Disturbance in the Force
September 23, 2015
A long, long, time ago, in a Galaxy called the Milky Way, there was a pale blue Dot; where a million wars were fought. The Dot had the Force, to keep the Ants, from their own demise.
It used Nature to provide the final balance, while many mapped faults. Past Empires and Slaves were limited by conditions, and the bonds between us.
And this Force allowed Love and Death, preventing loneliness, and giving time value, while we rearrange, on a rock in a void.
But a new Brand, of Sociopathic Sith, has started to incorporate citizens, into ATM’s.
Continually searching the Planet, for special deposits.
These NeuroAtypicals seek their Kryptonite, hoping to fly above the masses, breaking necks along the way.
The recent allegations against Volkswagen, which the company does not deny, paints a grim picture about how business views the environment, people, and profits.
This recent indictment is not the first time a company has intentionally harmed the environment, but this time it reminded me of Stuxnet, a highly sophisticated ingenious code.
And on those Evil heels came the smug face of the Turing CEO, who appeared rather Antisocial, from head to toe, as he justified raising the price 5000% for a medication (to fight Toxoplasmosis, in predominantly HIV infected individuals).
Oops, I meant to show this picture.
It is nice to know that the very instrument that has physically divided us, also has the power to unite us.
Social Media has used the Force of Public Persuasion, to correct the imbalance.
Jedi we must always be. These types of injustices, speak out against them, we must.
The Synergistic Force of our Informed Opinions, can triumph over these types of Corporate Siths.
