Gee… All I heard in the mainstream media was that stingy French people are raving in the street like little children over gas prices. Now things are slipping through that suggest something much, much bigger, something of truly HUGE import for every American and every human being alive!
Three brief videos capture it well. Here is the first clip, a street interview recorded in France:

Really captivating quote from this Frenchman in the street (slightly edited for clarity): “Don’t go for wishful thinking. Go for looking behind things, because it’s very clear that that’s what they (the oligarchs) want from us. They want us to go for wishful thinking so at the end of the line we are divided because we are not clear on what really is happening.”
So, is the people’s revolution which so many of us have been yearning for just around the corner? Is it already happening in France, with France as the model for the rest of the world? Can it happen without a people’s party or a well-structured people’s agenda? Is France spearheading the turning point? Let’s hear some more:

So, if the understanding and vision of the people is still insufficient to bring about the change we need, at least the momentum seems to have arrived, and the reaching out across traditional divides seems to be starting, at least in France for now, but perhaps unavoidably across the globe, including here in our beloved United States where we traditionally congratulate ourselves for our 18th century revolution which clearly didn’t go far enough, doing away with kings but not the robber barons. So, maybe we will live to see the final step sooner than we thought…
To conclude this little piece, I want to share one more short video. This one is from an American commenting exactly how I feel and think. I haven’t encountered him before, so I don’t know if I agree with him otherwise, but he really speaks for me in this brief video clip, and perhaps for you, too?
