Immunity Passports: Does Social Solidarity Only Count When It Gets Us Back to the Pub?

If we really want a social consensus, if we really want the common good, if we really want everyone to trust in the collective, then we must decide to spurn the narrow, selfish, unaccountable elite that rules over us. We must decide, once and for all, to value the collective, the commons, the public good – not worship at the altar of profit and greed.

We Are the Terrorists

The US and its allies have been helping Saudi Arabia deliberately kill children and other civilians on mass scale in order to achieve a political goal. Which would of course be a perfect example of any standard definition of terrorism.

This Isn’t Feminism, It’s Imperialism In Pumps

We should not be cheering for women rising to the top of a psychopathic war machine. We should be dismantling that war machine and rolling back all the conditions which led to it. True feminism, which is interested in guiding the world toward balance and heath in a way that benefits women and their children, would make this a priority.

Chris Hedges: American Requiem

Well, it’s over. Not the election. The capitalist democracy. However biased it was towards the interests of the rich and however hostile it was to the poor and minorities, the capitalist democracy at least offered the possibility of incremental and piecemeal reform. Now it is a corpse.

Fractal Agent Smiths

The struggle of humankind is a struggle to become more conscious. Like a fractal, you see this same struggle to expand consciousness happening on every level of humanity no matter how far out or how far in you zoom the camera. But within every possible recursion of the fractal, you’ve got forces opposing that expansion of consciousness.

I Reckon We Can Win This Thing

All in all, I reckon we can win this thing. Not the anti-policing protests necessarily; I don’t quite know what will happen with those in the long run. I mean the whole thing. Winning it all. Actually getting out from underneath the elite and beginning to function as a healthy organism on this planet.

From Emergency to Emergence

The COVID-19 crisis has imposed immense hardship on billions of people. But that hardship is dwarfed by what lies ahead if we continue on our current path. Now we must step up to prevent the collapse of the regenerative systems by which Earth creates and maintains the conditions we need to exist.

Life May Itself Be A Koan

The koan is a dilemma, a mystery which the rational mind cannot solve. The key to the resolution of a koan is a shift in the being of the student which allows for a new understanding of the question itself.

Dress Rehearsal for the Apocalypse

As we look out on silent, empty, streets, watching while statistics of the sick and the dead skyrocket out of control, and the sickening chill of fear clutches at our hearts for our loved ones whom we are powerless to protect, the question that hangs in the air is, ‘Why?’

Covid-19: The Rich, the Poor, the “Other”

The impact and consequences of the pandemic (for health and the economy) are much worse for the poorest sections of society and could devastate developing nations. It is making social inequality even more acute and while many communities are uniting, where a coordinated political response is called for, divisions predominate.

Isaiah’s Warning to Change

So many Christians insinuated that “God is angry with the way we are living.” I would disagree. If you want to simplify and personify the beautiful, loving force that connects all and everything into a father figure; then I would suggest he is not angry – he is bitterly disappointed.

Thinking of Ducks

Ducks. As a child I used to love visiting duckponds. These memories linger, visions of a lost childhood when I thought the world was a place of beauty and wonder. Oblivious to the barbarity of my species, I had no clue what was really in store for the majority of ducks, and the world became a blacker and more sinister place for my knowing.

The Disaster of Utopian Engineering

The problem is that our utopian engineers in their giddy dismantling of an economic and democratic system, as well as their draining of state resources in the wars they prosecute overseas, have dynamited the tools that could save us. They have left us no option but to revolt and remove them from power.

So The US Is Invading Iraq Again

Though It won’t be as exciting as last time. If the initial invasion of Iraq was a violent sexual assault by a stranger in a dark alley, this one is more like an abusive husband raping his wife and then making her cook him dinner. But it is just as much a violent violation of personal sovereignty in both instances.
