I will quote a section of his book that I feel encapsulates so much of the modern dilemma of any caring/feeling person in regards to how personally we are affected by the violent unfeeling actions of a world bent on militarism rather than compassion. A state of affairs that harks back to President Eisenhower's farewell address to the nation in 1961 warning of the influence of the military-industrial-complex that affects ALL levels of our society, even spiritual.
'In Zurich in 2007, I said that "The United States
Is in criminal violation of my universal human
Rights," to which the Red Cross worker responded, "We know that."
This is how any thinking person of the world sees the United States, it is SO sad.
A fine work.
Fractured moments of time and reality set against the tropical sun,lost in a shifting wilderness of confusion , street life- the grime the grit of a stranger in a strange land who questions a barbaric system in his home land.
