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.

Why Everything is Fu**ed

We all slid out of the womb an itty bitty helpless information sponge into a world full of mentally ill giants who couldn’t wait to fill our tiny skulls with all of their inner demons. And now everything, understandably, is fucked.

Reconciling Ecological Imperatives and the Right to Food at a Time of Bio-Ethical Crisis

Richard Falk discusses an extremely disturbing evolving situation by labeling it ‘the first bio-ethical crisis to confront humanity.’ It is bio-ethical in the primary sense that the challenges posed are fundamentally directed at the wellbeing and even survival of the species as a whole, and this crisis has an ethical character because knowledge and resources exist to overcome these challenges, and yet action is not being taken.

The Great American Shakedown

The U.S. Democratic Party and its liberal supporters are perplexed. They presented hours of evidence of an impeachable offense, and yet it has made no difference-public opinion is not moved. The liberal class and the Democratic Party leadership have failed to understand that they, along with the traditional Republican elites, have squandered their credibility. No one believes them. And no one should.

Open Letter to Roger Hallam

Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, has been accused of “anti-semitism” by big media for words he spoke taken out of context, leading to a massive backlash against the activist. This points to a much broader problem within mainstream media that climate activists need to understand: Big media is intertwined with other power centers, and they will fight tooth and nail against anyone who seriously challenges the status quo.

Paying It Forward: Interview With Nipun Mehta

The invitation is to “wake up to wisdom in stillness and community,” a simple gesture of service and connection that now takes place in people’s living rooms across the globe.

More on the U.S.-Backed Bolivia Coup: Stealing Bolivia’s Lithium?

Bolivia’s president Evo Morales was overthrown in a military coup on November 10. He is now in Mexico. Before being forced into exile by a miltary coup November 10, Morales had been involved in a long project to bring economic and social democracy to his long-exploited country. Bolivia has suffered a series of coups, often conducted by the military and the oligarchy on behalf of transnational mining companies. Initially, these were tin firms, but now the main target is its massive deposits of lithium, crucial for the electric car.

Can the Social Order Be Transformed through Personal Practice? The Case of Nonviolent Communication (NVC)

NVC can contribute to our collective ability to face and transform social conditions and systems, including, in particular, capitalism. Despite this potential, in actual practice, there is the risk that NVC, like other forms of psychotherapy and personal growth, can risk acting as a narcotic, making people happier to live in dysfunctional social systems.

Thousands of people will occupy the centers of some 60 cities around the globe, including Madrid, Amsterdam, Paris and New York, to stage nonviolent occupations of bridges and roads for at least a week.

Wild Mind: Reclaiming Our Original Wholeness

It’s time to take another look at ourselves — to re-enliven our sense of what it is to be human, to breathe new life into ancient intuitions of who we are, and to learn again to celebrate, as we once did, our instinctive affinity with the Earth community in which we’re rooted.

Saving the Planet Means Overthrowing the Ruling Elites

Friday’s climate strike by students across the globe will have no more impact than the mass mobilizations by women following the election of Donald Trump or the hundreds of thousands of protesters who took to the streets to denounce the Iraq War. This does not mean these protests should not have taken place. They should have. But such demonstrations need to be grounded in the bitter reality that in the corridors of power we do not count.
