we are all holding the spear

I can get carried away sometimes with a good rant. I like to shake my fist at 'the System', 'the Man', and so on. We all do. But sometimes we actually contribute to the very entity that's causing us grief. We vote for the government that's ticking us off, or worse, maybe we don't vote at all. We work for companies that don't recycle, or exploit the less fortunate. We put our money in mutual funds that are made up of corporations that pillage Mother Nature (see how I can get carried away?). Sometimes we contribute, directly or indirectly, to the bad guys, to the agressor holding the spear. I guess I'm saying that we need to take a hard look at how we contribute (or neglect to), to not be so quick to judge. 'The System' and 'the Man' are made up of individual people. We ARE the System, we are holding the spear. This is a lesson/reminder for me.
