We Have A Dream #spartacusreport

Sorry, I can't get on board with this video, it comes over as appropriating PoC civil rights struggles and I don't think that's a good idea.

I've come across a fatal flaw. Which basically leaves sue and kaliah and all their efforts limp and faltering.

When you say: "we recognize the need for reform." You are actually saying "yes - we believe this should all go ahead." or: "yes - we think some are more deserving than others."

You are actually part of the dysfunction instead of trying to eradicate injustice and fascism - it sort of pats it on the head and says....yeh....go for it.

So I wonder; Good intentions are one thing but what if a lack of conviction and passionate full on defiance - enables this injustice towards the sick and disabled. Turning up with a pile of notes isn't the same as saying: "WE ARE NOT GOING TO BLOODY STAND FOR THIS>" "PEOPLE ARE DYING"!!!

I'm sorry if I upset the sensibilities of either of the commenters I follow, but did we just listen to the same statement?

"We have a dream" is NOT exclusive to the civil rights movement...in any event I doubt if any responsible part of that movement would ever be as exclusive as Dawn suggests...

As regards telemetry...are we really listening to the same broadcast, or are you integrating material from elsewhere? If the latter, say so, and I'm sure someone a good deal more mature and experienced than you are will explain why a reasoned response is so necessary at the current time...
