When you actually ignore reality for years on end, the payback is a bitch brother! ... We're seeing just frantic collisions of fundamentalist delusion with objective reality... We're on a kind of slider bar between the unthinkable and the unimaginable now, bteween the grim meathook future and the bright green future. There are ways out of this situation; there are actual ways to move the slider bar from one side to the other, except that we haven't invented the words for them yet.
...
We have to become the change we wanna see. Become the change we wanna see. What I have learned from hanging out with the eastern europe dissident crowd? Make no decision out of fear.

Los, kommt. Lasst uns den Sturm bauen, der die alte Kruste wegfegt, der mit Kreativität und Spiel und Wut allen Wirtschaftshuren der Welt den blanken Arsch zeigt!
