We are being bullied…
If you’ve ever been bullied, you know how it feels.
That sense of helplessness and no choice BUT to comply.
It’s that same feeling you get every time you put fuel in.
You know how much of that money goes to taxes. You know how much of it is wasted or stolen.
But, you have no choice BUT to comply.
It cuts you. Deeply. To know that there was nothing you could do.
Now there is.
To defeat a bully – take away their power.
This has been taught and talked about endlessely. With the proliferation of bullying throughout the layers of our society and the world at large, many people have offered advice on dealing with bullies.
They all agree that violence is NOT the solution.
Bullies rely on fear to gain compliance and it is the source of their power.
‘Victims’ ( and I use that word only for the purpose of this article) feel either that they do not have the strength or will to fight back, or they don’t know what to do, so they do nothing.
However, in many personal stories we have ALL seen where people find the courage to stand up and overcome their bullies.
They had finally had enough and were now willing to stand and fight, regardless of the consequences plus- they had a plan.
This is where we are in South Africa.
We have been ‘fuel bullied’ with the fear of not being able to run our lives without fuel.
We have finally had enough.
We have a plan and we are making it.
We will create fear in them by striking at what they are afraid to lose.
We will take away their power over us.
Because nobody likes a bully.
