Men of hate keep a-coming.

Men of hate keep a-coming.

Death valley, Iraq war one.

Whose Garden Was This?

Whose Garden Was This? (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The prisoners may seem weak and controlled.   Hope and memory allowed the energy to endure great pain. Sometime the table can be turned. Will the prisoner serve the same medicine or forgive?

 

Revolution can backfire. When you destroy a structure build with old skills and honor. The new leaders maybe be weak and lack building skills and honor. A land can fall backwards and take decades to rebuild.

 

Children, woman and old people pay for the greed of war. Powerful countries don’t account for the dead civilians, cities or human rights. If the meek don’t stand together. They will fall and die together.

 

Coyote

 

“War is man’s sin. ”    John Denver

 

“Trouble no man about his religion-respect him in his view of the Great Spirit, and demand that of him that he respect yours. Treat with respect such things as he hold sacred. Do not force your religion on anyone. ”           Wabasha and Red Jacket, Seneca.

 

“May the great spirit keep watch over you and protect you always. ”                  Yellowtail.

 

The animal

 

Feeling like wild animal, locked up in a cage.


I want to escape, but I can’t go over the wall. The damn wall.


I walk back and forth, till I sit and scream out.


No-one hear me or want to hear the screams.


They enjoy watching the beast transfer to a coma state.


They praise themselves, they have re-trained and killed another one spirit.


The beast is watching. Waiting.


I had saved my last bit of strength. I will kill the master.

I will eat the flesh slowly. Ensure they know the pain I have learned.


I will pray for one good shot of a rifle.

To free me from this cage.


Coyote

Aspects of institutions

Although individual, formal organizations, commonly identified as "institutions," may be deliberately and intentionally created by people, the development and functioning of institutions in society in general may be regarded as an instance of emergence; that is, institutions arise, develop and function in a pattern of social self-organization, which goes beyond the conscious intentions of the individual humans involved.
As mechanisms of social interaction, institutions are manifest in both formal organizations, such as the U.S. Congress, or the Roman Catholic Church, and, also, in informal social order and organization, reflecting human psychology, culture, habits and customs, and encompassing subjective experience of meaningful enactments. Most important institutions, considered abstractly, have both objective and subjective aspects: examples include money and marriage. The institution of money encompasses many formal organizations, including banks and government treasury departments and stock exchanges, which may be termed, "institutions," as well as subjective experiences, which guide people in their pursuit of personal well-being. Powerful institutions are able to imbue a paper currency with certain value, and to induce millions into cooperative production and trade in pursuit of economic ends abstractly denominated in that currency's units.[citation needed] The subjective experience of money is so pervasive and persuasive that economists talk of the "money illusion" and try to disabuse their students of it, in preparation for learning economic analysis.[citation needed]

Wow. I'll probably have to read it a couple more times to get the details, but the motive I think is powerful. Good work
