choosing your leaders…

"Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery..." ― Octavia Butler, 'Parable of the Talents' 《Winner of the 'Nebula Award' for best Novel》

A timely quote full of much needed wisdom for the world in which we now live. The lying, racist pig now wallowing in the Offal Office meets all the criteria for dangerous leadership…

Our president is a fool.

poverty is not natural

Today is Mandela Day, and around the world caring people are honoring the memory of Nelson Mandela with 67 minutes of service.

Like slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is manmade and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. — Nelson Mandela

Imagine a world without poverty and hunger. We could make it happen in our lifetime.
