Collective Karma

We've gotta get up on our feet immediately. We've gotta stand straight up to see what in the world is falling down all around us. Somewhere along the shortcut to becoming a Superpower Nation Monster Beast... we became a Superpower Nation Monster Beast.

The U.S. currently holds more people in prison than any other nation in the world...we've got more hemmed up than South Africa did during Apartheid.

Iraqi Deaths Due to United States, U.S., us Invasion....................1,109,934

...it's hOT! Is it November or June?

We could've given over 22 million kids four-year scholarships to public universities for the cost of this war...

we've been at war for seven years...we've been at war for 7 years.

The levees broke.

of the population of Georgia doesn't have enough food.

The governor is praying for water on national television.

Your freedom's in a bind...
Your freedom's in your mind..

Great post. It's amazing how quickly it seems the world is falling apart. Or rather, how long it's taken us to really pay attention.

Thanks for this post. I appreciate you bringing very real issues to the fore because irrespective of whether we are directly impacted by the prison industrial complex, WWIII, or Katrina, as citizens in the belly of the beast, we are all indirectly implicated. What a paradox to be so blessed in comparison to other nations and situations around the globe, while knowing good and well the karmic debt for the world's supamonster is imminent and looming.

That being said, I threw my fist up when you quoted Janelle on "Freedom." If we are outraged, if we are scared, the one place we can experience liberation and peace is within our own minds. When we are free from materialism, fascism, racism, homophobia, and every other mark of immaturity and ignorance, then we will be ready to lend a hand to free others.

I look forward to your blogs every week, B^2. Keep hope alive.
