It is essential that we develop effective alternatives to society’s current patterns of violence. We will work to demilitarize, and eliminate weapons of mass destruction, without being naive about the intentions of other governments.
The Climate of Fear
From Green Papers, March 25, by Jennifer Sullivan
It’s never enough. The greed. The downplaying. The usual. Once again the climate of fear that the Twin Powers of Politics have created to play their on going “good-cop-bad-cop” routine has reared it’s ugly head. Trayvon Martin shot in cold blood.
Part of the reason that the Green Party exists is to decry this ongoing injustice!
The story isn’t new. It goes back to when people were purchased, transported & sold out of Africa. It’s the Freedom Riders and the Emmett Till (brutally slaugtered for — gasp — maybe whistling at a white woman). It’s when neighborhood organizers were portrayed as “hoods” by unethical cops & then hunted & killed. Such was the case of Fred Hampton, in Chicago, taken out by the FBI. Being any sort of excellent black leader could fare no better, as we all know, Martin Luther King Jr. & Malcolm X. They were both shot, surprisingly, after they each realized that peace was the answer to violence.
