I'm a seventeen year old girl.
I want to change the world.
Recently, I saw a movie that changed
my perspective on everything.
This movie is called
ZEITGEIST.
Watch it if you're seeking
a new perspective.
The following is a speech from the movie.

I dont have to tell you things are bad, everyone knows things are bad. The dollars buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers
keep a gun under the counter, punks are running wild in the street, there's no one anywhere who knows what to do, and there's no end to it. We
know the air is unfit the breathe and our food is unfit to eat. We sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today, we
had 15 homocides and 63 violent crimes as if that's the way it's supposed to be... We know things are bad, worse than bad, they're crazy,
it's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore, we sit in the house and slowly the world we're living in is
getting smaller and all we say is "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms, let me have my toaster and my TV, and my steel
belted radios, and I won't say anything, just leave us alone."

Well, I'm not going to leave you alone. I want you to get MAD. I don't want you to protest, I don't want you to raid, I don't want you to write
to your congressmen, because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and
the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that FIRST, you've got to get mad. You gotta say, "I'm a human being Goddamit, my
life has VALUE."
