I promise to do my best, to do my duty to my god, and to the preservation of life on Earth. To help other people and to live for kindness, justice, and equality.

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.

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.

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.

The Origins of Money, HipCrime Vocab

the HipCrime Vocab is a source of many in-depth essays analyzing power in our society, where it came from, how it is distributed, and the ways in which the systems enforce control. What’s a hipCrime? Well you committed one when you opened this blog. Keep it up, it’s our only hope! The author just completed an insightful and dense series The Origins of Money, and at ten posts, I have to say I’m relieved that’s it come to an end :p
