this happened earlier today. Watch this, and then talk about your personal academic achievements. Watch this, and go out to the club with your insecure, anorexic girlfriends and pop the champagne. Watch this, and then retreat to your comfortable cubicle, plan for a financially secure and stable future, and shake with the unconfronted knowledge that you are an institutionalized drone conductor for the cancer that is killing the same people who are tirelessly, passionately fighting for your freedom. You are protecting the status quo more ardently than you will your fellow man.

These Palistinians are being so grossly mistreated in their unjust detainment that they have begun to starve themselves. How mant more are there, other than myself and my lover, who knows empathy for them? Who else feel the spike that is slowly puncturing the pulse of our world?
Satyagraha is the stregnth of truth, which is made possible through understanding, which is achieved with patience, and expressed with love.
