A BlankTV Premiere Presentation:
The Insurgence - "We Can't Be Stopped"
The American Oligarchy: A system in which power resides only within a small ultra-wealthy political class. As the wealth of a nation becomes increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few, laws are re-written allowing that wealth to be converted into political influence.
Record amounts of money flowing into the political system drown out the voices of all but a few. The rules are being re-written, and they are not in your favor. Eighty percent of the country is left to fight over less than half of the wealth. Is the oligarchy really working that much harder than you? They may have their shackles around our politicians, but the only thing that shackles the rest of us is complacency. We have been forgotten, thrown away and they are betting you will do nothing. We have the numbers. Together, we can’t be stopped!
Punk. Thrash. Hardcore. Take a look into the world of punk on the streets and venues of Seattle. One band in particular, The Insurgence, formed in 2006, never lets their audience forget that they do have a message. Influenced by "world issues" not just governmental politics, a cliché and overused subject in the world of punk philosophies, The Insurgence take being pissed off about unjust bullshit in the world and turn it into a musical outlet where they can possibly educate and motivate others.
It’s about "the big guy stepping on the little guy" which you quickly discover listening to their songs about such topics as corporate greed, the American oligarchy, religious exploitation and the military industrial complex.
