Why do people keep trying to create peace by attacking?

My Last Loss

I’m looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. After a long life of accumulated regrets and losses, there’s one final loss waiting for me. It can’t be avoided, and I’ve had plenty of time to consider what must ultimately become of me. The worst torture of life might be the knowing that you’ll die.

There’s one consolation. It will be my last loss.
It’s all out there. The truth of our history is waiting to be learned.

The ways of the world are discoverable, but the problem is that each of us is born ignorant. We can only fight against the oppression we know, the oppression we can recognize. I keep aging, just as everyone does, and I keep learning additional snippets that give me a greater understanding of the invisible cage I live in. The more I learn, the more powerful I become and the closer I get to being able to break out. Unfortunately, as I age and become more knowledgeable, I age and get closer to death. A dead slave cannot fight to correct the system.

We age. We learn. We become disgusted by the truth. We start to figure out how to fight back, but we die before we can do much of anything. The young behind us must go through the same learning period before they have a chance of fighting it. The power structure stays in place because it hides. It relies on the limited lifetimes of individual humans as a primary defense. It also continuously acts to restrict or remove information from the common culture that would reveal itself.

How do we, the common people, fight such a system? We can fight it in two ways. First, we must ensure that the information about the true history of the oppression of the majority by the minority be freely available to all. Second, we must ensure that such information becomes and remains a primary part of the education of all new people. Then, even though we die, we can ensure the protection and freedom of the people who live after us.
Music means as much as you let it.
How much money something will make for the one percent is not a good enough reason to do it.
My nuclear family exploded.
The Earth never crosses it's own path. Not only is it not in a circular orbit around the sun, it is not even in an elliptical orbit around the sun. Everything drifts. Nothing matches the architype perfectly. None of us is perfect. Everything is imperfect. The imperfections create our identity. The only way I know I exist is by my variation from the ideal. I am error. I am alive.
People who purposely decrease the font size only make it harder for others to get their message. It's not cute. It's obstructive.
She acts like she's part of me, as if we are unified and stronger for it, but she can withdraw her participation anytime she wants and leave me destitute. I am whole, complete, strong, and realized, but I can be alone again in a moment.
