- "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly." Martin Luther King, Jr.
"The reality is not that I lack respect for the law; it’s that I have greater respect for justice. Where there is a conflict between the law and the higher moral code that we all share, my loyalty is to that higher moral code."
“This is what you shall do; love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.”

The Western hemisphere was colonized by European powers for what we would today recognize as profit driven motives, and the aboriginal people of two continents (not to mention Africa) paid the price in blood and lives. Unfortunately, the atrocities are still going on today. (SOURCE) What began with villagers at Ojo de Agua in Chiriquí province using trees … Continue reading
What do raw milk and cannabis have in common, besides both being ingredients in popular baked goods? Actually, they have quite a bit in common. You see, both are prohibited in the most of the United States (let’s ignore the federal war on pot for the moment), because our government claims it wants to protect us from our own ignorance and stupidity. In the case of cannabis, if it were legalized, most people – according to government propaganda – would immediately become … Continue reading
