so people having been coming into my ask recently telling me to stop comparing ferguson/other human rights struggles to les mis and the hunger games but those books were LITERALLY about standing up to corrupt governments. the reason i made that post to les mis lyrics was to highlight the fact that a book/musical about a FUCKING REVOLUTION fit so well. shouldn’t that scare the shit out of all of us? that everyone around the world in every country no matter what ethnicity is calling for reform?
((ps. some literally scrawled ‘If We Burn You Burn With Us’ across something in Ferguson so yeah it is important to show the effects literature is having.
Also comparing real life events to movies/literature often helps people relate more to desperate situations MEANING THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO HELP.))
