We spend our lives turning our silence into power with yoga and mindfulness, when maybe the problems we have with the world are because it’s unfair.

I wonder what would happen if the funniest, most persuasive people in the country stopped acting like it doesn’t matter who we work for or what we say. Or that what they do as comedians matters so much. Maybe not as many people would die, maybe some of the kids wouldn’t suffer as much, and maybe some truly important ideas would be argued for convincingly. My point is we shouldn’t have to play along, I was mad, still am, and you should be too.
