Why No Roar??

The problem's too big
the perpetrators unknown
you can't beat the system
all on your own.
So it's easy to withdraw
find your own little cage
turn a blind eye to the suffering
stifle your rage,
but, the greed goes on
the poverty's still there,
you can't just leave it
for your children to bear.
Others feel as you do,
eager to put things right
but locked in isolation
it's a hopeless fight,
so don't sit in silence
behind a closed door,
your voice can help raise
a whisper to a roar.

        Things are tough, very tough for countless millions of people on this earth, even in the "rich developed" countries millions live below the poverty line, surrounded by unimaginable wealth. Practically everybody knows the system is unfair, corrupt and exploitative, yet in these "rich developed" countries, only thousands resit and protest, Why? What is it that makes millions accept their state of poverty, their lack of control over their own lives?  Is it fear, or is it a feeling of hopelessness that you can't win against the system. Our babbling brook of bullshit, the mainstream media, tries hard to portray that illusion, that challenging the status-quo is only done by hooligans and terrorists, and is always forcibly put down by a strong state apparatus, as it defends us against these hooligans and terrorists. How does the majority of people get to see through this illusion, this weaving of smoke and mirrors, and realise that the real power lies with them, they can take control of their own lives, and can shape society to a fairer and more just system that sees to the needs of all our people. 
     ------Unlike a more abstract analysis of "the Spell," which could be thought through in terms like those found in The Ego and Its Own, by Max Stirner; this Spell was thought of in terms of more specific context, not just another spook attempting to win an individual's allegiance. The Spell wasn't a matter of believing in another's Cause, it was a matter of believing that we are too weak to pursue our own cause(s). It was a belief that was reinforced throughout all of the institutions we are expected to embrace: schools, churches, every branch of government, work, and especially through mainstream media. It wasn't a moral injunction that one shouldn't fight against these things, it was a repetitive practical demonstration that one can't revolt to any acceptable consequence.------
