The Birth


It's hard not to be impressed with the depravity of the debate.

The Congress is going to retroactively allow our War Criminals


They are not going to allow defendents the right to see

the evidence held against them.

They want to hold them indefinitely and perhaps never bring them

to trial.

This is dialogue straight from Kafka.

Meanwhile, the US threatens sovereign nations from the World Body,

as if the delegates and representatives present have no ability to think.

And the press follows the shaking branch

wherever it leads them.

All the while, a few true leaders urge us to see the real problems

that face our race. (human)

What a strange turn of events.

When we need clear and bright leadership the most,

We must suffer the most onerous and unenlightened leadership

in our history.

As the time for all world leaders to talk and to listen grows critical,

Our leaders can only bark and offend.

When this time for greatness comes,

and a once great nation become callous and greedy,

We must see with eyes that are true and unvarnished.

And it is not the picture we have fashioned of ourselves.

It is a picture of wanton disregard for truth and well being.

It is a picture of a civilization on the verge of the abyss.

It is not the fault of the right

or the left.

Nor is it the fault of our fundamentalist churches

or the Church of Peter in Rome,

Nor is it the fault of the one who cleaned out the Holy Kaaba.

It is not the fault of the modestly well to do,

and it is certainly not the fault of the poor and the underprivileged.

It is not the fault of the Mexicans or the Jews or some other


It is not the fault of our media or of our journalists,

or even their owners.

It is not the fault of our parents or of our children.

It is not the fault of our education system.

As the Buddhist once said,

"There is plenty of blame in the World,

So don't worry about it so much

We are witnessing the Birth of the World.

And with that birth comes the death of the Nations, (Tribalism)

And the death of Capitalism, (the worship of money)

And the death of the pseudo-democracies that support it.

We are witnessing the change that had to come.

Be centered.

And be caring.

And be careful.

With your words

your deeds.

As Ann Richards said to her granddaughter,

"This is the only life you are given".

Use it Wisely.

I was born by a river in a little tent,
And just like this river,
I've been running ever since.
It's been a too long,
too long-time a-coming,
But I know a change gonna come,
Oh, yes, it is. (Sam Cooke)
