Another Revolution, 13 Years, 10 Days Later

Suddenly someone cried out, “To the Bastille!”…That afternoon Louis XVI returned to Versailles from a day’s hunting and entered the following note into his diary, “July 14: nothing.” Then the Duc de la Rochefoucauld-Liancourt, arriving from Paris, told him of the successful attack on the Bastille. “Why,” exclaimed the king, “This is a revolt!” “No, Sire,” said the Duc, “It is a revolution.”

  1. One man’s revolt is another man’s revolution.
    One man’s trash is another man’s son.
    To the haves, the have-nots are disposable trash. And trash is meant to be taken out once it serves its usefulness.
    To the have-nots, their sons and daughters, wives and husbands, family is all they have. Their whole world.
    In a world ruled by the haves, the have-nots have only one foundation which upholds their complacency to serve: the yield of labor, which they will utilize on their family’s behalf.
    The haves keep taking out the trash. The have-nots keep seeing something.
    What they are seeing is a circle, or to be exact; a cycle. They are seeing those around them lose everything.
    Eventually too much trash is taken out. The have-nots have lost their sons to war, their daughters to fornication, their siblings to blind consumerism and resulting poverty, their parents to inadequate healthcare.
    They have lost their whole world. They have learned what it means to lose everything.
    With nothing to lose and everything to gain, the have-nots become the haves.
    How do they do that? By turning the haves into the have-nots.
    Dont tread on us motherfuckers. Enough beestings can slay a fat cat.
