Zeitgeist (Spirit of time)

Posted by imdad on October 30, 2007

Following is a Dialog from an awesome documentary film by the above name —

      I don’t have to tell u things are bad .. everybody knows things are bad … The dollar buys the nickel’s worth .. banks are going bust .. shopkeepers keep a gun under the wardrobe .. punks are running wild in the street .. there’s nobody any where seems to know what to do … and there is no end to it …

We know the air is unfit to breath and our food is unfit to eat .. we sit watching our TVs .. while some local news caster tells us that today we had 15 homicides, 63 violent crimes as if thats the way its supposed to be .. we know things are bad, worse than bad …

They are crazy .. its like everything every where is going crazy .. so we don’t go out any more .. we sit in the house and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller .. and all we say is — “Please, atleast live us alone in our living rooms … let me have my toaster and my TV, my steel-belt and radios and i wont say any thing .. just leave us ALONE ..”

Well I’m NOT going to leave u alone … i want u to get MAD!!!! …..

I don’t want u to protest, i don’t want u to write, i don’t want u to write to your congress-men because i wouldn’t know what to tell u to write .. i don’t know what to do about the depression and inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street .. all I know is that first u’ve got to get MAD

U’ve got to say — I’m a Human Being, GOD DAMMIT, my life has VALUE!!!!
