Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, if the drones don't get you than the fallout must!
on February 21, 2012
I am reading this work, pausing, contemplating the author's presentation, his argument and feeling so many feelings. I have a sense of gratitude to the author. Gratitude for his valor in writing this book. Perhaps his act will be one of the last reference points for what valor used to mean before it became a meaningless logo, perhaps the name of a new video training game to prepare our video game warriors to operate multiple drones over multiple sites. I am absorbing this author's well presented, fact-based presentation of what is happening while we in America fall even deeper and deeper into the sleep of our self-involved issues: our inability to share wealth, our inability to care for our sick, our unwillingness to value the child in our country, to provide a quality public education system, to address poverty...it is a hard book to read. It is an inconvenient truth, one of the thousands of calls to awareness, acceptance and action in this nation of its diminishing seemingly emasculated or deeply drugged, or tremendously distracted society. Perhaps it takes an act of valor to read it....but no, that's not valor either. Valor is something I am wondering about today. Thank you to the author and publishers for putting this forward. I am surprised that more reviews have not been posted...maybe I shouldn't be. Perhaps the only valorous thing a citizen can do is get active, protest, confront and try to maintain a view of workability and a better day for the world, its current state, its future.
