Nonviolent Revolt in the Twenty-First Century

“If you also wish to be part of the worldwide movement to end violence in all of its forms, you are welcome to sign the online pledge of ‘The People's Charter to Create a Nonviolent World’.”

Invasion of the Empire’s Pods

“The empire’s pods have subjugated our populace into believing in this Amerikan Exceptionalism that allows it to get away with phony pre-emptive wars and occupations.”

AP Smears Trump

“This AP article is extremely vague about what it is alleging, or who was behind the allegations, but it does provide several hints regarding whether its main sources were from the Trump campaign, or from the Clinton campaign, or both equally.”

The Numbers Don’t Lie—But Trump Does

“Watching the polls is a head-shaking confirmation that, I hope, reverses itself before November. There is far too much at stake.”

Gliding Into Dreamtime

“We must ask how much destructive inhumanity any social contract can withstand before erupting into rebellion.”

It’s time

“It is time to end this dance with death. Good people deserve good leaders. Good leaders would quickly negotiate and effect nuclear disarmament.”

Dancing with the Beast

“The Beast of Empire that Nixon alluded to in May of 1970 is still alive and more powerful than ever. It hides within the breast of a controlled government and media. To paraphrase : Its finest trick is to persuade you that it does not exist!”

The Psychology of Ideology and Religion

“Unfortunately, however, often enough the shared ideology or religion has a dysfunctional basis and the outcome is detrimental both individually and socially with the (violent) consequences sometimes reverberating throughout a national or even global society. This is why it is useful to understand the psychology of ideology and religion.”

Imagine

“Right now, sadly, we are racing to the bottom. Before we hit it, can we access our big human brains that know how to imagine, to dream, to create workable new paths to peace and prosperity? It is truly up to us.”

Whatcha Gonna Do About Me?

“What’s it going to take for folks to get off their duffs and onto the street corners? What I am suggesting is not revolution, rather evolution.”
