Words

Some words. You can consider it a poem if you would like to... Word - Word them up:
calm

joyful

peaceful

resolute

dignified
It's a work in progress. But I just wanted to get it down. To be utterly revealing, the topic is branding for the movement for peace and justice and nonviolence (and resistance to: the corruption and tyrannies of power, and the (destructiveness to the planet, to ecosystems, to societies and individuals - of the) violent corporatist crusade for dominance.) It is to establish a mental banner, a frame of sorts, for those who are engaged in the struggle. I am struggling to create a better world, a sane and sustainable society that respects and serves humanity, all life, and the Earth.

please join me

[Of course, the movement would need to consent to such a (mental - or spiritual) banner...]

  1. I will add words here until I get enough compiled to make a fuller and more complete work:

    1) responsive (as opposed to reactive, or "reactionary")

  2. "Haven't you heard, it's a battle of words.."

    Just the words themselves won't suffice without taking into account the individual people saying them.

    Given the fact that everyone is from all over the place, the ways people express themselves is usually all over the place too.

    Branding is of course a big part of American life, a symptom of corporate homogeneity.

  4. No Patrick. This is about vision. It is about choosing principles and embodiment of those principles.

    This is about consciousness and intentionality. Intentional living. Thinking about how my actions will affect everyone.

    So, this is not a war of words. This is just brainstorming.

    Do you have a vision of a better world?

  6. I also didn't "suffice" directed at you, I meant "suffice" insofar as how I can work it..

  10. Or as far as tort insofar as the definition provided by dictionary.com: " Damage, injury, or a wrongful act done willfully, negligently, or in circumstances involving strict liability, but not involving breach of contract, for which a civil suit can be brought."

    - like to participate in a class action lawsuit maybe. or a class action confrontation with a system that is full of wrongs and harmful.
