How can I help bring social change? … (08/29/09)

A few thoughts on social change … Consider the following: 1)  Resistance ensures persistence — always & allWays.  Anything that is railed against or attacked (verbally, emotionally or physically) inevitably attempts to defend itself and thereby becomes stronger.  Thus, all those who actively fight for freedom actually end up furthering the cause of their oppressors.  […]

on choosing sides … (08/21/09)

To those looking to either identify a “true guide” or denigrate a “false prophet”, I would offer the following: There is no quicker way to “get lost” than to focus on the finger pointing at the moon as opposed to that moon itself.   In doing so, some end up revering the finger and missing the […]
