Math for the Deprived of Knowledge and Skills

October 29, 2013

Economics, finance and Math make a lot of sense for the rich and the privileged, but for the poor and the Deprived of Skills and Knowledge it simply doesn’t add up at all.

You are born into this world without anything and you leave this world when you die, without anything. So what makes you think that you can own this world, that you can own the environment, that you can own skill and knowledge, that you can keep it from us, sell it to us at piece meal and make us dependent on you? What and who gives you that right?

You have developed a system of voting with your rules, not ours. You say that we have the right to vote so we can change our leaders who make your rules, not ours. And we have to wait for change, which once again comes in piece meal.

But the environment and our children cannot wait. While you make us wait to change your rules, our environment is being poisoned by your rules and our children are diseased and dying.

So if we are to survive in this society created by humans, we must take back what should have never been theirs and create an equal, open and transparent society for all. Without that the world will continue to be for the privileged and the few and injustice will continue to reign in our society because it is controlled by the few.

Miriam Carey Shot Near The U.S. Capitol

October 4, 2013

Although it is true that we live in a time of potential terrorist attacks and armed lunatics who shoot innocent people for dumb reasons, no matter what your opinion is of what happened yesterday, the fact is that our police forces shot a single unarmed mother in front of her toddler.

Did the police not see that there was a child inside the car? How much of a threat was this woman? The press reports that she “flattened barricades” but were any of the police officers there in real fatal danger at any given time? There are no doubt a lot of unanswered questions.

The police once again acted by shooting first and asking questions later. We live in a society that condones and justifies armed violence. It’s all for the fatherland, isn’t? Our armed security personnel and soldiers overseas are unquestionably nothing but heroes….allegedly working without pay that day, going beyond the call of duty….but killing a demented woman in front of her little girl nonetheless.

It is at times like this that it sickens me to live in the U.S. and I fear for my two boys. God help us all.

Unlike corporations and countries, humans can have hope for the future. Corporations and countries, unfortunately, are more concerned about the stupid societies they have created. The sooner we get rid of countries and change our societies to be more reflective of human and environmental needs, the better.
