Murdering innocent children, all war all the time, systematic brutality and death. Madness. We must put an end to it.

Israeli aggression is American aggression, funded, supported and protected by a handful of billionaires. Photo after photo of mangled men, women and children, sickening, haunting images that ought to move us to action- any action- to bring an end to this madness.

When will it occur to us that this our world, and we can change it?

Do we each need to lose a loved one- personally see their blood in the streets? Do we all need to starve before we have compassion for the hungry?

Their are no grownups among us, no leaders, no saviors. I am personally responsible for all of it. And so are you. It's a raging sea of madness.Heal yourself. Walk away from insanity. Walk away from their illusory debt, their illusory enemies, their fear and their greed and their control. Understand that what you have feared the most has already come to pass. Embrace that.

We have the option of recognizing this and taking steps to avoid the inevitable chaos, suffering, brutality and death awaiting us. We can come together as humans, without the need of governments or institutions. Our powers, united, cannot be suppressed or denied. Our tools are love and compassion, and knowing that we dream bigger than those who seek to rule us.

We must withdraw support from failed, insane systems. Boycotting is one way to withdraw support, and it is very effective. Commerce is food for the malignancy, stop feeding it and it will die. Generalized, nationwide strikes will bring corrupt governments to their knees. These are simple truths, easily recognized once the fever of insanity has passed. Smaller ways to resist are as simple as closing out bank accounts, cancelling credit cards, refusing to incur further debt. Shop locally. Barter or trade. Grow your own food- share it with your neighbors. Make your own energy. Be radical, be caring, when you see suffering, do something to end it. Yes, there are hardships involved in taking these steps. There is risk. The cure will not kill us.
Society has failed. Let's build a better one.
