LOL this is exactly what I mean, What are we now? Nannies? This is RockNRoll https://www.hdwallpaper.nu/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/queen-2.jpg <<< that is when everyone wanted to be us and now it's all about what you are allowed to say, I mean WHAT? Who cares, let's make art, let's be awesome again instead of some exclusive club where there's a huge list of rules to follow otherwise you'll get kicked out or picked on. We have become uncool and for good reason, we have become th language police and it's boring

who's 'we' though

and what does this have to do with you, a random person on the internet who has built no relationship with any of us, telling us how to be and to join you in meme brigades that you've unilaterally decided is the right thing for all of us

One thing you need to understand is if you want to effect culture you need to know where it is. Memes are the #1 format for passing information quickly and spreading a message. It can be done with humour, Shock, Nostalgia, Synchronicity and Psychological triggers. It is literally what is killing our reputation, making us irrelevant. I want to show you how to use imagery to boost our reputation so that we don't look the fools we're always made out to be. Think Che Guevara looking like jesus with wings Standing and pepe kneeling as Che quotes, "Better to die standing than to live on your knees", To the religious "Right" would consider this blasphemous and get the pepe trolls and trump trolls would fight each other over it and this would start a frenzy. Che would get the praise. There are alliances there that shouldn't be and they're growing. Cults, Christians and "Sunken People". With what Kanye has done, it's going to smash us to bits. We need to do something

That's why we're doing so badly, Shame on you for assuming my gender. I'm not going to stoop to your level of ignorance and just go to people who actually want to improve their ability to effect REAL change.

what i'm telling you is that using the term "rocknrollers" makes you look like an out-of-touch granddad

case in point: the fact that you think queen are still cool

I'm probably an out of touch grandparent :)

Old school queer South Asian rockstars from Zanzibar are not uninspiring to me.

I am definitely not arguing that we should all be one though.

there's appreciating them on that level and then there's "kids these days just don't know what rock n roll is!!!"

I think showing some gratitude towards those who led the way would at least make us not look like brats. If we can wear Che Guevara shirts then why is Queen irrelevant? Trends start off as being unpopular but the the people wiling to risk it are the ones who set the trends. I can't believe how badly people are taking to my messages. I've done a lot of research and gotten behind enemy lines and I'm here to share some REAL advice in what's happened with culture and techniques. If it gets me marked down I don't really care but What I've seen of Liberal memes....... not very good at all. Very Cliche and predictable. The memes from the right are original with the ideas and we are using the leftovers from the right. They are setting the trends. <<<< this is the problem. Also we need to stop focusing on Trump, It's good for his PR when we give him sh1t. He eats it up. It puts the light on him and I swear the News is playing into his hand.

What I'm saying is The current liberal image is terrible and there's where it was awesome. Don't you get that the Right have gained traction by using nostalgia? We need to set trends instead of following them. Queen is more relevant now than it was then and if you don't get why, then there is no hope for you convincing anyone to join. You would have successfully isolated yourself from the general public and that's not how we gain traction. MEME gold if you know how to wield it.
