FIRE WORK NIGHT

Busy City – New Neighbors – Close Neighbors. Your guess is as good as mine and what’s up with the elephants? Mixed media, mostly ink.

STRAIGHT TALK – It seems to me that we have very clear priorities to attend to if we are to survive on planet earth very much longer.
First and foremost is climate change. We either admit the problem and deal with it, stopping all practices that work against that end, by force, if necessary, legal, if possible, or we perish. Society should triumph over individuals in this regard. Personal profit is totally unimportant against survival. What happened to the buggy whip manufacturers when the automobile replaced the horse? They retooled or died. Whatever. Get a damned clue.
Second, we cannot sustain the present form of huge international corporate mega-capitalism. It is an out of control monster: a willful environmental vampire and oppressor of human rights. Its rulers and masters make sociopathic decisions on a daily basis. As they control costs both quality and choice disappear from the marketplace. They tend to baronies, monopolies, and mini-kingdoms serving the pissant egos of self-styled “giants of commerce.” They are moribund, sucking ghouls, parasites on the planet and body politic. They are the great corrupters of mankind and despoilers of the earth.
Third, put religion in its rightful place, not in the government. If the marching morons of the western fundamentalist religious traditions stopped momentarily to exercise even the barest minimum of free individual thought, they would immediately realize that in structure, purpose and results, the forces they support fulfill the mission of their imagined Anti-Christ or its sectarian apocalyptic equivalent. One can argue that the fundamentalist marching morons are the people they prophesied who follow the WRONG master, necessitating and aiding the Arch Fiend’s attack on all virtue and goodness in the world. They are the armies of Satan, Shaitan, the bad guy. The fundamentalist marching morons are ignorant superstitious dupes who hurt other people at the direction of their sick as hell masters.
Fourth, if we wish to progress in a positive and healthful manner, we must help the females of our species to liberate themselves, and educate our children to a rational, scientific and progressive frame of mind. This will do more to eliminate the physical, mental and emotional abuse that has characterized our species’ formation (and created the corrupt and destructive society we inhabit today) than any other measure. We do not want to crowd young impressionable minds with superstitions, myths or self-destructive and debasing philosophies. We can do so much better for ourselves, and it begins with free self-directing women and smart well-loved children.
There is more, but this is a fair start. Just wanted to put these four points out for consideration and possible personal ACTION. We really don’t have any more time to waste. KOKO! (Keep On Keepin’ On!) -  j
