PLEASE STAY SAFE GUYS (x)
erm you’ve seen the film right??? its not about random acts of violence. its about corruption, how the rich (1%ers) & powerful (government) use the purge as a way of thinning the population ie leaglised genocide, you are sold/told that this one night of horror is the cathartic for the population & will lead to a better society, but this is just another form of control. the rebel group in the film that are fighting back against the oppressors is just using the same methods that have been inflicted on them, using capitalism to fight capitalism, speed it up so that it destroys itself, Emmet form the Lego Movie uses the same logic to fight back and destroy the kragle.
i am not in anyway condoning violence. just pointing out that when the powers that be also control how events are seen & what the media can say, fighting back or even simply speaking out can make you a ‘terrorist’.
in a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act. orwell
