happy without pills or drinks, and if we succeed this revolution will benefit everyone in the world. You will be forced to step out of your comfort zone just like the housewives of the 1960’s, and do things for yourself for once in your life. Not because your boss asked you to, not because the TV told you to, and not because the medication your taking made you think you had to. It’s going to happen because you want it, and because you want your life back.
