Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Reaction

I just read Warbler's post, though I guess Slag and I talked about it yesterday. He was saying how depressing it was that, yes, all of this is true. It reminds you of all that, of V for Vendetta and 1984, and for that matter, how many of these people Warbler talks about hijack the word "Orwellian".

There is nothing I have to add to the previous post other than this:

"our job is to make life worth living on this earth, which is the only earth we have"
(Orwell, "Reflections on Ghandi")

This terrible thing that is happening to America, not strictly my country, belongs to us all; and in that sense the issue is universal.

So then what? Doesn't that mean something should be done? Surely something constructive can be done with all this anger? Anybody want to join their local Democrats? Or if you aren't into political action, or if like me, you feel that political involvement is not appropriate for you, then look at social jusice. If you are religious, then now is the time to stand out, and represent those who aren't conservatives, and who are active. Or maybe you want to look into more general social activities. It doesn't matter. I can give you plenty of tips.
