Say please and thank you.

Chew with your mouth closed.

Don’t gain capital.

Be happy with trickle down.

Respect your elders.

Do as you are told.

Climb the ladder.

But not too high.

Have your cake.

And eat it too.

Smear it on your face.

Wear it like a smile.

Loosen that button.

Rise up.

Storm the battlements.

Eat the rich.

We are inching closer to a powder keg moment of the 21st century. Tensions are rising, society appears more and more polarised and the gap between the haves and the have-nots is widening. It is time for the tea to be tipped and the resources redistributed. But when humanity, at face value, is as vile as vile can be, how do we discern the right course of action? Do we feast on the remains, or attempt to rebuild new and better?

Either way, something has to change, so:

We are revolting.
