Frankly folks, I’m starting to foam at the mouth. This war seems like it’s going to be a huge disaster that could easily spread to Israel, Jordan, and Iran. And people aren’t talking about it. People are blithely sharing pictures of cutie kitties and shit on Facebook. They are quoting Buddhist ideas of accepting what we can’t change and changing our attitudes instead. But this war plan… it’s being executed by humans in our name. We CAN change this shit. It’s a matter of self-control, of reeling in our killer instinct and not going into a food frenzy whenever we get a whiff of oil. This means being a free-thinking rhetorical slave and standing up to the master narrative. It means spitting in the Kool-Aid tainted milk instead of lapping it up. It means hissing at the man, and if need be scratching.
So, this morning’s cute-kitty-pic has a bit of a tude. It’s flippin’ pissed. And it’s not going to accept this war.
