Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.

Susan B. Anthony

 

So a short beginning to this blog, but short in words only.  Ponder upon the two great champions from the people of America.  Don’t despair, I will refer to others throughout the course of my mental perambulations on this site.
Two people, both of whom suffered deprivations and whose ethnic and gender descendants suffer still–even more so now since they have tasted from the fruits of freedom and now are forced once again to suffer the tortures of Sisyphus.
Freedom is, as the song goes, when you have nothing left to lose.  So do we now have nothing left to lose?  More about that at a later date.
Ask yourself and your neighbor this: how long must a discussion last about the nature of living and humanity before it becomes insanity?  The definition of which I borrow from one of the most brilliant of men (Jewish, might I add), Einstein, from when he stated most profoundly in its simplicity that insanity is asking the same question over and over again and expect different results.  How long must we ask these simple questions of the right and alt-right?  It is not complex once you render it down to its foundation: Are all humans, human?  Ask that.
