I originally authored this post at a time when everyone's focus was on the Presidential campaign. It is time to recognize, once and for all, that no Democrat or no Republican is going to do anything to end the destruction of the world or improve our lives in any way.
American politics is hopeless, but life is much bigger than politics. Like religion, the established political system will only control us as long as we allow it to...as long as we continue to put our faith in it and work within its framework. Thought is three-dimensional. Life is three-dimentional. Our options are not simply left, right, or center.
There are things that I think we can do...things that do not involve door-to-door canvassing and surely don't involve giving money to politicians.
