Today at the most war-glorifying, soldier-heroing ceremony ever – the ceremony that repeatedly bellowed the lies of this war of spreading freedom & democracy while protecting our freedom & democracy – we stand in the middle of the parade route and represent the voice of peace. We (including our 77 yr. old elder) are spit on, screamed at, threatened, materials snatched from our hands & ripped up, as we stand on the grounds of peace.

“Net Neutrality!” Can they really control the internet?
Friday May 05th 2006, 5:31 pm
Filed under: Justice,media,politics,Truth
Written By:

Understandably the thought of “Controlling the Internet” appears to be a daunting task. In fact; could they do that? Isn’t there a hodgepodge of networks and technologies that is this wonderful melting pot for the whole world to share in? And it’s diversity almost impossible to control because of it’s complexity?

As of now, the simple answer to that is:
YES
They can control all of that.

V-Day 2006: Until the Violence Stops. I was given the privilege to be part of the cast of “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ensler, presented on the campus of the University of Utah last night and benefiting programs for the prevention of violence against women and girls here in Utah. Although I have seen the Vagina Monologues 3 or 4 times previously, it was incredibly moving to be part of the cast representing women of different ages from diverse backgrounds and experiences. This experience moved me to post on DS after a long absence.

Prop This
Monday December 05th 2005, 9:04 pm
Filed under: education,Justice
Written By:

With the recent victories against the inane California Propositions proposed by Arnold Swarzenneger, it got me thinking about a repeal of proposition 227. Back in 1998 California Proposition 227 essentially banned bilingual education in schools throughout California. This amounted to a vicious assault, primarily against Spanish speaking immigrants, spearheaded by then Republican governor Pete Wilson […]

Written By:

“While magic as I understand it is more a craft than an art or a science, the basic principle holds. The medium of magic is consciousness — one’s own consciousness, that of other people, and (more controversially, at least within the worldview of modern industrial culture) that of other-than-human entities of various kinds. The tools of magic are will, imagination, and the innate structures of consciousness itself, constellated through formal patterns of symbol and ritual. The goals of magic are defined by the individual magician.”
