"In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act." -George Orwell

Oldspeak: Wow, it’s  a sad state of affairs in our society when simply choosing to talk to someone and learn something about them is a revolutionary act. Watch this thought provoking, powerful, revealing, sobering, inspiring video by Luke Rudkowski on happiness, freedom, government, humanity, and life in the words of train passengers. It really is amazing to see what random people think. Most don’t trust the government has their best interest at heart, just as many are motivated by fear as by love. As a New Yorker, who’s ridden the train his whole life, it never occurred to me why it is that people don’t talk to each other, they don’t make eye contact, they’re loathe to interact with each other. People look at you as if you’re insane if you do any of these things. I’ve been socialized to  just accept it as the way it is. Why? Could it be to prevent us from realizing how alike we are, how connected, how powerful we can be to affect universally beneficial change? I’ve recently started looking at people, smiling at people, acknowledging people’s presence, it’s striking to  observe how few people do this. You should try it as well, you make feel better and make someone else feel better as well. Within us is the change we seek. ”
