"Respectability: Living in a way that the poor should weep in Joy, Awe, Gratitude." SL

"Respectability: 

Living in a way that the

poor should [would if they fully knew]
weep in Joy, Awe, Gratitude, Wonder;

That is, Incarnating Universal Love;
BEING Immediate Family TO the least of these.

[Thomas, Jesus, King, Gandhi,
Teresa, Romero, Eleanor Roosevelt,
Pr. Obama, Michelle Obama,
Diane Wilson, Col. Ann Wright.]


Dis-Respectability:

EVERYTHING less than, EVERYTHING else besides
BEING IMMEDIATE FAMILY TO
the least of these our global brothers and sisters;
that is, NOT being Universal Love incarnate /
Immediate Family TO ALL,
ESPECIALLY the poor in
Spirit (enemy, wicked, foreigner)
and materiality."

"There are but 2 Great Religions: 1. RESPONSIBILITY (Love); 2. UN-RESPONSIBILITY (Violence)" SL

RE: "There are but Two Great Religions: 1. RESPONSIBILITY (Love);
2. UN-RESPONSIBILITY (Violence)" SL

'Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve."  MLK Jr.

Leo Tolstoy was the common cause of both Gandhi (virtually entirely),
and MLK Jr. (very substantially).  The book that shaped MLK Jr., read
when he was in Crozier Seminary in Chester, PA was,
"THE LAW OF LOVE, AND THE LAW OF VIOLENCE."  Love and Violence
are the only means of human existence, physically, practically,
ACTUALLY, REALLY.  We survive, eat, maintain relationships, are
housed and clothed base on EITHER
1. GIVING (POWER FOR), NON-VIOLENCE / PEACE MAKING or
2. TAKING (POWER OVER), VIOLENCE / WAR MAKING.

These are the only two GREAT RELIGIONS, GREAT LAWS BY WHICH
HUMANS CAN EXIST.  This is not a matter of superficial choice, but
rather the fact of, the physics of survival.

1.  RESPONSIBILITY - Survival by CONTRIBUTION TO THE WELLBEING
OF THE WHOLE.  This is what all healthy tissue (non-cancerous) and
all life forms EXCEPT FOR HUMANS do.  Humans have "Fallen" away
from this natural, DNA ordered "religion," way of being.  "Christianity,
[Judaism, Buddhism...] what a wonderful idea.  What a shame no one
has tried it." CS Lewis (?)  Gandhi, King, Jesus, Eleanor Roosevelt,
Gaffar Kahn, Diane Wilson, Col. Ann Wright Thomas....

2.  UN-RESPONSIBILIY - SURVIVAL BY TAKING - Cancer, Parasitism,
VIOLENCE, POWER OVER OTHERS, EXPLOITATION (USUALLY COVERT). 
Christianity, Peace Movement, Capitalism, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam,
American "Freedom"... as practiced these thousands of years.

My understanding is that living with Gandhi was pretty much unbearable....

My understanding is that living with Gandhi was pretty much unbearable.

I guess it was just as bad living with ML King, Jr, Jesus, Romero....

I guess I knew that but I hadn't thought of it for a long while.

I've NEVER heard any suggestion that they INTENDED to be unbearable to live with;
Quite the contrary. 
It just goes with the territory;
with the Call.

My father was profoundly difficult to live with.
Greatest man
I've ever personally known.
(First time I've ever thought of that.
It TOTALLY was not his intent to be so.)

"War Making = Demanding Respect. Peace Making = Earning Respect." SL

This is a HUGE epiphany for me today.
Thank you Father.



"War Making = Demanding Respect vs 
Peace Making = Earning Respect.

Violence vs Non-Violence;

Non-Love vs Love respectively;

aka
Authoritarian vs Authoritative."

"Example is not the major thing in influencing people; it is the only thing." Dr. Albert Schweitzer

[Friends - I value your time as though my childrens' lives depend upon it -
because they do.  I never send that which I believe is not crucial to their
lives, and yours, but I rely on you to read what strikes you as important,
and flush the rest].

