Fact: I see no where in evidence today 1 millionth the humanity evidenced in the women's suffrage struggle. In the evermore toxic culture of greed, religious addiction to pleasure, we have grotesquely devolved as a species to the point of being no longer viable.

Fact:: all war is psychological. Fact: the weapon of un violint warriors is inflicting the pain, near unbearable, of the awful price they personally pay for what is right, on the opponents, and passive onlookers. Fact: because eco- side is so invisible the personal price offered must be orders of magnitude more awful than any before seen in history.

***** the purpose and function of un violence is to penetrate, to rip away, the veneer, the facade, the camouflage, to reveal underneath the true violence knowing that human physiology and psychology, even unvoluntarily, cannot remain evil, cannot allow evil, when it is clearly, sufficiently revealed. By far the most clearly I've ever seen this is in reading the book Iron Jawed Angels. See library tab this blog.

By being poor and on the street I'm coming in contact with the closest thing we have in this society that can be considered universal family, that which Jesus died to bring to us. My point? There is such a thing, it exists. It is tiny, barely alive, but it exists, it is possible.

'I must find out what people or groups in history have produced the most persistent loving. 'Everyone knows that they should not participate in politics,' said Teresa Calcutta. I've always been uncomfortable with her statement. But I've never been able to discard it. I spent much of my life studying un violent change movements. And I am glad. But few if any have changed Humanity's heart. Everything depends on changing Humanity's heart. When and how has this been best done?

nd I just don't know if I have the strength, wisdom, vision, love, compassion to accept that humanity is lost, with few exceptions. But if I am a creature of Love and Truth then I should face that and get on with doing what I can to help the few. I really think this is what I should do, and this is the only real work ahead of us.

ARGH - I FEEL LIKE AN MD IN THE MIDST OF A GLOBAL PLAGUE OF ZOMBI-ISM  THAT IS
DESTROYING MY FAMILY... AND NO ONE, INCLUDING ME, HAS A CLUE
OF HOW TO CURE THE PLAGUE.

Other options:

Wait, wait, wait... for the right ultimate sacrifice time.  If the heart paddles have only one charge, and it is discharged on a corpse, well, that just killed the opportunity to save, right?

This speaks to ...
getting the surgery,  chemo...

'My best guess as to what the future holds for Loving.' Loving

[from a note to our premier Unviolent Warrior]

My cancer consult is next Thurs. 

I'm sure you are probably deeply read in the women's suffrage movement,
but ever since I saw Iron Jawed Angels a year ago I've been
in awe, and within the last 2 months read A Woman's Crusade -
Alice Paul and learned sooooooo much more.

Know what Martyr means? I didn't - learned that one just now
reading Steve Biko's writings - Martyr means witness; and I think
that means "evidence," "proof," "testament..." to the truth.

Inez Milholland was a Martyr - a witness that, you bet your ass
women's rights NOW is worth our very lives, NOW.  Did she want to be a martyr?
Did she want to die? Did she want to work herself to a 30 year old
death?  SHE WANTED WOMEN'S RIGHTS, NOW.  HER LIFE BECAME
AN UNMISTAKABLE WITNESS TO THAT. 

When Inez worked herself to death for the cause, who did she wake up? 
A DOZEN OR SO OF THE MOST COURAGEOUS
ACTIVISTS ALIVE - ALICE PAUL, AND ANOTHER HANDFUL, THAT
ALREADY WERE ON RAGING FIRE, BUT INEZ WITNESS MADE IT A BONFIRE,
THAT NO ONE KNEW WAS POSSIBLE.  That's how it works.  Right?
Or, the bonfire never, NEVER happen.

I am certain now that we are infinitely too dead to stop ecocide -
no matter that we could do it without breaking a sweat, almost none
of us dying.  Too inconvenient.  We are the
zombie apocalypse, already.  But, slowing it down,
saving 1, let alone 100 million over the next 1000 generations,
what would that be worth?  My life, if I could figure out how to
spend that, my life, MY ONLY ASSET, in a way that hold's promise?

Rock yes!  No?

*>:D< big
 hug

My guess is that I'll find the new prognosis, treatment plan, of too
great a cost to society, and coming at the wrong time - the most firtile
6 months in human history to reduce, slow, stop... ecocide by global warming.

My lead thought is to go on a trek, a bike ride, around the country, till
the cancer stops me, with the message, question, a sign along the lines of:

WOULDN'T
U DIE 2
STOP ECOCIDE
BY FOSSIL FUELS?

Homeless vet Israel this morning: loving, I get paid next week and I'm going to rebuild your vigil. This 52 year old African American man, very intense, very serious , I have every reason to believe he means what he says. I'm deeply humbled and encouraged to inspire even a little of this goodness in another. This is our entire work, is it not?

'What We have done to Jesus teaching is beyond barbaric, is beyond primitive. He was entirely telling us that our psychology. And he was giving us the most advanced instructions analogous to using a computer, or diagnosing and treating a disease. Look at what we've done to it! We've turned it into unintelligible, worthless gibberish; useless, deadly mysticism. Snake oil. Nightmare.Utter madness.' Loving

***** [How fast can any population of addicts be Saved?] I've been wrong. I am sorry. Hopefully I'm learning: [added to the "Resurrecting..." book]: 119. I stop making the mistake of fantasizing that everyone, all, most… any but a Miniscule minority can be saved. Jesus has hardly Saved anyone, in 2000 years, and He was the best the World's seen. Just cuz I, or He, want to, does NOT make it possible. The world was to toxic with Affloholism, and now by 7 billion times more. Saving self and others remains the work, but but the one, or two, not all Humanity.' Loving

nd 'I caught a flash of Jesus' vision last night. First time I've experienced that. It was his late in life prophecy Of how it would be in the end. It is not the details that I'm interested in or believe. It is the emphasis on how many are lost, AND WILL STAY LOST, DETERMINEDLY, AND THAT THIS WAS A LATE IN LIFE REVELATION FOR HIM, AN UNWANTED REVELATION FOR HIM, AS IT IS FOR ME . To his horror he saw how many were lost. He saw how few could be saved. Me too. I'm really damnale if I keep forgetting this. It is irresponsible of me. It is wrong.' Loving
