    Oh well, we're (collectively) similar enough that we more or less deserve it.

      the same conclusion about our plight, but I still want to make sure I do three things, given this plight: (1) accept the things I cannot change while trying to envision better things and strategies for improvement, which to me ultimately means system change to deep democracy of the economy and political system, not only in the U.S. but around the world; (2) try to extend the hand of human friendship as much as possible, not least of which to all potential allies, however imperfectly-situated, and most importantly to the weak wherever they are; and (3) live a life of inner peace as much as I can. I can be honest and cynical while fighting like hell, and loving as much as possible. I am for now stuck in the Deep South but even if I was not stuck, I am fulfilled by being on the front lines of human resistance to reactionary domination. Many people, particularly the poor, have no flexibility like me to one day move out of the Deep South. I will befriend them as much as possible, hopefully until the day I die. Peace be with you brother.

      My avatar is a photograph I took in 2008 of the headwaters of a waterfall in the imperiled Parque Nacional de Garajonay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on La Gomera, birthplace of my paternal grandfather, in the Canary Islands near the Sahara Desert.
