Strobe your masses
with the seen and unseen.

Feed them “must watch”
“must play” content.

Imply jobs
are supposed to suck.

Live for the weekend.

Cast excessive living
as ultimate meaning.

Declare it unpatriotic or uncool
to think otherwise.

Render freedom irrelevant.

and what about the violence
once they leave the womb?

The Chinese government has not moved closer to democracy. It has simply moved from left wing authoritarianism to right wing authoritarianism.

China’s enslave and pave policy must be reversed. Where is our government’s indignation? Where is our great freedom fighting President’s moral outrage? What is the difference between oppression in one place versus another? Or is this the way of globalization; forced consumerism for all.

Today I signed a pledge to Boycott Made in China products. I hope you join me.

Peace Is Free

You don’t have to get cleansed
cleared or confirmed

You don’t have to pay tribute

Peace is as free as your next breath
your next smile

God’s love is perfected in us.

Hopefully someday –
there will be a camera

on each square of this earth

from back country meadows
to the underside of every dock.

Hopefully someday –
a secure fence will surround
and protect our country

running south of Manhattan
and returning from the north.

Only then can i feel safe.

Only then should they bring back our liberties.

Belief in the The Apocalypse of John posits peace as unattainable
until the second coming of Christ:

until there is worldwide conflagration and a Christ based theocracy – peace is impossible.

How can you conduct sane foreign policy when you believe in such inevitabilities?

There was a time we had faith
in the future of humanity –

not technology.

About – my didacticism

November 19, 2007

I am often didactic. I know it can be a turn-off. I am sorry. I can’t help myself.

I believe our human problems are solvable. I believe there is wisdom at our disposal. Yet our consciousness is busy with busy work. We are all busy keeping once-useful now-archaic notions alive.

Ideas such as privilege or eternal damnation seem axiomatic to most. They legitimize division and dismissal. Yet my faith and observation  is that God shares everything and never gives up on anyone.

I sense urgency in the air and within myself. Each day brings more sad news. But the tragic has become entertainment rather than a call to action. The very things we ought to be alarmed about become our anesthesia.

People are innately philosophical. If they are given the opportunity (including the freedom and encouragement to think independently) they will find a way to get along.

I need to be a part of that process in several different ways.
