Getting in Trouble

All my life I've been getting in trouble and been afraid of getting in trouble. I'm not afraid anymore and you can't be either, because we really need your help.

I hadn’t been using my blog because I was afraid to, afraid of what would happen if I wrote about what I was thinking. When I was 18 I used to write about getting tattoos and making money to get tattoos. These days I write about the atrocities committed by the American Empire both locally and globally, I write in protest to a system so corrupted by power that its current course is set on destroying all life as we know it.

Sunday Service - A Seat at the Table

In our current society we give others a seat at the table, and then teach them to concentrate power and dominate their group.

You don’t really seem like a Church person Dirk - Anyone I’ve met. Some who read my post “Do Justice, Love Kindness, Walk Humbly” will recognize that is not my quote, in fact I heard it at service that day and was inspired to come out to the same park I am in now to write about it. Again this Sunday, after attending the Fort Collins Mennonite Fellowship I am feeling inspired to write about service and duty, things that have meant a lot to me my entire life (as a scout), and which I feel a longing for when I am not doing regularly.

We Will Be Destroyed, If We Remain Divided

Under the oppression of tyranny we learn helplessness. Under constant division we stand alone. Under threat of violence we do not fight for freedom. Together we can get our fair share. Together we can serve our purpose. Together we can change the future. Stand Together & Together We Stand.

Do Justice, Love Kindness, Walk Humbly

A society founded on the values of justice, kindness, and equality, would be radically different to our dominant capitalist culture.

This society which praises capitalism for its efficiency in driving progress, justifies the destruction of life under the claim it has permission of both the people and God. These justifications are not only unacceptable, they’re also lies. The dominant culture is driven by neither Democratic or Christian values which it pays so much lip service to. Democracy and Christianity are frameworks for creating equality among people, in theory. In practice the dominant forms of Democracy and Christianity have been co-opted by the powerful to serve as tools that concentrate wealth and power to reward themselves and punish everyone else.

I Love Americans, I Love Russians

"America itself could be described as one gigantic ongoing psyop" - Caitlin Johnstone

I love Americans, I’ve even been in love with a few of them, they are good-hearted human beings, for the most part, like most people, for the most part. I love Russians, I am the son and brother of Russians, they are good-hearted human beings, like most other people. I’ve never lived in Russia, I’ve never experienced their day-to-day life, their culture first hand, their language surrounding me, their food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, their entertainment and advertising filling my waking moments.

America Will Collapse, Earth Will Boil, and Humanity Will Perish

Understanding this will help you plan for your future.

America Will Collapse As an Australian who spent 6 years in the hyper-capitalist center of the world (New York City) I’ve had to improve my coping mechanisms immensely as the harsh reality of massive inequality was shoved in my face. Last year I moved to a small town in Colorado to run-out-the-clock as I shift my career back to Perth to get away from a nation that’s tearing itself apart.
