As I will be stating what is to you obvious, and therefore nothing new, I will nonetheless try to draw some perspective that will hopefully be entertaining.
I’m sure somewhere on Facebook someone will have the New Orleans Monsanto march, and I might have my short 5-min. speech. I didn’t want to scare them with the whole truth. That, I think, is a dinner best eaten alone.
It was rather meager crowd of 4 to 5-hundred that were there, and perhaps 100 that stayed to even listen to anyone talk. It was most likely due to the heat, and the total disorganization of anything that functions in the City of New Orleans.
I thought it was funny that several times the Park Police stealthily ordered all bicycles from the park, which of course everyone ignored, and they then later-on ignored the order to disburse, and that “order” too was ignored. I saw no uniforms, so I don’t know where these orders where coming from, and that was okay because no one was giving a shit about them anyway.
I hit them with some humor and inspiration, reminding them that although it seems that the same people, are showing-up at these events and that at times it seems all we’re doing is preaching to the choir, I said it doesn’t matter.
We could all be standing around in Purple Tutu’s with our hair on fire, and 90% of the people walking by us right now wouldn’t notice, and if they did 90% of them wouldn’t know a GMO from their elbow, or care!
So all we’re trying to do is get that small percentage to wake-up! And really that’s all we need. Because throughout history it’s ALWAYS been the small percentage of dedicated people that have changed the course of history, and we’ll have to save those sorry-ass dim-wits along the way.
Anyway, I said something very close to that. It seemed to go over well. And I think they believed it and it gave them hope.
Now. If I could only convince myself.
I’ll leave it them to figure out what parts I left out.
