legal tender

the poet ponders the life that once flowed through the wood of a cabinet door, while the businessman signs multi-million dollar deals on a board room table made from an 800 year old tree.

if such a thing were even possible
some kind of good government
somebody's gotta prove it...
would have to move the ideology
from one of controlling people
to one that empowers us instead
which would necessarily mean
we would outgrow the need
for government, like thoreau said.

a new day, anarchist rantings, chapter 45

progress means exploiting the land for profit. it is a system that cannot sustain itself any longer. people gonna have to start thinking for themselves instead of doing what they told. freedom is the only logical solution to all of the problems that control creates.

but they say freedom doesn't count as a solution, because you aren't telling people what to do!!!


helping people means to empower them to decide what is best for themselves. it's not about raising them up to your level, because thinking that you are above them is the problem, that kind of thinking won't solve anything.


emotional triggers serve to turn off people's ability to think clearly. the manipulation of feel good brain chemicals works almost as good as fear, in that respect. repeated abuses makes addiction. and then there's all that denial involved. when we know better, we do better.

when you are expected to get angry and fight, turning the other cheek becomes an act of defiance. they only know how to provoke and react to violence.

but that's a different poem...
sung to the same tune

happy equinox, y'all

i disagree with the notion that the internet is destroying society. i think that as we learn to talk to people outside our own groups, the groupthink loses hold, and we must depend more on an internal moral compass. i think that this will create a less obedient, but more compassionate society. and isn't that what the world needs right about now, people who judge right and wrong not on what the group says, but on what their hearts say is right?

as we gain access to more and more information, we will become empowered and start making decisions for ourselves that previously we had left up to the experts. experts who, we now know, were paid to represent corporate interests, rather than our own best interests.

how can that be a bad thing?

informed consent

the arguments put forth
by those who defend corporate interests
all start to sound like so much bullshit
if anyone bothers to look into it.

but fear
grips their hearts
and they don't want to see,
so they don't even look.
they could if they wanted.
