Ideas are Bulletproof !

Today we celebrate Ideas and they are Bulletproof !

'May Day' is synonymous with the historic achievements of the labour movement. This tradition of voicing change was first sparked in Australia in 1856, with the right to a "workers holiday".

154 years later, that voice for human equality has gotten that much stronger towards the injustices that continue to hinder the progress of humanity as a whole. We point fingers at religion for bloodshed but the true criminal is Usury in Capitalism, the average person will always be in the red with the banks. This is our world ! One which is controlled by the unelected and therefore undeniably undemocratic, the ruling banking elite. Its interesting that between 200 or 300 families control 90% of the worlds wealth.

The thought of change is always a mind expanding experience, much like a parachute in full blown use. Every human has his/her own way of expressing change whether its the photographer shooting a protestor wearing a Guy Fawkes mask or the protester herself whose at the rally.

"For one to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others"

...and some of us choose to express ourselves through music.

So when it came down to ideas for todays blog post, I couldn't but help remember the feeling that Celt Islam gives me from his music while looking at pictures of May Day. So I played his album Dervish and the track "uprising" was the perfect feeling for the above photograph. Uprising feels like the national anthem for a revolution !
