Listening to the Fugs, thinking about what to write

Because I have to just get down and do it. Once I start doing it, everything's, fine, but it's just the starting. Well, what's new around the world, in the U.S., elsewhere. Obama compromising, lets see what else. Oh, an 88 year old man shot up the Holocaust Museum in DC. The British National Party, a Fascist party in the UK, won an EU parliament seat. It looks like the same old shit in the U.S. is mysteriously persisting.

Oh, we're reaching the point of no return with pollution in the world's oceans, which will mean our eventual death if we don't clean it up soon.

Indigenous activists in Peru have been massacred protesting neo-liberal policies designed to open up their lands to development.

People are still as fucking stupid as ever.

Wilhelm Reich, in his book "The Murder of Christ" pictured people as a whole as a great sea, where things like the Russian Revolution only represented waves, with the leaders only representing the very surface of the wave; but he predicted that the great mass of people was stirring and that the change they produced would be profound. So far here in the U.S. it seems like the same all pervasive conservatism, an immobilizing conservatism, that Reich talked about is still much in effect although shaken by both the economic crisis and the multitude of scandals of the Bush administration.
