Russia...really? What about our meddling? U.S. doesn’t meddle?

When you see an advertisement for a pizza joint that says their pizza is better than the competition...the ad doesn’t spend your money on their pizza—you do. You make a choice. And if you don’t like their pizza, you choose not to continue supporting their advertisement by not eating their pizza...even though the ad continues to berate and belittle the competition’s pizza. Choices. Get my drift? When you see a political ad that berates and belittles the competition, the ad doesn’t force your hand and control the pen or keystroke that casts your vote. You make a choice. And when it comes to voting for the people who take our tax $$ and spend it at their every whim, if you haven’t checked out t

Only the closed mind is certain...

"Only the closed mind is certain." (Alan Sharp) Have a think on it... Education powers thought. Thoughts generate action. Actions fuel the planet...for better or for worse. ... What if it just started raining?! #whatifitjuststartedraining #wiijsr #kambimbi #kambimbiacademy

Reason itself had become suspect; mutual tolerance was seen as treachery.

“In the vortex of this debate, once the battle lines were sharply drawn, moderate ground everywhere became hostage to the passions of the two sides. Reason itself had become suspect; mutual tolerance was seen as treachery. Vitriol overcame accommodation. And [the issue] would not just fade away.” (Jay Winik, April 1865, 2001) Sounds familiar - 152 years later...not much has changed. Societies & technologies evolve...but human nature never changes. We should be better. Don't fan the flames. Don't fuel the fire. Put it out. Individual and collective human choice are the most powerful change agents known to mankind. Vote. Dialogue. Run for office. If you can't do any of the above, leave and fi

We are the same...

If you start from any other premise that we share more in common than our differences as humans...then you are part of the problem. Disagreement? Ok. No problem. Still the same. Human. Skin color different? Still the same. Human. Tribe different? Still the same. Human. Religion different? Still the same. Human. Gender different? Still the same. Human. Political views different? Still the same. Human. Sexual preference different? Still the same. Human. Economic class different? Still the same. Human. President or Prime Minister of a country? Still the same. Human. Education and opportunities different? Still the same. Human. Bank account bigger? Still the same. Human. Goo

The reason there will be no change...

“The reason there will be no change is because the people who stand to lose from change have all the power. And the people who stand to gain from change have none of the power.” (Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli) It's not just the poverty industry... Government, Inc. (pick a country, any country) Congress, Inc. Senate, Inc. NRA, Inc. Industrial Military Complex, Inc. Private Security Industry, Inc. Special Interest, Inc. Democratic Party, Inc. Republican Party, Inc. "Fill in the blank", Inc. -- all flavors and all labels of human special interest and organization are "in the business" of keeping "we the people" right where we are--so long as we don't forget to vote and send them our money

We are all made from the same clay...

"The chief has been very generous to us here, and he reminds me, yet again, that we are all made of the same clay." (Lost City of Z, Amazon Studios & Bleeker Street) There is only one human race. ... Education powers thought. Thoughts generate action. Actions fuel the planet...for better or for worse.

When we hate...

"When hate enters the heart of humans there is no wall high enough that will keep evil from destroying a nation… for when hate enters the hearts of her people, evil is already on the inside." (Coren Jonathan Allen, What if it Just Started Raining?) We have always lived along side hate... And we always will live along side hate... But we must beat it back into the shadows--where it belongs. It doesn't matter the reasons why we hate...when we hate we tear the world apart... Skin color, tribe, religion, gender, politics, tax bracket, immigration status, personal grievance...pick a label--they are all the same when it comes to the EXCUSES used to hate...and further justify unthinkable actions on
