Democracy

Trump with an important messsage

Big Fat Love, Find Common Ground, To Halt The Spread of Lies. If we don't control insiders this will be over.

Concentration of Wealth and Power

Noam Chomsky

10 reasons why America is not a democracy, is a horrible place to live, is causing mass distress, and is killing children and adults alike, both in America and in foreign nations.

This Gun Debate Ignores Empire's Power

Killer Mike

It's not even a debate, it's just another idealogy laced fight between the lower classes, a distraction from the real threat of Empire.

Of course people are jumping on Killer Mike because he appeared on NRA TV to provide a position that taking away people’s guns will not solve the issues America is facing. I have worked as a tireless advocate on the behalf of children and disenfranchised women in society, I’ve also worked with gun groups like Georgians’ Against Gun Violence, so I say if there’s a table to be sat at, a gun owner needs to be there.

How Can The Enemy State, Have Citizens This Friendly?

The American people are our brothers and sisters, The American Government is the enemy to life on Earth. We have to love the people, the people have to reclaim their government and change its ways. Before it's too late.

I feel so much love in this place, this community in Colorado where I am surrounded by amazing people who are doing all they can to make the world better. But any time I start reading up on the latest happenings in “the world” I am bombarded with just how horrible, cruel, and desperate the US government has become. Today we had Ann Coulter come at Trump hard for signing the $1.

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.

Nobody Can Do This Alone

Our survival is the responsibility of everyone, we can make that our governments priorities, but we need to take power back in order to do that.

For me the biggest relief over these years is learning that I’m not solely responsible for saving our species from extinction. The hardest thing to come to terms with is that most of the species is ignorant of the dangers we face, or responsible in their own small way for pushing us closer to the edge. Alone you cannot save us from the impact climate change will have on our ability to produce enough food for our survival.

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.
