Kerouac Quote #2

  “What does it mean that I am in this endless universe, thinking that I’m a man sitting under the stars on the terrace of the earth, but actually empty and awake throughout the emptiness and awakedness of everything? It means that I’m empty and awake, that I know I’m empty and awake, and that there’s no difference between me and anything else.”
— Jack Kerouac

Thoughts on Syria

I have to laugh (or maybe more of a guffaw) when America takes on the role of the world’s morality enforcers. With this country’s long history of doing horrible shit to people, [Slavery, native American genocide, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Dresden, Vietnam, Fallujah and drone killings], just to name a few, we can hardly be the arbiters of good and evil on this planet. Any action taken on Syria has little to do with a chemical attack and more to do with power and greed.
