Re the vid you sent me Here is a link, worth a watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geIni_BwjGw&feature=share
***** Sister J, McKibben's my brother. I love him. I believe it is existentially impossible that any of us, with any breath, to not do our best. He is doing the best he knows.
I could only stomach watching the last few minutes of this vid.
McKibbben is a stake through the heart of all hope - he has no historical, physical, technological, scientific... basis, excuse, for saying:
A. We may not win (this is criminal bankruptcy of leadership as he insists on ALWAYS saying it);
B. A new twist (?) - we cannot even pay the price that King's folks did - they won't shoot us - DEATH FAST???? FOR EXAMPLE????).
NO, THE TRUTH IS WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE... IF ENOUGH OF US PAID, IN MONTHS, NOT YEARS, THE PRICE THAT THE CIVIL RIGHT'S WORKERS PAID OVER DECADES.
WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE... IF ENOUGH OF US PAID, OR OFFERED, THAT PRICE, IN COMING MONTHS. WE COULD NOT LOSE....
THE INSANITY IS TOO GREAT THAT WE ARE PERPETRATING, THIS ECOCIDE, NEEDLESS, NEEDLESS, ECONOMICALLY INSANE.... ECOCIDE.
"WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE... IF ENOUGH OF US OFFER THE PRICE OF OUR LIVES, NOW. WE'D WIN INFINITELY FASTER, AS LOWER PRICE BY ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE, WINNING MORE THAN ANY GROUP IN HISTORY BY ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE... "
THIS SHOULD BE HIS MESSAGE - WE, BY EVERY HISTORICAL, FINANCIAL, PHYSICAL, SCIENTIFIC, TECHNOLOGICAL MEASURE - WE CANNOT LOSE IF ENOUGH OF US PAY, OR TOTALLY BEGIN TO PAY, OFFER TO PAY - THE TOTAL PRICE OF OUR LIVES, NOW.
SEE IT, SISTER J, THEN...
TELL HIM, SISTER J.

I strongly suspect that there is only one true Revolution possible for the human species - past, present, future. And the only time it ever has been tried, to my knowledge, is for several decades during and after the life of Jesus. That Revolution? Lived, total, solidarity with the Global Neediest (human and non-human species). "The Golden Rule is to steadfastly refuse to have what millions cannot have," is how Gandhi said it. "Do unto others ALL that you would have them do unto you," is how Jesus Lived it, and how He or his followers, said it.
