On political identification

[Wrote this on 4/16/07]

Political boundaries are so powerful, so embedded in our conscience and consciousness that not only do we live within their confines, we also feel according to them. I’m not condemning things as they are – simply observing, for I have a firm and sincere belief that things are this way not due to any one person or group’s evil actions or intentions.

First there was the human. Then came man and woman, followed by the Christian, the Jew, the Hindu, the African. Then came the royalty and the peasantry, the proprietors and the slaves. Now what do we have? Muslims, gays, lesbians, disabled, Afghani, Iraqi, etc. etc. The labels just keep piling up don’t they?
