I've come across quite a few of these "pitchfork" blog posts and articles over the past two-plus years, all gleefully promising a day of reckoning during which the masses will finally awaken from their stupor and rise up against the powers-that-should-not-be.
I could be wrong, but I see nothing in my daily life or the greater world that points to any sort of pitchfork uprising. Complacency, compliance, and cowardice together with bountiful heaps of apathy, indifference, and denial are pretty much all I see.
A day of reckoning -- replete with pitchforks -- may very well come . . . one day . . . but I personally do not believe it will. Or -- more precisely -- if it ever arises, it will not be an organic rebellion against the Establishment. Instead, it will likely be something the Establishment foments to use for its own purposes.
And what does it matter in the end? Nothing short of spiritual awakening will suffice. And that will not happen at the level of the masses but at the level of the individual. One person at a time.
