This man perfectly encapsulates the idea behind the Purple Pill. Our political enemies are actually just our fellow citizens who are rightfully dissatisfied with the way our country is being run. Whether you lean red or blue, most people today want the government to change the status quo.
The media and monied interests have segregated the majority of our citizens from the power centers of our country and now there is widespread disillusionment as a result. The sources that provide us with information have been peddling talking points to intentionally divide us.
Whether their motivations were based on malice or profit, they have planted terribly destructive seeds in our society. The American people are at each other’s throats. This is an unproductive mentality for average people to hold. Like the man in this video says, we have more in common than the people in power would like us to believe. When we are divided, we are conquered as the old saying goes.
This nation was supposed to have a government “by the people” and “for the people” and today, it is clear that we have not lived up to that ideal. But it is not too late to unite and to take back control of our own lives. We can leave our emotional agendas at home and come together to regain democratic control over our country if we join hands to force the government to change the status quo.
