Before they crop us out of the picture
Suggesting we all should get smart and more aware about our surroundings and economy around us, before it’s too late, and the government has full control of the metaphoric picture.
He said “sip” the elixir. If the elixir is symbolizing the Hiiipower movement then he is simply telling people to give them a chance or just a “sip”. You dont have to chug it, just try it. As for this line he is saying that if you dont hurry up and try, (sip), this new way of thinking and living, then the Government will outlast the movement. The winners write the history books so if the Government wins then they will never tell future generations about Hiiipower and eventually it will all be gone.
