The talking invader on the left represents the people. The silent invader on the right represents the government.
The way one can avoid living in fear is by recognizing when change is of the utmost importance and it is necessary to challenge the status quo.
Questions have recently arisen about whether whistle-blowers are heroes with conviction or just downright traitors who jeopardize national security. Our citizenry expect the leaders of our government be honest, trustworthy and firm upholders of the Constitution. As citizens, we should speak out and be concerned about issues of privacy, surveillance, spying, freedom, human injustice and other social problems throughout the entire world.
What will happen if an unexpected environmental catastrophic event completely knocks out electricity, communication, food supplies and clean water? Within a few days, you will be completely on your own. Will the government be there to meet your needs? Who can you really trust?
Question control. Be aware. Speak up. Be involved. Create change.
