I must say out the gate, I do not believe our existing societal systems can flesh out a thriving world. They can only, for the most part, maintain the status quo and continue a society built on wage slavery and disconnection.
I believe a better world is possible. I believe human spirit is capable of something much greater, and this knowledge lies just beyond the conscious and subconscious programming we have come to accept about who we are and what’s possible for us.
This lens will be part of what guides the remainder of this essay.
Several months ago when I heard through the grapevine that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was thinking about a presidential run I felt a glimmer of excitement. Not necessarily because I believed he could win per se, but because of what I feel will transpire in the lead-up to the election.
It’s also important to recognize Marianne Williamson is also running as a challenger to Biden. She too has very similar views as RFK Jr. but may not resonate with as many folks just yet.
Hearing Kennedy was going to run gave me a similar feeling to when The Freedom Convoy began. In both instances, I was moved by something that felt like a deep evolutionary potential. Something that’s building within our collective consciousness at a quickening rate. Something that says we are on the cusp, and in the process, of major change should we choose to embrace it.
Kennedy also acknowledges that millions of people have the right intuition that our societal systems don’t work in their favour. They feel our systems have been captured by corporations and elite interests, and this reality affects every level of our lives. As this becomes apparent to more people, solutions become a topic of discussion.

But it’s hard to consider solutions without a well-defined problem. I believe to truly look at solutions, we must consider the consciousness and worldview that drives the systems around us today. I don’t believe our systems are evil driven by evil people, I believe they are systems designed by mindset and spirit disconnected from oneness and tuned into a story of separation.
Centuries of wounds, scars and unresolved conflict have shaped humans who have lost touch with themselves and nature, and thus created systems that feed deeper into a loss of touch with ourselves and nature. It’s here where we must begin if we wish to create a better world.
Kennedy’s bid for president, in my view, contains an evolutionary pressure that will further expose this worldview and the nature of the systems it created.
Further, many important topics are going to be incredibly hard for mainstream narrative keepers to avoid because Kennedy is running for the top job in the US.
Thus, I believe we have a moment ripe for collective evolution.
Imagine how hard it’s going to be for the following topics to be avoided on a large scale during his run:
Corporate capture of institutions & regulators
The lack of democracy in the US
The corruption of the DNC and GOP
Mainstream media censorship & narrative control
The fact that millions of people rightly have no trust in institutions
A holistic picture of environmental degradation
Interestingly, mainstream media sees his run as a chance for Kennedy to have his voice heard on these issues as well, only they are coming from a position that avoids the corrupt nature of the system it protects, and believes he’s simply misinformed. No discussion necessary.
Media Coverage As A Hint of What’s To Come
Since he announced his bid for president, mainstream media has gone all out framing Kennedy in any negative light they can think of. Calling him an anti-vaxxer, misinformation superspreader, claiming most of his family thinks he’s nuts, and claiming his bid for the presidency is nothing more than activism.
“Nothing to see here, just another misinformation peddler,” they say.
For the most part, mainstream media still doesn’t understand the nature of Kennedy’s message nor the facts behind it, and instead repeats corporate rhetoric designed to blind themselves and the eyes of citizens. The MSM has, up until this point, refused to engage ‘the other side,’ but that’s all about to change.
Before I go on, note that Kennedy, like any other person, is not perfect. I imagine that he has numerous skeletons in his closet. If you’re waiting for someone perfect to come along a challenge the status quo effectively, good luck. It’s important to look to the bigger picture, and welcome change one stride at a time, avoiding the self-sabotage that comes with waiting for that ‘perfect person.’
Let’s take a quick look at this coverage from a CBS affiliate talking about RFK Jr.’s run early on.
Kennedy certainly does have some views that don’t align with ‘the Democratic party’ as stated by Paula Ebben and Jon Keller. Of course, Kennedy’s whole position is that the Democratic party has become captured by the corporatocracy, a fact these out-of-touch pundits aren’t attuned to because they’ve avoided engaging the other side and truly listening.
As per usual here, we see lazy ridicule without facts to back it - just statements like “it has been debunked.” This form of ‘journalism’ won’t get past too many people these days. Thus, if this is a taste of what’s to come, imagine the impact this will have on more and more people realizing the true nature of mainstream media, and how much more trust will be lost.
Some call the loss of trust in institutions a bad direction, I call it a necessary chaos.
