We, the people, are on red, white and blue alert as the movies flirt with danger and heroes with square jaws and black capes destroy the bad guys and foil their escape.
“Real Housewives” tear each other apart and scream violence as their life on camera inevitably destroys their lives and belittles ours. Hours lost in mindless viewing of broadcasts interrupted with products we don’t need, owned by faceless old men who get richer by the second.
Yet still resilience and awareness gains ground as the people become more conscious of the staggering inequality of our culture. A new dawn indeed, brothers and sisters… it is in the air and in the actions of the brave new community.
