"In separateness lies the world's great misery,
in compassion lies the world's true strength."
- The Buddha

The One-State Vision and Foundational Principles of a Republic in Historic Palestine is imperative to dissolve the Jewish state of Israel. Such a state, which has no basis other than a fascistic narrative constructed out of paranoia and mythology, has
 no legitimacy in our world. It embodies all of the characteristics that humanity has resoundingly rejected in the last century - colonialism, racism, ethnic cleansing,
 apartheid and genocide. The dehumanization and destruction of a people, along with the dispossession of their land and property, is utterly intolerable. The only feasible
alternative is its replacement by a pluralistic, democratic state that includes the Palestinians as equals. There is no other viable solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
Every day since 2002, more or less, I have been offering a carefully selected collection of relevant writings
 from across the Web. It's just me, my
self and I publishing this website on a barebones budget.

All good things must come to an end

I made an attempt, after 15 years devoted to this website, to do some marketing - technical under the hood stuff and a few weeks on Facebook. I had made up my mind to close up shop if the attempt was a failure. It has been just that. Seems that the great majority of my natural audience took the "liberal," elitist, politically correct, boutique variety of the blue pill. I got lucky and got the red pill at the corner discount drugstore and never regretted it.

So fare thee well, my friends - I'm taking a hike. Email me if you'd like to discuss anything. My address is here.)

Love to all. It's really the only thing that will get us through.. universal compassion, along with at least a modicum of wisdom, caring for all beings we come in contact with and last, but decidedly not least, tough love when and where it's called for..

Hey, we can go out on a high note! Some political courage and sanity for a change..
