The future needs a big kiss

“The future needs a big kiss, winds blow with a twist. Never seen a moon like this, can you see it too?” Bono, U2, ‘Get On Your Boots’, No Line on the Horizon (2009).

“War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.” – George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four.

“People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.’ – V, V for Vendetta.

I’m writing this in March of 2017. Like Winston Smith with his diary in Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, or V in V for Vendetta, or the ‘you’ in Get On Your Boots, this is for everyone but also for no one in particular. The ‘what’ of who I am does not matter, for it is the ‘why’ that is more important.

Our world is in an ongoing crisis that has lasted for decades. It is a highly unjust and unequal world and its wrongs need righting. It has become conceited and serving not to all people and beings, but to those in hidden control.

In 2017, the climate of issues that concern all people see only the slowest of progress; for every place indeed full of vivacious and genuine pursuit of making this planet a pleasant one to live, there are more doing the opposite.

In 2017, we need a revolution, and the right revolutionary to facilitate it. We cannot see the future now, but we are fearful for it, not of it. If this message finds you at a time when this revolution is complete and successful, then it would be worthwhile to have lived.

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.
