Of rebels and rebellion

Filed under: Sobriety — Teal @ 6:24 am

Dedicated to a certain ‘Rebel’.
Imagine a world – a world complete with perfection. A world without rules. Where everyone is immaculate and behave very nicely. No manipulation or insensitivity. Utopia of the present day era. Where the system is free of all loopholes. Where there is justice for all. Where everyone can do as they please and choose to make the decisions. Nice thought na? Okies now get back to reality! Wake up and smell the coffee!!!

Has anyone ever wondered why utopia is impossible? It is because in this universe there exists a hierarchy. A hierarchy of authority. Those who donot possess it, covet it more than anything, promising at every instant an optimum utilization of power.

Then there are the people who are actually powerful. Who have the power of choice. They can either choose to use it or abuse it. But to err is human right? God created us as a species of inadvertently self absorbed lot of creatures who only think of their feelings and their lives. Like The Beatles once sang – “I, Me. Mine”. So its clear. The system is in chaos. The architect/god is in a dilemma. When there is a shift towards one extreme, there comes another mighty power to defy this one, the power of rebellion.

So what does a rebellion mean?

A rebellion is – mutiny, revolution, uprising, etc. could bore ya with a bunch of words from the lexicon, but I choose not to.

So who starts a rebellion?

Duh. .. a rebellion is started by a rebel. Now let’s proceed to the next question.

So who is a rebel?

A rebel is a – avant-garde, a mutineer, a radical, a revolutionary.

Why does a rebel rise up from the majority?

Of course in some cases, a rebel is a martyr – some one who gives up all of his life and desires and dreams and dies for others. But in most cases, rebels are just your good old people who rise up against the system.

Why do they do that?

Tealspeak [influenced highly by matrix, though] : any system exists like an equation. When there are people who take crap and more crap from others, they are the ones who are hopelessly submissive to the present state of the system. There ultimate purpose is to balance the equation.

But the rebels on the other hand, bend and break every rule in the book. They are the anti-bodies of these afore mentioned species of low-lying scum mongers. The ultimate purpose of the rebel is to unbalance the equation. And screw those who say rebels don’t have a cause. Of course we do.

Where there is anarchy, there is mutiny. It may not be in a pronounced form, but its there.

Be a rebel, loose control.

  1. first one to comment !!!
    Great post first up…
    a good dedication to a “rebel”… but did u say “we” ??.. wow.. the transition to the first person makes things pretty obvious !!! 🙂 but jus being radical in action doesnt make a rebel.. rebellion towards action thro inaction is also possible.. think on this line too 🙂

  5. a rebel is needed in a system..it is like a negative feedback in a control system…

    >Who have the power of choice.
    everybody has a power to choose. Being submissive and not rebelling is also a choice one consciously makes if you think about it.

    liked the your style of writing in this post…

  13. well written, could have been written far better!

    well, selfishness….truly the cause of all trouble.

    And Whats with Ladies and Germs in the header?? We are extremes at this …

    But, isnt it impossible to rebel against a whole as system. Wouldnt it b more meaningful to rebel against a small facet in the system and correct it step by step?
    What rebellion are u talking about?

  15. a matrix junkie….no doubt…

    The system is defunct without chaos, it is dynamic because it constantly tries to restore order in its functioning. Rebels are people who try to create more chaos than the system can handle so that it collapses.

    Though i don’t completely agree with you, i liked ur style of writing…gud work
