- I always dreaded being like everyone else. This is why; At some stage the end will be here. And you'll face the final curtain. My friend, I'll say it clear. You'll state your case, of which Im certain. You've lived a life thats empty. You trod the path most trodden. And more, much more than this, you did it THEIR way. 'Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five' - Benjamin Franklin
- Adventurer, freedom fighter, revolutionary with unwavering commitment, ideals, ethics, morals, and conscience.
Citizen Of The World. I'm not a nationalist because that blinds most people to reality.
Have visited over 30 countries, and lived in southern Africa, the Middle East, the Balkan's and Asia.
Never compare me and what I did to the U.S. military. I think, therefore, have no desire to be one of them. I have a whole different value system and mindset. I served the worlds poor, downtrodden, and oppressed for no pay or benefits during or after. I settled for a sincere 'thank you' and smile for payment. Im proud to say I never served the Vulture Capitalist/Corporate Fascist interests.
- Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. 'How fortunate for leaders people don't think' Adolf Hitler ' A Fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance towards those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions, or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends' Henry A. Wallace " The world is my country, mankind is my brethren, and to do good is my religion" - Thomas Paine 'How fortunate for leaders people don't think' Adolf Hitler.
"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is obedience. Our problem is that people (YOU) all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders and millions have been killed because of this obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty, starvation, stupidity, war and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves and the grand thieves are running the country. THATS OUR PROBLEM!!!! - Howard Zinn
Passion is needed for any great work, and for revolution, passion and audacity are required in big doses.
