In or Out?

I feel pulled in two different directions in response to injustice in the world. One instinct is to withdraw from human confusion and seek an island of inner peace. The opposite instinct is engagement. However appealing it may be for me to drop out, I feel there is something selfish about it, since the only person’s problems I would be solving are my own.

Victory!

I’m not suddenly convinced that the U.S. has stopped being a predatious empire, but just for today I want to say, “Thank you, CIA, and thank you, intelligence community, for taking a stand against war!”
