Long after Master Race and decades before Extremism and Terrorism labels , I spent every August driving around Europe, as an inquisitive history explorer.

In the little town of Hallenberg, I met an old farmer lady, who schooled me in how Germans survived WWII: most came from the destroyed cities to little countryside villages, for food. We spoke of Patron Saints and cows and chickens hidden inside on the ground floor of her little farm house.

Seventy years later, the lesson remains, Tara -- perhaps our best hope to survive humankind's planetary history of slavery, lynching, internment and concentration camps -- if we can but replenish and restore that which we've raped.

Now, on our shared planet of weather extremes, we are engaged in a great global war between cultures, with hope for survival, our only victory -- a victory made possible by recognizing the enemy:

Moral decay of The Golden Rule and Statue of Liberty promise

Confused and disappearing Nature

A Constitution smeared with the excrement of denial, stupidity and prejudice.

If we continue to imprison each other with lockdown thinking, I want my Country back, we'll forever lose the sunrise of, in the Home of the Brave, the Land of the Free is everyone's country, and can never be conquered by those who choose to fail the lessons of Evolution, Herstory and Global Warming. It is not Free Will, but folly, not to reason why, but to deny and die.

Our salvation: victory over Corporatism & Consumerism's concrete climate changing us into crumbling infrastructure, Food Deserts and a regurgitated KKK, McCarthyism, WWII treatment of African-Americans in uniform, Japanese-Americans confined in internment camps even as their sons wore something Trump, Cruz and Cheney would never: an American military uniform in time of war.

Truth is, few can match the service of Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan, U. S. Army Bronze Star, Purple Heart, killed in Iraq, or son of Syrian immigrant Steve Jobs, or the sacrifice of military, civilians and President who died for the 13th Amendment.

For those still mistaking superficial gossip for in depth investigative reporting or trumped by non-presidential fear mongering as The American Way -- think of what we're leaving the children:

Iraq, innocent of 9/11 attacks, invaded by freedom loving society - us
