Richie Havens – On The Turning Away

  Richie Havens was a rare talent – as a singer, a guitarist, a songwriter, an artist, a poet, an actor, and especially, as a person. Instead of living “the good life” by taking advantage of celebrity worship and soulless endorsement of anything anyone’s willing to sell, he was a passionate, pro-peace activist. He educated […]

Don’t Do It by Ralph Nader

This is potentially one of the most dangerous foreign policy issues facing the United States today. It scares me to see how many people are able to ignore the extreme danger of the insanely provocative behavior exhibited by the Imbecile-In-Chief. We are encouraging a new wave of terrorist attacks against civilians who are innocent of […]

The Necessary (R)evolution Will Not Be Televised

  Capitalism is oppression. It’s oppression delivered through racism, patriarchy, intolerance of “others”, religious zealotry and other tools of dividing us – basically the spreading of hate, greed and fear.

When Will We Learn?

The sun never set on the British Empire back in the day. The same with the Russian Empire. The Spanish, French, Dutch, Portuguese… they all travelled the world in the past few centuries invading foreign lands, enslaving people who did nothing to them and forcing their way of life on cultures who differed from them […]

HEALING

HEALING I’ve been thinking about health lately and started jotting down my thoughts on it – ideas about the health of individuals as well as the health of society as a whole and the relationship between them. I guess to think about health in this way is somewhat of a holistic way of looking at […]

Tom Hayden

Upon hearing about the death of Tom Hayden, I decided to write a little something about him. He was a person who spent his entire adult life trying to help his fellow citizens – not just fellow citizens of the U.S., but fellow citizens of the planet. Mainstream history (besides being mostly fabrication and White-washing) […]
