Re the vid you sent me
Here is a link, worth a watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geIni_BwjGw&feature=share
***** Sister J, McKibben's my brother. I love him. I believe it is existentially impossible that any of us, with any breath, to not do our best. He is doing the best he knows.
I could only stomach watching the last few minutes of this vid.
McKibbben is a stake through the heart of all hope - he has no historical, physical, technological, scientific... basis, excuse, for saying:
A. We may not win (this is criminal bankruptcy of leadership as he insists on ALWAYS saying it);
B. A new twist (?) - we cannot even pay the price that King's folks did - they won't shoot us - DEATH FAST???? FOR EXAMPLE????).
NO, THE TRUTH IS WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE... IF ENOUGH OF US PAID, IN MONTHS, NOT YEARS, THE PRICE THAT THE CIVIL RIGHT'S WORKERS PAID OVER DECADES.
WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE... IF ENOUGH OF US PAID, OR OFFERED, THAT PRICE, IN COMING MONTHS. WE COULD NOT LOSE....
THE INSANITY IS TOO GREAT THAT WE ARE PERPETRATING, THIS ECOCIDE, NEEDLESS, NEEDLESS, ECONOMICALLY INSANE.... ECOCIDE.
"WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE, WE COULD NOT LOSE... IF ENOUGH OF US OFFER THE PRICE OF OUR LIVES, NOW. WE'D WIN INFINITELY FASTER, AS LOWER PRICE BY ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE, WINNING MORE THAN ANY GROUP IN HISTORY BY ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE... "
THIS SHOULD BE HIS MESSAGE - WE, BY EVERY HISTORICAL, FINANCIAL, PHYSICAL, SCIENTIFIC, TECHNOLOGICAL MEASURE - WE CANNOT LOSE IF ENOUGH OF US PAY, OR TOTALLY BEGIN TO PAY, OFFER TO PAY - THE TOTAL PRICE OF OUR LIVES, NOW.
SEE IT, SISTER J, THEN...
TELL HIM, SISTER J.
