We Children of Empire

  On a jungle wall, in embittered scrawl – these words shouted out to the fall. We are the unwilling lead by the unqualified doing the unnecessary for the ungrateful   in the cradle of civilization - savage acts from the “civilized” is this where we die?   on a dirt road – kicking up [...]

The recent news about the Trump administration's attack on trans and non-binary rights (aka human rights) astonishingly claims a scientific foundation for their religious fascistic hatred and stupidity.

Fighting Absolutism With Activism

It is wildly overwhelming to stand before the doom and gloom of climate change and then feel good about riding your bike, or recycling. So, do we just say forget it? Or do we start somewhere?
