The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Returning to normal?


So what actually
is normal?

Is normal endless
US-NATO military
war games?

Seven US wars
currently underway,
that's normal?

Is it normal
that Mother Earth
is thrashing about
in toxic shock?

Is normal
massive profits
for health insurance,
resource extraction,
weapons production
corporations?

Is normal
the string of US
bio-warfare labs
around the globe
(particularly along
Russia's border)?

Is normal
the choking
traffic snarls
in major cities
around the globe?

Is it normal
that the oceans
are collapsing,
sea-life threatened?

Is normal
the growing
amount of aluminum
in our soil
and our bodies?
Where does it come from?

So let's talk about
a new normal......

End the wars
convert the war machine,
public transit rather
than electric cars,

Conservation
and rejection
of consumerism

Free health care for all
Free public education
Shut down
fossil fuel industry

Stop glorifying
the growth culture
as if it were
inscribed in the bible

Walk, ride a bike,
spend time with your family,
pets, garden

Tax the rich
and giant corporations
Stop the oligarchs
control of Congress.
Reject the mafia-style
control of Washington.

Forget about planning
war in space.
Cut that budget.

Take care of every human
on Earth,
which would lead to the
stabilization of
global population

Once we do these things
then maybe we can
talk about normal.

When we truly listen to,
and embrace,
indigenous wisdom,
become
Earth-centered
spiritual beings
again,
then we might be heading
back toward
some kind of 
new normal.

Bruce
