The Perfect Storm

When America fought WWI and WWII, there was an expression used by those who returned home to describe “war” to friends and family.

“War is days of unimaginable boredom interspersed with moments¬†of abject¬†terror.”

There are times when daily news presents nothing but trivial stories that mean little to the conscious plane of activism. There are no marches. Absent are the rallies and speeches, save the prattling of political candidates.

These are what we call the days of unimaginable dread, while we take a deep breath and wait for the abject terror of the next oppressive measure to be taken.

Unless you stop for a moment and reflect on all that has grown silent in so strangely a sudden manner. Have you noticed that all these things are coming to a boiling point, all at the same time?

It reminds us of the Hollywood production with George Clooney caught in “The Perfect Storm.” But at the end of the production, no one can shout “CUT!” and take it to the editing room to get rid of all the ugly things.

No editor can clear the picture of;

  • TPP
  • TPIP
  • TISA
  • Climate Change
  • Iran
  • Syria
  • Iraq
  • Somalia
  • Thailand
  • Kashmir
  • Venezuela
  • North Korea
  • Russia
  • Ukraine
  • China
  • Greece
  • Terror Groups

George went down with his ship. After years of apathy, is that what YOU are waiting for?
