I’m ready to follow these young people to a better future

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 02:26:29 +0000

Parkland students like Emma Gonzales remind me so much of myself at their age. I was ready to change the world, and I knew exactly how to do it. I also rocked the same kind of natty friendship bracelets, and even shaved my head (well, part of it). I helped mobilize thousands of students to ...

I am the history of the terrorized incarceration of myself

Mon, 05 Feb 2018 16:19:17 +0000

I haven't posted a poem in a while, and this one keeps coming back to me, most recently via Mona Eltahawy's wonderful essay about the restoring the righteous rage of women and girls. Poem about My Rights BY JUNE JORDAN ...

Stay alive, stay connected

Check out the late Grace Lee Boggs on how to foster solidarity and make it through this horrible time with our souls and hopefully our social fabric intact. Her words are only becoming more and more important. “I’ve come to believe that you cannot change any society unless you take responsibility for it, unless you ...

The FCC is about to vote to end net neutrality—breaking the fundamental principle of the open Internet. I'm supporting an effort to create an avalanche of calls to Congress to stop it.

Net neutrality affects everyone who uses the Internet. This is for all of us.

I will say it again: please stop thinking everything will work out in the end. The only way that happens is if massive numbers of Americans rise up and do not allow business as usual to continue. It’s on US. The institutions that got us to this moment are not going to suddenly fix it. ...

Can you be Buddhist and antifa at the same time?

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 19:39:45 +0000

Haven’t processed all of this yet, but this is a great exploration of antifa from a Buddhist perspective. Please read if like me you are troubled by both violence and nazis. Buddhists and the Bloc: An Open Thread On Antifa On perceptions: I also want to think about this on a “Buddhist” level. What do ...

The price of collaboration

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 01:24:35 +0000

From visiting the wonderful Dutch Resistance Museum many years ago, I knew about the “Judenrat,” councils of Jewish leaders that Nazis used to facilitate the implementation of their own annihilation. Although I’m Jewish and believe it’s important to remember the Holocaust, I never really spent that much time learning the political history. I foolishly thought that “never ...