Having been well stimulated by recent dialog with a few of you, and having received
substantial Violence, unintended, from two considered internationally acclaimed
"Non-violent activists" recently, who now I see to be nothing of the sort,
tragically, sadly - once again my nervous system proves to me the old adage - if
it doesn't kill you, you grow.  Some of the fruits to me of this trauma, and
these dialogs, I'll share here:

"Example is not the major thing in influencing people; it is the only thing."
Dr. Albert Schweitzer  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Schweitzer  Nobel
Peace Prize 1952 (I was 1 year old) 
[Note to two friends:  I know nothing of the lives of Christopher Hitchings
nor Andrew Harvey that is not profound divorce from this Truth.  I do not
question their right to this Divorce, but I find them useless, no, dangerous
as a consequence.
"Nothing has so caused the needless suffering in the world as "Sages" that
Say but do not Do [I give you the Organized Religions, including Atheism, and
"Activism."]  These are the Hypocrites, clinically, that Jesus centrally warned
us of."  SL  (Yes, they piously, sacredly killed him.)

"Technically: Violence = Non-Loving; Non-Violence = Loving." SL 
"What does non-violence mean?
Uh, the love of mother for her child."
Gandhi paraphrase with liberties taken

"The Golden Rule is about Motive (Universal Love) NOT behavior."  SL
"[Love] unto others as you would
have them [Love] unto you."  CJ (as translated by SL)

"Why Jesus remained silent:
He would not aid and abet his sibling's violence on him."  SL
"Non-cooperation with evil is every bit as much a duty as
it is to not do evil."  Gandhi paraphrase

"Violence:  Neglecting our Duty to Love Each as Immediate Family."  SL

"Loving, like Skiing, divorced from Acting, is Nothing."  SL
"Love is that which cannot remain passive in the face of suffering."  Teresa of Calcutta paraphrase.

"Love EQUALS Life."  SL

Octogenarian DC school teacher jailed for protecting Humanitarian prisoned in Guantanimo since 2002

Re: Octogenarian DC school teacher jailed for protecting Humanitarian prisoned in Guantanimo since 2002

On January 25, 2010, Judge Lynn Liebovitz sentenced noted anti-war activist Eve Tetaz to 25 days in D.C. Jail (beginning today), another 50 days suspended, one year probation with a stay away order from all of Capitol Hill. More details and Eve's contact information will be forthcoming. Below is the sentencing statement Eve made today in court. An article about Eve by WASHINGTON POST reporter Keith Alexander will appear as a feature story within a few days.


Sentencing Statement, January 25, 2010:

Your honor, I do not question the process by which a jury of my peers found me guilty of unlawful conduct. I assume responsibility for the personal costs of my actions, which I firmly believe promote justice ad peace in the world in which we all live.

My efforts to give voice to the values which I believe are at the core of our country's leadership in world are nonviolent. I believe that nonviolent protest against government policies is, has been and will continue, to be the only authentic form of individual political action. Such action on the part of individuals does change the course of human history.

History speaks of the power of nonviolent protest that has changed the face of our social landscape in ways we now take for granted -- the civil rights movement being only the most recent example in the history of our country. Martin Luther King was right when he paraphrased the words of Theodore Parker spoken more than 150 years ago -- the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.

This truth is not readily apparent -- indeed does not exist -- without the actions of individuals who are responsive to the needs of the oppressed, and recognize the trends of history.

I will continue to participate in the movement of our civilization that is committed to building structures of social justice that are rooted in peace among the nations and the citizens of the world. The 19th Century poet, Emma Wilcox said that to sin by silence is to make cowards of us all. This is the cause that is my life. This is why I am present in court today representing the victims of America's wrong doings, people such as Adel Fattough Ali Al Gazzari, an Egyptian, wounded in Afghanistan while serving with the Red Crescent Society, sold for bounty to the Americans, and detained at Guantanamo Bay since December 2002. This is why I cannot remain silent.

Thank you.

PR. OBAMA IS OUR CEO - please seriously ponder that thought.

Subj: PR. OBAMA IS OUR CEO - please seriously ponder that thought.

Many of us work or have worked in an employer situation, that is, within
an organization that provided a means of support to us, right? Well, in
such situations, we may or may not like everything the CEO does, but we
remain loyal, because we know that if the CEO fails, we are screwed.
Right? AND WE DON'T GO LOOKING FOR, AND FOLLOWING OTHER CEO'S.
RIGHT?!?!?!!? Yet that is EXACTLY what most of us are doing with regard
to CEO Obama. If he fails, if his agenda (our agenda) fails, we are
PERMANENTLY screwed. But don't we spend 90% of our time, NOT DOING
OUR JOB WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION, but rather playing as, or subscribing
to other pretend CEOs (pundits, writers, HuffPost, BuzzFlash, Olbermann,
Stewart, etc, etc)???????? Yes, we do.

We, our children, our children's children are being warred on by the Rethug
Fascist hoards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you aren't fighting with all
you've got ALONGSIDE PR. OBAMA - WE'RE SCREWED.
