These signs are found and seen everywhere but only few people stop and question their meaning. This is because day after day we are barraged with distractions through multiple sources. We are the children of a system that wants to keep their citizens asleep. In ancient Rome, Caesar came up with the gladiator games in the Coliseum to distract the citizens from the poverty and political issues. In today society we have TV, radio, newspapers, magazines and the internet doing the same job the Coliseum games did for Caesar. We boast of freedom when we are kept under surveillance 24/7. We choose leaders although they are just a front to cover the real rulers. We are brought up in a educative system that makes us drones that work for a society that doesn't have its citizens as their main priority. We are trying to raise scholars but we barrage them with debt to force them to work and put aside their individual dreams. Our leaders use words like THEM to psychologically separate us from people that have more similarities with us than what we have with our filthy rich leaders. We are victims of privately owned media that uses scare tactics to make us give our freedom in exchange for false security. We are the pawns of this chess game we call society. We the working class, the students, the moms, the dads and even the grandparents are the expendable ones. But everything will be ok because Drake has a new song!
