You can continue to be a slave to the financial system, and watch the continual wars, depressions and continual injustices across the globe, while placating yourself with vain entertainment and materialistic garbage.
You can focus your energy on true, meaningful, lasting, holistic change, which actually has the realistic ability to support and free all humans with NOONE left behind.
But, in the end, the most relevant change mut occurr first inside of YOU.
The real revolution is the revolution of conciousness, and each one of us first needs to eliminate the divisionary, materialistic noises we have been conditioned to think is true.
