Have you ever wondered why we have so many people showing up for protests? Here is what I think, we live in a country where 50% of the unemployed people are the youth, and the unemployed youth probably makes up 80% of the number of people who show up at major protests. Is it a coincidence or is it a plan that has been put in place by a certain system… at this point you may think I watch too many movies but give a moment let me explain to you what I am trying to say.
Here is how I see it, a certain system, for the sake of this example let’s call the system “Government”. So the government wants to remain in power for as long as it is possible and the people keep voting this government into power. The government has a plan to keep being voted into power. They use reverse psychology and fear of the unknown to make the vulnerable army do as they demand.
They are the same government that saved you from apartheid and so you owe it to them to give them what they want which is power and they give you money you didn’t work for while you keep breeding more and more so that they can stay in power. When we breed we are building a nation that may never know how to stand up for themselves but instead will remain dependent on the system to stay alive. So they reward you by giving you a little bit of cash while you breed an army for them. This army will keep voting for them to stay in power. They have instilled fear in the army that if we give the power to someone else, we may get back to apartheid or even lose our compensation for breeding them an army.
So many young people go to school but this system doesn’t provide enough employment for them so they spiral into depression and eventually sit around and do nothing. Remember they are educated enough to know what is wrong and right but they don’t have jobs. When they notice these things they voice them out and take part in these protests because they know that the way things are happening is not right. And before they know it they start breeding for a little compensation, because let’s face it better than nothing at all.
Because we fear the unknown and we are afraid of change we give in to them pressure and try and make a difference in the protest while they sit there and smile as their plan comes together. At this point you may ask yourself but what do they gain from the youth protesting, well it is simple they gain that face value power to say we are working here. In sociology we call it debunking, when you appear to be in order and working hard on face value but when we check where you are coming from it is just a mess. When there are protests the system gets excited because this is the time to show that they can solve problems and are a good system that cares about the people.
Maybe I give this system too much credit or maybe I watch too much movies but its something worth thinking about… @leratoberry
