Peace, Justice & Freedom

Isms isn’t the point…

Hitler-Eva-583845Adolf Hitler considered himself a Socialist, Capitalist, Fascist and Nazi in various measures.

But comparisons between Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump are misguided.

Hitler was a frustrated and undereducated artist.  Donald is a venal and undereducated chump. Donald, at this point in history, will spend trillions killing millions to enhance his own bottom line.  This will result in disaster, and it’s no longer preventable.

The isms taught in political science 101 have become archaic myths, begging questions and proving no useful guide. Peace, justice, equity and freedom are goals, but antiquated isms are no longer the issue. MQ-04062012-Pogo-Enemy-oumgga


“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there “is” such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and postive action.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.


“If you don’t stand for something you fall for everything.”

― Malcolm X

― Martin Luther King Jr.

I’ve had enough of someone else’s propaganda… I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”
― Malcolm X

 

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“… the young people are the ones who most quickly identify with the struggle and the necessity to eliminate the evil conditions that exist.”
― Malcolm X,

“The question is not if we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.
― Martin Luther King Jr.

Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“Time is on the side of the oppressed today, it’s against the oppressor. Truth is on the side of the oppressed today, it’s against the oppressor. You don’t need anything else.”
― Malcolm

Socialism and Capitalism are ancient and flawed theories. These theories do not exist in the real world nor do they precipitate liberation or revolution.

hiler“Adolf Hitler, whose National Socialist (Nazi) Party adapted fascism to Germany beginning in 1933, said:The state should retain supervision and each property owner should consider himself appointed by the state.’ It is his duty not to use his property against the interests of others among his own people. This is the crucial matter. The Third Reich will always retain its right to control the owners of property.”
(Barkai 1990, pp. 26–27)

Instead of retreating to a failed past, we can invent sustainable futures
where everyday people endure, survive and prevail.

The Rise of a ‘Democratic’ Fascism

wareconomy

Some analysts believe a new form of fascism has formed that has disguised itself as democracy with relentless propaganda and continuous war.

It remains our responsibility to expose lies, warmongers, profiteers and criminal elements. We must re-awaken popular reform movements, and demand equitable change. No fear, no compromise and no surrender.
