John Boyega’s followers give their take on the system.
One of his followers called upon people to help her out with the problem that she was facing personally. She called out the government for basic needs such as housing and asked for people to help her out as she felt alone in this fight.
Hi John, I do not want to return to how things were, housing is bad, health care is bad, education is bad… But how does one move forward? 🤕 How does one fight this government, how does one provoke change, I’m just one woman, I feel helpless.
Another follower of John Boyega’s came with a very interesting and thought-provoking question, “Who are we fighting when we say we’re fighting the ‘old system’?”. This is something that every person asks themselves when they need to see change and successfully execute their ideas.
I mean John: If all the multibillion-dollar corporations (especially ones who treated you in a very racist way when you worked for them) and every government agree with the upper end of your arguments…..are you fighting the old system? And if so who are you fighting?
