Sadly, among the innumerable failure and deceits of the current culture, one of the largest omissions is the recognition that from peace comes joy. The propaganda, religiosity, and belief codes we've faced from a corrupt system have left us traumatized. We do not think clearly. Donald Trump is Exhibit A. Hillary is exhibit B. And yet as the Three Truths describes, our intent is our most powerful tool in interpreting reality and in making decisions that reflect our true selves. So it is ever our decision right now that allows for a sense of peace.
These are tumultuous times. Actually, this is fucking crazy. We're in the wildest of times, as the inequality of an economic system that is controlled by a handful of elites who care nothing for humanity, us and our sisters and brothers, at all. They are 'happy' to ruin our lives and our Earth for their maniacal ends. But change, some call it revolution, is in the air. Most obviously recognized in the Sanders presidential campaign, we will not go quietly into the night any longer as the forces of a broken system try to continue their plunder. It is not to be.
