In Jail

Sing though they beat you

Never give your namettriStand in solidarity, not

Letting them take away any co-warrior

Demonstrate again

The lawyers will come

In spite of the agonyIMG_0937Bring toenail clippers to cut

The plastic handcuffs

The news returns

So much tear gas blew the other way

The convention had to shut down

Awhile

The Liver and onions of a true democracy

Is protest

Recount O Bard these tales

The actions stream forwardkajsgIncant them into being

International exploitation

Still continues

60 Limitations >>> 61 Inner Truth

The changing line is on how limitations too severe are self defeating, bringing physical imbalance in the realm of asceticism and revolt in the realm of governance.

In the case of the UK story this seems to apply to the lobbying law. Also in trying to eliminate pest insects we encourage their eventual rebound in epidemic proportions (not in story) and decimate the natural populations we rely on for food pollination. Actually I can see it in all five stories.

Also Global Marches Against Monsanto, GMOs

Although I don’t know if all their claims are valid, it does seem to me that GMOs are not proven safe, particularly if some virus began moving the terminator gene or roundup gene to other parts of the food web. Outside possibility, but the longer we keep this up the more likely it will become.
