dost protest much?

this country was built on rebellion, yet currently we are the biggest nation of apathetic do-nothings. when was the last you, or i, or anyone for that matter, got off our soap-box and actually went out and did something about what we preach? i know i’m a perpetrator of speaking one thing and not doing anything about it. someone wants to ban books? where’s the outrage?? where’re the protests?? where are the marches?? on some messageboards on the internet, that’s where. strongly worded letters will only get you so far.
i took a global comm class (and i’ve probably said this before), and the prof told us that it takes 80% of a nation to be oppressed before an uprising actually makes a difference. 80%!! but what’s really disturbing is that 100% of americans’ freedoms and rights are being oppressed, yet we still do nothing about it. why?
we’ve become a bunch of apathetic people with the mindset that if it doesn’t affect us directly, then we shouldn’t make a fuss. recently there was a court ruling that evidence t federal ID, with a camera watching our every move, reading the daily newspaper with the official government seal, when it hits us. how did we get this far?
oh yeah, cuz i didn’t care.
so what can you do? what can i do? i don’t know.
keep your nose clean.
