Knowing and acting, by Mazin Qumsiyeh

Donald Trump is still building a cabinet of rich people who aredisconnected from the reality of our world. The only silver lining is thatsuch a US administration could potentially push us the common people aroundthe world to organize better to save our world and not up to the elitistgovernments. Even if the US has always been run by the white elite racists(WERs to use the terminology of a recipient of these emails), people made adifference pushing (think how we got women’s right to vote, 40 hour workweek, ending the war on Vietnam, civil rights, social security etc). Surewe still have a corrupt system (e.g. the Federal Reserve run by bankersprinting money as they feel they need to serve their interests andtax-payers burdened with 17 trillion in debt caused by this system,elections determined by money and dominated by two corrupt parties/duopolyetc.). But more people are waking up and not believing the mainstream mediaowned by the same WERs ha allows a discourse of discussion only between“democrat” WERs and “republican” WERs and their mirror Zionists (those whoclaim they support “two-states” and those who don’t claim such support forthe mirage).Truth is available for those who seek it. As I explain to my studentsknowledge is out there and you simply have to develop skills of criticalreading (a questioning attitude). Always think: politicians lie so let meget text and information and data that is opposite of what they tell me.For example, if the siege on Gaza is about security, why are Gaza fishermennot allowed to fish further than 3 nautical miles? Is it true that thereare trillions of cubic meters of gas discovered off the Gaza shores? But wemust act if we believe we know what is right. Knowing and not acting isactually worse than not knowing. So every message I want to focus onputting out ways people could act.
