The full quote has even more truth in it -
but I thought it would set people off and distract from the main point here

"By our readiness to allow arms to be purchased at will and fired at whim, we have created an atmosphere in which violence and hatred have become popular pastimes." Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We can all watch and worship barbaric u.s. football
While sipping on carcinogenic poisons to make us ill
We can salute the flag and watch propaganda news
We can bow down to the murderous military machine
We can elect and follow corrupt and incompetent leaders
We can play violent video games and think it's no big deal
We can live on stolen land with no remorse or self-awareness
We can call people illegal when we don't want to have compassion
We can belittle others and hate them because it boosts the human ego
etc, etc, etc,................ or we can pause, and eat some humble pie
